Where is acupuncture from?

Acupuncture is the ancient art of placing fine needles into specific parts of the body. It has been used by Chinese and other Eastern Cultures for many thousands of years as a component of their health care system. Since acupuncture is a complementary therapy it can safely be combined with conventional veterinary treatment.
