For centuries the healing art of acupuncture, which dates back to ancient China, has been practiced on animals. Acupuncture can unblock healing energy in pets and boost the immune system, which aids in self-healing. Acupuncture stimulates your pet’s own immune system to release endorphins and hormones, while at the same time decreasing inflammation.
Timeline for Treatment
When an animal is unhealthy, there is an imbalance or interference with their energy flow. The veterinary acupuncturist manipulates your pet’s healing energy by stimulating specific acupuncture points, which alleviates the imbalance or blockage.
Most often acupuncture is used to treat orthopedic issues such as arthritis. However, acupuncture can also be used to treat a variety of other conditions including behavioral disorders, hormonal imbalance, metabolic conditions, skin disease, and seizures.
