Dr. Holland is a certified veterinary acupuncturist (CVA), having received her training through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS).
Acupuncture is an ancient technique where very fine needles are placed in specific points in the body to help decrease pain, heal injuries, stimulate the immune system and decrease anxiety. This technique has been shown to increase blood and lymphatic flow to tissues, stimulate nerve function and increase the release of natural pain relieving chemicals.
Dr. Holland and the staff at Adel Vet Clinic have been extremely impressed with the amazing effects of acupuncture. We have seen a major decreases in pain, increased mobility, invigorated health and improved energy.
Acupucture can treat many conditions including musculoskeletal conditions (arthirits, spinal disk disease, trauma, muscle atrophy), immune system disorders (chronic allergic diseases, immune diseases), neurologic problems (nerve injury, paralysis) and systemic diseases such as chronic kidney disease, liver disease, urinary incontinence and bladder problems.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Some of our greatest success stories are feline patients that are getting pain relief after just one treatment; and enjoying it! Many are even sleeping through the treatments!
Dr. Holland is happy to work with referring veterinarians to coordinate the best patient care, integrating both conventional and alternative modalities.
