Many of us are well aware of the many benefits animals bring to our lives. Their very presence is a gift, and we're always on the lookout for ways to help them be as happy and healthy as possible. Linda Tellington-Jones has developed a simple method we can all use to help our animals relax, heal faster, learn more easily, and become well-adjusted, confident individuals. Her technique for using touch, called Tellington Touch or TTouch®, has been used by caregivers, trainers and veterinarians around the world, and is now being taught at the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing. Ms. Tellington-Jones also advocates the use of mental communication to help animals understand what we ask of them, and offers simple explanations for how we can use our intuition to deepen our relationship with those companions we care so much about. Her compassionate, respectful approach "is about seeking or recognizing the individuality of our animals and the souls of our animals." (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)


Linda Tellington-Jones has more than four decades of experience working with animals. She has developed the Tellington TTouch as a system of animal training, healing, and communication that allows people to relate to animals in a deeper, more compassionate way, a way that furthers inter-species connection and honors the body, mind, and spirit of both animals and their people. The Tellington Method utilizes a variety of techniques of touch, movement and body language to affect behavior, performance, and heath, and to increase an animal’s willingness and ability to learn in a painless and anxiety-free environment. She has taught in many universities and has conducts workshops worldwide. Her work has been introduced as a valuable method to reduce stress in wild life rehabilitation and to enhance the well-being of animals in zoos.
