Why Luo Mai?

Course Overview

Why Luo Mai? Luo Mai are a useful approach to clearing pathogenic factors that may not be responding well to other acupuncture techniques. According to Maciocia, most Blood stasis occurs in the connecting channels. These channels also allow us a way to release other pathogenic invaders that may be contributing to unresponsive chronic disease in our patients. Use of the Luo Mai is a way to shift your patient from a chronic disease state to a position of health. This is a review and discussion of use of the Luo vessels in veterinary acupuncture. We discuss the area covered by the individual Luo Channels. Then we discuss Luo point location, what Luo pathology looks like clinically, how to palpate and use these points, and clinical use as applied to veterinary acupuncture. This course is suitable for preparation for advanced veterinary certification exams, such as the FAAVA (Fellow of the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture) exam. With completion of the course the veterinarian will understand how to palpate and locate these points, how to use these points clinically and why one would utilize a Luo vessel.
