Tony’s approach to teaching is amazing. It was a pleasure to learn in such a positive, relaxed environment. I left the course feeling extremely confident in my Touch For Health ability!‘
Tony, thank you so much for everything over the past few months.

I just recently completed my Touch for Health Synthesis.  I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and looked forward to each of the four weekends immensely.
Tony is a fantastic teacher, he was so interactive and open, who made learning fun and easy. There were plenty of laughs and we had such a wonderful group.
It was surprisingly easy to practice the muscle balances after just the first weekend – I felt I really achieved so much learning and hands on experience to have confidence in what I was doing.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable and massively educational experience, with tools to use in everyday life.  I find it fascinating that the possibilities are endless of where Touch for Health can take you!

What will I learn in Touch For Health?

To summarise you will learn;
  1. Manual muscle testing- which allows you to assess if a muscle is working correctly or not
  2. How specific muscles have a relationship to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system of health.
  3. How to apply techniques to balance physical, mental, emotional and nutritional stresses which show up via the muscle tests

Course Breakdown

The Touch For Health Synthesis is an amazing modality, which has already reached millions of people worldwide and is the forefront of complementary holistic therapy.

You will learn about the different energy systems that are in our bodies and specific muscles that are related to them. These systems help us to maintain balance and harmony within the body.
