Tessa Grigg has a background in teaching, making music (Tessarose Productions) and a specialist focus in sensory motor education. Alongside her educational career, Tessa has had Touch For Health Kinesiology as an additional tool to help children and adults develop skills to enhance their life experience.
Why does she practice Kinesiology?
While teaching adult students in 1989 Tessa met a Kinesiologist who talked of all the clever things that could be done to help learners who were struggling. “Well I have the student for you” thought Tessa. This particular student had multiple learning issues as a result of a brain injury. In short after three sessions the student was getting ‘excellent’ on essays and she passed the course in the top 10 students in a group of 40. She went on to a very successful career in her chosen profession.
Encouraged by this result and her own experience of Kinesiology, Tessa was inspired to learn the techniques for herself. What began as some fun with students, mainly to prove to other teachers that the student could be a highly successful learner, has developed into a business which Tessa runs from her home office.
Tessa began teaching Touch For Health in 2010 and is excited about passing on her experience to others. She also qualified as a Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) practitioner in 2016. In 2016 she completed a Master’s in Education with a thesis looking at the experiences of parents who had used RMT with their children and she is currently working towards a PhD where the efficacy of RMT is being investigated..
