Tellington Touch

Tellington Touch, often referred to as TTouch, is a gentle and non-invasive method of working with animals to promote relaxation, improve well-being and influence behavior.


Developed by internationally recognized animal expert, Linda Tellington-Jones, this method is based on cooperation and respect for all animals and their people.

Tellington Touch involves gentle connected circular touches, and some lifting and stroking movements on the skin in order to stimulate the body cells’ function and awaken the innate “intelligence” within cells themselves.

Tellington Touch is particularly useful in reducing fear, anxiety and stress in your cats and to positively influence behaviors like shyness, hyperactivity and over-reactivity to stimuli. It also enhances body awareness and proprioception, which can be beneficial for animals recovering from injuries or with mobility issues.


Additionally, the gentle and respectful nature of TTouch fosters a positive connection between the animal and the person applying this method. By learning some basic TTouches and sharing them with your beloved cat, you can deepen the bond and trust between you and your furry companion. This is especially valuable for cats who have been undersocialized as kittens or have experienced trauma or other negative situations reflected in their behavior.


Tellington Touch is a valuable practice that can enhance the well-being of your feline companion, positively influence behavior and strengthen the connection between you and your cat.
