Tellington TTouch for Your Dog

Join Lori Stevens for this one day workshop

What is TTouch?

TTouch is a method of working with animals that was developed by animal expert Linda Tellington-Jones as a result of her experience as a Feldenkrais practitioner. As an experienced horsewoman she realized that some of the Feldenkrais rehabilitation exercises linking body and mind that were used with people could be used to help animals as well. She found that an animal's posture influences its behavior and that physical, mental, and emotional balance are inextricably linked.

Positive Solutions

The combination of TTouch movement exercises and bodywork improves concentration, coordination, behavior, and athletic ability in many animals. TTouch is used widely around the world by trainers, pet owners, and veterinarians.
