TCVM Tongue Assessment and TCVM Pulse Palpation – March 17, 2019
March 17, 2019
How much do you know about TCVM, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine? Do you know how to apply aspects of TCVM in your dog massage?
Acupressure points and meridians are not all there is to know in the complex practice of TCVM. Two of the Four Pillars of TCVM Diagnosis are Tongue Assessment and Pulse Palpation.
Would you like to look at your dog’s tongue and use what you see in your assessment and application of massage. You can when you know what to look for!
Would you like to be able to get a real time validation of how the dog is processing your massage? You can get the feedback you need by reading the textures of pulses! http://www.itmonline.org/arts/pulse.htm
Chinese medicine uses the tongue to interpret health
The tongue is one of the most important diagnostic areas in ancient medical traditions. What makes the tongue such a great diagnostic tool? Your tongue, containing water, electrolytes, mucus, and enzymes, is a very sensitive organ and its appearance changes with many physical changes in the body. In Chinese medicine, the tongue is a “map” of the internal body. Like the face, the tongue is divided into five-element zones that correspond to your internal organ networks.
Workshop instructor: Eva Groesbeck, DVM. I recently attended one of her lectures and I am very impressed with her knowledge and skills in TCM. Eva has taken one PetMassage (the WaterWork, Canine Aquatic Massage) workshop. Her approach and our philosophy are highly simpatico. The skills Eva will teach will perfectly complement the Advanced Level curriculum and enhance your palpation skills whatever your level of expertise. You’ll apply them in every canine massage!
We are thrilled to offer this one-day class focusing on these two techniques.
This workshop is open to DVMs, RVTs, and graduates of all schools’ canine massage programs.
The fee for this class is just $200 (10% less with IAAMB/ACWT membership).
