Animal Acupuncture

In the spring of 2004, Nara traveled to Laurel, MD to attend a 187-hour course on animal acupuncture designed specifically for human acupuncturists and experienced first-hand the benefits of Chinese medicine for companion animals. Using Chinese medicine for animals has proven to have the same benefits as it does for people and can address the underlying causes of illness and effectively prevent further disease.

Animals respond very well and tend to relax and enjoy themselves during the treatment. Their energy can shift quite quickly requiring shorter treatment times. Generally, treatments are complete within 30 minutes; however, the first session can take up to an hour as information is gathered.

Animal treatments do not require the insertion of needles. Energy imbalances are corrected by using smooth metal tools at the acupuncture points at the skin’s surface.
