Veterinary Medical Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), although relatively new to the Western World is a medical system that has been used in China to treat animals for thousands of years. It is an adaption and extension of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to treat humans. 

The take home message for acupuncture is the following: A needle is inserted into an acupoint to create a physiologic change. This physiologic change may include beta-endorphin and endogenous opioid release to achieve pain management. Other physiologic changes may include immune system stimulation and muscle relaxation. These changes are the basis of clinical treatment. Chinese herbal therapy may also be used in combination with acupuncture to achieve balance.
