Botanical Self-healing

Also known as applied zoopharmacognosy, botanical self healing is the process of facilitating your dogs innate ability to self medicate from a wide variety of therapeutic and medicinal plant compounds in the form of essential oils, hydrosols, absolutes, plant extracts, macerated oils, tubers, clays, algae, seaweeds and minerals.

It may help calm or alleviate certain behaviours or health issues your dog may be experiencing such as;

  • Anxiety
  • Fear – loud noises such as fireworks or thunder
  • Reactivity
  • Pain and/or discomfort associated with old age or ill health
  • Allergies
  • Loss of a companion be it human or canine
  • Struggling with change – house move or being in rescue
  • In ability to settle
  • Digestive issues
  • Detoxing
  • Immune support
  • Building trust & confidence

This list is not exhaustive!

Wild animals have been self-selecting for hundreds of thousands of years knowing exactly which plants etc they need, how to use them as well as just how much they require in order to heal issues like insect bites and infestation, worms and other parasites, digestive issues or infections and by offering your companion dog a botanical self-healing session you are allowing them to choose for themselves.

Sessions can be carried out in your home or at my base at Strensham Village Hall just off junction 8 of the M5. They are completely guided by your dog and can last between 1 to 3 hours. You will be left with aroma units with the essential oils your dog has specifically selected, plus any left over remedies offered from bowls for you to continue offering to your dog. Within 72 hrs you will receive an email with details on your dogs chosen remedies and order form for you to purchase more should you wish and a “how to” guide on offering each item.

As I am still a student I am only charging £50 per session. This only covers remedies used, once fully qualified session costs will increase to £90.

An additional charge for mileage of 45p per mile will also apply to house visits outside a 10 mile radius of GL20 7TU.
