Medical Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment method that involves the insertion of sterile needles. Modern medical practitioners developed medical acupuncture as an adaptation to Chinese acupuncture. Dr. Tasha Wilson was fascinated with learning the why behind how it all worked. She studied the science behind how the body reacts to these tiny needles — releasing natural chemicals to stimulate changes in nerves and decrease pain while increasing blood flow and nutrients to cells and organs in the body. Dr. Wilson employs current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, all in keeping with evidence-based medicine.
Dr. Wilson is a doctor of veterinary medicine who received her medical acupuncture certification from CuraCore and provides medical acupuncture services for both cats and dogs.
As an integrative wellness veterinarian, she believes in integrating contemporary treatment and adjunctive therapies like veterinary acupuncture. She will work closely with your primary care veterinarian so your pet receives the best possible care.
