Dr. Braun uses Acupuncture, PEMF, and Laser Therapy as modalities that enhance healing by increasing blood circulation, amplifying endorphin release, and reducing cortisol levels.

How does Acupuncture work? 

The main therapeutic effects of acupuncture begin with activation of nerve fibers near a point. The stimulation of the nerve fibers brings about changes that help to balance nerve signaling and neurotransmitter activity from the acupuncture point to the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and autonomic nervous system (which governs processes like glandular activity, immune status, digestion, mood, and more). Acupuncture also releases tension from muscles and fascia (the enveloping fibrous network surrounding muscles).

Pulse Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy 

PEMF is another modality that lowers inflammation, pain, and swelling. It is non-invasive, and non-pharmaceutical. Please see https://assisianimalhealth.com/technology/ for more information.
