Tellington T Touch:
You and your pet share a unique bond, from petting to bathing, to brushing and in between, but did you know that there’s a way to awaken your dog and make them more apt. to learn your commands, and focus? After all your pup that loves on you all the time could probably use some extra TLC.
T Touch massage is just that, a massage is to relax and melt away stress, while the T touch is used to awaken the mind, create focus, and enhance the animals ability to learn.
Linda Tellington-Jones the developer of the TTouch method wanted to determine if the TTouch was bennifecial so she did EEG studies on horses 25 years ago. “What she found was, both the person performing the TTouch and the animal receiving TTouch experienced an activation in all four types of brain waves, in both hemispheres of the brain. Beta brain waves, which are active in humans for logical thinking, were surprisingly present whenever the circular TTouches were applied. Alpha brain waves, which have to be present for people to learn, were present in the animal. Tellington believes that the activation of Beta and Alpha brain waves in animals helps them focus and learn.” This did not happen with petting, stroking or massage.
The T-touch is a gentle circular method of lifts and moves, in basic TTouch you don’t rub the skin you just move it around in small circles then back to the original spot. T Touch will help keep your pets calm and focused. Over time the T Touch technique will help improve your pets clarity and overall health. Its also great for the humans preforming the T Touch they are more relaxed and focused and in tune with their pets.
There are many workshops around the country to teach you TTouch. There are also books, and video references. We are going to be posting our own video with our pets and T Touch. Whats great about this method is that it can be used on cats, dogs, horses and other humans-so once you prefect it on your animal friend, you can try it on your human partner for extra kisses.
