Touch for Health was developed by Dr John Thie. His aim was to provide people with simple but effective techniques to help themselves, friends and family. However many health professionals from all backgrounds were attending his workshop and Touch for Health is now also seen as a foundation for professional training or as an adjunct to current practices.

Each of the four levels of Touch for Health is taught by Louise in a two day workshop in Liverpool. It is a fun, inspiring course open to anyone, whatever their background. You can chose to attend just the first level or go on to complete all levels and consider Practitioner training.
