Health can be a confusing topic. There is a lot of information out there and most of it is contradictory. We want to provide you with the information you need so you can make the choice that is best for you.

How does muscle testing work?

Muscle testing uses specific muscles to monitor or observe the energy moving through the body. When the body is in balance, energy is moving properly throughout. When there is an imbalance, it pops the circuit and changes the energy flow. You can tell if there is a problem with the electricity in your house if you flip the switch in the kitchen and the lights stay off. Similarly, you can tell if there is a problem with the body’s electricity if there is a difficulty maintaining certain muscle positions.

Every person, place, food, vitamin, event, memory etc. that you can think of affects electrical flow, so we can use your muscles to see whether these aspects of your life are supporting you, or whether they are causing stress. Sometimes parts of your life that are good for you can cause stress: think of a wedding, which is a happy event, but is ranked as one of the most stressful situations you’ll ever be in! Once we figure out where the stress is in your life, we can help you deal with it more efficiently so you don’t have negative symptoms.

What can I expect after a session?

A miraculous transformation curing all of your problems! No, not really.

Most health conditions did not develop overnight; they are years in the making. It takes awhile for these to resolve. That being said, many start noticing changes in their body after their first session. It can take a few weeks for the effects of a session to become fully visible, especially if someone needs to use supplements, as improvements might not be seen until the right amount of the supplement in question has made its way into the system. How many sessions one needs and how far apart they should be varies depending on the person and the health issues they are working with.

What is Touch for Health?

Touch for Health is a system of specialized kinesiology. The first Touch for Health manual was published in 1973 by John Thie who wanted to develop a system that could be used by laymen to improve their health and the health of friends and family. It combines Eastern and Western theories nicely using specific muscles tests as indicators for how energy is moving with the meridians (the same energy conduits that are accessed through acupuncture, acupressure and shiatsu). It is a simple and powerful tool for balancing energy, reducing pain, facilitating muscles and reducing emotional stress.
