Acupuncture and Laser Therapy

Acupuncture is a medical treatment that targets the central nervous system to help treat disease

When you bring your pet to us for acupuncture in San Antonio, very fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body to increase circulation and stimulate the brain to produce pain-relieving substances and promote tissue healing. Scientific research shows improvement in arthritis pain relief, digestive issues, nerve disease, skin disease, and many other chronic conditions. Patients often sleep better, feel more relaxed, and have improved digestion after acupuncture.

Acupuncture and Laser Therapy

A safe treatment that works with the body’s natural healing mechanisms

Acupuncture is a safe treatment that works with the body’s natural healing mechanisms to improve the quality of your pet’s life and can be used in combination with many other treatments and medications like antibiotics, steroids, NSAIDS. Three treatments are initially recommended 1 week apart to evaluate your pet’s response, then treatments can be as needed, depending on condition. Food, treats, and gentle Fear Free handling are used during our acupuncture treatments in San Antonio, but most pets tolerate needle placement very well.

Therapeutic laser therapy uses specific light waves to stimulate the tissues. Depending on the wavelength used, it can be used to affect the skin, muscles, or bone. Often laser therapy is used in conjunction with acupuncture, or is utilized in place of acupuncture if the patient is too sensitive to tolerate acupuncture in certain spots. Laser therapy treatment improves overall mobility and can also be used to speed wound healing. Recommendations for treatment are dependent on the condition being treated, and treatment packages are available. Please contact our office if you are interested in either acupuncture or laser therapy in San Antonio today!
