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.

“We went in with our very sick dog on a Saturday and were treated efficiently by friendly staff. Dr. Marsh was reassuring and compassionate. Ginger was suffering from hemorrhagic colitis. Due to the care we received, she sprung back quickly. We knew Ginger had received excellent care and attention.”
