Veterinary Acupuncture Congress in Cairns

 

It is the last day of the 43rd annual International Veterinary Acupuncture Congress (IVAS) in Cairns. This is the first time the Congress has come to Australia and it has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to discuss all aspects of traditional chinese medicine with our overseas colleagues. We have delved into the traditional world of the Shang Han Lun (written by Zhang Zhong Jing sometime before the year 220) and in the next moment listened to the latest ideas about the Liquid Crystalline Collagen Continuum theory and the Lorenz attractor. The ability of these modern theories of physics to explain our ancient art of acupuncture is akin to watching an episode of the Wonders of the Universe with Professor Brian Cox.
