Intro Seminar Overview
Clinical Application to TCVM and Integrative Medicine is a 7 to 14-hour introductory seminar which covers the Fundamental Principles of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and the two major branches of TCVM: Veterinary Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. These seminars take place throughout the year in multiple locations. Seminars are available by species track either Small Animal or Equine. Participants have the option of attending both tracks or a single track based on their needs. In addition, Veterinary Medical Spinal Manipulation (VMM) techniques are also covered in the equine portion and in selected small animal portions depending on the instructor.
These seminars are not only valuable for veterinarians new to integrative veterinary medicine modalities but can be a refresher course for those who may have studied it years ago. With these seminars participants will be able to:
- Learn clinical tips and applications for veterinary acupuncture.
- Evaluate the fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) including Yin-Yang and Five Elements.
- Understand how to use Veterinary Acupuncture for pain management in both dogs and horses.
