According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, living organisms contain a road map of energy conduits, called meridians or channels. These carry life-giving energy to and from every body system. Any interference or interruption in that energy flow can disrupt normal function, leading to disfunction or disease.
Acupuncture in the treatment of disease involves the stimulation of specific points along affected channels to reopen "blocked" energy flow and reestablish normal functioning. Diagnostic acupuncture uses these same meridians to detect an energy blockage.
CORE Therapies uses acupuncture to help diagnose, adjust, and relieve pain within the horse's body to create better performance and well being. It's used in conjunction with chiropractic services.
