Although acupuncture originally started in traditional Chinese medicine as a way to optimize energy flow, or Chi, throughout the body, medical research has demonstrated that it has direct effects on the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Bayhill Equine is proud to to offer accupuncture as an alternative therapy for horses.

Horse receiving acupuncture

What can acupuncture help with?

By directly stimulating nerves and related tissues, acupuncture can help to increase blood flow and directly modulate nerve function to help reduce pain, treat muscles spasms, and aid in internal organ function. Although not a replacement for traditional veterinary medicine, acupuncture can serve as a complementary practice to help identify and treat a multitude of problems in addition to maintenance of performance horses.
