Acupuncture is a therapy based on the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body in order to relieve pain and improve health. It works by stimulating bundles of nerves and blood vessels under the skin which activates the body’s natural pain blocking and healing systems.
Acupuncture has been used successfully in animals to treat the following:
Musculoskeletal pain (pain originating from muscles and bone)
Neurological conditions and nerve damage
(pain from internal organs such as the gut or bladder or reproductive organs)
Urinary problems such as incontinence or urine retention
Skin complaints such as wound healing, itchiness and compulsive licking.
