Jin Rishan, a specialist at the Shanghai TCM Neurology and Acupuncture Animal Health Center, said they have treated more than 2,000 cats and dogs since the clinic opened four years ago.

A single session costs 260 yuan ($39) and last for about 45 minutes.

Jin said about 80 percent of their patients have shown some improvement after treatment.

"Making a paralysed and dependent dog stand up is our ultimate goal," Jin said.
