Veterinary Services – Acupuncture

Most of us have at least rudimentary knowledge of acupuncture. Needles are used to stimulate specific points on the body, chosen based on the results of physical exam. Ancient Chinese medical philosophy explains this by saying this balances the energies in the body. Western research has proven that this is done in a variety of ways, depending on the point chosen. For example, acupuncture can stimulate nerves, increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasms, and cause the release of hormones such as endorphins or cortisol. Here it is most commonly used for musculoskeletal disorders, but it can also assist in therapies for gastrointestinal, respiratory, urinary, dermatologic, or neurolgic disorders.
