Ah, the bliss that comes from acupuncture. Though it makes you look like you’re being pricked by needles, it’s a delicate, age-old Eastern medicine practice with tons of benefits that range from beating stress to relaxing your muscles and aiding with digestive woes. Those who have gotten the treatment know that Zenned-out feeling you get afterwards.

Dogs can get it too—at least, according to Julianne Hough, who swears by the wellness treatment for her two Cavalier King Charles pups. In a recent Instagram story, the actress-dancer-singer showed her very chill-looking dogs on the couch with acupuncture needles in place.

“Acupuncture keeps my babies healthy!” Hough writes. “So many amazing benefits!” Acupuncture…for your pets? You may be wondering—but it really does have perks for your fur babies.

One study shows the treatment has efficacy in treating a wide variety of diseases, and pros actually get requests for it, too. “Acupuncture has a very long history of treating animals much for the same reasons humans,” says Joseph Alban, L.Ac, a New York City-based acupuncturist. “A lot of people use it on their dogs.” So, there you have it: Woman’s best friend likes the spa, too.

If you want more pet love, these are the healthy it-dogs of Instagram. And here’s how to work out with your dog (as a weight!).
