Although there are many romantic ideas about where acupuncture comes from and how it works, the truth is rooted in science and anatomy. Acupuncture is the practice of applying tiny needles or pressure to specific areas to stimulate nerves and tissue to get the desired effect.

Dr. Narda Robinson is both a human doctor and a veterinarian, and she literally wrote the book on acupuncture points and what they do in the human body. In this episode, she explains how and why acupuncture works, as well as the specific ways that it can benefit dogs with cancer.
