Is anyone else trying to learn the t-touch method? i am trying to do it right to help Mary every night. i am going to see if it makes a difference..she is getting very stiff and getting up off the floor is harder and harder for her. I try to keep her off the floor as much as possible but i find her there more and more. I think it hurts to much to get up on the sofa so she just isn't trying. She never was on the floor before. When i see her there i make her get up and help her up onto a cushion. When we go to the dog park now she is hurting before we get back..and that is with the arthritis med as well. She is 12 and if you look at her pics in my gallery u can see that up until now she has been very active. In the last two months i have seen an increase of aging..a fast one. I know in my heart that 14 is as long as she will be with me and have any quality of life. I am trying to make that as possible as i can. She seems to get relief from long soaks in a hot tub too. I can't afford acupuncture...if there is any other form of massage that anyone else knows about that would help would you please let me know.
