Note: When using Kinesiology it is possible to carry out a “surrogate balance” where the kinesiologist can muscle test a substitute person or surrogate in place of the client. This is useful if, for any reason, the client cannot be muscle tested. Although the kinesiology tests are carried out using a surrogate, the correction techniques are carried out on the client themselves.

Touch for Health Kinesiology Balance
I used the caregiver as a surrogate for the muscle testing process. The client was wearing a very large heavy watch. We started by testing the watch which tested as negatively affecting the client. I also tested the cell phone that hung by a chord around his neck and a heavy metal chain he was wearing with similar results.
We then carried out a Touch for Health Kinesiology assessment of the 14 acupuncture meridians, and used Touch for Health techniques to balance the client.
After one month of weekly treatments the results were astounding.
After one Touch for Health balance he had no headache, no tremor and the posture was much improved. i.e. feet closer together, body had less of a lean, head almost upright. His face was transformed by a smile.
After the second and third Touch for Health treatments, I found him much more passive. He still had a short attention span, but this was much longer than the first visit. The headaches were not as bad and not as frequent, his tremor gone except when he had drunk a lot of coffee. His posture was much improved.
His feet were straighter and his stance closer to normal. He did still have a bit of a lean and rolling walk. He no longer wore the watch, cell phone or chain. He was working on not having coffee after lunch time. His sleeping was improved. Caregiver said he had only got up once during the night. He has had no violent outbursts and has been cooperative to the staff.
The big step is that after his second visit to me he did The Wobble Board for the first time at his Brain Injury Trust. This is something that he has never managed to do and was a real frustration for him. A Wobble Board is effective for improving the sense of proprioception, which is strongly linked to balance.
After one month of weekly balances: The difference at the fourth visit was astounding. He was standing upright with his feet shoulder width apart with one foot pointing forward, the other still pointing slightly outward. Now that he is upright, I can see his shoulders have a bad twist and uneven height. He stood still with no sign of tremor, that is he didn’t wobble or shake. He sat still during the balance, did not fiddle and was co-operative. His one big challenge was the eye positions. He cannot look in several of the positions. He started the session talking incessantly and repeatedly as normal but by the end of the session, he was quiet. I have started now to clear emotional issues.
Feedback since the fourth visit is that he is more aware of himself. On one occasion he noticed others drinking too much alcohol and withdrew from them rather than the normal “get wasted”.
Thank you John Thie for giving the world the wonderful tools in Touch for Health.
