Acupuncture in Veterinary medicine has been used to promote balance in the body’s total energy system and ability to heal. In all animals, there are precise locations on or near the surface of the body known as acupuncture points; these points when stimulated, cause many natural chemicals to be released, which may produce changes in the body’s internal organs and functions. Traditionally, insertion of a fine stainless steel, gold or sterling silver needle into the point influences the acupuncture point(s). Other methods of stimulation include application of heat, electricity, laser light or injection.
The flow of energy and blood may be influenced by the stimulation of acupuncture points. The stimulation of acupuncture points is an attempt to re-establish the proper balance or flow of energy and blood throughout the body. Acupuncture helps to reset the energy system “circuit board” by balancing the flow of energy within the body.
