My professional life revolves around using TTouch and Feldenkrais
to help humans and animals find ways to feel better, cope with
stress, enjoy better health, and act more comfortably and
effectively. Both methods address the nervous system, calling upon
its intelligence to recover the ease and comfort that we may
remember from childhood. They can provide a means for overcoming
the many big, or just bothersome, injuries and dysfunctions that
most of us find ourselves dealing with as we grow up or grow old.
The process is one that encourages adaptation by helping us and
animals become aware, consciously and unconsciously, of what we do
and how we do it. It gives a sense of other possibilities and
provides supportive environments in which to explore those
possibilities and make appropriate and healthy choices.
Description of TTouch provided by Edie Jane from:
is a gentle, positive teaching method that combines bodywork and
ground exercises to improve co-ordination and balance. Good
physical balance positively influences emotional and mental
states, helping animals to be calmer, and improving their ability
to focus. They become better able to develop self-control and
self-confidence - the lack of which underlies most undesirable
behaviors and interferes with the ability to learn.
Developing healthy minds in healthy bodies increases the well-
being and contentedness of our animals. Added benefits are the
development of a deeper rapport between human and animal through
mutual understanding and communication, and improved interactions
with animal professionals - vets, groomers, etc. - by easing
handling and diminishing stress (for both!).
TTouch we can give back to our animals some of the immeasurable
gifts they give us throughout their lives, improve their comfort
as they age, and eventually ease their passing. It can be a great
comfort for us to have something useful to do at times when we may

felt supported. Everyone was kind, not judgmental. The week was
filled with fun and laughter, and what I learned was beyond
measure. I'll never look at a horse the same way; now I have 'TTouch
