TCM Equine Laser Acupuncture
Acupuncture works to help maintain the body’s equilibrium. It involves the stimulation of
specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’, your body’s vital energy.
For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or
blocked, which can result in symptoms of pain, illness or disease. In certain circumstances,
acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and
emotional harmony.

Acupuncture is an ancient form of holistic healing that takes many years to learn & is based on
a complex system of meridians, movement of Qi (energy), the ability to read signs & symptoms
and detect delicate changes in pulse qualities, to diagnose & formulate a treatment.

Currently, UK laws only permit qualified vets to insert needles into an animal for any reason.
This may mean that very few animals have the benefit of 'true acupuncture'. However, using
the power of cold laser, acupuncture points can be stimulated in a very similar way to needles
enabling a fully trained professional acupuncturist to treat both humans & animals. Because
the technique is totally non-invasive it is also pain free. This enables nervous or sensitive
animals to be treated safely without the worry or danger of misplaced needles.

Results from treatment can be almost instantaneous in some cases, in others the effects are
accumulatory, however research over many years has shown that acupuncture can help with a
plethora of problems that western medicine is unable to fully treat or resolve, such as;

  •    Improve physical health by strengthening muscles and tendons, supporting digestive
    health, increasing endurance, building the immune response
  •    Help the older horse, ease the stress of weaning and moving horses, training and
  •    Balance the emotions - you can use Laser acupuncture to soothe the nervous horse,
    calm the angry horse and prepare the competition horse.
  •    Relieve soreness in the horse's neck, shoulders, front legs, back, hindquarters, stifles
    and hocks
  •    Maintain the health of the horse’s heart, lungs, digestive system, urinary tract, bones,
    eyes and skin.
  • Support for your horse during emergency and illness situations such as colic, choke,
    injury, respiratory illness, fever, skin and eye issues along side veterinary treatment.
