Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic technique which uses gentle testing of the muscles to determine whether something is creating stress in the body or mind. Things which create stress will cause a strong muscle to test as weak, allowing a skilled kinesiologist practitioner to determine the real underlying causes of health problems.

This stress may be either physical, like a misaligned bone or strained muscle, biochemical, such as a toxin or poison, or emotional, such as a stressful thought or emotion.

By finding out what causes the weak muscle to return to strength a practitioner can determine what the body needs to remove the stress and return it to balance. This often uncovers hidden causes and connections in the body that otherwise would remain untreated, causing the problem to recur.

The treatments used are drawn from a wide range of healing disciplines, such as chiropractic, soft tissue therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, acupressure, homeopathy and nutrition, making this a very holistic natural therapy.

Becoming a certified Applied Kinesiology practitioner requires a Masters degree, followed by a post-graduate course of study and examinations.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care involves adjusting and realigning the spine and other joints to remove pressure and interference from the nerves. Nerves are the communication system connecting the brain to every cell and tissue in the body, so is vital that we keep them free of interference if we want to be healthy.

By keeping a clear connection between the brain and body we are able to regulate and coordinate all the functions of the body and express our natural life force.

Chiropractors in Australia study at university for 5 years to obtain a Masters degree in Chiropractic and are also required to complete ongoing study and education.

Exercise and Rehab Programs

In these sessions we analyze which muscles are too tight and which ones are too weak and design a stretching and strengthening program to return the body to balance. We also look at aerobic and anaerobic metabolism and which sports or exercises would be most ideal for your health.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)

NET is used to normalize unresolved physical and/or behavioral patterns in the body. NET practitioners are trained to assist the body’s healing process by identifying and balancing unresolved emotional influences.

Sometimes emotional trauma can cause problems in the body and the body cannot heal itself.

NET is used to help re-establish balance in the body in the form of a physical correction. NET makes use of the neurological mechanisms of speech, general semantics, emotions, acupuncture and chiropractic principles, laws of the meridian system, cutaneous reflex points, principles of traditional psychology, and more.

NET does not treat emotions, but rather the complete mind-body when there is a stuck emotional component. We call these stuck emotions Neuro Emotional Complexes (NECs).

NET removes the blocks to the body’s natural healing process, allowing it to repair itself. Since 1988, thousands of NET practitioners have assisted millions of individuals in removing emotional blocks to their health and happiness. In fact, NET has now become the most research-supported chiropractic technique.

An NET session is usually done in 15 or 30 minutes, although 1 hour sessions are available in our top programs. For more information go to www.mindbody.com

Neurological Integration System (Formerly Neurolink)

NIS is a ground-breaking approach to healthcare management used by practitioners around the globe. NIS bases its treatment methods on the neurophysiology principle that the brain governs optimum function of all body’s systems through its neurological circuitry. It is constantly receiving information from every facet of the body, and in turn sends back fine tuning messages, many times per second. Practitioners using the NIS evaluate the body’s function from a neurophysiological point of view. This makes the NIS method very accurate in determining the CAUSE of complaints. This means every cell, gland, organ, muscle, tendon etc in the body is constantly monitored via these circuits to the brain. From time to time circuits in the body become overloaded (similar to a fuse blowing in your car or home.) Power is now reduced to that circuit, and this will effect function. This is brought about when certain stresses to the body, exceed our individual tolerances. These stresses can be physical, pathological, neurological or emotional.

We use a prioritized set of treatment protocols to evaluate the neurological circuitry and the facets of body function they represent. This system, in simple terms could be thought of like a checklist that could be applied when servicing your car. These checks evaluate all causal dysfunction that may have translated into symptoms. To find out which areas of body function the brain is not fully controlling, a muscle test is used. The muscle test acts as a feedback indicator to determine which areas are dysfunctional and need correction. By evaluating ALL the body systems that make up physiological function collectively for each individual real causes can be addressed, and superior results achieved.

Nutritional/Dietary Education

As well as looking at toxins in the body and food intolerances and allergies, we also have an educational program to teach you how to eat appropriately for your blood and body type. The food that we eat has a huge impact on our health and vitality, so getting it right for your body can really maximize your energy, healing and health results.

We will teach you which foods are best for you and which ones you should avoid, as well of what time of day to eat them for maximum digestion and benefit.

  • Homeopathy – A complementary and alternative medicine modality that looks at your entire physical and emotional health and treats the root cause of imbalances with natural remedies.
  • Chiropractic – Non-invasive treatment of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system that focuses on alignment in body, mind and lifestyle for overall health.
  • Total Body Modification (TBM) – A system of natural health that uses muscle testing and reflex points to eliminate roadblocks to health and unlock your body’s natural ability to heal.
  • Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) – Helps you identify and resolve stuck events (real or imagined) that are affecting your ability to have optimal health and well-being in mind and body.
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) – A system of creating success, health and well-being through changing your thoughts, behaviors and belief systems.
  • Psychoneuroimmunology – Scientific and medical disciplines, including psychology, neurosciences, immunology, physiology, pharmacology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology and rheumatology, focused on interactions between the nervous and immune systems, and the relationship between behavior and health.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – An integrative health approach combining psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, experiential, and body-centered therapies to help you heal from trauma or loss.
  • Applied Kinesiology (AK) – Also called muscle testing, AK is a diagnostic or therapeutic tool that identifies the root cause of symptoms you are experiencing.
