I was fortunate enough to visit the wonderful New England Aquarium. It was an amazing discovery for me. I am surprised to see that they can help these wonderful sea turtles with acupuncture.
Thank you Barb!

There is no reason why holistic treatments would not work on plants and animals. If it work on human animal it should work on other species. It is just a question of adapting treatment to different physiologies.
I am always amazed that people still consider homo-sapiens as being a different (and stupidly superior) being. The sooner every one will realise that there is NO difference at all from a life to another, the better for the planet.

I m so happy to watch and know that acupuncture can help turtles too, so we try to use and help our friends more like dogs, cat, etc. Thank you very much Barb for sharing.

Turtles are people too. We have feelings.
We get hurt and disappointed. We withdraw.

God bless the people who care.

And God renew those who don't.

thx for sharing this amazing news to me! The video did NOT expire !:) Yes, we are all connected but sadly that is what also continuously inspires the lab experiments on innocent animals to go on and on...

It's amazing they can know where to put it since the animal can't exactly say if it hurts or not. Good for them for finding a better way to help these turtles!
