   Testimonial:
  BODY WRAPS HELP TO SETTLE DOGS AT THE VET
Testimonial By: Debbie Conradie       

Body Wrap – by Debbie Conradie, Cape Town Practitioner

What a coincidence that the January and, I believe, the February newsletter will have info on the use and application of the body wrap. I work for a vet and a few days ago had a wonderful opportunity to use one and show my vet how effective TTouch can be.
 
I arrived at work and was told by my vet that he had got no sleep that night because the German Short-haired Pointer had barked and whined all night long in the hospital. Several shots of A.C.P during the night had only brought temporary relief. I set to work on the Pointer. Luckily I had no interruptions and was able to spend 10 minutes doing mouth work and bodywork on him plus a bit of leading out in the courtyard. Then I put one of my wraps on his body and a mouth wrap on his face. I left him to attend to my duties and returned to do more body and mouth work when I had the chance. At first he kept pulling the mouth wrap off, but eventually he left it on. Silence! No whining! Only one chilled dog lying passed out on the back step of the hospital. My vet couldn’t believe it! He said I should teach him what to do so he doesn’t have to use so much A.C.P next time.
 
Some time later a noisy Dachshund arrived who wouldn’t stop barking in his cage, especially when the free ranging Pointer came to stare at him with those Pointer eyes. (I’m sure Eugenie knows what I talking about) So, out came the Dachshund, on went the body and mouth wrap, for which he received very little preparation because I was now busy, and back he went into his cage. Silence! The boys were quiet. Peace reigned in the hospital. It was amazing and my vet was very impressed. Now I put wraps on any dog who shows fear, tension and anxiety about being in a cage in the hospital. I love putting TTouch to work in my job. Hope this story inspires you all to use this wonderful work where you can.

Debbie Conradie.
