Among the very valuable tools TTouch offers us are hair slides. As we know, the hair is a part of the peripheral sensory system which means that hair slides can have a direct effect on the nervous system. The relaxing efect of hair slides is true both for the animal who is receiving them and the person who is doing the work. In fact it is a little like doing a short meditation.

The technique could not be simpler. Taking a lock of hair in one hand, the  fingers slide from the root to the tip of the hair. This is repeated all along the body. Where there are hot spots or other sensitive areas we can work more there.

Another option is to do a TTouch circle and a quarter moving the skin while holding the lock of hair before doing the hair slide.

Most animals find this work very effective. They relax and often fall asleep.
