Why study with BEVAS?
Selected for their didactic abilities we can rely on; Dr. Emiel Van Den Bosch, Dr. Albert Snijders, D. Puertas Navarro, Dr. Luna Gutierrez, Dr. Are Thoresen, Dr Kati Van Den Bosch,Dr Jorge Luque and Dr Juliet Decaestecker, all of different origin and professional background , but united by the same commitment and passion for veterinary acupuncture.
Since the first course in 1984, we have evolved, and continue to do so, to assure the best possible training, incorporating the latest developments in veterinary acupuncture.
The actual course format is a result of the continuing efforts of improvement we go through. The so called hybrid course has many benifits in our opinion.
Since we have experimented with a variety of different course formats over the last 34 years hosting courses, we believe that this Hybrid format is totally up to standards of our modern times.
Next to that we offer continuing education seminars for acupuncturists who want to expand their knowledge and other subjects as Herbal medicine, Japanese veterinary acupuncture techniques and Food therapy.
about BEVAS and studying with us
about Acupuncture in veterinarian medicine
about Living and transformation
Drs Luc Janssens and Jan Still made the first complete acupuncture maps for dogs, still a reference today: “Acupuncture points and meridians in the dog”
Drs Emiel van Den Bosch and Jean-Yves Guray made the first complete acupuncture maps for horses: “Acupuncture points and meridians in the Horse”.
Drs Luc Janssens and Emiel van Den Bosch studied acupuncture in humans at the BVGA.
They would be accompanied by other pioneers, dr Andre Demontoy, George de Bilderling, dr Westermayer and dr Kotbauer, to actively promote Veterinary Acupuncture in Europe, all in their own particular way. Until dr Marvin Cain (USA) introduced them to IVAS, which was about to start the first structured veterinary acupuncture course in the Western world in the late 1970’s.
First IVAS certified Veterinary Acupuncture course in Belgium, and Europe, organized by BEVAS.
In the same year, the first ever, international veterinary acupuncture congress was organised at the RUCA in Antwerp, Belgium with speakers from Europe, the United States of America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
In the late 1980’s a small group of veterinarians set up the legal structure of non-profit organisation for BEVAS as an official affiliate of IVAS. From the continuing educational efforts and classes in Belgium, various other European societies would emerge. Founded in term by colleagues, who studied veterinary acupuncture with us in Belgium.
Since 2013, Continuing education has become obligatory for veterinarians in Belgium. We are proud to communicate that the thorough structure of our courses allowed the Flemish Veterinary Board (N.G.R.O.D.) to accredit us official Continuing Educational credits, which are valid worldwide.
