IMG_5837Touch for Health (TfH) was developed in the 1960s by Dr John Thie.

Touch for Health (TfH) blends the traditions from the East and the West by merging Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Western influence of Chiropractic to assess energy and the body’s function with a range of techniques below to improve wellbeing and energy levels.

It is the most widely known branch of kinesiology in the world. It is recognised and respected as foundation training for other kinesiology systems, as well as a healing modality in its own right.

As a result this is a course that is suitable for both the lay person, who wishes to improve their own health or that of those around them.

It is also suitable for the health professional that is looking for an extra dynamic to add to their work, enabling them to make it unique and tailor it for the client’s specific needs.

The training for Level 1 can be used as a standalone for both the professional and the layperson alike. If you wish the student can then continue their training up to level 4 completing the Touch for Health (TfH) Synthesis. Touch for Health can be learnt at any age in the picture to the right Mia is giving at balance at 9 years old.


There is then an option to be assessed and receive professional accreditation which enables you to have an exciting new career, or to deepen your current work as a health professional.
