Even Sea Turtles Are Getting Acupuncture!
Acupuncture for animals continues to gain popularity. This weekend CBS reported (see the video here) a story about three sea turtles who are suffering from joint infections. Their joints have limited range of motion which causes them to have difficulty swimming, important for a sea turtle! They are being treated by acupuncturist Claire McManus and the aquarium’s head vet, Dr. Charles Innis, says it seems to be helping. I’m glad to hear it!
