MuQi uses a system called Touch for Health.
Touch for Health is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life!
Touch for Health was created by John F. Thie, DC (1933-2005). The first Manual was published in 1973 and launched a worldwide movement in a holistic approach to health which teaches the restoring of our natural energies. It is a practical guide to natural health using acupressure, touch and massage to improve postural balance and reduce physical and mental pain and tension.-quote from Touch for Health

Benefits of Muscle Balancing
Using the Muscle Balancing technique works hand in hand with the other services used during an appointment at The Balance Point with MuQi. Muscle Balancing improves your health in the areas of stress, pain and function, as stated above in the Touch for Health quote. Muscle Balancing along with acupuncture and massage compliment each other to provide an optimal experience and accelerated healing.
Massage is a wonderful way to ease the pain of sore muscles. Muscles that are tight and overworked can benefit from massage to release the tension and stress in your hectic life. Our in-house licensed massage therapist (LMT), MuQi can help ease this muscle tension and accelerate the healing process offered through therapeutic massage.
To answer the question, most people are not getting adequate vitamins and minerals in their diets. The reason many individuals are not getting enough nutrients can be attributed to the poor quality of conventionally grown produce and GMO foods. (GMO’s stands for genetically modified organisms.) These organisms are made in a lab and alter the genetic makeup of a plant or animal. Check out this article GMO Foods - What you need to knowfrom Consumer Reports for more information on GMO’s. Another reason for the lack of nutrients, is a diet relying on packaged food and the fast food industry for a considerable amount of calories per day. This type of diet will not provide what our systems need for nourishment.
