Touch for Health Vision
by John Thie, DC, founder of the Touch for Health system
“The methods we are presenting in this book are not intended as a panacea for all health problems. They are not an attempt to keep people away from doctors, drugs, or surgery when they are actually needed. It is an attempt to prevent needless surgery and medications that is given for the sole reason that patients demand “something must be done” to treat their symptoms. This is an attempt to lower the cost of healthcare for individuals as well as society. The ever increasing cost, sometimes questionable effectiveness of drugs and surgery, and their dangerous complications and side effects meant that we all need to learn to do more to take care of ourselves.
My original vision as a health professional was to be able to train my patients to be able to help themselves to improve their awareness and participation in their own experience of health, guiding them to naturally support the creation of Wellness in their lives as an alternative to unnecessary and dangerous drugs and surgery. I developed a simple program of posture and subtle energies through dialogue muscle testing and touch reflexes, that can be used without any previous training. I wanted to help people to be more aware of their bodies and their miraculous natural capacity to regenerate, adapt and create new experiences and joy.”
Once people understand that the is always HOPE, no matter what their age or physical condition, all that is needed is a pair of loving hands to improve the quality of life. We do not accept a diagnosis as an absolute determination of the quality of life. Nor do we accept the idea that a lack of diagnosis or physical cause of symptoms means “there is nothing that can be done.” We cannot believe that we are meant to “just live with” pain and suffering. Ongoing, unexplained pain or symptoms are joykillers that can severely interfere with our wellness. Pain is a messenger that warns us that something is out of balance, and if we just shoot the messenger with painkillers, or simply learn to ignore the warnings, it can lead to major malfunctions and disease.
