Unleash Your Animal’s Best Life!

Our animals provide us with love and comfort, make us laugh and even lower our blood pressure. At times they can also cause us distress, such as when they are ill, anxious, or aging. Like humans, animals are integrated beings, mind, body, emotion and spirit. However, an animal’s instincts are naturally much stronger than humans and they are highly sensitive to tensions in their body and subtle changes in their environment. These tensions impact the way your animal friend feels-affecting health, behavior, and their...

“I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING!”

Does your animal friend have behaviors that you think you’ll “just have to live with”? Just as with humans there are many factors that affect animal behaviors including diet, muscle tension, enviromental stress, and physical health. Have you ever tried to make a rational, logical decision when you are fearful or excited? Animals are often asked to behave well when they are ill, afraid or overexcited. Holistic behavior training takes all aspects of life into consideration including the species, breed, enviroment,...

    Lwood’s Story

    Hi, I’m Lwood, a 13+ year old lab/shepherd mix. The humans tell me that makes me more than 100 years old in their years. Hey, they didn’t need to tell me…..I know my body is old. That’s how and why I started working with my good friend, Amy DeLong. As often happens as we age, our bodies change and wear out in various places. For me, my back legs got weak and some of the muscles that controlled things like my digestion got weak too. I had trouble taking my daily walks, would stumble and fall, could not get...

    From Frantic to Focused

    Chester, my energetic, ADD, puppymill rescue Yorkie-Poo, loves the miracle of TTouch. It has changed his life and our life together. Before Amy, Chester greeted my gentlest touches with frantic mouthing and race away. It was so frustrating, not just because I couldn’t express my love through touch, but also giving him basic care, such as baths and putting on his leash, were all but impossible. After just 3 sessions and faithfully practicing what Amy so patiently taught me, Chester makes me laugh with glee and I chide...
