Vermont Business Magazine With the addition of Dr. Coombs to our team, Affectionately Cats in Williston is now proud to offer acupuncture to our feline friends. Acupuncture for cats has several benefits. It is used for the treatment of chronic and acute pain syndromes as well as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, spinal injuries, disc disease and more. It directly releases muscle tension and stimulates endorphin release throughout the process, providing relaxation to the patient while increasing blood flow and tissue regeneration in damaged areas.
Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic method that generally involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles. Modern medical practitioners have developed medical acupuncture as an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture. Instead of relying on inaccurate metaphors to describe the body’s responses to treatment, we use current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, consistent with evidence-based medicine. A physical examination allows the doctor to determine the location and sources of discomfort and dysfunction.
Acupuncture works by stimulating nerve fibers near the point of insertion. This stimulus helps balance nerve signaling and neurotransmitters from outside the body to the central nervous system in the brain. It also releases tension from muscles and its fibrous network called fascia.
We would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about the process and if it may be right for your cat. Call us today at (802) 860-2287 to schedule an appointment or visit our website at affectionatelycats.com.
