What is Equine Acupuncture? How does it work?
Acupuncture is a treatment modality that uses very fine needles (acu) at
specific points along channels known as “Meridians” that are inserted through
the skin (puncture) to treat or prevent disease. Acupuncture and Traditional
Chinese Medicine has been used in China for thousands of years!! Traditional
Chinese Medical theory and current scientific research has blended to give the
current Acupuncture techniques. These meridians are closely associated with
nerves and vessels and stimulation of these points has the ability to alter
biochemical and physiological factors to achieve regulation, balance and healing.
can be compared to power lines and electricity. The power lines are equivalent
to the Meridians and the electricity is equivalent to Qi (the energy force that
runs through the meridians and body - pronounced Chee). By stimulating points along these power
lines we can amplify or control the amount of Qi running through the Meridian, cause
pain relief and return the body to a state of balance.
