Acupuncture is an excellent way to provide holistic care for acute problems, and bring pain relief and quality of life back to the patient with chronic ailments. Most acupuncture points have specialized nerve bundles that respond to acupuncture therapy. This has beneficial effects at all levels of the nervous system, which can lead to better function of all body systems — reducing pain, accelerating healing, balancing the immune system, and a wide host of other positive responses. Acupuncture recruits the body’s own healing powers to reduce or eliminate a disease…and we just happen to have the perfect veterinarian for the job.
