How Does Acupuncture
For Pets Work?

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TVCM) and other Traditional Philosophies recognize that energy needs to flow freely and orderly through the entire body.  Over thousands of years, TCVM has mapped out Channels or Meridians, which are pathways of energy flow (Qi, or ‘Chi’) through the body. Pain and disease are said to be a blockage of this energy flow. The meridians include paths through all internal organs and all body systems, including behaviors and emotions.  We often find heat, depression, or other indicators at certain acupuncture points during our exam, including TCVM Tongue & Pulse diagnostics.  

Acupuncture needles, unlike hypodermic needles (vaccines, insulin, fluids, drugs) are so thin that they actually slide between microscopic skin cells to stimulate or otherwise affect acupuncture points. The thin acupuncture needles are placed at spots along the Meridian or Channel pathways that were mapped out thousands of years ago. These points have direct connection to and great influence on internal organs, behaviors, disease, musculoskeletal systems, and the Energy flow of the entire body. Our practice of acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy, not modern medical acupuncture because only the Traditional methods can affect the underlying imbalances and causes of disease.

Other Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine:

Chinese Food Therapy:
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and all other Traditional Medicines understand the value of properly sourced and properly harvested & prepared foods. These foods supply not only the physical nourishment that keeps us alive, but different natural whole foods have vastly different effects on individuals of differing constitutions, ages, lifestyles, phases of life, and climates. Sometimes your pet is eating food that just doesn’t agree with their body and can cause imbalances well beyond the assumed GI issues. Chinese Food Therapy is part of the long-term solution that helps maintain balance and wellness.

Chinese Herbs:
Chinese Herbs can most simply be described as concentrated foods & nutrients that will have a greater and faster effect on the body and its organs (compared to just eating or changing foods), which are often used to help correct deficiencies and imbalances.

Many TCVM Master Herbalists and Indigenous Eastern or Western Medicine Peoples will use individual herbs to treat specific conditions, but we often prescribe formulations and blends of herbs created by those experts and masters for a broader treatment effect.
