Acupuncture & TCVM

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is supported by research to treat a variety of medical conditions.  Acupuncture has been proven to affect blood flow, release endorphins, and stimulate nerve impulses.  Chinese herbal formulas are natural medicines based upon tradition but enhanced with modern knowledge.
Neuro (Medical) Acupuncture is still the placement of needles into anatomical locations, but the placement is based upon a thorough knowledge of neuroanatomy and physiology instead of Chinese theory based upon pattern type and 5 elements.  Integrating these two types of acupuncture brings about quicker healing and relief that lasts longer.
