Tellington TTouch

I am a practioner in training for TTouch. This works, just ask Sasha, before her last surgery I did TTouch on her ears and her body, after surgery I had to transport her from my Vet to the overnight Emerg Clinic, on the drive there I did Ear work on her, after she was settled in the kennel I did more earwork, the Vet Tech told me that she would be ready to go home late afternoon or early evening the following day....the vet called me at 9:30 am and said she is fantastic come and get her.

Wow, 18 hours after a 2 and a half hour surgery she is up, eating and ready to come home. She jumped into the truck (little one) and jumped out of it at home. I made her a nice bed on the floor and did TTouch off and on all day, she also did not cry or whine during this time. Her recuperation from this was much quicker then she recovered from the same type of surgery 3 yrs ago.

SOOOOO, I just completed my 2nd week of classes to become a practioner, the touches, bodywraps, groundwork and more is in my toolbox and if I can pass any info to others I am happy to do so. Now, the closer you are to me the better or please contact a practioner in your area because it really does work for behaivor, confidence and so much more.

PS: rgeurts, my last week in Calgary was so worth it. Sasha was pretty tired becausse we worked with our dogs alot. patti

Very interesting. Does it just deal with the circles or are there other touches too? I just watched a video on Utube. Might be a good thing to try to practice on cats that are a little upset by being in a new situation. Or even some that are a little shy.
Thanks for sharing.

Sounds so interesting, I'm sure it's very calming for the animals. to you for learning this, I hope you are able to make a career out of it (if that's your plan) and helping animals along the way.

The majority of the touches are circular but there are also "slides,lifts" they do help to calm your pets and provide a healthy alternative to just meds...yes you still need to see your vets.....the classes teach pretty much the same thing every time but we (people) only pick up what we need at the time. This past week when our instructor went over mouthwork it really stuck with me. This technique really helps to release tension in the mouth, jaw, lips and neck areas.

One of the things the instructor showed us about Cats is the way to hold them without causing a lot of stress on them. If you use a towel like a cape around their necks and let them stand on their feet they are going to be way more relaxed then if you wrap them in a towel and try to confine them.

I am taking the training to become a practioner and plan on working with many pets/animals in the future. If you research Linda Tellington-Jones you will find that she has touched animals all over the world, including Boa Constrictors and Cockroaches, she has also worked with animals in zoos around the world. patti

I went to a horse workshop years ago with Robyn. It was awesome, we got to actually work hands on with the horses. I should look into getting back into it. It works on people too!

pattymac, what a treat for you, I really enjoy Robyn's teaching she makes things easy to understand and her body language with the animals is so calming. I am going to her farm in Vernon in July for my 4th week of traing for companion animals and I am looking forward to meeting some of her horses. These touches are amazing!! patti
