COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to confirm when the next Foundation Course will run.  The course involves face-to-face tuition in a large group and therefore cannot run under current circumstances. We await updates from the Government as to when events such as these may take place.  We have secured the services of our lecturers for the dates below and hope that we may go ahead and comfirm these, but we regret that we are currently unable to take bookings. A link will be available shortly to register interest in this course should it go ahead.

 

 

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.
