Kinesiology Balance/Muscle Testing - Kinesiology is the language of the body. It has been likened unto a biofeedback system. Some call it muscle monitoring. When muscles have been monitored correctly, we are able to gain a wealth of information about the internal condition of our very complex bodies. When we have an energy imbalance, our muscles will not give a strong signal and hold up. Each of our body organs has a corresponding muscle that relates to that particular organ. In Touch For Health we utilize a combination of various techniques (acupressure, spinal, neurolympthatic, neurovascular, and cranial reflexes) to promote balance in the body, energy system including the emotions. The result of being balanced on all these levels puts us at an advantage. We will have more energy, clearer thinking, calmer emotions, less physical pain and a stronger immune system when we are balanced.
Reiki Master - Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
