Examples of TTouches
The Ear TTouch is one of the most important things you can do for your animal. It is a wonderful way to start your session and is useful if you have only a few minutes to spend. There are many acupuncture points that when stimulated will provide beneficial results.
The Ear TTouch is particularly important in cases of emergency and shock. This TTouch helps induce relaxation, reduce stress, improve digestion and overcome fatigue and car sickness.
How to: Position yourself so that you can support the head with one hand. On the opposite side of the head, the thumb of the other hand is on the outside of the ear and the folded forefinger on the other underside. Slide finger and thumb towards the tip of the ear and repeat several times, covering different portions of the ear with each slide.
With a cat, the slide can start with the thumb at the center of the cat's head, and you may choose to use both hands at the same time.
Pressure: Gently stroke from the base of the ear to the tip.
