Acupuncture involves the insertion of small needles at locations across the body in order to stimulate the nervous system. As the body’s main communication network, the nervous system is capable of altering biochemical and physiologic properties of any intact body system.

Acupuncture can:

  • Increase circulation
  • Modulate the immune system
  • Relieve muscle spasm and pain
  • Release endorphins
  • Optimize healthy nerve transmission
  • Regulate hormone levels

When can acupuncture be used?

  • Arthritis and other joint problems
  • Muscle problems
  • Nervous system and spinal problems
  • Skin problems
  • Digestive tract problems
  • Immune problems
  • Urinary tract problems
  • Allergies
  • And many other disruptions to the body’s function

Safety and pain concerns

For most animals, the insertion of small acupuncture needles is virtually painless. Once the needles are in place, there should be no pain at all. Actually, many animals become very relaxed or sleepy with their needles.

Acupuncture is performed using sterile, single-use needles which minimizes the possibility of infection. And because acupuncture balances the body’s own system of healing and no chemicals are administered, complications rarely, if ever, develop.
