What is


Animal acupuncture is a time-honored form of alternative medicine that has been used to promote the health and well-being of animals for thousands of years. Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. This therapeutic technique can be used to address a wide range of conditions in animals, providing a safe, gentle, and effective approach to enhancing their health and vitality.


At Transitions Acupuncture, we are proud to offer specialized animal pet acupuncture services to support the well-being of your beloved pets.
