What is Equine Acupuncture? How does it work?

 Equine 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.

Acupuncture 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.
