Acupuncture
 
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical technique used for over 3,000 years in China, Japan and Korea.  Needles are placed in designated points to effect various changes in the body to decrease pain, help heal injuries or disease conditions, stimulate or regulate immune responses, and/or decrease anxiety or behavioral issues. Acupuncture has been shown to increase blood and lymphatic flow to tissues, stimulate nerve function, increase the release of neurotransmitters and pain modulators, influence inflammatory responses and help the release hormones.  It can be used in a variety of conditions.
Common conditions that respond well to acupuncture include:
  • Musculoskeletal conditions (arthritis, spinal disease, trauma, muscle atrophy problems)
  • Immune system disorders (allergic dermatitis, chronic allergic diseases, immune diseases,lick granulomas,chronic skin conditions)
  • Neurologic problems (nerve injury, paresis, paralysis, degenerative neurologic conditions)
  • Systemic diseases/urologic diseases (chronic kidney disease, liver disease, incontinence, bladder problems)
Acupuncture includes treatments using:
  • Dry needles to stimulate points directly
  • Laser acupuncture to stimulate points
  • Aquapuncture, which uses a liquid (such as vitamin B12, Traumeel, saline or other appropriate substances) injected at acupuncture sites, rather than leaving needles in place
  • Electroacupuncture to stimulate points with a mild electric current
  • Acupressure used both in the facility and points can be shown to owners for home use
  • Moxibustion to stimulate points or areas using heat provided by a coal made of Chinese herbs
