Anima-Chi Training Courses

AIAT is delighted to team up with Dr Isla Fishburn of Kachina Canine to offer you a series of courses in animal wellness therapies. Under the Anima-Chi range, the first practitioner course we will be offering in Autumn 2018 is Anima-Chi Phytotherapy.

The Anima-Chi Phytotherapy course follows the practice, methods and science of Zoopharmacognosy, of which Dr Isla Fishburn is a qualified practitioner via the Ingraham Academy of Zoopharmacognosy. The course combines how the biology of plants can improve or support an animal’s physical, psychological, physiological and energetic distresses to promote and maintain health.

Using a collection of specific parts of a plant that are offered to an animal, the animal can choose a variety and combination of these plant parts when suffering with an illness, physical condition, emotional disturbance, pain, energetic chaos or other ailments.

The specific collections of plant parts selected are unique to the individual animal’s route, needs and challenges to health.    

This practice is a scientific approach that allows an animal to have options for natural health. By understanding the long evolution, history and co-existence between plants and animals you will learn the science behind how and why plants can improve the health of an animal and how animals can choose their own route to health and wellness.
