Touch for Health® Course

Touch For Health®workshop will show you a different, more holistic and natural approach to health, vitally and happiness … and it can change your life forever!

This is an internationally recognized kinesiology workshop. It was founded in America in 1970 by Dr John Thie and is currently taught in many languages in over 100 countries around the world.  

Anyone can enroll and learn the techniques - no matter their age, education or experience!  This workshop aims at educating people how to take good care of their health and vitality in a very natural holistic way as well as to be able to assist their family, friends and others.

Touch for Health® (TFH) is a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine principles like those used in acupuncture/acupressure and recent Western developments in wellness and preventive health care. TFH explores the link between certain muscles with specific organ systems, particular energy meridians, and parts of the lymphatic and vascular systems. TFH aims at balancing different aspects of your life  which remarkably improves your health increasing energy, vitality and zest for life.

As everything is energy and vibration, the uninterrupted movement of our life-energy (or chi) is of primary importance for vibrant health and wellness. When our life-energy is blocked and stagnant, we experience uneasiness which doctors call dis-ease. Our bodies give us a lot of signs long before we call it dis-ease. We can learn how to notice these signs and instead of fearing or ignoring them, work with the nature and stay vibrant, healthy and joyous. 

This is an excellent course for moms and housewives, teachers, massage therapists, fitness instructors, natural health practitioners, and everyone who wants to take active responsibility for their health and wellness. TFH is also a very good foundation for those who wish to study kinesiology professionally.


With the skills you learn in Touch For Health you will be able to:

·         Use simple but powerful techniques on yourself and others to reduce stress, pain and tension which will improve posture and increase energy and vitality  

·         Perform deep and profound energy balances around specific goals on yourself, your family and friends. This will do wonders to improve your/their self-esteem and your/their relationships with self and others.

·         Assist those with dyslexia and learning difficulties to achieve better concentration, memory, brain function, co-ordination and performance at work, school and sport (great for helping kids!)

·         Test for food sensitivities. Help people eliminate phobias and stress, balance for past traumas and anxiety about future events

·         And much more…
