Touch For Health (TFH) is the foundation course of kinesiology. It was developed by Dr John Thie in the 1970’s in America. From this base all other kinesiologies developed. This is true today as well. You may choose to do TFH and then go onto other schools of kinesiology, or you may choose to continue with your TFH studies. TFH is in the process of being developed internationally into a 2 year diploma. TFH is a series of 4 workshops taught over 8 days, usually over 4 weekends.
