Whether practiced as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or evidence-based veterinary medicine, acupuncture uses the insertion of needles at various designated points to alter the body’s biochemistry. Some of the actions of acupuncture include stimulating the release of the body’s natural pain relievers, modulation of the immune system, and activation of natural mechanisms that promote a balanced, healthful state. Acupuncture has also been shown to relieve physical and emotional stress, increase circulation, provide anti inflammatory effects, and accelerate tissue healing.
