Matthew Thie teaching Touch for Health® Kinesiology Workshops

Call 213 482 4480 with questions or to register over the phone.

The TFH Weekend ONLINE* Workshop Series:
TFH Levels 1-4, Goal-Setting & Metaphor, and Proficiency Assessment

This 6-weekend, 125 hour training program will give you practical hands-on* experience in the TFH system of postural, energetic and mental/emotional balancing, culminating in the Proficiency weekend to confirm your practical and theoretical TFH skills (Proficiency Certificate from the International Kinesiology College- IKC).

For Online "Muscle Testing" we will be using a variety of Self-Noticing through the Range of Motion (SNoRMing), and Self-Applying Pressure in the Contracted Position (SnAP-CaP). With over 100 participants in 2020, this approach has proven Empowering, Easy to Learn, and Highly Effective for Energy Balancing and reinforcing Self-Responsibility.

*HANDS-ON Manual Muscle Test (MMT) Component will be offered as a follow-up in Los Angeles when the time arrives that scheduling is possible (or arrange with your local instructor)
