Vermont Business Magazine With the addition of Dr. Coombs to our team, Affectionately Cats in Williston is now proud to offer acupuncture for our feline friends. There are several benefits to acupuncture for cats. It is used for the treatment of chronic and acute painful syndromes as well as osteoarthritis, tendinitis, spinal injury, disk disease and more. It directly releases muscle tension and stimulates endorphin release throughout the process providing relaxation to patient while increasing blood flow and regeneration of tissue in damaged areas.

Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic method that usually involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles. Modern medical practitioners developed medical acupuncture as an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture. Instead of relying on inexact metaphors to describe the body’s responses to treatment, we employ current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, keeping 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 insertion point. This stimulus helps to balance nerve signaling and neurotransmitters from outside of the body to the central nervous system in the brain. It also releases tension from the 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 setup an appointment or visit our website at
