Acupuncture has been used in medical practice to treat humans and animals for more than 3,000 years. The body of research showing its scientific effects for relieving pain and reducing inflammation is steadily growing.
Acupuncture is carried out by our certified veterinary acupuncturist as an adjunct to traditional veterinary treatment. Our Certified Veterinary Acupuncturists (CVA) have extensive training in the field of acupuncture. They combine veterinary and holistic training to treat patients using an integrative approach.
Western research has shown that the placement of fine, sterile needles under the surface of the skin stimulates the body’s nervous system. Acupuncture can work on the local area, the spinal cord and the brain to change the blood flow, inflammation, and pain patterns of the body.
