At AHSH, we believe in providing only the best care to your furry family members. Can your pet benefit from Acupuncture that has been in practice for thousands of years? Absolutely. What’s even better is that Dr. Emily Falk is not only an expert in Traditional Western Veterinary Medicine but is now certified in Eastern Traditional Chinese Medicine. Your pet gets the best of both worlds, an integrative approach to his or her care whether it be preventive or treatment for a specific condition.


What is Acupuncture?

The goal of acupuncture therapy is to produce a healing response within the body by placing small needles at very specific points on your pet’s body. According to the Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), acupuncture treatments work with your pet’s body to correct internal imbalances to achieve healing. What does this mean from a scientific standpoint? By placing acupuncture needles, your pet’s blood circulation will increase and nervous system will be stimulated to release anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving substances. An overall homeostatic effect is achieved to promote healing from within. 


Can your pet benefit from Acupuncture?

YES!  Whether you’re looking for preventative wellness treatments, acute or chronic therapy, all pets can benefit from acupuncture.
