Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

By January 2, 2018

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing modality that involves placing needles at particular points along the body to stimulate and encourage healing and bring the body back into balance. It is excellent at relieving pain, but it can also be used to treat a variety of internal medicine conditions and skin conditions.

Chinese herbal therapy involves giving plant-based herbal formulas to pets in order to treat a variety of health problems, such as kidney disease, liver disease, hormonal imbalances such as diabetes, and others. Herbal therapies can be used alone but are often used in conjunction with acupuncture.
