What Is Acupuncture and What Is Involved?
Acupuncture has been used successfully for thousands of years and comes from Traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on balancing the energy systems in the body.
Very fine sterile needles are inserted at acupuncture points to activate and balance the energy channels connected to the area of the body which is injured or diseased – to rebalance and promote healing.
Inserting needles may look scary, but you don’t need to worry – they are so fine, they really are painless and many animals find acupuncture treatments positively relaxing.
Acupuncture is now fully approved as an effective treatment by RCVS. One of our vets, Ian Killian regularly treats patients with acupuncture. The number of treatment sessions needed tends to vary between 1 and 5. The intervals between depend on the response to the previous treatment. It is usually possible to assess the quality of response likely to be achieved 3 – 7 days after the first treatment.
