Mary Jo Kreitzer PhD, RN, FAAN, founder and director of Center for Spirituality and Healing and associate professor, University of Minnesota School of Nursing states in the foreword: People around the world are using [TTouch] on their animals, each other and themselves. Powerful stories are emerging that suggest that it offers some significant benefits and is of very low to no risk....sufficient anecdotal evidence and early research suggest that there just might be something unique and powerful about this gentle form of caring touch and that it behooves the health care and scientific community to take a hard look at what it might offer.
Tellington TTouch is a system of circular TTouches, lifts and slides developed by Linda Tellington-Jones more than 40 years ago for the training and care of horses and other animals. While teaching TTouch to animal owners, these techniques were practiced by owners on each other in order to understand what their animals were experiencing. Effectiveness of TTouch for people quickly became apparent in the countless stories of individual responses to these TTouches. Among those attending these early workshops were nurses, physicians and other health care professionals. These health care providers began to apply TTouch in clinical practices with human patients, including for post-fracture swelling, wound healing, and the management of edema, pain and anxiety.
As health care professionals began to document the successes informally, a repository of anecdotal evidence provide a rich legacy of beginning evidence of the effectiveness of TTouch. Completed and published research trials provide promising early scientific evidence of the potential value of Tellington TTouch (Wendler, 1999; 2000; 2002). More and more health care professionals are learning and using TTouch, and this growing interest has provided the impetus for the development of this handbook.
