Needling – this is the basic technique in which solid metal needle is inserted in the body for about 30 minutes. Needle also twirls time to time so that it can give more effective result.
Electro acupuncture – after the needles are inserted into the body then after that it gets connected with an electrical simulator in order to provide electrical impulses to the body. This technique lasts for about twenty to thirty minutes.
Laser simulation – it has been seen that there are many horses who don’t take the insertion of needle in the body very well. That’s why this technique is best for them because it is painless. In this laser light is passed from the acupuncture point of the body and as strong the laser more effective treatment will be.
