Behavioral problems – online course

Dog reflexology and acupressure: Behavioral problems – online course

This course is targetted on behavioral problems in dogs and is particularly suitable for those who already work with behaviour, e.g. behavior advisors and behavior therapists, as well as those who have problems with their own dog’s behaviour. You learn reflexes and acupressure points for e.g. anxiety, aggressiveness, resource defense, stress, etc.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, on which both reflexology and acupressure are founded, you have psychological aspects in the 5 elements that can be related to behavior. For example, the liver organ, if it is in an energetic imbalance, then the dog could be aggressive, angry, quick-tempered, quick-witted, threatening, impatient, irritable, etc. If the liver is brought into balance with, for example, reflexology and acupressure, then the emotional imbalances will also be brought into balance, and you will be able to work 100% optimally with your behavioral therapy.

Each organ has feelings attached to it, and if there is an imbalance in an organ, it could be shown by an imbalance in the feeling that relates to the organ, just like before with liver and anger.

It will be obvious to use this knowledge in your work with behavioral therapy, as the 2 forms of therapy will complement each other in the most beautiful way.
