Touch for Health is used to restore energy flow through Chinese Medicine and muscle testing. As each meridian (energy line) has an energetic connection with an organ, gland or system, Touch for Health can through muscle testing, evaluate not only muscle balance but also meridian energy and body function. It has a psychological advantage too in that the feedback from muscle testing creates a positive belief in the process based on sensory experience. The Touch for Health 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. It can identify stresses and imbalances, find connections and prioritise these, thus helping to reduce stress and pain, and improve mental and physical performance.
An analogy might be to think of a kinesiologist as a body electrician going round all the circuits testing them to find out which are working and which are not.
Touch for Health includes setting a goal for the session and can give the client many self-help techniques to help take more responsibility for his or her own health and wellbeing. Most people have the potential to be healthier, happier or more fulfilled in their home or work life.
A muscle test involves the practitioner placing the client’s limb in a certain position in order to isolate the muscle to be tested. The practitioner applies light pressure while the client tries to match this pressure. The muscle will either lock in place or give way, providing the practitioner and the client with information. This is a test of neurological function and not of muscle strength.
