Anatomy is THE way to make learning acupoint locations easier! This class puts basic anatomy at your fingertips so you can feel confident with your point location and bodywork with dogs. Your acupressure will improve and your vet will see you in a whole new light.

This course is taught by Susan Tenney who was initially intimidated by learning anatomy. But when she started learning anatomy she marveled at how much it improved her point accuracy, helped her understand the biomechanical issues of her animal clients, and allowed her to speak with confidence to veterinarians.

You’ll learn

  • Basic skeletal and muscular anatomy so that you can better understand canine structure
  • Bony landmarks on the surface of the dog’s body that act as guide posts for finding the acupoints
  • Basic anatomy terminology so you can speak with vets and read veterinary texts with greater ease

Video Instruction

  • You’ll get a detailed tour of the entire biomechanical structure  in a clear accessible manner designed for ALL levels, not just the pros
  • You’ll receive a detailed explanation of how to use anatomy in your acupressure and bodywork
  • You’ll be guided with pre-recorded video through the step by step process of drawing the anatomy onto a plastic model so that you can watch or follow along with your own model (not included)
  • You’ll also watch ultra-practical hands-on anatomy exercises on live dogs so you too can find those bones and muscles hiding beneath the skin of the dogs in your life (both dogs and horses will be demonstrated in our FIVE combined-species meetings)

Class Manuals

  • Detailed manual covering the skeleton, bony landmarks, and muscle anatomy
  • Beautiful richly detailed illustrations drawn by our tremendous veterinary illustrator, Jeanne Peter, who served as head illustrator for the veterinary department for the University of Zurich, Switzerland
