Acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate certain points of the body, which then affect other areas. It can be used to treat multiple issues but in animal health we use it to relieve pain, by relieving the tightened, strained or stressed muscles. Depending the trigger points used it can cause the body to release endorphins (the bodies natural pain-killers). Treatments take a couple of minutes up to 20minutes depending on the areas targeted and the aim of the specific needle
