About Kinesiology and Biofeedback
Kinesiology was originally developed by an American chiropractor called Dr. George Goodheart.
He found that by testing muscle response before and after he made chiropractic corrections he achieved better results for his patients.
As time progressed he was able to make a connection between various muscles and acupuncture meridians.
By testing these muscles the Kinesiologist can get a picture of what is happening in your meridian system and how this may be affecting you.
So, Kinesiology can be seen as a blend of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western techniques which enable a Kinesiologist to treat you as an individual. Each person’s session is unique to them.
Kinesiology uses a range of gentle yet extremely powerful techniques. Kinesiology also allows the Kinesiologist to draw on other healing techniques and modalities and integrate them into the session where appropriate and indicated by the muscle response.
About Professional Kinesiology Practice
The PKP Difference.
PKP training grew out of the needs of the original students of Touch for Health in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Students were looking for a course that would train them to be working professionals with Kinesiology as a career, and with a long term training structure. Dr Bruce Dewe (MD) and his wife Joan (MA) developed the PKP series of workshops and have worked tirelessly over the last 30 years modifying the material and the programme so that the present levels of teaching are in line with academic requirements and government guidelines in several countries.
Julie trained in the Touch for Health System (Zurich), and followed this a couple of years later with PKP -
The internationally accredited Advanced Diploma in P.K.P. as governed by the I.C.P.K.P. (International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice), which was developed and taught by college founders Dr. Bruce and Mrs. Joan Dewe, of N.Z. Julie was trained In Melbourne Australia and mentored by the highly esteemed Don Viney and also trained by Rowena Maine & Ed Faust amongst other pioneers in this field.
The field of Kinesiology may be put into specialist categories, each with their respective methodology, however, P.K.P. is among the most advanced and comprehensive of Kinesiology practices available today. It combines the most widely respected Kinesiology approaches from around the world.
P.K.P. incorporates the many individual streams of kinesiology into the one system, resulting in a unified approach.
