Certified Pet Acupuncture & Herb

 

This hot trend in pet care is 3,000 years old. Acupuncture works by affecting Qi, or life energy, which flows throughout the body 24 hours per day via a system of invisible pathways. By inserting hair-thin needles into certain prescribed sites along the meridians, Pets can balance the Qi, getting rid of stagnation and removing congestion of blood; therefore, good health can be maintained. Relief after needling is due to the release of natural pain killing brain chemicals called endorphins. Depending upon the nature, severity and duration of diseases, a single treatment may be enough for an acute condition. However, a series of 3 to 10 treatments can solve many chronic problems. Each session may take 20 to 40 minutes. Oral herbal treatment called daily acupuncture with concurrent acupuncture will bring the best outcome for your senior Pets. "Elderly animals benefit most," says Dr. Song.
