Veterinary acupuncture is a complementary therapy that involves the insertion of thin needles
into specific points on an animal's body to stimulate the body's natural healing process. This
therapy has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety
of health conditions in humans and animals.
Acupuncture points have been documented and mapped in humans as well as animals and are
connected to each other via meridians or channels, which are pathways that correlate to
different organ systems. They often follow peripheral nerve pathways.
In veterinary acupuncture, the acupuncturist will carefully select the acupuncture points to
target specific areas of the body, based on the animal's medical history, physical examination
including a Chinese Medicine exam, and clinical signs. The acupuncture needles are inserted
into these points to stimulate the acupoint that are often near nerve endings, which can trigger
a release of natural painkillers (i.e. endorphins), improve blood circulation to the targeted area
and stimulate stem cells for healing.
