Dr. Lori Johnstone specializes in veterinary acupuncture for horses and small animals and equine spinal manipulation.
Veterinary Acupuncture treatments offer relief and healing for all of your equine and small animals needs’.
The success of animal acupuncture will vary according to the condition being treated and the number and frequency of veterinary acupuncture treatments. The length and frequency of the treatments depend on the condition of the patient and the method of stimulation that is used. A simple acute problem, such as a sprain, may require only one treatment, whereas more severe or chronic ailments may need several treatments.
Why Veterinary Acupuncture?
For thousands of years, acupuncture has been used on both humans and animals in China. Despite the many different techniques you can use (such as dry needling, moxibustion, and electro-stimulation), the cohesive goal with acupuncture is to reinstate the flow of Qi (pronounced chee), our essential energy.
Veterinary acupuncture methods are safe medical procedures and Dr. Johnstone’s level of expertise will ensure you a painless treatment for your animal.
If you are unsure on whether your animal will benefit from acupuncture you may refer to this list of effects veterinary acupuncture has on those treated:
– Pain relief
