Sea Turtles Get Acupuncture Treatment In Quincy

Claire McManus is a licensed acupuncturist for people, and sometimes animals. On Monday, Claire treated Dexter and Fletcher Moon, a couple sea turtles suffering from joint infections.

Dr. Charles Innis, the aquarium’s head vet, says it seems to be helping.

“I don’t know how it works or why it works, but as long as they get released again, I don’t really care whether it was my treatment or the acupuncture treatment that made them get better,” said Dr. Innis.
