Western medicine relies heavily on pharmaceutical management of disease and illness signs, while eastern medicine works to realign and restore the body’s natural healing processes.
When your pet receives an acupuncture treatment, tiny needles inserted at specific points on the body work to stimulate the body’s healing mechanisms. Acupuncture can promote the body to heal itself, stimulates the release of release of the body's anti-inflammatory and pain relief chemicals, relaxes the muscles, improves blood flow, increases oxygenation, and aids in the removal of metabolic wastes and toxins. This treatment modality does not create adverse side effects, nor does it interact with any medications or supplements.
Food and herbal therapy can be used to decrease inflammation and increase energy levels, as well as heal organ dysfunction. Taking a holistic approach reduces your pet's exposure to potentially adverse side effects from medicine-based western treatments.
