History of Kinesiology

Where it all started...

dr george goodheartHistory of Kinesiology

The history of kinesiology had its humble beginnings in 1964, American Chiropractor, Dr George Goodheart, utilised a model of muscle testing to enrich his chiropractic treatments. He has been acknowledged at the founder of kinesiology.

The model he chose to develop, into what is now known as Applied Kinesiology, was first developed by husband and wife team Florence Peterson Kendall & Elizabeth Kendall McCreary – see Muscles Testing and Function, in the 1930’s.

john thieIn the early 1970’s, after meeting with Dr Goodheart, Chiropractor John Thie developed a kinesiology modality for everyday people, called Touch for Health.  Dr Thie taught this ‘self-help’ program to his patients. After word spread to Great Britain and many other countries around the world, the Touch for Health Foundation was established.  This educational, non-profit foundation soon had teacher, nurses, chiropractors and medical doctors learning Touch for Health to add to their own professions.

There are now over 100 different courses being taught around the world.  Millions of people have either learned or benefited from Kinesiology.

In 1979 TFH was introduced into Australia. Today TFH is utilized by many different medical practitioners – from Dentists to Sports Medicine Practitioners.

In 1982, the first Touch for Health association was founded in Australia.

Today Kinesiology is well known and there are now two national Kinesiology associations.

The Australian Kinesiology Association Inc. (AKA) is the umbrella organisation incorporating associations from nearly every state within Australia.

The Australian Institute of Kinesiologists Ltd (AIK Ltd) incorporated in Aug 1998.
