Touch for Health is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world.


What are Meridians?

 

The meridians can be viewed as electrical circuits which connect the superficial acupuncture points to deeper organ structures.  It is essential for the health and well-being of the organism that there be sufficient energy in these circuits and that they all be balanced with respect to one another. There is a characteristic rhymical flow demonstrated by the ch'i energy as it passes through the twelve meridians which supply energy to the internal organs.  This cyclic energy flow reflects innate biological rhythms and cycles of a subtle energetic nature.  These well-defined cycles, which describe the flow of energy within the body, are a reflection of the cyclic energy interaction between the five eathly elements (as viewed by Chinese philosophy).  The Five Element Theory is a primary relationship in the Chinese system.  It relates all energy and substance to one fo the five elements: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood.

What is Touch for Health?

 

Touch for Health Kinesiology was developed early in the evolution for Applied Kinesiology.  TFH is a clear system of utilizing the postural and energetic balancing techniques of Applied Kinesiology in a holistic, non-diagnostic model of Wellness and health maintenance.  Touch for Health makes available powerful yet safe tools, so that people without biomedical training may help each other feel better within a framework of self-responsibility

The TFH approach is to become aware of even subtle symptoms that may affect the whole system.  The focus is on balancing the whole system rather than trying to diagnose the cause of the symptom.  What we think about, what we take into our hearts and minds and what we put into our bodies, affects the whole person.

Touch for Health falls under the branch of alternative and complementary therapy known as kinesiology - systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body and how that stress can be decreased. The Touch for Health model does not treat or diagnose symptoms, but works with the energy, lifestyle and aspirations of the client, offering a safe and effective way to maintain health, enhance well-being and upgrade performance. It is recognised and respected as a fundamental training for other kinesiology systems as well as a healing modality in it's own right.
