What is Tellington – TTOUCH
The Tellington TTouch is a kind and respectful way of working with animals to help them overcome a variety of health and behavioural issues. It was developed more than 30 years ago by Linda Tellington Jones and is now widely used around the world by trainers, shelter workers, vets, physiotherapists, behaviour counsellors, veterinary nurses, competition riders, riding instructors and animal owners.
It consists of different obstacles on the basement, e.g.: the maze, the seesaw, tires, plastic foil and slalom obstacles. Dogs and horses work successfully with this method. The aim of the basement work is, to make animal and human work together and show them, how few signals and which are necessary to notify each other of the actions. In addition, there are certain positions of conduction for human and animal.
The TTouch consists of a circle of a rotation of one and a quarter in clockwise direction. The TTouch is performed with the fingers or the full hand on the skin. It is not a massage! The TTouch mobilises the function of the cells and nerve tracts and helps them to regain balance and conveys a new body feeling. There are more than 20 different TTouches and not all of them consist of the circle, but all of them have the aim, to give the cells new information and the opportunity of recovery and of well-being. With the TTouch, Linda gave us a precious present, a present for all creatures.
