Acupuncture Foundation course for Veterinary surgeons – 4-5 Feb & 10-11 Mar 2016
A Four day Foundation course in veterinary acupuncture. 10-11 March 2016
The ABVA Foundation Course is primarily a practical one for veterinary surgeons who are new to acupuncture or those who wish to refresh their knowledge. The information we give you stands firmly on a Western clinical diagnosis and an understanding of acupuncture’s neurophysiological mechanisms; but to broaden your experience we would like to introduce you to some of the historical and traditional concepts from which this ancient form of medicine evolved. This is just the beginning of this fascinating subject.
The Foundation Course gives a tuition in the science of acupuncture over three fascinating days, followed
by basic traditional concepts of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture on the fourth day. Experience in
point finding and needling in various species will be gained from practical labs and animal acupuncture
demonstrations provided on each of the course days. Safety issues in humans and animals are fully
explained and those delegates who wish to be needled or needle others are invited to do so. Full notes are provided and a detailed lecture and practical itinerary is available on request. It takes four days to give you the information you need to start identifying appropriate cases and to practice introductory acupuncture safely and effectively.
