Local Medical Issues

Veterinary Acupuncture is a form of treatment developed some three-thousand years ago in China. The ancient Chinese maintained that illness is a state of imbalance or blockage in the normal energy flow of the body, and that acupuncture, acting on the channels of energy flow, restores this flow to normal. The American Veterinary Medical Association has called acupuncture an integral part of veterinary medicine. Used along with western medicine, the patient can receive the best of both disciplines. Acupuncture can also be a form of therapy for conditions that do not respond well to western medicine, and it can often improve the quality of an animal's life.

How Acupuncture Works
A tiny needle is inserted into the skin at specific points where nerves innervate the skin or where nerves innervate underlying tissue. The nerve is stimulated. That signal is transferred to the spinal cord and travels to the brain where the body stimulates endorphins which travel back to the organ and skin supplied by the nerve that has been stimulated. Acupuncture increases circulation to areas treated by increasing blood flow, which aids immune stimulation and organ healing.

Acupuncture can be utilized for:
' Musculoskeletal
' Analgesia
' Skin problems
' Nervous disorders
' Respiratory problems
' Urogenital problems
' Cancer
' Liver problems
' Gastrointestinal problems
