Kinesiology

Touch For Health is a form of kinesiology that restores the body to its natural state of health. Developed in the early 1970's by Dr John Thie, Touch For Health is internationally recognised as the fundamental training concepts for kinesiology.

Touch for Health/Kinesiology is a very powerful tool that combines non-invasive muscle monitoring and feedback system with traditional theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine to evaluate energy (meridian flow) and body function. This helps to identify imbalances in the body's structural, chemical and emotional energy to establish the body's priority healing needs. Kinesiology's premise is that the body has an innate healing energy and is always repairing and caring for itself, but sometimes it needs to be helped along to achieve this care. Kinesiology does not treat or diagnose conditions. It is concerned with the imbalances in the body's energy. Some areas used for relief are: injury and emotional trauma, unresolved stress, fatigue and tiredness.

Ultimately, Kinesiology relies upon the muscle feedback system that measures how the nervous system controls its muscle functions and the channels of the brain and body. In this way, it helps the body into a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by "balancing" its energies. It is thought that all stress, imbalances and blockages in the nervous system can be detected by testing the tension in certain muscles.
