What Types of Acupuncture Do You Offer?
In addition to traditional acupuncture, we are proud to offer the following:
- Electroacupuncture increases stimulation through electrical frequencies to specific areas within your pet's body. Studies have shown that this treatment can be beneficial for treating paralysis and other neurologic and internal medicine conditions.
- Laser Acupuncture is an alternative to traditional needle-based acupuncture. The low-level lasers we use do not produce any heat and can help regenerate cells, decrease pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation. Laser Acupuncture is gentle and is often well suited for young, senior, or anxious pets.
- Aquapuncture is the injection of fluids into points. Often this is the injection of Vitamin B12 or homeopathics or Vitamin B12 with homeopathics together. Often we will combine aquapuncture with spinal manipulation to maximize the benefits of the adjustment.
