Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on channels within the body in order to cause a therapeutic effect.
Commonly, it uses other methods like electronic stimulation, aqua-acupuncture, and moxibustion in addition to needling. Acupoints are areas on the body where there is a high density of nerve endings and blood and lymphatic vessels. Research has shown that stimulating these acupoints releases substances that have anti-inflammatory and restorative effects within the body.
Studies show that acupuncture is useful in treating many conditions including arthritis, muscle soreness and pain, back problems like IVDD, seizures, diarrhea, constipation, skin problems, asthma, chronic liver and kidney disease, geriatric weakness, Cushing’s disease, reproductive problems and pain relief in hospice situations.
“I brought my dog here for the first time this week and I must say this place was one of the best vets I have been to! Very informative, very nice, and very helpful! I had to bring my toddler and they were very helpful with keeping him busy while I spoke with the vet! Most definitely will be coming back here, and I have already started recommending this place to family and friends! Thank y'all so very much!!”
