Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Touch for Health™ was developed in the United States through the collaboration of a Chiropractor and an Applied Kinesiologist. It’s a system of balancing posture and energy to relieve stress, aches and pains so you can feel and function better, be more effective and enjoy your life!
In a Touch for Health™ session muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. Muscle testing is a very effective tool for detecting and correcting these imbalances. Re-balancing the energy creates a beneficial effect, promotes healing, and can be safely used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques.
The Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, who champion professional excellence to support the growth of natural health and wellness, lists Touch for Health as a recognized discipline. Read their information here.
