Kinesiology
Training Course

Touch for Health

Touch for Health Kinesiology was developed by John Thie, a Chiropractor and avid student of the energy systems of Chinese medicine. His mission was to provide everyone with practical methods to understand and balance their own energy. 

 

The practice uses muscle monitoring and focuses on energy pathways within the body called meridians. It recognises the link between emotional, physical and biochemical states of the body and is a true ‘holistic’ therapy. 

On the Touch For Health training course you will cover in-depth foundational training to enable you to practice Touch for Health on yourself, your friends and family and as a professional practitioner. 

Touch for Health Course

The Touch For Health Synthesis is taught across five weekend workshops and consists of four levels plus an integration and proficiency weekend. In between workshops you practice techniques on friends and family and share experiences at the next workshop. If you wish to become certified (and able to practice professionally), you can attend an additional single day assessment workshop.

Investment

£1,125 for five-weekend course (Levels1-4 plus proficiency).

On completion of the additional assessment workshop, you will also have the option to be paired with a mentor from within the Touch for Health community.

IMG_4621_edited_edited.jpg

I’m Amy, Holistic Life Coach, Kinesiologist and Touch for Health Instructor. I first discovered Kinesiology when a work colleague (back in my previous corporate life) was waxing lyrical about this amazing new therapy she’d found. I’ve always loved anything alternative-therapy-ish so I was keen to have a go! After one session I was hooked and within six months I was happier, more confident and was fitter than I’d ever been before. More importantly, though, I felt really good about myself. For the first time, I was starting to feel comfortable in my own skin and I’d begun to recognise, unpick and work through negative experiences and limiting beliefs that had been impacting me since childhood.

I wanted to help others with their own transformations and decided to train in Kinesiology. Seeing clients, alongside continuing with my full time job, I found my natural style combined new techniques learned in Kinesiology, with traditional coaching I used in my corporate role. I loved cherry picking the best of both and was seeing great results with my clients.

 

I was so passionate about sharing the techniques of Kinesiology I continued training to become a qualified Touch for Health Kinesiology instructor and became a registered instructor with the Kinesiology Federation, and here we are! One of my favourite parts of my business is teaching this course. I love seeing students discover the fascinating techniques and realise that it’s not magic or woo woo, it’s just energy. And actual science (just not the stuff they taught us in school)!  

It’s a great course. It changed my life and I’m sure you’ll absolutely love it.
