Acupuncture

The therapeutic effects of equine acupuncture date back to 2000-3000 BC in China. These traditional Chinese techniques involve inserting thin needles, at various depths, to stimulate specific points throughout the patient’s body. These acupuncture points are areas of increased electrical sensitivity. Acupuncture can increase circulation, assist in the relief of muscle spasms, improve immunity, and provide numerous other benefits. Traditional Chinese Medicine also involves the use of numerous herbal formulations, many of which can be used in conjunction with Western medicines.

Chiropractic

A chiropractic adjustment is a non-invasive treatment that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body and their connection to the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments are used to restore correct biomechanical motions and nerve functions, and can also be used as an integrative service along with acupuncture to enhance the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain wellness.

Drs. Jan Henriksen, Jill Copenhagen, and Courtney Wittich are certified in equine chiropractic care and offer chiropractic evaluations and adjustments to enhance the health, comfort, and performance of your equine companion.
