Touch for Health was created by John Thie in the 1970’s as a way of introducing muscle testing to as many people as possible. It is considered the foundation of Specialized Kinesiology. All of our TFH instructors are IKC (International Kinesiology College) certified.
Over the course of four levels, students learn how to use muscle testing to assess energy flow in the 14 meridians. This can improve posture, reduce pain and stress and allow people to function their best! Working with Touch for Health allows you to find balance for yourself and those you love. It can also be a first step in an amazing career.
In a Touch for Health™ session, muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. The concept of “muscle testing” becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, and injuries.
A Little bit of history…
Touch for Health™ (TFH) was originated by Dr. John Thie, DC, a chiropractor in Pasadena, California. Dr. Thie had studied with Dr. George Goodheart, DC, the developer of Applied Kinesiology.
Dr. Goodheart had taken the study of movement (kinesiology) and added to it corrections to strengthen muscles and improve function (practical application). His system was taught to chiropractors and other professionals.
Dr. John Thie realized that these methods were extremely useful, and also simple enough for anyone to learn. He developed TFH as a program for the lay person. He wrote the book: ‘Touch for Health™’, and began teaching courses.
These courses are standardized by the IKC and recognized around the world and are prerequisites for studying many modalities of Specialized Kinesiology.
