TOUCH FOR HEALTH
The required Kinesiology foundation training for professional membership.
Developed by Dr. John Thie and now managed by The International Kinesiology College
Touch For Health comprises a comprehensive synthesis of Kinesiology techniques and theory. It gives a good understanding of the physical, structural, emotional, nutritional and energetic aspects of the individual and through the triangle of health, the inter-relationship between those aspects.
It merges knowledge from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Western understanding of Anatomy and Physiology, in particular from the Chiropractic field.
On completion of the Touch For Health training and TFH Proficiency assessment, the student will have many skills and great confidence to work with and help family and friends easily and effectively. Touch for Health has widespread international recognition and accreditation. It is a pre-requisite for most of the other Kinesiology courses available world-wide.
The International Kinesiology College, based in Australia, is the body responsible for managing the Touch For Health Synthesis content and standards of training. It certifies instructors and students world-wide.
A list of currently registered instructors, including those based in Ireland, is available at www.IKC-info.org, which also has a "Find a Class" section and a fulll list of registered instructors.

Attuning to Full Potential uses vibrational icons to raise consciousness by activating the dormant codes within your DNA, therefore allowing the process of transformation to begin. The AFP symbols help you to reactivate your embedded knowledge by attuning to it, finding the right wave length to access you own potential, in resonance to the divine field The body at all levels chooses the best path forward. The vibrational AFP icons are like a menu to release blockages from and find a new state of balance towards your full potential.
