Is acupuncture beneficial if my animal is healthy?

Because acupuncture treats the whole animal and helps it to correct any imbalances, it is often used to prevent disease.

Competition horses, like any other athletes, are subject to physical stressors and strains, and acupuncture can help to treat any imbalances caused before there are obvious physical signs. Mental stress caused by competing and travelling can also be addressed. Many competition horses are treated regularly with acupuncture to enhance their performance. Being drug-free treatment, acupuncture has an advantage over some other forms of treatment.
