Description

Acupuncture is increasingly becoming accepted as a valid modality in human and veterinary medicine. The ancient Chinese medical thinking of health as a balance of Yin & Yang easily translates to a recognition of autonomic and other homeostatic physiology. They also demonstrated an understanding of viscerosomatic and somatovisceral reflexes. Some of the western world attempts to translate early works of Chinese Medicine have created the wrong impression of their accomplishments and put acupuncture treatment theories at odds with modern medicine by creating the flawed narrative of "energy circulation in meridians". In the meantime scientific research of acupuncture physiology has brought it a credibilty to inspire further and more widespread interest.

Objectives

The use of acupuncture in practice
A brief overview of some historical aspects of acupuncture followed with some of the research findings that is fostering further research and employment as a part of integrative medicine. An example of a dog treated with acupuncture for IBD illustrates the anatomic aspects & physiologic responses to acupuncture.

Dietrich Graf von Schweinitz BSc DVM MRCVS Certified Vet Acupuncturist (IVAS): I qualified at the Univ. of Georgia in 1982, practiced in Maryland until 1986, moved to the UK and founded an equine practice in Guildford in 1989. My acupuncture interest began in the USA and I became certified in vet acupuncture through the International Vet. Acupuncture Society (IVAS) in 1998. I was a past President of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists and continue as its Education Director; I also served on the IVAS Ed. Committee and Board of Directors. Presently I have a referral acupuncture practice along with teaching commitments. I conducted and published pioneering research in the thermographic monitoring of autonomic responses to acupuncture in horses with chronic pain syndromes and in needle electromyographic recordings of myofascial trigger points in horses (Acupunc in Med, & Vet Clinics of NA, Equine Practice). More recently I authored the papers “Electro-acupuncture for nerve injury in the horse” in Equine Vet Educ. 2014, and “Acupuncture for pain control” in Robinson & Sprayberry’s Current Therapy in Equine Medicine, 7th ed., 2015.
