"I am thinking of enrolling in your Kinesiology study courses; what is involved?"
This is THE question most asked by people who a thinking of a career Kinesiology. It may help you if I told some of my story.
When I first saw a demonstration of muscle-testing in the early 1990?s I was both fascinated and hooked.
How is this possible? I thought. "How could a muscle become so "relaxed" and the person 'loose' the strength of this muscle as a result of a stress in that person's nervous system I wondered". What's happening here?
Although I did not see how "kinesiology" could be useful for me, the 'muscle testing' demonstration was something I could not get out of my mind.
Where to next?
So.. I then enquired about Touch for Health courses. I enrolled. I passed. Over the next couple of years I completed the Touch For Health courses level 1, 2. and 3 and became a Touch For Health Instructor. My family became my ?guinea pigs?. 14 muscle and then 42 muscle balances became the norm for them.
I advertised my Clinic. I advertised my Touch For Health classes. I was seeing clients and teaching people. People where ringing me for appointments. My emotions where saying - This is so exciting. This is so wonderful.
As a result of working with my clients, I became more interested in what ?health? really is. Clients told me stories about how they were getting healthier in ways not obviously related to what we were doing, and I began to analyse what factors were contributing to their health.
I had soon discovered that existing kinesiology techniques, although powerful, did not fill my needs. For example, I not only wanted to identify which nutritional support client's needed, but also exactly what doses and which product would be the very best for them.
What happened then?
This led me into the work being done by Andrew Verity. As a result his Kinesiology is what I now concentrate on in my clinic and what I teach.
The results since have been extraordinary. I now wanted more health and Kinesiology knowledge.
- Is the client in the right frame of mind for this work?
- Do I have the person's permission to work with them?
- What is the priority of the work I need to do?
- What is the best time to do a procedure and in what order?
- What is the source of their energy disturbances?
- What symptoms are clear? What symptoms are suppressed?
Kinesiology has helped me find ways to use and obtain information directly from the body. A person subconscious is a like a "world book encyclopaedia" of information. Now something I could only guess about otherwise is testable through the person's neurology.
WONDERFUL!! As a result, my work became far more effective and popular.
My goals are now to develop the most effective, robust and permanent methods for change that I could. With my new version of kinesiology I had a method to compare procedures. I could determine which of two or more approaches was best, not just whether a procedure 'worked'. I soon discovered that many commonly used techniques, although temporarily affecting energy, do not seem to have much lasting effect.
The philosophy underlying the kinesiology I do now though is what really grabs me. Except for some concepts from Traditional Chinese Medicine, muscle-testing itself, and some uses of various energy reflexes (all pre-dating kinesiology, itself), almost everything else I do is based on my training and what I now teach.
In summary then:
- Unlimited in scope and holistic.
- An extremely versatile teaching technology
- Shows how different modalities of kinesiology' may be integrated together.
- Positive health of comparing procedures and methods.
- Iterative process. Everything is checked; more added if necessary.
