 Touch for Health Kinesiology

     In the 1960's a Detroit Chiropractor, Dr. Goodheart, began combining acupuncture theory with a variety of western discoveries that involved touch reflexes and muscle testing. He discovered that there was a relationship not only between meridians and major organs but also muscles.  He called his system Applied Kinesiology. Today it is taught exclusively to M.D.'s and Chiropractors. 

     One of Dr. Goodheart's earliest students, Dr. John Thie, saw the potential of Goodheart's system, and developed a simpler system for lay people. He called it Touch For Health (TFH).  Dr. Thie's goal was to empower anyone interested in self care to be able to use these simple techniques to help themselves, their family and friends. 

     TFH is a very effective system for stress and pain reduction. It uses muscle testing to determine imbalances in the body's energy system. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms and does not diagnose, treat or prescribe named diseases. Through manual muscle testing, kinesiologists can identify the exact nature of blockages in the energy flow. Muscle testing allows one to identify stressors to the body/mind through accessing the body's wisdom with a kind of body biofeedback. Once imbalances are identified then a variety of techniques can be used to release energy blockages and allow the body to heal itself through its innate healing processes.
