Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to achieve therapy and balance. It works through stimulating a highly complex network of pathways called meridians. These meridians connect with internal organs and points along these meridians are used to stimulate energies (Qi) and fluids of the body.
The use of acupuncture has become an established profession in Australia, so why not for your pet? In fact the first ever veterinary text book, Bole’s Canon of Veterinary Acupuncture and Moxibustion by Bole Zhenjing, published in China between 659 B.C. to 621 B.C. was based on acupuncture use in horses. Acupuncture in animals soon expanded and incorporated cattle, camels, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats and just about any feathered, furred or scaly friend.
Acupuncture can be used for healing just about any condition treated by conventional medicine, not just for pain relief as most commonly recognised. The sessions are actually very relaxing, some even sleep, and for those patients who can, all voluntarily come in and get on the custom made bed waiting for their session.
