Although acupuncture is most frequently used to treat pain, it is also effective for other conditions like metabolic disorders, skin conditions, and mental health.
Acupuncture enhances the body’s capacity for self-healing. Even if acupuncture is unable to treat a condition, it may lessen the need for medicine and enhance overall health.
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. It usually involves the insertion of very thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body to cause a therapeutic effect. Acupuncture may include other methods such as aquapuncture, in which fluid is injected into the acupuncture point, or electro-acupuncture, in which a small current of electricity is passed between acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture can provide pain relief, promote tissue healing processes, regulate gastrointestinal motility, decrease inflammation, reduce fevers, and help regulate the immune system.
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Jung, who in 2011 received her veterinary medicine degree from the University of Minnesota. She then went to Chi University in Florida and became a certified veterinary acupuncturist and food therapist in addition to being a veterinarian.
