Professional Practitioner Training Programme

Aim:

Touch for Health Professional Practitioner Training aims to develop confident and knowledgeable body-based Kinesiologists capable of detecting and correcting imbalances in the individual energy systems of their clients so that well- being is enhanced in their lives.

The modular approach of the Advanced training encompasses all aspects of well- being (including structural, chemical, psychological/emotional and subtle-energy aspects), the emphasis being on the facilitation of self-awareness.

What is Touch For Health Kinesiology?

Touch for Health falls under the branch of alternative and complementary therapy known as kinesiology – systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body and how that stress can be decreased.

The Touch for Health model does not treat or diagnose symptoms, but works with the energy, lifestyle and aspirations of the client, offering a safe and effective way to maintain health, enhance well-being and upgrade performance. Touch for Health is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world. It is recognised and respected as a fundamental training for other kinesiology systems as well as a healing modality in its own right.

History

Dr George Goodheart & Dr John Thie

Touch for Health came from the fusion of knowledge and ideas created though the meeting, in the 1960’s, of Dr John Thie, a young chiropractor, with Dr George Goodheart, a chiropractor and applied kinesiologist.

Dr Goodheart had made the connection between certain muscles of the body and the Chinese energy pathways known as meridians. He was developing a system of healthcare for chiropractors and other health professionals, which married the energy work of Chinese Medicine with modern chiropractic practice, using manual muscle monitoring as the evaluation technique.

Dr Thie realised that a great many of the techniques could be safely used by everyone to improve posture, increase well-being and reduce physical and mental discomfort. He set about organising these techniques into a series of protocols which became the Touch for Health Synthesis, now taught in over 60 co

untries around the globe. Understanding the link between muscles and meridians allowed us to balance qi with our hands and restore harmony between yin and yang.

This Professional Practitioner Training Programme builds on the TFH synthesis, deepening knowledge and providing the opportunity to train as a fully qualified Kinesiologist. The Professional Practitioner Training Programme is recognised by the Kinesiology Federation UK and completion qualifies for Kinesiology Federation membership as KF Associate.

Learning with us

Learning on the Touch For Health Professional Practitioner Training is modular and you can go at your own pace. You will have already completed the TFH Synthesis and you may have studied elements of the TFH Consultant programme. (Please see Qualification Structure for further information)

Our Model

In touch for health we work within the self-responsibility educational model. Working in this way will mean that you will need to be actively engaged in your own personal and professional development in order to facilitate self- awareness in others.

Self-Responsibility

Definition: a process that provides a person with an opportunity to learn about and discover aspects of him/herself. “I discover myself.”

In opposition to: the therapeutic model where the practitioner divulges information, thoughts, ideas and feelings that he/she perceives about the person. “Someone tells me what I am.”
The active/main/central role: the person who comes to receive a balance and / or mentoring. 

The role of the practitioner is to accompany the person and facilitate the journey of self discovery.

TFH Kinesiology encourages proactive and timely consultations with qualified healthcare professionals to determine if a medical condition is present, and whether balancing the posture, emotions & energy is appropriate for the condition. For serious illness, injury, or continuing, worsening or severe symptoms, we always advise to seek the services of a medical doctor.
