Chronic disease conditions are now the common target of veterinary therapy but are there better ways to manage diseases that will not be resolved with conventional therapy. We often turn to acupuncture and herbal therapy, but for many of our patients MOXIBUSTION is an effective and preferable therapeutic option - even in the hands of the non-acupuncturist!

Moxibustion – where there is smoke there is fire: bridging science and tradition with new insights on mugwort as a powerful veterinary medicine.

Moxibustion is a stand alone therapy which can be used along-side acupuncture or instead of acupuncture. It has a long and interesting history and an incredible emerging evidence base of scientific studies supporting its profound effects. If you want to know how to treat cases that don’t respond to acupuncture or other therapies, or animals with stress related diseases, arthritis, IBD, cancer and many other disorders, then this webinar will provide the essential background, techniques and leading edge research to give you confidence to practice it effectively. You don’t have to be an acupuncturist to benefit from this webinar, but a knowledge of point location is beneficial. If you are a herbalist you will be fascinated to learn the benefits of this traditional herbal therapy.
