TTouch, changing behaviour through posture

Introduction to Tellington TTouch

 

Welcome to my May blog about this unique, holistic and positive method of working and bonding with your animal friends.

My name is Caroline Still and I am a local dog groomer and TTouch Practitioner for companion animals.

 

Developed by Linda Tellington-Jones over 30 yeas ago, TTouch uses simple body movements (Ttouches) to improve circulation, general health and co-ordination.  These touches help to reduce tension, promoting an overall sense of wellbeing and calm.

 

TTouch influences the nervous system with highly effective techniques that not just owners, but care-givers such as vet nurses, groomers and dog walkers can learn and use on a daily basis.  TTouch is non-invasive, and can be used alongside other care.

 

This month:  Puppies!

Well it seems to be puppy season again, with an array of new puppies being walked around Steyning. All paws and floppy ears, bounding around, lurching from one new smell and experience to the next.  Puppies need lots of positive experiences in early life to help them understand the world and know how to communicate appropriately.  By using a harness and giving puppies some space and movement, we can help teach them to be appropriate in their behaviour.  Slow, soft strokes, along their backs can help them settle, and putting in a word alongside this settling will give the start of calming behaviour.   Good luck!
