Touch for Health Level 1 is open to all!

Level 1 is suitable for the lay person who has no prior knowledge about muscles/anatomy/posture or Chinese (acupuncture) energy theory. Many massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, therapists, coaches, etc. find TFH useful in their practice, and for client education. Most energetic kinesiologists learn TFH in their training, although Kinesiology in the university setting (body mechanics/sports training) may not include any manual muscle testing, and most likely makes no reference to touch reflexes to balance the muscles.

I continue to use these skills frequently.
