Almost everyone has heard of acupuncture. Many people have actually had or have ongoing sessions with acupuncture. But how much do you really know about this ancient healing art and its use in pets? Acupuncture is described as the stimulation of a specific point on the body with a specific method, to elicit a specific response to help put the body into balance. Balance is a process of where all the bodily functions are working in harmony and there is no, or less disease (dis-ease). This balance has been represented for thousands of years by the Yin/Yang symbol.
