Acupuncture has been practiced on animals for thousands of years, even though it is most famous for treating humans. Acupuncture is a technique that includes inserting very fine needles into the skin at specific spots along the meridians.
Acupuncture is the use of sterile thin needles to stimulate specific points in the body. Stimulation of these points generates the flow of Qi through specific channels in the body called meridians. Qi is the animating force that allows cells, organs, and systems to function. The body is designed to maintain balance (homeostasis). Disease processes, lifestyle excesses and deficiencies, unhealthy habits, and even negative thoughts counteract the body’s ability to maintain balance, resulting in disease symptoms. Acupuncture is used to resolve symptoms by restoring balance and health. This healing process begins with the flow of Qi.
