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
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
