Evidence for the benefitial effects of acupuncture is strongly and continually increasing. Well done studies show that benefits do exist for a wide range of disorders including musculoskeletal problems, gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary disorders, and neurological dysfunction. Endorphins, serotonin and norepinephrine release are important in the analgesic effects produced. Acupuncture, in addition, will induce relaxation of muscle tension. It also provides benefits to cancer patients including pain reduction, elimination of nausea and improves glandular function following chemo or radiation therapy.
We have been offering this modality of the Traditional Chinese Medicine for seven years now. It is used as sole therapy for pain control on arthritic patients unable to use pharmaceuticals due to their adverse effects. It is also used in conjunction with routine medications in order to decrease the amount of medication needed. At Animal Health & Rehab we also utilize a great variety of Veterinary Chinese Herbs Formulas as compliment to the regular medication, and in some cases in place of it.
