Acupuncture clinics are offered by appointment Thursdays at Wanchai Centre and Tuesdays at Kowloon Centre.

Acupuncture can help alleviate conditions such as musculoskeletal, nervous, urinary tract, skin, respiratory and geriatric diseases. Through the insertion of fine needles into specific acupuncture points, acupuncture helps to restore the internal balance of the body. Acupuncture is generally not painful and is well-tolerated by most animals. The needles usually stay in place for 15-20 minutes and most animals under treatment become relaxed and even sleepy. Acupuncture can be effectively combined with conventional western medicine and rehabilitation therapies, including surgery, physiotherapy and hydrotherapy or underwater treadmill.
