ABVA Foundation Course in Veterinary Acupuncture - Spring 2019

Location: The Horse Trust
Home of Rest for Horses
Slad Lane
Princes Risborough

Price: £1200 (or £1000 if booked and paid for by 28/01/2019)

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.
