  Acupuncture Basics  

Lake at Dusk

   Make your heart like a lake with a calm, still surface and great depths of kindness. 

-Lao Tzu

Acupuncture is a broad term encompassing many techniques, all of which involve inserting small needles or injections into the skin at defined points, called acupoints, to achieve balance and healing throughout the body.

Qi (chi) is the life force within all living creatures, and the universe itself. Acupuncture helps maintain and rebuild the balance of the body, the mind, and help reconnect the pet to the harmony of the universe.

Acupuncture utilizes Qi Meridians and Classical Points within the pet's body to unblock the flow of Qi and restore balance and health.

Acupuncture is drug free, safe, and most pets require 15 or fewer needles per treatment. Many conditions can be helped with acupuncture:


  • Arthritis​

  • Anxiety​

  • Skin conditions​

  • GI upset (vomiting, IBD, diarrhea​

  • Tendons/ligaments​

  • Fearfulness​

  • And many more!
