Animal PsychAromatica aims to support animal wellbeing, calm the mind (psyche) and offer aromatics to promote natural self-healing and prevent dis-ease. The APA Certificate Online Intensive prepares you to work professionally with animals and their people and launch your animal wellness business. It teaches you safe use of essential oils, based on the science of zoopharmacognosy, as well as the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine for a truly holistic overview. We also cover the anatomy and physiology of stress, how it affects the animals that live with us, and how to reduce it through understanding a species’ natural needs. APA nurtures body, mind, and soul to create true well-being for all creatures with nature’s guidance and a deep understanding of the power of healing intention. You will be learning with a supportive group of fellow students as Nayana shares her decades of experience through ‘live’ lessons, that inspire you to connect with plant medicine and our animal friends in a deep and meaningful way.
