WHY SHOULD AN ACUPUNCTURIST STUDY ANIMAL ACUPUNCTURE?
- You love working with Animals: People can be fun patients, and animals can be even more fun!
- Learn from the Experts that brought Animal/Veterinary Acupuncture to the United States: Over 45 years ago, a group of acupuncturists sought for the right to needle animals professionally, partnering with supportive veterinarians willing to learn and work alongside with each other, cross-training and supporting animals across the nation. These same acupuncturists, along with other veterinarians and acupuncturists, are bringing their training to you to keep this good work going.
- Unique Training: This course has been specially developed to train you in small animal and equine Acupuncture and Asian medical healthcare, including academics and live clinical training.
- Flexible Training: Classes are offered over a period of 5 months, with one weekend per month live in-person class and clinicals, with didactic studies and mentoring throughout the month.
- Add Value to Your Practice: Adding training in Animal Acupuncture adds value to your practice. It can also be used as a stand-alone practice.
- Need for Advanced Expertise in Acupuncture and Asian Medicine in the field of animal medicine. These acupuncturists brought animal acupuncture to the veterinarians in the 1970’s. Although veterinarians take some training in Acupuncture, they lack the full expertise that studying the full Asian, Classical, Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide. More support is needed to address complex internal medicine conditions in animals, from the Asian medical perspective. You can offer that to veterinarians who recognize your expertise and who want to grow integrative practices.
- Growing Demand: With training in Animal Acupuncture, you will be meeting the growing demand for Asian medicine based options in animal healthcare.
- Support for state-specific practice: While states may vary in their regulation of Acupuncturists working on animals, Maryland led the nation in establishing standards for Acupuncturists in the field of veterinary medicine. By building expertise in this area, we can support a future where we can integrate into this field. We will provide any support we can to you in your state towards this goal.
- Eligible to sit for ABAA certification exam: Students with passing scores can sit for the American Board of Animal Acupuncture (ABAA).
