TTouch® – the Tellington TTouch – is a bodywork and training method based on circular movements of the fingers and hands all over the body. The intent of the TTouch is to activate the function of the cells and awaken cellular intelligence — “turning on the electric lights of the body.”
The TTouch is done on the entire body, each circular TTouch complete within itself. It is not necessary to understand anatomy to be successful in speeding up the healing of injuries or ailments, or changing undesirable habits or behavior.
The Tellington TTouch is a specialized approach to the care and training of our animal companions. This method, based on cooperation and respect offers a positive approach to training, can improve performance and health. While presenting solutions to common behavioral and physical problems, Tellington TTouch also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication.
Using a combination of specific touches, lifts, and movement exercises, TTouch helps to release tension and increase body awareness. This allows the animal to be handled without provoking typical fear responses. The animal can then more easily learn new and more appropriate behaviors. By using the TTouch and a variety of other tools, like the Confidence Course, you can assist the animal in experiencing self-confidence in previously frightening situations. Even the most difficult problems are often eliminated. You can also learn how to apply the Tellington TTouch to assist with recovery from illness or injury, or just enhance the quality of your animal’s life.
This gentle method is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, zoo personnel and shelter workers in 27 countries and on 6 continents.
