About This Book:
Touch For Health is a powerful healing method for activating the human body. TFH is a very effective system for stress and pain reduction. TFH uses muscle testing to determine imbalances in the body's acupuncture system. Muscle testing is both an art and a science. It is a skill that takes practice to refine and perfect. 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 gentle touch techniques can be used to release energy blockages and allow the body’s innate healing processes to heal itself.
Kinesiology is effective on dealing with a variety of health conditions. Both chronic and acute conditions have responded to these natural methods. Physical pain such as headaches, backaches, strains, sprains, menstrual cramps, nausea, TMJ, toothaches, and repetitive strain injuries are a few of the conditions that have been helped quite effectively. Conditions such as insomnia and jet lag respond quite well to this approach. Mental performance can be dramatically improved as these techniques enhance neurological functioning. It is commonplace to see people with reading difficulties be helped in a matter of minutes once key reflex techniques are taught to them. Kinesiology is also very effective in releasing fears, phobias, unconscious sabotage programs and emotional trauma.
The book may be described as a users guide or operating system for communicating directly with the human body. It was written by Dr. John Thie in 1973. It is based directly on the Applied Kinesiology work of Dr. Goodheart as well as on Dr. Thie's own experience while working with patients, taking what worked best for him.

Touch for Health can help anyone, from physical to emotional. A must-have resource for anyone who wants an alternative to, or compliment Western medicine. This book is for the novice to the experienced, and a great reminder of how our emotions regulate our physical health.
