Animal Acupuncture

Animal acupuncture is a holistic therapy that we provide from our Winkleigh practice. It can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine and in some cases, it may provide benefit as a stand-alone treatment.

Marcella is fully qualified to perform acupuncture of a range of animals, large and small. This type of treatment has been in existence for thousands of years and it works by stimulating various mechanisms in the body such as the nervous, immune and cellar systems which can help the body become balanced and encourage self-healing.
