In the late 1960’s, Dr. George Goodheart began sharing his Applied Kinesiology techniques, through his Goodheart Study Group Leaders (or the “Dirty Dozen” as they were affectionately nicknamed). In the early 1970’s, Dr. John Thie made Energy Kinesiology techniques available to lay people and non-physician health practitioners through his Touch for Health manual and training programs. Since then, this powerful and empowering work has spread throughout the world, and diversified into a variety of modalities, training programs, and clinical approaches. In some countries there is now government recognition and insurance coverage of these techniques. With the most recent publication of a translation of Touch for Health in Mainland China, the adoption of the energy model in the West has come full circle, with kinesiology instructors and practitioners now being trained in the East.
