Kinesiology: Self Care is the New Health Care

by Arlene Green

If you knew you could save yourself unnecessary suffering and thousands of dollars, would you be interested to know how? And more importantly, would you take the time to do so?

When it comes to health care there is a lot we as individuals can do to take greater responsibility for our own health that can bring about true health care reform. The daily choices we make are a large part of the solution to our long-term health care needs both personally and as a society.

There are several simple steps that everyone can choose to integrate into their lives that can significantly improve their health, well-being and longevity.

1. Eat more natural; when possible, organically grown foods.

2. Get optimal sleep.

3. Drink good quality water daily.

4. Get sufficient daily exercise.

5. Develop a support system.

6. Find meaningful activities – be of service.

7.Learn preventative health care approaches and techniques to address stress issues proactively and manage pain naturally.

While many of the above actions may be familiar, the last item may be less clear on how to implement. Where does one begin to find effective, skills sets to use to reduce stress and pain and enhance one’s overall health and well-being?

Some of the more popular approaches to natural stress reduction are meditation, massage, Tai Chi and yoga. Gaining popularity is Energy Medicine including EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or ‘Tapping’), Energy Psychology and Eden Energy Medicine.

One of the first energy based, holistic modalities specifically geared for the layperson was Touch for Health Kinesiology. Touch for Health (TFH), developed in 1973 by Dr. John Thie, D.C., is an engaging synthesis of ancient principles from acupuncture, blended with modern western discoveries. It teaches a step-by-step system to balance the body’s meridian system and muscles through gentle touch techniques that can be learned by anyone. Simple yet powerful, TFH provides a method to access the body’s wisdom and stimulate its intrinsic healing capacity. TFH does not treat, prescribe or diagnose for any diseases but rather gives the person skills to effectively manage their stress and pain. It integrates a wide variety of techniques addressing healing on the physical, mental, emotional and nutritional levels. Touch For Health techniques give people a method at their fingertips to reduce stress and enhance daily performance. Classes are fun and interactive. People using these skills within their families find that their overall health care costs drop significantly as they have a natural and effective alternative to popping pills. With Touch For Health, anyone can learn how to take charge of their health and become more self reliant.

Two of the leading instructors in the field of Touch for Health, Arlene and Larry Green, will be coming to the Philadelphia/Delaware area in August and September. Classes are open to anyone. CEs are available to nurses, massage therapists, acupuncturists and athletic trainers. Visit www.USKinesiology.com for more information.
