Linda Tellington-Jones created the Tellington TTouch for the training and care of horses and other animals. While learning TTouch for their animals, horse and pet owners practiced these techniques on each other to better understand what their animals were experiencing. Effectiveness of the TTouch for people became apparent. Over the years, people of all ages realized a new-found sense of well-being and renewal using TTouch. They also got relief from everyday physical and emotional issues such as headaches, backache, neck pain, depression, and sensitivity to touch.
TTouch is gaining acceptance in the human healthcare system. Nurses, massage therapists, physical therapists, physicians and occupational therapists are successfully integrating these techniques into their practices. Nurses use TTouch for post-fracture swelling, labour pain, wound care, and the management of oedema, pain and anxiety. Massage Therapists and Physical Therapists find TTouch effective in cases of chronic pain and Fibromyalgia. In addition to the clinical applications, many healthcare professionals experience much needed relaxation and stress-relief for themselves.
Outside the clinical setting, teachers are using these techniques in the classroom to address behavioural issues and to facilitate problem-solving and positive growth and development in their students.
TTouch-for-You is easy to learn, requires no special equipment and it works! Over the past 20 years, hundreds of cases show TTouch to be a simple and effective means to relieve a vast range of common and uncommon health issues - from a simple headache to a life threatening emergency. We have also gathered a rich legacy of anecdotal evidence to support the effectiveness of TTouch to enhance personal wellness and quality of life.
