Course overview

As holistic practitioners, we aim to support and maximise an animal’s natural healing ability by advising and guiding the owner in appropriate complementary treatment. An animal’s medical condition should always be first diagnosed by a vet, but it is possible to blend the best of both worlds by using the skills of the traditional veterinary surgeon and holistic healers together.  Imbalances and disharmonies are treated using frequencies from flower and gem essences, therapeutic grade essential oils, homoeopathy, hands-on healing and crystals.  This course will enable you to learn how to communicate intuitively with animals, to be sensitive to their energies and how to use a range of healing applications.
