Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture has proven to be an effective holistic therapy in treating patients in need of pain-relief and disease treatment. If you are interested in our acupuncture services, give us a call at (631) 324-0282.
Extremely thin needles, or acupoints, are strategically inserted into the skin to stimulate connective tissue, nerves and muscles. When a pet's body is not naturally regulating itself, disease and pain often result. Acupoints help the body regain natural energy flow, providing relief from disease-related symptoms such as pain, nausea, inflammation and anxiety by effectively allowing the body and organs to work as a whole.
Acupuncture is pain-free and relaxes pets so much that they often fall asleep during treatment! At East Hampton Veterinary Group, we create individualized treatment plans for acupuncture patients based off of a physical exam, health status, personality and desired health goals. This personalized treatment plan allows us to treat your pet as a whole, instead of focusing on individual symptoms. While acupuncture is helpful for many patients, we typically recommend using it along with traditional therapies.
