What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology has been called the art and science of muscle testing or muscle monitoring. The kinesiologist looks at the whole person in terms of their structure (physical), mental / emotional, and biochemical / nutrition. The kinesiologist uses his or her knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, counselling and nutrition as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts to ensure the whole person is balanced.
Millions of people have experienced kinesiology and gained physical and mental / emotion relief through simple techniques that are easily learned and applied.
What is Touch for Health?
Touch for Health falls under the branch of alternative and complementary therapy known as kinesiology - systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body and how that stress can be decreased.
The Touch for Health model does not treat or diagnose symptoms, but works with the energy, lifestyle and aspirations of the client, offering a safe and effective way to maintain health, enhance well-being and upgrade performance.
Touch for Health 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 it's own right.
