It has been almost a month since Amber's last check in. We have been working with her trying to help her emerge more from her shell. With the support of RAGOM, we had an independent party come over to meet Amber and show us some techniques to help Amber rid her stress.
During the evaluation we learned that Amber carries 95% percent of her stress in her hind end, hips, legs, etc. She is in “flight mode”, meaning she still struggles to relax at times, and especially around new people.
We were given instructions on how to help Amber release that tension using the Tellington T-Touch method. Tellington TTouch Training is a gentle, respectful method of training that honors the body, mind and spirit of animals and their people and develops trust between humans and animals.
The circular TTouches can reduce fear and pain, enhance cellular function and communication and support the healing potential of the body.
By doing some of the exercises given to us in small moments so as not to overwhelm Amber, we have observed that she can relax her lower end. When utilizing the techniques on her legs, we notice that she “releases” her leg and gives into the relaxation and lets it stay fully extended.
