How I became involved in Kinesiology and further in kinesiology training.
“I am thinking of enrolling in your Kinesiology study courses; – What’s 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 and 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. We have moved on a great deal since those early days, so where to next and how did I move to advance my knowledge and receive more training?
So. I then inquired about Touch for Health courses. I enrolled. I passed. Over the next couple of years, I completed the TFH (Touch For Health) series of training courses level 1, 2 and 3 and became a TFH instructor. My family became my “guinea pigs” for all the practical aspects of the courses I learn t and subsequently then the classes I became an instructor in. 14 muscle and then 42 muscle balances became the norm for them.
I advertised my Clinic and I advertised my TFH classes. I was seeing clients and teaching people. People were ringing me up wanting appointments and my emotions where in overdrive 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 analyze 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.
So what happened then that I became involved with Neuro-Training.
The philosophy underlying Neuro-Training though is what really grabbed me then. 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 about Neuro-Training was original, created by Andrew Verity. While I continued to run my clinic and teach TFH courses I heard about Neuro-Training through advertising and magazines which led me into the work being done by Andrew Verity.
As a result, his form of Kinesiology is what I now concentrate on in my clinic and what I teach. Of course this involved new training and a totally new approach to my clinic and teaching career.
The results since have been extraordinary. I now wanted more health and Kinesiology knowledge.
Questions like: 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?
Indeed, what is actually causing the symptoms? This seemingly small question has led me onto developing another completely new training series and practical workshops I am calling Resolve Beyond Neurology. More on this can be found on links at the bottom of this article.
I wanted to know the best therapeutic program for my client. And on and on and on.
Who Benefits of my learning, my clinic and my teaching.
Kinesiology has helped me find ways to use and obtain information directly from the body. A person subconscious is a like a “world book encyclopedia” of information. Now something I could only guess about otherwise is testable through the person’s neurology.
WONDERFUL!! As a result, my work has become far more effective and increasingly popular.
My goals are now to develop the most effective, robust and permanent methods for change that I could.
I soon discovered that many commonly used techniques from my earlier days, although temporarily affecting energy, do occasionally not seem to have a lasting effect.
With my new practical training series (my Resolve Beyond Neurology series) I have established a framework and methods to not only compare existing procedures but to enhance their already high value.
Practitioners of “Resolve Beyond Neurology” can now determine, with patient feedback from the way their neurology presents to the practitioner, which approach in their situation works best for them and sub sequentially, whether a procedure improved their outcome and had lasting effects.
