About the course

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.

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.
