Acupuncture is the use of very small needles placed in the skin at strategic locations to stimulate a healing response in the equine body. Acupuncture is used in conjunction with traditional medicine to treat musculoskeletal, skin, respiratory, gastrointestinal and reproductive problems. Acupuncture treatment promotes relaxation of the muscles at the site of needle insertion as well as stimulates the body to release anti-inflammatory and pain relieving substances. Acupuncture can also increase tissue blood flow, oxygenation and stimulate a nerve response, and regeneration in the case of nerve damage.
