DR. JOHN THIE D.C.
The Original Touch for Health Manual
This manual, published by Dr. John Thie in 1972 is, according to Matthew Thie, Dr. Thie’s first publication of the material which matured into Touch for Health as it is known today. It is a fascinating read, as the outline of Touch for Health as we know it is not readily present. The muscle tests are not arranged in meridian order, the acupressure holding points are used for strengthening a muscle, not tonifying or sedating a meridian, the spinal reflexes are not presented, and there are many other differences.
Touch for Health is often presented as Applied Kinesiology for everyone. However, it is really much more, blending methods to balance the soma and psyche in a self responsibility model. This manual is Dr. Thie’s first step on the evolutionary journey that culminates in the current edition of “TOUCH FOR HEALTH, THE COMPLETE EDITION“. Gaining insight into the nature of this journey is highly rewarding for me, and I highly recommend perusing this publication.
