How does acupuncture help pets?

Acupuncture results in complex actions involving the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. This can cause positive effects locally, such as relieving a painful joint and systemically by triggering the release of analgesic chemicals from the brain such as endorphins and serotonin. Overall, acupuncture can help to relieve pain, improve circulation, and promote healing.
