Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment deveoped more than 2,000 years ago. The goal of acupuncture is to restore the vital energy flow and balance in the body. It is performed by inserting small, sterile needles into specific points on the body surface, which most pets easily accept. Some even fall asleep during treatment! These specific, superficial points on the body stimulate nerve fibers that balance signals going to and from the brain to the rest of the body. By doing this, bodily processes like digestion, glandular activity, and immune status are improved or returned to normal function, thus returning the animal to health.
