What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture focuses on energy, or Qi, instead of the biological and chemical processes of the animal’s body. This concept is the main distinction between Eastern and Western medicine. The Traditional Chinese Medicine theory is that energy flows through certain meridians, or pathways, in the body and corresponds to respective internal organs or body parts. To create or move energy throughout the body in patients, a veterinary acupuncturist utilizes the practice of dry needling, aquapuncture, or electroacupuncture based on the patient’s underlying conditions or presentation.
