Touch For Health

What is Touch for Health Kinesiology?

Touch for Health uses the muscles as a biofeedback mechanism and works with the connection between the body, mind and emotions by using the acupuncture meridians or electromagnetic energy system. It helps to enhance people’s own recuperative powers and addresses structural, nutritional and emotional stresses in our everyday life.
