What is Animal Acupuncture?
In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), when Qi (pronounced chi), or the life force is unbalanced or stagnant; pain and disease can develop. Injuries, diet, environment, and genetics can all impact Qi. Acupuncture uses very fine needles that are placed into acupuncture points to cause a desired healing effect (relieve pain, move Qi and restore balance). Chinese herbs and therapeutic diets are both used in conjunction with acupuncture as medicine to promote whole body healing in the patient.
Research has shown that acupuncture works by stimulating nerves, increasing blood circulation, relieving muscle spasm, and causing the release of hormones, such as endorphins, endogenous opioids, and cortisol. These compounds are the body’s own natural pain relievers and can provide relief from pain and anxiety without pharmaceuticals.
