The purpose of the education is to provide the student with a professional approach to practicing reflexology and acupressure on dogs as well as applying other complementary treatment such as homeopathic medicine and Bach’s flower remedies.

You will learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is the theoretical background for reflexology and acupuncture.

You will get a fundamental knowledge of the dog’s anatomy and physiology through lessons on E-learning made by a veterinarian.

This combination of knowledge from the West and the East has proved to be able to help dogs with physical as well as behavioral problems.

The book “Dog reflexology and acupressure” is the first book in the world regarding reflexology on dogs, where the dog's organs and other areas of the body are illustrated anatomically and technically correct. The book is authored by Vivian Birlie and contains clear and precise illustrations compiled by Vivian Birlie with consultancy services in anatomy/physiology from veterinarian Zita Birlie. This book is also the syllabus and the basis for the education.
