HOW TO BECOME A KINESIOLOGISTHappened on 1 April 2011 | ( 0 ) Comments
Kinesiology – A therapy of the future
Kinesiology is grabbing the attention of a lot of people lately. Despite that some critics claim it can be unreliable, many discerning people are turning to kinesiology practitioners as a last resort, hoping to resolve their longstanding health problems that seem to stump even experienced healthcare practitioners. The results can be stunning. Practitioners, using kinesiology, can resolve an individual's health problem that is difficult to unravel.
Through muscle testing, the body's 'biocomputer" will reveal:
The best type of therapy for that person, e.g. which muscles need working on and in the body's preferred sequence, what is the most highly effective essential oil, nutritional supplement, acupuncture meridian, herb, flower or gem essence … etc.
The body's preferred order in which treatment should be carried out.
Tracking down underlying causes - finding the sources of health problems.
Kinesiology is also known as Functional Neurology and boasts a repertoire of techniques that, for example:
Affect the body's neurological circuitry. Treatment diffuses the old patterns that the body has developed through years of compensating for imbalances. Even though the source of the imbalances has been removed, the techniques 're-educate the body" to recognise the new patterns of health rather than keep attempting to revert back to the old ones.
Exercises for dyslexia and learning disabilities
Diffuse emotional stress and its causes
Synchronise coordination of the digestive process.
Assesses TMJ dysfunction.
The Kinesiology Federation is the organisation that maintains standards. All courses that they recognised have been scrutinised and meet the criteria set down as being necessary for producing a course fit to qualify practitioners to work with members of the Public. They and the schools that they recognise adhere to National Occupational Standards.
Kinesiology Practitioner Training (The complete course from start to finish)
The Kinesiology Federation provides a list of recognised schools that provide courses to practitioner level. These have to meet a minimum standard of credits in Foundation Kinesiology - which is the underpinning knowledge that all practitioners need; Kinesiology to an Advanced Level, Anatomy and Physiology, counselling skills, practice management and nutrition (the nutrition course must contain in part instruction in how to use nutritional supplements safely). Each school will provide you with further information about their particular requirements.
How long is the Course?
An example of this is the course run by the Classical Kinesiology Institute. The Foundation and Intermediate kinesiology training course is 10 days in duration, usually spread over a period of 4 to 5 months. After this time, you can take an assessment.
Once this assessment has been successfully achieved, at this point you can either diversify and specialise in a specific area of kinesiology that you are interested in with another school, or continue with the Practitioner Level Module with the Classical Kinesiology Institute. This part of the course runs over a period of approximately nine months and has eight two-day modules plus private and group tutorials and homestudy. The Advanced kinesiology module is based on Classical Kinesiology. This course is eclectic in approach and covers a wide range of aspects of kinesiology training. It particularly highlights the use of kinesiology with nutrition and naturopathy.
The whole course is modular, and the remaining core subjects, such as Anatomy & Physiology and Nutrition can be taken at any point. These courses are run by the institute, but prior learning is taken into account and is discussed with individuals.
The whole course reaching to professional practitioner level can be taken over a period of 2 – 5 years. You can also achieve diploma status, which entitles you to put Dip. Class. K after your name.
How are the courses assessed?
Each module is individually assessed and accredited, so credits are built up along the way. Assessment takes the form of practical assessment, homestudy assignments and some modules, such as Foundation and Practitioner kinesiology, include a written exam with an external practical examiner.
The Classical Kinesiology Institute training course is recognised by the Kinesiology Federation, and graduates can become associate members of the General Naturopathic Council and the Naturopathic Nutrition Association. This offers the opportunity, at a later date, to further extend training to the status of a naturopath.
Continual Professional Developement
In order to maintain Registered Practitioner status with the Kinesiology Federation, a kinesiologist must attend 30 hours of additional training over a period of two years.
Once you have completed the Classical Kinesiology Institute Foundation & Intermediate kinesiology training, you have the grounding to be able to attend many short kinesiology courses that may be of interest you with any kinesiology trainer. You are also in a position to embark on further training to full practitioner status at a later date.
If you have any other relevant qualifications that may count towards some course modules, you would need to discuss this with your kinesiology trainer who will be able to advise you.
Prior learning will obviously enable you to complete a professional kinesiology course in a shorter time period than anyone new to the complementary health field.
