Touch for Health Kinesiology

Touch For Health Definition of Health : “In the TFH system, health is defined as our ability to feel fully alive and vital, regardless of whether we are “sick” or not. Health is not merely the absence of signs and symptoms, nor is it defined by the biostatistical parameters of normalcy. When we experience health, we fulfil the role of the healthy person. We work towards the realisation of goals and a sense of fulfilling our mission in life with some happiness.”

Dr John F. Thie, the founder of the Touch for Health (TFH) system, developed this safe and effective natural healing system from a combination of the traditional ancient Chinese medicine system and aspects of Dr Goodheart’s method of Applied Kinesiology. Touch for Health uses muscle testing as a biofeedback mechanism, a tool for working with the connection between mind and body, using the electromagnetic energy system known as the “meridians” (or acupressure vessels).
Touch for Health is complementary to orthodox healthcare, encouraging prevention and self-care, including proactive and timely consultation with physicians and other healthcare experts. The idea is that there is a life force that, when in balance and flowing, naturally supports wellness. In this model, discomfort, pain, illness and disease are seen as symptoms of imbalance in the vital energy or life force of the person.

The focus is on balancing the whole system rather than trying to diagnose the cause of the symptom. The muscles are linked to certain organ systems, including the vascular, lymph, and the acupuncture meridians. When, a particular muscle is balanced, it may benefit the related organ or system. The energy flow to the muscles is improved, resulting in improved posture and improved functioning of the whole system. Blood flow, lymph flow, organ function, hormonal balance, mood, posture and attitude are all effected because they are intricately connected.
