Ayurvedic Animal Therapist

  • Treat animals holistically with internal and external therapies from Ayurveda.

  • Study the effects of Ayurvedic herbs, medicinal plants, oils and pastes.

  • Learn to apply Ayurvedic dietetics and special manual therapies to animals.

Ayurvedic therapy is also an effective and holistic way to better health for animals. As an Ayurvedic animal therapist, the focus is on Ayurvedic therapy through nutrition, herbs and manual therapy of animals. With this training you get the knowledge to determine the constitution of animals and to analyze the cause of an ailment from an Ayurvedic point of view. Your subsequent therapy plan will consist of internal approaches (lifestyle, diet, food supplements) and external applications (massages, compresses, pastes and enemas).

The innovative training concept with interactive online training, practical seminar and individual training support provides you with a profound knowledge of Ayurvedic veterinary medicine. This enables you to preventively strengthen the health of animals and to treat their complaints. Thereby, type-appropriate nutrition and herbal recommendations as well as therapy strategies for feeding, keeping and training help to strengthen thephysical resilience and balanced psyche of the animal, as well as the practical therapy through oils, pastes, massages, herbal stamps and enemas.

In contrast to the Ayurveda Animal Health Coach, here you will not only work in an advisory capacity, but will also be involved in the manual therapy of the animal itself, thus covering all the building blocks of a holistic Ayurveda therapy of the animal.

The training is suitable for all who love animals as well as for animal healers, trainers and other professional fields around dogs, cats and horses.
