eTip-009B   Version 3.0 - Creating Sessions with Muscle Sets to Match IKC TFH Muscle Groupings

The International Kinesiology College (IKC) TFH training classes divide the 42 TFH muscles into three sets. In Touch for Health I, there is a muscle for each of the 14 primary meridians. TFH II and III add new muscle sets.

Assisting both instructors and students, the eTouch Session Wizard creates the standard 14 and 42 muscle sets from TFH I - IV. eTouch is also able to create a Session using a selected set and then produce Session Reports for the results. This is a great way for students to present their practice balances to the instructor. Both the student and the instructor are using the same tool for learning and enhancing communication.

In this eTip, we present how to use the built-in capabilities of eTouch, so that each muscle set can be easily selected and also how to create a Session using the set.

Touch for Health I Muscles
(14 primary meridians)

Touch for Health II Muscles - Meridians:
(17 muscles in session)

 1. Supraspinatus - Central
 2. Teres Major - Governing
 3. Anterior Neck Flexors - Stomach
 4. Brachioradialis - Stomach
 5. Lower Trapezius - Spleen

Note: Notice that Supraspinatus, Teres Major and subscapularis are repeated in the sets for Level II & III because there is only the one muscle for the Meridian, so there are 17 muscles in Level II and III.

  • Login the Person you Wish to Balance
    (Create new personal record if needed.)

  • Click on the Muscles button on Main Menu

  • Notice the Buttons at the bottom of the Muscle List

Find All displays all 42 TFH muscles. 14 displays the muscles for the 14 primary meridians. TFH II & TFH III display the special muscle sets used in the IKC training manuals for levels II & III.

  • Click the TFH II Button

Note: You will have two options. Do want to see only the 14 new muscles (plus Governing, Central and Heart) or do you wish to see the new muscles combined with the 14 muscles learned in TFH I?

  • Click New

Only the seventeen TFH II muscles will be displayed in the list.
(14 new muscles and 3 repeaters.)

TFH II Muscle List

  • Click the Create New Session from Selection button

Create Session button

Notice that the Type of Session is set to Muscles Selected.

  • Click Continue and create your new Session from this point as you normally do using the Wizard.


Once the new session is created, it can be used just as any other session. Test and balance the muscles in your Session. Record your results and mark the techniques that you used.

For instructors, this is a handy way to teach the muscles in sets as they have been defined in the IKC TFH Training Books. For students, it is a great way to learn while in class and practicing. For students that must turn in reports for their balances, eTouch reports can be printed for turning assigned balances into the instructor. They can also be printed to PDF for emailing to instructor.

Below is an example of the Session Report Summary.
