The program begins with an overview of fundamental aspects of Chinese Medicine, including Yin-Yang and Five Elements theory, which serve as a foundation for case diagnoses and treatment presented later in the class. A variety of acupuncture techniques are taught, including electro-acupuncture and moxibustion, in addition to conventional "dry" needling. Students will learn acupuncture points on small animals only, and primarily dogs are used for practice in the wet labs.
The Small Animal Acupuncture CE course in Moscow, Russia is equivalent to the Small Animal Veterinary Acupuncture CE course conducted in the USA. It is an ideal option for students living in or near eastern Europe to be become certified in acupuncture. This CE course is comprised of online lectures which student can stream at their own convenience. The on-site portion in Moscow will consist of lectures and hands-on wet labs. The online and on-site lectures, presentation slides, class handouts, tutoring and final exam are presented in English or with English subtitles.
