What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing. Originating in China over 3,000 years ago, traditional acupuncture is the oldest continually practiced medical system in the world.  The fundamental principles of acupuncture are to treat the patient as an integrated whole and to identify and remedy the root cause of disease. It can be used to relieve pain or to improve the function of various organ systems in an animal's body.

In Western terms, acupuncture can assist the body to heal itself by affecting certain physiological changes.  Acupuncture can stimulate nerves, increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasms and cause the release of hormones such as endorphins (one of the body's pain control chemicals) and cortisol (a natural steroid).  By stimulating specific points on the body with the use of fine needles, blocked energy or Qi is released and health is restored.

"Since his acupuncture treatment this afternoon, my dog is his old self! I am astounded at the change in so short a period of time. His lethargy and anxiety have passed and he is as lively, curious, exuberant and head-strong as he was before he was hit by the car. In fact, he's a little better. I think you also remedied the old discomfort in his spine that had been bothering him for some time. Thank you very much."

Will my Pet like Acupuncture?


Most dogs and cats tolerate acupuncture quite well and will often go to sleep once the needles have been placed.  Occasionally an animal will react to the needle placement but it is rare for an animal to be completely intolerant of acupuncture needles.

When animals are in chronic pain, animals may require weekly or bi-weekly visits through four to six treatments.  Follow up visits are scheduled based on the response to the initial treatment.  For acute problems like diarrhea or vomiting, a single treatment coupled with an herbal prescription may resolve the situation.
