About Kinesiology Kinesi means ‘movement of the human body’ and ‘ology’ means ‘the science of’. Touch For Health Kinesiology uses movement of the human body to create greater balance within the body. Each ‘balance’ as the sessions are commonly called is tailor-made for the body/person with individualized goals established by the person themselves. It is a very gentle process that can have excellent results. Developed by John Thie in the 1970’s Touch For Health is taught worldwide. About Tessa Tessa Grigg has a background in teaching, making music and a specialist focus in sensory-motor education. Alongside her educational career, Tessa has had Touch For Health Kinesiology as an additional tool to help children and adults develop skills to enhance their life experience. While teaching adult students in 1989 Tessa met a Kinesiologist who talked of all the clever things she could do help learners who were struggling. “Well, I have the student for you,” thought Tessa. This particular student had multiple learning issues as a result of a brain injury. In short, after three sessions the student was getting ‘excellent’ on essays and she passed the course in the top 10 students in a group of 40 and went on to a very successful career in her chosen profession. Encouraged by this result and her own experience of Kinesiology, Tessa was inspired to learn the techniques for herself. What began as some fun with students, mainly to prove to other teachers that the student could be a highly successful learner, has developed into a business which Tessa runs from her home office. She has recently completed a PhD focused on primitive reflexes and an intervention to help with reflex integration. Touch for Health Tessa began teaching Touch For Health in 2010 and is excited about passing on her experience to others. Touch For Health Kinesiology has many applications.
