Acupuncture is the ancient art of placing needles into specific locations on the body to alleviate pain and increase the animal’s resistance to disease, hence normalising the body system.
It has been practiced by the Chinese and other Eastern cultures for over thousands of years. It has been increasingly integrated and incorporated into Western medical fields and veterinary medicine in recent decades.
Acupuncture may be especially useful in treating chronic states of disease, either to complement orthodox treatments, or when conventional medicine fails.
Patients seen for acupuncture are preferably referred by your own vets.
