Touch for Health-en

Touch for Health 

Touch for Health is a holistic system of health care available to people with no medical knowledge. Its intention is to provide a better understanding of the factors that create stress, tension and pain in our bodies. Founded in 1973 by the American Dr John Thie, it combines occidental chiropractic techniques and traditional Chinese acupuncture to maintain postural and energetic equilibrium. Easy to learn and to use, it teaches simple, safe and effective methods that enhance the body’s vitality and recuperative powers.

Its core teaching is based on the premise that the chemical, structural and emotional aspects of a person are not three separate entities and that any imbalance within this triangle will have an impact on a person’s muscle tone. Muscles reveal the interaction between the body and the mind. They exteriorize what happens inside us for all to see. They provide a biofeedback about a person’s emotional, postural or nutritional imbalances. That’s why 14-42 muscle tests are at the centre of the Touch for Health method.

Workshop participants will learn to communicate with the body through muscles and discover how to mobilize blocked energy through a variety of techniques, including acupressure on meridian points, movement, neurolymphatic massage points for pain relief and emotional stress release. These techniques will allow you to assist others to understand and take responsibility for their health and well-being.

I developed a simple program of assessing and balancing posture and subtle energies through dialogue, muscle testing and touch reflexes that can be used without any previous training. I wanted to help people to help themselves and to be more aware of their bodies and their miraculous natural capacity to regenerate, adapt and create new experiences and joy.’ Dr John Thie, founder of Touch for Health
