Acupuncture has been used to treat disease for over 2000 years. It involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points in the body, mainly to alleviate pain but also to treat disease.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture enables the unimpeded flow of ‘qi’ or energy through the body. In Western acupuncture it has been shown to release endorphins (happy hormones), thereby positively affecting the autonomic nervous system.

Animals tolerate acupuncture extremely well and it is used predominantly in the treatment of musculoskeletal disease e.g. osteoarthritis. There are no side effects, which make it ideal for treating older patients with other underlying diseases.
