Kinesiology training for professionals and lay people
No previous experience or qualifications required
The Touch for Health Synthesis comprises four three-day workshops. Each level is certified by the International Kinesiology College (IKC) and there is no obligation to complete all of the levels. The training is standardized througout the UK, and workshops can be taken at any time with any TFH trainer. IKC Certificate of Proficiency in Touch for Health is achieved by taking a final two-day review, practice and assessment workshop.
TFH is a safe system of Energy Kinesiology
Touch for Health has been safely used since 1973 in over 100 countries and the Touch for Health manuals have been translated into many languages. We rely on the individual being healthy enough to determine for herself if TFH is beneficial and whether she needs to seek expert care. For serious illness, injury, or continuing, worsening or severe symptoms, always seek the services of a health care professional.
Touch for Health is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world. Millions of people have experienced and benefited from TFH. It is recognized and respected as a fundamental training for other kinesiology systems as well as a healing modality in its own right – and a key source for the emergence of Specialized Kinesiology, Energy Kinesiology and even Energy Psychology.
Touch For Health Kinesiology can be learned by anyone (with a little practice!), without any prior knowledge of muscles, physiology, vital energy, meridians, etc. Practical and hands-on, the Touch for Health workshops are facilitated in over 60 countries by certified Touch for Health Instructors, trained by the Faculty of the International Kinesiology College (IKC).
In Touch For Health we use muscle testing as a method of biofeedback to identify imbalances in the body's energy system. Using a holistic approach we rebalance the body's energies and activate the body's intrinsic healing process so that the body can better heal itself, creating that sense of effortless effort, and being in the flow of life.
Touch for Health is a synthesis of ancient knowledge of the Chinese acupuncture meridians and techniques derived from chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, and even person-centered counselling. It includes acupressure, touch reflexes, meridian tracing, nutrition, and other techniques, to balance the body’s energies while focusing on meaningful, personal goals.
Touch For Health Kinesiology has its roots in the work of chiropractor George Goodheart. Dr Goodheart developed a system called Applied Kinesiology which he shared with physicians who are licensed to diagnose (medical doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, dentists, etc.) and assistants under their supervision.
John Thie, D.C., one of the early promoters of Goodheart’s work and the founding chairman of Goodheart’s International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK) had the vision of sharing this information with the wider population so they could learn to help themselves. Dr Thie released the book Touch for Health in 1973, and developed the Touch for Health training programme which has been administered by the IKC since 1990. TFH was designed to empower every person to become active in the creation, maintenance and restoring of their own health and wellbeing, and the health and wellbeing of others.
