This course provides 3 days of equine acupuncture lectures with labs and demonstrations and is designed to offer equine veterinarians an introduction to equine acupuncture, and as a refresher to those who have previously attended a Foundation Course or similar introduction course.

It takes three days to give you the information you need to start identifying appropriate cases and to practice introductory acupuncture safely and effectively.
