eTouch for Health
Using the Wizard
by Earl Cook
The optional 'New Session Wizard' in eTouch is designed to be flexible and easy-to-use for assisting both the novice and the professional practitioner. There are several options available, so which path is best and when should the others be used? We find that we use different combinations to suit the needs of the person we are balancing and the time frame and context within which we are balancing. We have our favorites and there is a good chance that you also have found a favorite. And, as always when using Touch for Health and eTouch for Health, make sure that you seek professional care for all serious conditions or with continuing or worsening symptoms.
42-muscle 'Goal' Type Session

Other Considerations when
In the times we are balancing while focusing on gaining
enlightenment and improving our sense of personal peace, we use the
42-muscle, goal-based session with an assessment-type balance. For
determining where we want to begin with the 'one-point balance', we
use the Meridian Wheel and Five Elements and then go to the appropriate
Metaphors. We then retest all muscles found inhibited and use fix-as-you-go
for any muscles that we still find inhibited, which is usually none
or only a very few number of muscles.
The Select by Category option is very flexible and can be used in many ways. eTouch contains
information about the functions of each muscle, common symptoms associated
with these muscles, common activities that affect individual muscles
and other ways to assist in understanding conditions that we are faced
when helping others. With Select by Category, you can select muscles based on all of the above categories. You can
also select muscles from a muscle diagram which makes it easy for
a lay person to show you which muscle is in pain. Plus, it is possible
to mix-and-match from the different categories to create a custom
selection of muscles for testing. As a research tool, this is very
powerful and can be used to narrowly define a special testing and
balancing session. As research provides more answers, they will be
added to the Categories so that this option continues to get more
In the next newsletter, we will discuss in detail the
options for accessing either the Standard TFH balancing modalities,
Metaphors and the specialized balancing techniques. eTouch for Health
is open-ended and extensible so that new techniques can be added in
the future. This will be discussed in more detail in the next newsletter.
We hope this article helps you to both understand the flexibility in the eTouch New Session Wizard and that you have gained a greater understanding of when and how to utilize the many options. As always, we wish to hear your stories and would like to hear the preferences that you have formed.
