Comic checks? Owls in therapy

Eulenswalks against Burnout
The Eulenswalker is designed to help burn out children and help to alleviate concentration and learning problems by concentrating on the owls.

Owls have forward-facing eyes, can turn their heads around 270 degrees, fly silently, and even hear a mouse squeal. Their abilities led to all kinds of superstitions( fotolia / birtoiu)

One hour owl costs 80 euros
Wolf goes with the owls into retirement homes, schools, hospitals and hospices. An owl hour costs 80 euros.

Owl meditation
She explains the meaning of the owl response: "A silent conversation with an owl can give new impulses - that is like meditating," she says.80 euros per hour costs the "eulenkuscheln".
"Owls Have Something Mystic"
This says the naturopath and supports this imagination by giving her little owls the name of the pheasantWizard Gandalf and Radagast from the Lord of the Rings. The reference to the "Waldschrat" Radagast probably underlines the association with nature magic.

Owls resting in themselves?
Wolf wants their customers to rest by placing the animals on their hands. The animals would rest in themselves, which could lead to more serenity in humans.

Soul Vision
In addition, she suspects an almost magical ability of her birds. According to focus, she says, "Owls look into the soul of man."

The magical owl
Scarcely an animal is as magically charged as the owl. Even the generic name of the "Strix" is derived from Roman mythical creatures, the strings, which should suck the blood in birds. Which in turn became another term for witch.

Death Botter and Healing
In ancient Greece the owl was regarded as a bird of wisdom and enlightenment, in the Middle Ages Europe it was connected to the devil and witches.

Fables and Diseases
Revengeful gods took the owl shape, the wild hunting of Odins led an owl. Our ancestors interpreted the call of the Waldkauz "Kuwitt" as "Come with" and as an announcement of an imminent death. Madness and insanity cost innumerable carriages of life, which nailed the peasants to barn doors, to keep "evil" away.

Nocturnal hunts
Owls have oddities that predestine them for magical fantasies: They see at night, and they fly silently;they can turn their heads up to 270 degrees.

Large, forward-facing eyes
Owls have large, forward-facing eyes, the retina is shortened, and the convex lens is surrounded by scleral nodules. Therefore, they can see spatially and estimate gaps.

Fantastic hearing
Owls have special ear openings that are slightly asymmetrical. In addition, many owls have a facial veil( Schleierulen), which directs the sound towards the ears. The wide skull supports the location of noises additionally.

You are listening to the mouse run
The hearing center is well developed, a veil has three times as much nerve cells as a crow. For example, a bugle can hear sounds of 10,000 hertz, and with this she hears mice squealing.

Looking into the soul?
When Ms Wolf is convinced that "owls can look into the soul of the human being", she does not find any zoological or real statement, but spreads her magical associations to the fascinating eyesight of the owls. But this does not serve in realitas to "look into the soul" anyone, but helps to fix the prey in low light.

Animal-assisted therapy
Animal-assisted therapy describes all procedures in which the contact to animals is intended to positively change the lives of humans, from borderline patients who get through dogs a day's structure through autists who learn with animals to lose their awe of touchto depressants, who make first steps to communicate with people through contact with an animal.

Are owls suitable for therapies?
We need to distinguish between trained therapies such as dogs who act as "therapists" and animals whose mere contact supports therapy.

Presence counts
Just as in rabbits alone stroking a positive stimulus, and the singing of a canary bird cheerfully troubles pondering, owls can, of course, accompany a therapy.

Healing Through Nature?
Wolf is right: Wild animals can generally help us overcome stress and anxiety. We observe a life outside of ourselves that is not of interest to our problems. And we communicate with animals whether we want to or not - a walk at the Ententeich has already solved many feeling knots.

Magical Thinking
The healing practitioner decorates her owls with mystical symbolism, but unfortunately she does not decipher her own metaphors. Rather, it spreads in the esoteric scene common symbols of owls, but these have only to do with their zoological reality only peripherally.

What do animal therapists say?
The President of the European Society for Animal-assisted Therapy, Rainer Wohlfarth, sees Wolf's Eulenswalker critically. He says."You should only work with domesticated animals in the therapy."

Are the owl hikes meaningless?
Wohlfarth does not generally regard the owl migration as useless: "I can imagine a new effect." This corresponds in the narrow sense but not to animal-assisted therapy. This is mainly about body contact, communication, and interaction with animals, which seek contact with humans on their own.(Source: Fokus)( Dr. Utz Anhalt)

Bianka Wolf, a Heilpraktikerin from Hohenwestedt in Schleswig-Holstein goes on therapeutic walks with owls. Here: The Uhu Saphira, the Chacokauz Radagast and the White-faced Gandalf.
