Dr. Marsh is educated in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and incorporates this knowledge within her practice. Acupuncture is a method that involves inserting needles into your horse to promote healing. This method works well on a variety of maladies, as each acupuncture point is associated with different parts of your horse’s anatomy. Based on what your horse needs, acupuncture can be directed toward specific issues. Aquapuncture is also used on horses, which is a version of acupuncture that infuses a water mixture into the acupuncture points to maximize the effects. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years and works well in conjunction with western medicine. Dr. Marsh uses this technique to aide in healing, and also uses Chinese herbal medicine for cases that suggest that herbs may assist your horse.
