TTouch is a unique teaching system designed to support our companion animals through times of stress, trauma and problematic behaviour.
TTouch increases awareness and sensation, reduces stress, fear and nervousness, redirects habitual behaviour patterns, builds confidence and focus, eases pain and stiffness due to aging or injury and enhances the learning process.
TTouch allows the animal to attain a mental, physical and emotional balance which contributes to a happy companion.
We use circular movements of the skin in a focussed and concentrated Touch which are the critical link in inspiring the animal’s response, they create a base of self-control and promote thinking beyond mere instinct. By combining verbal, visual, spatial and kinaesthetic modes of training, we enhance the animal’s ability to learn. The circular touches activate brainwave patterns that have been shown to be present during the learning process. When performing TTouch the brain releases endorphines which calm, relax and reduce pain and tension.
TTouch incorporates bodywork and ground exercises as appropriate to improve co-ordination, balance and athletic ability. Tellington TTouch helps increase levels of self-confidence and self-control. The body touches find areas in the animal’s body that indicate tension, fear of contact or discomfort. Specific movements and touches are used to improve circulation, release tension and promote a greater sense of wellbeing.
