What is Tellington TTouch? megphoto

Tellington TTouch is a potent method which permits handling to reduce existing stress rather than adding to it.

It is a hands-on technique that influences the nervous system, allowing learning by activating the body’s cells, integrating body & mind, as a result, encourages a state of health and balance. TTouch is used to help animals through their problems - no matter what the cause. Inappropriate behaviours diminish, health & condition improve, & confidence grows. Your animal starts to think about their actions. The technique is based upon bodywork - moving the skin in light circles, groundwork - simple obstacles to encourage co-ordination, & leading exercises (mainly for dogs) all combine to form TTouch.

How did it develop? Saunders

Whilst training to be a Feldenkrais Practitioner around 30 years ago, Linda Tellington-Jones (a renowned endurance rider in the States) learnt how tension patterns affect the ability to use the body with ease, & how this dis-ease affected the functioning of the mind. Using gentle touch & movements awareness is brought to these patterns, allowing the system to naturally search for new ways of being. Linda began to apply these principles to her horses & saw extraordinary changes; drastically reduced recovery time, injury reduction, & increased performance. Over time, Linda developed the circular TTouches, & started to teach others in seminars & then in the Practitioner Training Programme. There are now Practitioners worldwide, including a strong (& increasing) team here in Britain.

Following 3 years training, I qualified as a TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner in 2004.
There are two ways to help using TTouch:

  • attend a one day workshops & learn how to do the TTouch for yourself, & how to understand your animal companion better. Look at the “workshops” page for more details & to check out dates & locations.

  • Contact me to book a one-to-one consultations where individual problems are addressed. During a session a history is taken, the animal is assessed, practical work completed according to need, & you will be taught how to do the TTouch so that you can continue between sessions.

I am able to offer Tellington TTouch to all animals, except equines.
