Kinesiology - Touch For Health

WHAT is Touch for Health® Kinesiology (TFHK)?

Touch for Health® Kinesiology (TFHK) is a system of balancing posture, emotions and energy for greater comfort, vitality, and enjoyment of your life. It uses synthesis of ancient knowledge of the Chinese acupuncture meridians and techniques derived from chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, and even person-cantered counselling, including acupressure, a variety of touch reflexes, meridian tracing, nutrition and a variety of mind-body techniques for balancing the subtle energies while focusing on meaningful, personal goals.

HOW does it work?

We use Muscle testing as a way of “communicating” with your body and to receive information about what the body needs. It shows us where “energy” blockages are as well as the most appropriate corrections required (these could be physical (eg: spinal adjustments), chemical (Nutrition addition and or removal eg: Bach Flowers, Cell Salts, Vitamins and Minerals), and Emotional blockages).

How reliable is it?

As with most things related to alternative healthcare robust scientific studies are hard to come by due to the nature of how healthcare research is funded however below are a few published studies on the reliability of muscle testing in the context of Kinesiology. Most importantly below are reviews from some of our patients diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (* there is no claim here that Kinesiology “cures” Fybromialgia however the patients are clear on what impact it had on their health and well-being):

Touch for Health’s popularity is due to its simplicity, its effectiveness, and its fast yet profound results to:

  • Improvement in general health
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Removes blocks, barriers and emotional triggers
  • More confidence and personal motivation
  • Improved posture and relief from physical pain and tension
  • Stress relief and day to day stress management strategies
  • Assistance to change attitudes, set and achieve personal goals
  • Enhanced brain function and therefore improved co-ordination, life, work and sports performance
  • Manage emotional stress


Conclusion -The applied kinesiology muscle strength test, which has great clinical feasibility, showed good accuracy in diagnosing sacroiliac joint dysfunction and greater discriminatory power for the existing dysfunction in comparison to other tests.”
