Dr. Bruno: Here is the big deal, because of the results, and I presented these results at [Ucluelet 00:00:09] Medical School seminar that we had in 1973, fall of ’73. The results on animals were so amazing that it can help legislators understand that this was not hypnosis or voodoo. Okay, so if it works on a horse and a … well, it works on a human, okay. That helped get the law passed in a lot of places because we had the data. In fact, how would you hypnotize a horse and say you don’t have emphysema anymore? There’s no placebo factor, that is it. Yeah, there’s no placebo involved.

Marilyn Allen: Good day, everyone. I want to wish you a happy spring and welcome to our webinar presented by the American Acupuncture Council. Today, we’re very fortunate to have someone who has been involved in acupuncture since actually, it was before licensing in almost any state. He was a co-founder of NISA in Boston as well as many other things.

One of the things that he did that we’re going to talk about today is animal acupuncture. He actually brought it to this country. He’s going to share with us a history from China, and what I want to make you please understand is if you want to do animal acupuncture or acupuncture on animals, whether they be small or large, you need to be sure of what the regulations are in your own individual state. You want to check with the board. You want to know what you have to do in order to be legal and to be covered on malpractice insurance.
