What is Veterinary Acupuncture?
Simply put, acupuncture is the insertion of needles into specific points throughout your pet's body to induce a healing response. Acupuncture points are mapped and each point correlates to a specific body part, organ or body action when stimulated. Acupuncture is an ancient treatment with thousands of years worth of research and use in both humans and animals. It is proven to reduce chronic pain and inflammation while promoting health and healing. In fact, it has become so mainstream that the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has recognized acupuncture as a treatment option for many common ailments.
What Are the Benefits of Veterinary Acupuncture?
