What to Expect



When Dr. John Thie retired from 30 years of chiropractic practice, he designed what he felt was the ideal setting for working with clients; a retreat in which each client receives several balances over several days, and observes others being balanced, as well as learning and practicing the techniques that they experience and observe.

Matthew Thie continues in this tradition, balancing each participant for their own personal issues and goals, whether they be physical, energetic, mental/emotional, spiritual, etc.  It is recommended that each participant bring 3-5 life issues that they would like to explore and balance during the retreat.  The IKC, TFH 1-4 curriculum will be covered, with opportunities to practice with other participants, primarily in the evenings.


Partly to accommodate people traveling from every part of the world and partly to offer an in-depth immersion into the system, the 7-day workshop in Malibu is very INTENSIVE, incorporating 60 hours of training into 7 days, including morning, afternoon, and evening (independent) practice sessions.  This allows the avid student to complete the 4 Levels in 7 consecutive days of Workshops.


The private retreat is located on a hilltop in Malibu, California surrounded by gardens and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Private room (sharing bathroom with one other participant) and meals are included in the price of the workshop from Monday through Sunday (beginning with lunch on day one to lunch on the last day), allowing a complete immersion in the TFH system, and time for quiet contemplation, away from the everyday world. There is no television or internet in the basic "monk's quarters" style of rooms, cell phone reception is limited, there is WIFI in the lobby.


Day 1: check-in at 10am, class will begin at 10:30am and end at 6pm (you may arrive at the retreat center earlier but will not be able to check until 10am)

Days 2-6: Class time 9am-6pm (with evening practice sessions after dinner)

Day 7: Class time 9am (breakfast, check out, lunch) we will conclude at 2pm



Participants are responsible for arranging their own travel and transfers, we will be happy to assist with information as needed.

 It is not recommended that any excursions from the Retreat be planned during the workshop days.

What People are Saying

L.N. THROSSELL, Perth, Australia

“The TFH training at the Serra Retreat in Malibu was fabulous! The quiet, relaxed and spiritually nurturing environment was a bonus on top of the interaction with other participants from all over the world lead by an expert instructor, Matthew. I have very fond memories of my time there and was very glad I made the commitment to attend all the way from Western Australia, a journey of more than 20 hours in the air. Thank you Matthew.”


“Touch for Health intensive retreat was a great experience! It was so fun to learn so much in such a short time and to be able to cement what we learned during the day into evening practice with the other students. Matthew is a wonderful teacher and very patient while we learned the skills. He did a great job with making sure we understood the material. The location was beautiful as well and the hosts were super nice.”


“It was a life changing experience in which I learned new ways of using Touch for Health for myself as well as others.”


“The TFH Clinical Intensive was Wonderful! Unlike anything I have experienced!”

EDITH, Poulin, Quebec

“I had entered the Intensive with great curiosity and excitement, but definitely with a sizeable dose of apprehension; I felt unsure I could manage the pace and leave here with enough integration of the four levels offered in seven days. Sure enough, I saw each participant go from Zero to Hero under Matthew’s generous guidance and benevolent ways. I am now heading home with the confidence that I not only understand TFH, but I am now equipped to support the expansion of my clients and family members. I hadn’t suspected this experience could be this transformative! In turn, I saw my peers beaming and being brought to tears of joyand disbelief after a TFH balance. An honour that I will go on cherishing.”
