Alternative & Holisitc Veterinary Medicine
Veterinary Medical Acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been used for thousands of years. It combines Chinese healing techniques with views from Western medicine. Veterinary Medical Acupuncture involves inserting sterile needles into specific points in the body. The treatment can help enhance blood circulation and release endorphins which can lead to pain relief and overall well-being. The needles used are very small, minimally invasive, and virtually painless.
Typically, we think about acupuncture for arthritis, back problems (like intervertebral disk disease), muscle pain, etc., but it can also be used for respiratory problems, GI disorders, and many other conditions.
We will do our best to make the acupuncture session as stress-free and relaxing as possible. If you are interested or have any other questions, please call us at 763-413-3102.
