What is Tellington TTouch?
TTouch is a method used to help animals through their problem - no matter what the cause. Inappropriate behaviours diminish, health & condition improve and 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, and leading exercises (mainly for dogs) all combining to form TTouch.

How did it develop?
Whilst training to be a Feldenkrais Practitioner around 30 years ago, Linda Tellington-Jones (a renowned endurance rider in the United States) learnt how tension patterns affect the ability to use the body with ease and how this affected the functioning of the mind. Using gentle touch and 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 and saw extraordinary changes; drastically reduced recovery times, injury reduction and increased performance.

Over time, Linda developed the circular TTouches and started to teach others in seminars and then via the Practitioner Training Programme. There are now practitioners worldwide, including a strong (and growing) team here in the UK.

Mekuti and TTouch
Mekuti is run by Rachael Greenland who is a qualified TTouch P2 Companion Animal Practitioner.

Rachael has used her skills and knowledge over the years working with all breeds of dogs and cats to design and develop a number of products and techniques which use the principle of TTouch primarily the Mekuti Balance Harness which helps dogs stop pulling and encourages balanced walking that can help alleviate discomfort from and often improve conditions such as hip dysplasia by evening out muscle development particularly in young dogs.

Other Mekuti products congruent with TTouch include Mekuti Leg Wraps to help address walking and gait issues as well as helping with Agility Dogs; TTouch Body Wraps, T-Shirts and Jumpers which all help to reduce anxiety. Visit our Products Page for more information on these and other animal centred training and behaviour products.

How can I help my animal ?
When you contact a Practitioner (or Practitioner in training - who is qualified to conduct one to one sessions), you can either;

  • Attend a one or two day workshop to learn how to do the TTouches (cost is usually about 40 for a day depending on the area). Look at the workshop listing at TTouch UK , at my workshops page at Animal Sense or,

  • Book a one-to-one session - addressing you & your animals individual needs. During a session a history is taken, the animal is assessed, practical work completed according to need and you will be taught how to do the TTouches so that you can continue between sessions.
