eTip-0014   Examining Posture using the Explore feature in eTouch 3.0


Dr. John Thie, during his 35+ year career, made many observations about specific muscles and their functions and behavior in the presence of stressors, trauma and overuse. He incorporated many of these observations into Touch for Health and we included these in the eTouch: Explore section.

Explore helps you to gain a more in-depth understanding of Touch for Health and can assist in resolving a variety of issues by providing multiple perspectives for exploration of TFH.

In this eTip, we examine how the Explore feature can be used for improving posture.

Note: These observations have not been scientifically verified.Touch for Health and eTouch for Health are not used for the diagnosis or treatment of disease. For all serious and life-threatening issues, continuing or worsening symptoms, contact a health care professional.


Correcting posture was a favorite focus of Dr. Thie. He knew that when all muscles are functioning properly and balanced, correct posture is one of the results. We will examine how to use the Explore feature with the goal of improving posture.
