Acupuncture involves the insertion of very small needles into the body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels meet. This alternative therapy to Western Medicine infuses Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine into our treatment options for your animal. Performed by Dr. Chris Belan, acupuncture is a great way to stimulate anti-inflammatory and pain relief processes. It helps to improve oxygenation and blood flow into the tissues, as well as removes toxins from the body. With these benefits to the body, we will often see an improved recovery time with our patients, and less need for pain control.
