Touch For Health
Touch For Health (TFH) Is a biofeedback system based in Traditional Chinese Medicine related to natural flow of energy throughout the body along meridians.
This is often called “Energy Kinesiology.”
TFH utilizes gentle muscle testing to signal areas of energy flow and identify where there are blockages in the flow. Balancing the energy is then done with various simple corrections through gentle techniques. These may include use of acupressure, neuro-lymphatic or neuro-vascular release, and other methods to restore the body’s energy flow to optimal efficiency. Often TFH also involves a goal or intention as part of the process.
