Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that has been used to trigger a physiological response in humans and animals for over 3000 years. At Move Unleashed, we use acupuncture to help relieve pain in dogs, cats and horses.
Acupuncture involves the placement of thin, stainless steel needles into specific points on the body. These points are located along 14 major energy pathways, or channels, that carry Qi (pronounced “chee”) throughout the body. The placement of needles in these points can help stimulate the body’s immune and nervous systems and release endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers).
