Ayurveda animal therapist

  • Treat animals holistically with internal and external Ayurvedic therapies.

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

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

Ayurvedic therapy is also an effective and holistic path to better health for animals. As an Ayurvedic animal therapist, the focus is on Ayurvedic therapy through nutrition, herbs and manual therapy for animals. This training provides you with the knowledge to determine the constitution of animals and to analyze the cause of an ailment from an Ayurvedic perspective. Your subsequent therapy plan consists of internal approaches (lifestyle, diet, feed 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 in-depth knowledge of Ayurvedic veterinary medicine. This will enable you to preventively strengthen the health of animals and treat their ailments. Type-appropriate nutritional and herbal recommendations as well as therapeutic strategies for feeding, husbandry and training help to strengthen the animal'sphysical resilience and balanced psyche, as well as practical therapy using 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 work on the animal yourself in manual therapy, thus covering all the components of holistic Ayurveda therapy for the animal.

The course is suitable for anyone who loves animals, as well as for veterinary practitioners, trainers and other professionals working with dogs, cats and horses.
