Whether you are interested in taking the first steps towards veterinary acupuncture or you are an established acupuncturist looking to further their skills, the ABVA has something for you.

Taking place at venues around the UK, our courses are taught by lecturers with a wealth of experience and a real passion for their subject. Teaching is friendly, informal and contains a practical content far higher than your average CPD. They are great value too!

Browse our upcoming courses below - if you have any questions or would like to make an enquiry about our teaching or any other aspect of veterinary acupuncture, please get in touch using our contact form.

Please note that you must be a qualified veterinary surgeon and a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to attend an ABVA course.

Delegates MUST have attended a previous Fascia and the Veterinary Patient or Sporting Dog Course.

The second in the series of Fascia courses is purely practical, focussing on pattern recognition, fascial acupuncture and fascial release. The aim of the day is to build on the theory from the first course (Fascia and the Veterinary Patient) and to give delegates an opportunity to improve their palpation skills as well as familiarising themselves with fascial release techniques carried out on each other.

Location: Woodspring Golf and Country Club
Bristol BS13 8AG

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.
