Acupuncture helps the body heal itself. This practice utilizes hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. The virtually painless procedure places small needles in specific points of the body to stimulate nerve, muscle and collagen fibers. The process triggers a substrate release, activating cells and nerve fibers to promote healing and pain relief, while energizing nerves to help a wide array of medical conditions and overall immune support.
Many disorders can be treated with acupuncture including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Nervous disorders
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Musculoskeletal systemic problems including hip dysplasia, arthritis, intervertebral disc disease and torn ligaments
- Skin conditions
- Respiratory problems like Sinusitis and Rhinitis (Nasal problems)
Veterinary acupuncture is one of the safest veterinary treatments available, requiring no pharmaceutical assistance and removing the possibility of overdose or adverse reaction. It can also be safely used in conjunction with traditional veterinary practice to enhance treatment effects or facilitate faster recovery.
