The idea of ancient Chinese medicine is that illness is caused by an imbalance of vital energy in the body. Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) includes acupuncture, which focuses on restoring the body’s energy balance and aiding recovery. Acupuncture, in other terms, is used to assist the body in healing itself by correcting energy imbalances.
