What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient practice dating back thousands of years to China, where it has been used to treat a variety of conditions in both humans and animals. The purpose of this practice is to produce a healing response in the body by inserting needles into specific points, called acupoints. Each acupoint has a specific effect on other tissues and organ systems within the body when stimulated. It is the response that aim to correct imbalances and restore balance to the body.
Today, acupuncture is used all around the world, as both medical therapy and as a form of preventative medicine. To maximize its benefits, acupuncture is commonly used in conjunction with Western medicine, to treat a wide variety of conditions in numerous species. Research into the scientific basis of acupuncture continues to advance, and positive benefits have been demonstrated in both humans and animals. Acupuncture is not indicated in every medical condition, and it may not succeed when traditional medicine has failed; however it can provide undeniable benefits for a wide variety of ailments.
In companion animals, acupuncture is indicated for a number of problems, including conditions of the following systems:
