Join Rachel Jackson (Tellington TTouch Instructor and Veterinarian Physiotherapist), virtually, Sunday Afternoons, 2- 5pm (UK Time Zone): starting on April 16th, continuing on April 23rd with a final session on April 30th, from 2- 6pm (UK Time Zone),
Learn trust-based, gentle, effective and supportive techniques from the comfort of home. This includes 10 hours of live, virtual, group instruction and life-time access to a self-paced online study course.
The Tellington TTouch Method is a gentle, hands-on approach that improves well-being, behaviour, cooperation and the relationship people have with animals. It includes the use of a specialized form of bodywork, specific types of equipment and creative movement exercises that are easy to learn and used with all types of animals.
Most importantly, the Tellington TTouch Method facilitates trust and enhanced communication between humans and animals. TTouch can be integrated into daily life to increase confidence, reduce stress, improve focus and enhance well-being, making TTouch perfect for busy people!
These techniques are easy to learn and provide many solutions to common concerns by recognizing each animal and person as unique individuals. Rather than a set protocol for particular issues, the Tellington TTouch Method offers creative solutions customized to each situation.
This module encompasses the “Bodywork” component of the Tellington TTouch Method, one part of the whole.

About Your Instructor
It all started 24 years ago when Rachel adopted a beautiful, sweet, two year old lurcher from a local rescue. Fionn turned out to be petrified of other dogs, among other things. In her desire to help Fionn, she started to investigate ways to make his life easier. Rachel started to learn about dog behaviour, completing a two year dog trainer and behaviour course and have continued on a 20 year learning journey. Through my knowledge she has helped other people and their animals too. This was how her beautiful, scared, sweet natured dog laid the foundations for what has become Rachel’s passion.
By combining Veterinary Physiotherapy, Tellington TTouch Training and other modalities, Rachel can help solve your animal’s problems by creating a bespoke treatment plan for their unique needs, bringing them back into balance and creating a harmonious relationship between you and your best friend.
Located in the North West of England, Rachel has many years experience teaching and working with animals and their people all over the UK.
