Touch for Health Kinesiology is an holistic therapy that uses 'muscle strength' to assess balance within the body's energy system by placing the body (usually limbs) into positions that isolate specific muscles which are then put under gentle pressure. The ancient practice of traditional Chinese medicine is based on maintaining the flow of universal energy (Qi) through channels, or meridians, circulating throughout the body, but travelling through major organs. The meridian is often named after the major organ through which it flows, i.e., Stomach meridian, Liver meridians, etc.
The developers of Touch for Health learned through trial and error that the universal energy (Qi) also flowed through and affected specific muscles which, when isolated, will either easily be able to resist the pressure or will not and will give way. This muscle reaction provides information relating to imbalances in various systems of the body and the procedures necessary to balance and correct them.
