Diffused essential oils, dimmed lights and soothing music create a calm atmosphere for your dog or cat to undergo an acupuncture treatment.
Traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM) is a medical system that has been used to treat animals in China for thousands of years. The practice of amimal acupuncture relies on meridian (energy) lines and acupoints transposed from humans to animals. The ancient Chinese discovered 361 acupoints in humans and 173 acupoints in animals.
Acupuncture is defined as the stimulation of a specific point on the body with a method that results in a therapeutic, balanced effect. Research has indicated that most acupoints are present in areas where there is a high number of nerve endings, small arterioles, and lymph vessels and stimulation releases beta-endorphins, neurotransmitters, and serotonin.
When is acupuncture indicated?
Musculoskeletal problems (disc disease, osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease)
