Tellington TTOUCH for children,
teenager and adults
with meantal health projects
The world is getting more and more complex, ever bigger and ever faster. I would like to instruct the TTOUCH to bring some peace, compassion and fellowship into the environment.
The Tellington TTouch Training offers a gentle approach to the care and training of companion animals, horses, farm animals, exotics and wildlife. It is also an effective and empowering method that provides self-help for humans.
Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, PhD (Hon), this method is based on cooperation and respect for all animals and their people.
The approach in the field of canines is widely accepted as a powerful method to improve behavior, enhance performance and health and teach a dog to learn willingly. It helps establish a deeper rapport and more effective connection and understanding between humans and their animals.
The Tellington Method is comprised of four components:
– Gentle body work called Tellington TTouch comprised of circular touches, lifts, and slides;
– Movement exercises in “The Playground for Higher Learning;
This gentle method is currently being used by animal owners, trainers, breeders, veterinarians, zoo personnel and shelter workers on four continents. There are 1600 certified Tellington practitioners teaching TTouch in round 28 countries to help dogs, cats or other pets and human beings.
The Tellington TTOUCH Method has settled marvellously in the world of animal owners and is growing steadily. But this method is more than a training tool for animal lovers.
Empathy and the Tellington TTOUCH
A lot of scientific studies show that a lack of empathy runs the risk of becoming drug addicted. In addition, drug addicts can’t feel empathy through their addictions. Being addicted is a very lonely and selfish situation.
And a lot of scientific studies show that it is good for body and soul to be together with animals. With the Tellington TTOUCH we ae doing something good for the animals we are working with but also we are doing the same good to us and the person next to us.
“See how she leans her cheek upon her hand. O, that I were a glove upon that hand That I might touch that cheek!” William Shakespeare
Oxytocin and the Tellington TTOUCH
Interpersonal touch is frequently used for communicating emotions, strengthen social bonds and to give others pleasure. The neuropeptide oxytocin increases social interest, improves recognition of others’ emotions, and it is released during touch. Here, we investigated how oxytocin and gentle human touch affect social impressions of others, and vice versa, how others’ facial expressions and oxytocin affect touch experience.
Linda Tellington-Jones currently doing a study on measuring oxytocin levels on participants at one of California’s prestigious universities, as is one of our colleagues in Germany.
This workshops are from a few hours to one day and if possible in a cooperation with an animal charity.
