Touch for Health Kinesiology


Touch for Health Kinesiology was developed by Dr John Thie. This non-invasive programme uses muscle testing to gain biofeedback from the body.

Through a range of simple corrections, we can balance the body’s energy to improve posture, relieve pain and tension as well as emotional stress, and stimulate the body's own healing ability.

Touch For Health Kinesiology (TFH) is the most widely used system of Kinesiology in the world. It is recognised and respected as a fundamental training for other Kinesiology systems as well as a healing modality in its own right.

TFH Kinesiology can be easily learned by anyone, with a little practice. Our courses are taught by certified Touch For Health Instructors, trained by the faculty of the International Kinesiology College (IKC).
