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
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.
