Acupuncture is an effective tool in many areas of veterinary medicine. The goal of acupuncture is to promote the body to heal itself and keep the body in balance. Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels reside that are called acupuncture points. These run throughout the body via meridians (energy channels). Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, stimulates the nervous system, and releases both anti-inflammatory and pain relieving hormones. One of the benefits of acupuncture is that it can be used in conjunction with any conventional therapy.
