Touch For Health Kinesiology

Unlocking Natural Health and Vitality Through Kinesiology

What is Touch For Health?

Touch For Health Kinesiology is a system of natural health care which combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function. It applies a range of gentle yet effective techniques to enhance health, well-being and vitality.

History and Global Impact: It’s been taught Since 1973, Touch For Health has been taught in over 100 countries and has positively affected millions of people worldwide. In 1990, Dr. John Thie, D.C., the founder of TFH made the International Kinesiology College (IKC) the custodian for the Touch For Health Synthesis and its faculty the administrators for its teaching internationally.

Balancing with Meridians: Using muscle monitoring, Touch For Health Kinesiology addresses the structural, nutritional and emotional stresses common in our everyday life to create balance within the meridian system of the body.
