The healing energies capable of helping the instinctive and unconscious self to become acceptable and functioning in conscious life.

Very similar to doctor, only caring for our animal nature. Jung write of this in saying Christ himself symbolically appears as the Lamb of God or the Fish, but he is also the serpent exalted on the cross, the lion, and in rarer cases the unicorn. These animal attributes of Christ indicate that even the Son of God (the supreme personification of man) can no more dispense with his animal nature than with his higher, spiritual nature. See The Spiritual Path

That is particularly so of humans who are often divided from their fundamental animal self. For you as a person are a tiny spark of consciousness, a little bit of self awareness, for you are the latest face/person riding an incredibly ancient beat that you call your body. Remember that your body has formed from cells and genetic information that has gradually developed over millions of years. It holds that information in itself, unconsciously.  See animals; doctor; Seed.
