For about 4,000 years, Chinese tradition has been using acupuncture to remedy various ailments, considered as an imbalance of â€œQuiâ€. Acupuncture involves the use of therapeutic needles to target specific points in your body to activate the â€œQuiâ€ or the energy that keeps everything in harmony all throughout your body. There are various spas and Chinese therapeutic centers that offer this service and it is a very good alternative for medical solutions. These days, acupuncture is not only exclusive to humans anymore. Believe it or not, acupuncture can be performed on pets, too, especially your dog.
