How Acupuncture Can Help



How Acupuncture Can Help

Pet acupuncture can help a wide range of problems in dogs and cats.

According to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, optimal health is achieved via a relative balance in the whole body and the harmonious flow of blood and energy (called Qi or chi). Conventional medicine refers to this balance as homeostasis.  Disease or dis-equilibrium appears when the balance is disturbed.

Imbalances are common, and can occur in one or more body systems. TCVM associates these systems with organ names, such as liver, heart, spleen, lung and kidney, whereas western medicine refers to these as the circulatory, nervous, muscle/skeletal, and endocrine systems.

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui-Na manipulation/massage, and Chinese dietary therapy.
