Kinesiology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that can be used with success to help virtually all types of problems. Kinesiology as we know it today, was originally developed by Dr. George Goodheart and fellow chiropractors in the 1960's in California. In 1970, Dr. John Thie extracted some Applied Kinesiology techniques and created Touch for Health. From the foundation of Dr. John Thies work, additional techniques were developed by other pioneers in the field, such as John Barton.

Today, Kinesiology is one of the most holistic of the complementary therapies available as it addresses the person from the emotional/mental, nutritional and structural levels. Kinesiology bridges Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and meridian theory with the science and art of western muscle testing, anantomy, physiology, emotional healing modalities and nutrition.

By utilizing muscle responses as a means of bio-feedback, Kinesiology is unmatched in its ability to detect imbalances in the body, prioritize these imbalances and discover the best way to stimulate the bodies natural healing processes. Muscle testing allows the therapist to access the vast innate intelligence of the body/mind system of the person being treated. Kinesiology always addresses the root cause of the problem.
