The Incredible Benefits of Acupuncture for Benicia Pets

Have you ever considered acupuncture for your pet? 

If you have, you're in good company. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that has been used to treat humans for thousands of years. It's also been used to treat animals, and more and more people are turning to acupuncture as an alternative treatment option.

It works by stimulating specific points on the body with fine needles to release natural chemicals that promote healing and pain relief.


The Benefits of Acupuncture Include:


Improved Mobility

Acupuncture can help our pets improve their mobility, especially if they are suffering from joint or muscle pain. Acupuncture can also be used to treat other issues that may contribute to poor mobility, such as arthritis or nerve damage.

Weight Loss

Overweight pets might look cute and fluffy , but they can suffer from many health problems, including diabetes and other conditions that are linked to obesity. Acupuncture has been shown to help with weight loss in both humans and animals. It can help your pet lose weight by stimulating the conversion of fat cells into lean muscle cells, boosting their metabolism, and encouraging good dietary adjustments.


Acupuncture can help treat allergies in pets by regulating the immune system, improving circulation and reducing the discomfort of excessive scratching, biting, and licking. Your pet may respond favorably to acupuncture if they suffer from skin allergies such as allergic dermatitis, granulomas, rashes, or hot spots.

Reduced Anxiety

Pets can be just as stressed out as their owners, and they don't always know how to deal with it. Acupuncture can help pets reduce their stress by lowering Cortisol levels. This is ideal for pets who are nervous or aggressive, especially cats and dogs.
