- Background of equine acupuncture
- Anatomic features of acupuncture points
- Acupuncture’s physiologic mechanisms.
Acupuncture and equine acupuncture both carry historical baggage that has put off many in the medical community since its modern introduction in the 1970s. In brief, western proponents of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory have mistakenly construed acupuncture as an “energy medicine” that operates outside a scientific understanding of anatomy and physiology. Modern medical interest has developed from scientific research that shows it operates very much within our growing understanding of anatomic and physiologic responses.
In this webinar a brief description of acupuncture’s difficult history will be followed by a description of some of the more important aspects of acupuncture related anatomy and the physiologic responses to acupuncture.
