“I treasure the Touch for Health Synthesis. I see it as a candle lighting the way for others to improve their health and their lives…” – Dr. John Thie (Touch for Health Founder)


Touch For Health

Are you interested in improving your own or other peoples health? Would you like to be able to maintain optimal health for yourself or your friends and family?

Touch For Health is a phenomenal wellbeing toolkit which allows you to assess and balance all kinds of stress in the body. It is a natural health system that covers everything from physical pain to spiritual growth.

Touch for Health (TFH) uses manual muscle testing to assess the overall health of the person and applies simple and gentle healing techniques, including acupressure from Traditional Chinese Medicine, to improve vitality and maintain optimal health.

Dr. John Thie  created the TFH synthesis over 30 years ago. (Read more on John here) It is now taught in over 50 countries globally and is the most widely used system of Kinesiology in the world. It forms the foundation of the Diploma in Kinesiology in Ireland and gives the student 60 Internationally accredited kinesiology training hours recognised by the IKC, the International Kinesiolgy College, our governing body.

What can you use Touch for Health for?

Touch For Health Kinesiology training is the ultimate wellbeing toolkit! It’s easy to learn and allows you to help friends and family with all kinds of problems.

Lots of parents learn it is an amazing way to keep your children in optimal good health.

You can use it to balance stress at all level of the body and uncover the hidden causes of many health problems.

  • Quickly and easily improve mood by reducing stress.
  • Help someone with physical pain or posture issues
  • Prevent sickness by maintaining positive health
  • Accelerate healing and recovery
  • Determine which foods are good and not so good for a person
  • Improve concentration
  • Improve energy and sleep

What will I learn in Touch For Health?

Touch For Health begins with a simple and easy to learn 14 muscle balance which introduces ways to balance physical, emotional, mental and nutritional health.
Kids love it, and they respond really well to it. They always find the muscle testing part absolutely amazing, and so will you! The techniques can be used on anyone and a massage table is not required, as all of the work can be done standing.
You will be given a detailed manual which is packed full of useful information and instructions to help you do your work.
You will learn how to diffuse stress using acupressure points. You will also learn the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine and how to apply them to restore health and balance.
After the first day of training, you can go home and practice the techniques on friends and family.
I began my training in Kinesiology with this course (more on me here) about 10 years ago. I still refer to it regularly as it teaches the basic principles that every Kinesiologist globally will use.


The course runs over 4 weekends from Sept to December 2022. It includes 8 days of training with a total of 60 internationally accredited Kinesiology hours. It forms the basis of the Diploma in Kinesiology should you wish to proceed further at any stage.
