What Do Clients Think Of TTouch For You®

“TTouch® improved my ability to stand and walk. Though I do have a genetic disorder that affects my balance and energy, it no longer defines me.”
– Lise M.

“Since I registered for this program, I have had some really nice experiences getting rid of pain and tension in my body. This way of learning online is much better for me than visiting a workshop in person. Being highly sensitive/empathic, I need my space and breaks. Being at a computer offers this. I am so glad I found TTouch®! Thank you!”

For over 45 years the Tellington TTouch® Method has been changing the way humans and horses interact.  Many of the ideas that were considered “weird” and “unorthodox” in the beginning are today considered mainstream and have been  readily absorbed into equine culture.

Among these previously “radical” ideas is the acknowledgement of the inter-connectivity between physical, mental, and emotional balance in all beings.  Considering behavioral issues in a “wholistic” way allows one to develop and use  tools that get to the root of an issue, and actually resolve the cause, rather than just address the symptom.

The “Body Wraps” have become an integral piece of the Tellington TTouch Method, complementing the bodywork and the groundwork exercises in a way that integrates the external information  into the horse’s body at the cellular level.  Their gentle, non-invasive, non-restrictive nature passively increase the horse’s body-awareness while in motion or standing still.

The changes in postural habits, tension patterns, and functionality can result in unbelievable improvements in a horse’s self-confidence, self-control, balance, and overall coordination.  Perhaps the most amazing thing about the “Body Wraps” is their long lasting effect.  Even when taken off the body,  the change is often maintained.

Horses who have only worn the wraps a handful of times often continue to benefit from their effects without regular re-application.

In this easy to follow, information filled course you will learn how simple and effective it can be to add TTouch Body Wraps to your current program.

This course includes:

➡️ Instant lifetime access 24/7

➡️ 5 learning sections covering 10 specific topics

➡️ Over 120 minutes of how-to videos and lectures

➡️ Detailed written descriptions and trouble-shooting tips
