Holistic & Positive
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a form of holistic veterinary care. It is the stimulation of specific points on the body with needles, light, heat or electricity to achieve healing and balance energy flow. It is one of the five branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The ancient Chinese people discovered and mapped 173 points in animals called acupuncture points or "Shu-xu". Modern research shows stimulation of these points releases beta-endorphin, serotonin and other neurotransmitters. Acupuncture for pain relief is well established, and its benefits in treating seizure, hormonal imbalances, diarrhea, constipation, cough, allergies, kidney disease and asthma are also documented.
