Animal Acupuncture in Glasgow, MT

Acupuncture is used alone, or in conjunction with traditional western medicine, to treat a wide variety of conditions in every species of animal.

Animal Acupuncture

How It Works:

Each acupuncture point has specific actions within the neurologic system when stimulated. Combinations of points are often stimulated together to take advantage of synergistic reactions between them. Which acupuncture points are activated, the depth of needle insertion, the type of stimulation applied to the needles, and the duration of each treatment session depends on what medical condition is being treated and the patients tolerance.
