Unlock your animal’s secret code to health and happiness with It’s Elementary PRO, a course specially geared to animal professionals and those considering becoming one. This new version of a popular Five Element starter course is designed as a first glance at the beauty and wisdom of Five Element theory for animals – to be used by the more serious student.

ALL levels are welcome and will benefit from this starter course. Our focus will be on using these techniques in the context of a professional acupressure or bodywork practice OR in any other animal related profession where the Five Elements can be invaluable. Examples include: dog or horse trainer, riding instructor, barn manager, breeder, dog groomer, dog walker or doggie daycare worker, horse groom/stable hand, osteopath, energy worker including Reiki/Animal Communication etc, riding instructor, farrier/hoof care specialist, vet tech, veterinarian, professional rider as well as any animal lover with a deep love for animals who wishes to take a close first look at how to support their animal with Five Element Acupressure.

This course starts at the beginning. We’ll take a look at how Classical Chinese Medicine describes five different Types (archetypes or temperaments) that make up an animal’s being. Then we’ll see how those archetypes influence the health and behavior of the animal at the very deepest levels.

By the time you reach the end of the course, you’ll see how the five Types play out in both large and small animals (as well as humans who care and interact with them). You’ll also have practical tools from acupressure to training strategies to help the animals in a professional animal related practice thrive.

And we’ll do this all by keeping everything clear, practical, and ACCESSIBLE while also giving special insight for the animal professionals.

You’ll learn

  • How to identify the Five Element profiles in an animal so that you better understand your client’s unique and wonderful nature
  • Acupressure Points that support each Element profile so you can use simple touch points to help the animals in your care feel great
  • Customized training approaches for each of the Five Element Types so learning and training becomes easier and lower stress for BOTH your clients AND YOU
  • How to make simple lifestyle changes that support an animal’s unique health and happiness needs to that you can skip formulaic solutions that aren’t working for your clients and focus only on what a customized approach that REALLY works for the animals in your care (for amateurs and pros)
