How does pet acupuncture work?
At particular points, thin needles are inserted. To promote nerve activity and blood flow, these places are usually in regions of muscular tension and near neurovascular channels. This aids in the relaxation of muscles, the reduction of inflammation, the promotion of healing, and the relief of pain.
What should I expect?
Although some improvement can be noticed after just one treatment, for acute and chronic diseases, three to four weekly treatments are suggested to gain optimum benefit. Following the initial 3 to 4 weekly sessions, monthly sessions are recommended to continue pain management for chronic conditions.
