Comfort and Health

A complete physical assessment, diagnostics, diagnosis, and appropriate adjunctive treatment should always accompany veterinary integrative modalities such as medical acupuncture, 

photomedicine, and medical massage.

Veterinary medical acupuncture treats and helps heal the body naturally through neuromodulation––the stimulation and normalization of the nervous system, which in turn benefits nerves, muscles, bones, organs, and the immune system. Neuromodulation through acupuncture helps animals feel better through reduced pain, improved function of the body, decreased inflammation, and improved healing.

Veterinary photomedicine helps heal and manage pain naturally through photobiomodulation of the body's cellular mechanisms by using low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and LED light.

Veterinary medical massage helps heal and manage pain naturally through tissue manipulation to affect fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, the lymphatic system, and blood flow.

Acupuncture is performed using very thin, sterile, stainless steel needles, photomedicine uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and LED light, and veterinary medical massage uses gentle, soothing touch.

Acupuncture, photomedicine, medical massage––individually and collectively––help balance the systems of the body for health and comfort.

Safety is one of the most beneficial aspects of these natural and complementary modalities, and adverse effects are rare when these therapies are performed by a competent, caring, professionally trained veterinarian.

Comfort and Relief through a low stress experience is a primary focus throughout each visit. Animals demonstrate little to no discomfort with placement of needles. And within minutes of placing the first needle, many animals become relaxed and even fall asleep. No discomfort is experienced with LLLT or massage. 


We often see results as we finish the first treatment. 

Healing and relief increase over several days

and build with the cumulative effects of each treatment.
