There are 4 levels in the Touch For Health Synthesis. Each course teaches new techniques and integrates more specialized kinesiology skills for holistic balancing. Each course in the Touch For Health Synthesis is 16 CEU hours.
Touch For Health Kinesiology Level 1
Touch for Health 1 is a powerhouse of healing information taught in a holistic self-responsibility model. Students learn a system for balancing physical, emotional, energetic, and dietary stressors and how to use that system to achieve goals. Students are able to provide a holistic balance using the 14-muscle balance-as-you-go method.
Learn what Touch For Health is, precision muscle monitoring as a biofeedback tool, how to test and correct 14 muscles, how to diffuse emotional distress, daily energizers, the theory of acupuncture meridians, and goal balancing. Various touch reflexes and techniques are learned including neuro-lymphatic massage, neuro-vascular points, spinal reflex, tracing meridians, origin/insertion and other muscle-specific reflexes used to dramatically improve posture and correct imbalances in the meridian system.
Learn muscle tests and corrections for the 14 primary muscles and meridians:
Supraspinatus – Central Meridian
Teres Major – Governing Meridian
Pectoralis Major Clavicular – Stomach Meridian
Latissimus Dorsi – Spleen
Subscapularis – Heart
Quadriceps – Small Intestine
Peroneus – Bladder
Psoas (Oh the magnificent psoas!) – Kidney
Gluteus Medius – Circulation Sex/Pericardium
Teres Minor – Triple Warmer
Anterior Deltoid – Gallbladder
Pectoralis Major Sternal – Liver
Anterior Serratus – Lung
Fascia Lata – Large Intestine
THERE IS NO PRE-REQUISITE for TFH Level 1.
TFH Level 1 was designed to be suitable for the lay person who has no prior learning in muscles, anatomy, or Chinese acupuncture energy theory, though many massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and coaches find TFH a useful and integrative tool in their practice.
