Acupuncture for your pets?
YES! Dr. Gutierrez is available to provide acupuncture to your pet to help with a variety of issues. Acupuncture is an option for your cat or dog’s wellness and comfort. It helps treat musculoskeletal, neurological, allergies and metabolic disease.
Acupuncture is the process of inserting needles into body tissues. The insertion points are where blood vessels come together with nerve bundles. These nervous and vascular tissues are what we refer to as “acupuncture points.” Acupuncture’s purpose is to help the body heal itself. Enhancing blood circulation, releasing pain relieving and anti-inflammatory hormones and stimulating the nervous system are all common benefits of acupuncture.
Our acupuncture machine also allows for Electrostimulation (Estim). “Features 4 independently controlled output channels which provide stimulation to 8 needles.” Estim helps relax muscles that are spasming and can be helpful in re-establishing nervous impulses where nerve damage has occurred.
