Acupuncture is an alternative treatment modality which is non invasive and can produce remarkable results.
Dr Craig Bird is accredited by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society as a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist.
When using acupuncture to treat a problem we are assisting the body to return to a balanced state. The aim of acupuncture is to stimulate the body to repair itself.
There are many conditions where I feel Western Medicine is the best treatment option. However there are also many conditions where Chinese Medicine or Western Medicine are equally effective. In fact many of the odd and strange conditions that will not respond to conventional medicine can be treated successfully with Acupuncture.
The most familiar form of acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points of the body. These points can also be stimulated with laser treatment or electrostimulation.
What Can Be Treated?
