Touch for Health book cover

Dawn is a TFH Practitioner

Touch for Health is a synthesis of ancient knowledge of the Chinese acupuncture meridians and techniques. It is derived from chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, and even person-cantered counselling.

It involves acupressure, a variety of touch reflexes, meridian tracing, nutrition and a variety of mind-body techniques for balancing the subtle energies, while focusing on meaningful, personal goals.

It falls under the branch of alternative and complementary therapy known as kinesiology—systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body, and how that stress can be decreased.
