Touch For Health

TFH Synthesis

Touch For Health is a powerful healing method for activating and 'switching on' the human body. It is designed to release pain and stress naturally using simple muscle testing feedback techniques to identify the sources of stress which lead to chronic pains, illness, mental fogginess and other related facets of diseases. Touch For Health will help hone in on key stressors and quickly helps one to identify the most effective means of correcting the imbalance. It may be described as a users guide or operating system for communicating directly with the human body. Touch For Health was written by Dr. John Thie and published in 1973. It is based directly on the Applied Kinesiology work of Dr. Goodheart as well as on Dr. Thie's own experience while working with patients, taking what worked best for him and incorporating it into his book.

Touch For Health has been taught at Universities and Colleges, being integrated into holistic heath programs. It has spawned a whole generation of new Kinesiology modalities and specializations but has always been recognized and respected as both a pioneering work and a solid foundation for any study in Kinesiology. This is not to say that it is not complete onto it's own. On the contrary, not only is it a complete system but it has proven to be a dynamic system that is vast in it's applications. Touch For Health is taught in four levels, each level building on the skills learned in the previous one.

Touch for Health brings the body in to harmonious balance by restoring natural energy through a combination of the age old science of accupressure and modern principals of physiology and biochemistry.

You will learn to switch on your muscles for optimum health, brain/body integration and often the release of chronic pain.
This class is of special importance to anyone wanting to enhance sports or physical performance. You and your family are welcome.
