CIVT1001INAC Introduction to Veterinary Acupuncture

Introduction to Acupuncture

Learning about mystical concepts like Qi, Yin and Yang may be necessary to master acupuncture, but as a veterinarian you can get started with what you already know. Whether treating chronic pain or internal medical disorders, acupuncture gets patients better in ways you already understand- influencing autonomic activity, relieving pain and changing blood flow patterns. The story of acupuncture embodies the wisdom of the orient, but techniques and mechanisms of acupuncture are something veterinarians can learn quickly and easily.

This course is designed for the beginner, or someone who trained a long time ago and needs a refresher. We will show you techniques and some of the most powerful acupuncture points to get you started. We aim to inspire you to go on and obtain in-depth acupuncture training once you see the results for yourself. To support you in taking your training further, we will provide a $300 discount on the fee for 10015NAT Graduate Diploma of Veterinary Acupuncture - an accredited qualification through the Australian Qualifications Framework, if you apply for the 2-year, part-time program within 18 months of completing your introductory course.

This course is for veterinarians and assumes a veterinary background.
