Mindful Handler, Peaceful Dog

I landed in Washington, DC from Germany May 25th and on the evening of the 27th, I taught a very well-attended training, TTouch for You and Your Dog I am bringing in a new aspect that people really seem to resonate with – teaching them the Three Magic TTouches for self-help to enhance personal well-being and reduce stress and acknowledging these touches as gifts from our animals.

I will be doing the same on Tuesday the 21st at the fund-raiser in Santa Fe so if you are in the area call my Santa Fe office at 800 854 8326 for the venue and details.

Update From the Road!

Roland and I have been on the road since April 1st on a slightly whirl-wind tour. My days have been so full I simply had no time to write about the experiences but have many notes and plan to write more for my blog when I return home.

The 2 months have been action-packed with the following trainings. Our first stop was in Switzerland for a week-long dog training. Then; Germany at Klaus Balkenhols stable where I gave a day-long seminar for dressage horses for 135 members of Xenophon; a 3-day Advanced training for horse and dog practitioners at a German spa; 5 days of private work at a phenomenal dressage stable near Munich; a very exciting 3 day workshop in Italy featuring 5 leading event and endurance riders; a day-long training for care-givers at a senior home in the north of Germany; a week-long TTouch for You training at a German spa, and now this week-long human TTouch training in spectacular mountain country south of Vienna that was formerly the summer vacation spot for royalty. There is a fairy-tale Disney-like castle just up the road that was formerly a Rothchild summer home. (more…)

A Steady Diet of TTouch and Custom Chow Keep Gertie the Doxie Spunky

This is the type of story that keeps me inspired and dedicated to travelling the globe sharing Tellington TTouch. Thank you Linda Troup, for the wonderful work you are doing and your willingness to take the time to share your experiences. It gives many people hope.

From My Inbox: TTouch for Humans

Sabine is a German Companion Animal practitioner (teacher) and wrote to the yahoo group recently to ask for TTouch help for her thumb. She had an injury that resulted in a “snapping” thumb, also known as “trigger thumb” – when the two joints in the thumb pop with the slightest movement. In a recent surgery, a nerve was moved and now that the stitches are out she can feel only 3/4 of the thumb and the rest is numb.

Here’s what I wrote to her:

Dear Sabine,

You have to be extremely respectful of your thumb and treat it with MUCH RESPECT, as though it belonged to someone else you were working on. Most people have the tendency to be angry or frustrated with themselves and use too much pressure. That means you would not be in heart coherence and the healing will take longer.

I had the same problem with my thumb after working on a friend who had years of so much back pain. She could not ride horses any more and her back felt very little except pain. I TTouched her with Nashorn with a 10 pressure for a long time. I NEVER do more than 5 or 6 TTouches at a 10 pressure. It seemed to give her a lot of relief, but I wound up with popping joints in my thumb. I bought a thumb brace to keep it from popping, and did lots of TTouches on it. Now it is totally normal.

My personal experience doesn’t help you, except that I can well imagine what you are going through. And you CAN encourage your body to heal with the help of TTouch and a clear image of how you want your thumb to recover. You’ve got more work to do since the OP operation (?). Talk to your thumb as you do 2 pressure, 2 second Raccoon TTouches –FIRST ON THE HEALTHIER THUMB–reminding your other thumb what it is like to feel it, imagining that your affected thumb can feel it.

It’s important to IMAGINE the cells responding – activating- with light in the cells and sending messages to the parts that cannot yet feel.

I suggest keeping a journal. Give yourself about 5 minutes a day, every day. Map the parts you can feel – and the parts you cannot YET feel. Every day!

When TTouching your thumb, alternate between a 3 pressure (so long as there is no discomfort) and a 2 pressure. If you find that you are holding your breath with a 3 pressure, do less.

If you send me some feedback on these TTouches and procedures, I may have other suggestions for you. It is very important that you hold the image of the improvements you want. That’s proven to be successful to support healing.

Enjoy the journey and know you will learn much.

Liebe Grüße,


…and Sabine’s response:

Dear Linda,

You ttouched my heart very deeply. I felt the love while you were writing this to me. It was as if you read my mind. Yes, some days I am frustrated. I will do everything you suggested. What a great idea to keep a journal – with my dog clients I always do.
I wish I had known before about a thumb brace. But past is past – things happen for a reason!
Thank you so much for letting me share your own experince.

Lot´s of heart hugs to YOU and your family (2 legs or 4 legs)


TTouch Experiences: Linda Hoover, PiT from Colorado Shares Hers

The following TTouch experience of Linda Hoover, Tellington TTouch PIT (Practitioner-in-Training) could inspire one of you to help yourself with TTouch the next time you have hip pain or any other pain. It’s really helpful to learn how much you can help yourself by applying the work we do for animals. We now have more than 2000 cases of the various ways TTouch can help people. It’s what everyone discovers when they attend a weekend or weeklong TTouch for You training. For more than 15 years we have been using body wraps for dogs, cats, horses and humans. We have had remarkable and unexplainable shifts in body awareness and relief from pain or lameness over the years. Here is one more example of the changes that can result from a TTouch body wrap.
