What is acupuncture?

This ancient art of treatment developed thousands of years ago in China involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points in the body to produce physiologic responses which result in a healing effect.

The Ancient Chinese said that illness was a state of imbalance or blockage in the normal energy flows of the body and that acupuncture, acting on the channels of energy flow, restored them to normal. Modern research has shown that acupuncture can affect most body systems.

Partner, Chris Monk, has been using acupuncture successfully for many years and has passed the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society Examination. He is a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists (ABVA).

Acupuncture is especially useful in cases of arthritis, back pain, chromic catarrh, chronic diarrhoea, disc disease, hip dysplasia, incontinence and injuries involving the ligaments, tendons and muscles.
The average number of treatments is about four with treatments given usually once a week to begin with, then at longer intervals according to progress.
Acupuncture is a useful form of therapy especially for conditions that do not respond well to orthodox means.
