Epigenetics

The new epigenetic science reveals that your perceptions control your biology. This places you in the driver’s seat, because if you can change your perceptions, you can shape and direct your own genetic expression.

Your DNA is Not Your Destiny

Prerequisites: None
Duration: 1 Day

 

Epigenetic Healing Cycles – Turning Victims into Victors

In Greek, ‘epi’ means ‘above’, so epigenetics, literally means ‘above genetics’, or you could say ‘even more important than genetics’. Put very simply, epigenetics is the study of changes in gene activity that do not involve alterations to the genetic code but still get passed down to at least one successive generation.
The new epigenetic science reveals that your perceptions control your biology, and this places you in the driver’s seat, because if you can change your perceptions, you can shape and direct your own genetic readout.
In this workshop we teach not one but five different healing cycles, each with its own special features.

 

In this workshop you will learn:
  • How to help reduce mental and emotional suffering related to universal fears, 8 major job stresses and 25 common relationship issues.
  • The basics of Epigenetics – the epigenome is in control of gene expression. You are not a victim.
  • 12 Epigenetic modulators you can use for good.
  • The power of the General Circulation of Energy.
  • 5 Energy Cycles including Resilience (STPs), Vesuvius (TRVs), and Self-Soothing & Calming.
  • To clear subconscious murmurs of past traumas.

 

We want to turn on the genes of longevity, wellness & vitality and turn off the genes of aging and death/apoptosis. Your genetic profile is not your destiny, you can change your gene expression by the things you think, say, and do, the things you eat, avoid or listen to and what you ponder in your heart.

Five Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists

This workshop contains K-Power®’s basic toolbox. These five foundation skills enable you to apply muscle-testing knowledge to your specialty area.

Prerequisites: None
Duration: 2 Days

 

This workshop contains K-Power®’s basic toolbox. These five foundation skills enable you to apply muscle-testing knowledge to your specialty area. In K-Power® we use muscles as indicators in much the same way that an electrician uses a multimeter. The accurate feedback the body gives through detecting muscular imbalances enables us to detect the source of energy imbalance in the body and whether they are, for example, structural, chemical, nutritional or emotional.

 

In this workshop you will learn:
  • The fundamental concepts of Five-Element theory, the ‘great-8’ muscles.
  • The CV and GV energy reservoirs.
  • Five basic stress-defusers – neuro-emotionals, neuro-vasculars, accumulation points, meridian tracing and nutrition.
  • Four fundamental techniques – ESR, origin and insertion, spindles, golgi.
  • Circuit locating and how to shift blocked energy using a powerful goal-oriented balancing process.

Overcoming Co-dependency

People with co-dependency tend to form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. This workshop will help you recognise the basic characteristics of co-dependency, work with definitions to bring awareness and teach clients the basics of mental and emotional self-care.

Prerequisites: Mastery of Emotional Stress Release
Duration: 2 Days

 

Mental and emotional self-care awareness

Co-dependency is sometimes called ‘relationship addiction’ because people with co-dependency tend to form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. It is both an emotional and a behavioural condition that affects an individual’s ability to have healthy, mutually satisfying relationships.

Those who have completed this workshop will be able to recognise the basic characteristics of co-dependency, work with definitions to bring awareness and teach clients the basics of mental and emotional self-care.

 

In this workshop you will learn to assist clients to:
  • Complete a co-dependency questionnaire and administer a co-dependency quiz.
  • Explore early childhood issues and their relationship to current destructive behaviour patterns.
  • Get in touch with feelings that have been buried during childhood.
  • Use kinesiology techniques to defuse the past and the present, allowing them to experience their full range of feelings again.
  • Reconstruct healthy personal and family dynamics.

 

We seek to empower people – to give them tools, fresh hope and to show them ways to move ahead out of their present situations, whether it be pain, dysfunction, overwhelm, weariness, fatigue, frustration or apparent hopelessness.

Prerequisites: Stress Release Made Easy; Five Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Energy Therapists
Duration: 2 Days

 

Go beyond the Frontal/Occipital hold

Frontal/occipital holding, as taught in Stress Release Made Easy, is a powerful kinesiology stress release technique and can sometimes be all you need to relieve clients’ mental and emotional stress. But sometimes you need to go beyond the fontal/occipital hold – this workshop will help you develop further understanding and skills by teaching you total of 20 emotional stress defusion techniques. This is a hands-on, interpersonal, experiential intensive workshop that will make a positive difference in the way you work with clients.

 

In this workshop you will learn:

To assist clients to:

  • Find new resources;
  • See new possibilities;
  • Use their senses and intuition;
  • State what they are feeling, want and are willing to do to achieve this;
  • Use imagery, symbolic encapsulation and picture frame, active listening and role play;
  • Defuse stress related to (but not limited to) challenges to their authority and terminating relationships and use the hypothesis of an older, wiser self.

 

Frontal/occipital holding is a powerful kinesiology stress release technique. Some kinesiologists claim this alone relieves mental and emotional stress

Core Muscles and Techniques for Strength and Stability

Back pain is a common side effect when the core muscles are weak or not in balance. In this practical, hands-on workshop you will learn three core techniques that you can apply to every muscle you test.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists
Duration: 2 Days

Back pain is a common side effect when the core muscles are weak or not in balance. People who work their rectus abdominis with crunches but fail to strengthen their transverse abdominals, for example, commonly experience lower back pain. Back pain is common because so many muscles have to contract and relax to allow a person to stand and move.

In this practical, hands-on workshop you will learn three core techniques that you can apply to every muscle you test in the future: muscle stretch response; sustained muscle use; and hidden muscle failure. You will also develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 13 core muscles of the torso. You will then build on this knowledge by learning the More Mode, surrogate muscles, the circuit retaining mode, the important principle of muscle reactivity and how to correct reactive muscles.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • Three core techniques: muscle stretch response; sustained muscle use; and hidden muscle failure.
  • Develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 13 core muscles of the torso.

The Shoulder/Arm Protocol

Clients rarely ask for help because of ‘imbalances in their muscle energy’ – rather they come complaining of pain, restricted movement, weakness, or a combination of these. This workshop covers not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of shoulder problems.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Technique
Duration: 1 Day

Clients rarely ask for help because of ‘imbalances in their muscle energy’ – rather they come complaining of pain, restricted movement, weakness, or a combination of these.

The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 22 muscles of the shoulder girdle to provide such an alternative for clients. Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “I’m shouldering my burdens” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of shoulder problems.

In this workshop you will learn:

Skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing 22 Shoulder girdle muscles

  • Pectoralis Major Clavicular (PMC)
  • Pectoralis Major sternal (PMS)
  • Subclavius
  • Anterior serratus
  • Anterior deltoid
  • Supraspinatus
  • Latissimus dorsi
  • Lower trapezius
  • Middle trapezius
  • Middle deltoid
  • Posterior deltoid
  • Infraspinatus
  • Subscapularis
  • Coracobrachialis
  • Teres minor
  • Teres major
  • Levator scapulae
  • Rhomboids
  • Upper trapezius
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Pectoralis minor

 

The condition may or may not be the result of an injury. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.

The Knee, Ankle and Foot Protocol

Knee and ankle injuries are common and can require surgery to heal properly. By learning to use K-Power® reflexes and attending to the emotional component of the injury (both before and after surgery), you may be able to significantly reduce your clients’ recovery time.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 Day

Balancing energy using Reflex Points & Emotions

The knee joint is an unstable, complex joint. Because there is no deep depression on the top of the tibia it is relatively easy for the tibia to slip out of the normal articular position. ‘Shin splints’ is a colloquial term. People complaining of ‘shin splints’ may have been given this ‘diagnosis’ for a range of conditions including tibial fracture, muscle tears and inflammation of the shin fascia. The energy model of K-Power® avoids this confusion.

Rupture of the Achilles tendon is another common athletic injury. Complete rupture is usually treated with surgery followed by a long recovery period. By learning to use K-Power® reflexes and attending to the emotional component of the injury (both before and after surgery), you may be able to significantly reduce your clients’ recovery time. In Achilles tendinitis the tendon becomes inflamed and painful and can take weeks to settle. You can learn to help resolve chronic problems like these with K-Power®.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • The 7 muscles that cross the knee joint.
  • Skill and understanding of the 17 muscles that cross the ankle and foot.
  • Muscles of the lower leg and ankle.
  • K-Power® muscle testing and balancing protocols – knee, ankle and foot.

 

You will learn to balance the energy in this situation by using reflex points and by attending to the emotions involved.

The Hip/Thigh Protocol

Athletes often talk of strained or pulled ‘quads’ and ‘hams’, occurring mainly in athletes who do not warm up properly. In this workshop you will develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the hip and thigh regions.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 Day

More than just a physical problem

Athletes often talk of strained or pulled ‘quads’ and ‘hams’. Such conditions involve the tearing of these muscles or their tendons and occur mainly in athletes who do not warm up properly. They will often say it didn’t really hurt at first but a few hours later the pain intensified. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.

In this workshop you will develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the hip and thigh regions. With K-Power® the usual 1-3 weeks of rest followed by stretching can be dramatically reduced.

In this workshop you will learn:

The Hip and thigh muscles

  • Quadriceps (4 specific tests)
  • Sartorius
  • Fascia lata
  • Psoas
  • Iliacus
  • Adductors
  • Gluteus medius
  • Piriformis
  • Gemelli superior and inferior
  • Quadratus femoris
  • Obturator internus and externus
  • Gluteus maximus
  • Hamstrings
  • Gracilis

 

Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “so and so is being a pain in the butt over…” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of hip and thigh problems

The Elbow, Wrist and Hand Protocol

The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the elbow, wrist and hand regions. There are so many people today suffering with occupationally related disorders in these areas.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 Day

The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the elbow, wrist and hand regions. There are so many people today suffering with occupationally related disorders in these areas.

Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “I’m up to my elbows in…” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of elbow, wrist and hand problems.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • K-Power® muscle testing protocols: arm/elbow, forearm/wrist, hand/fingers.
  • K-Power® muscle balancing protocols: arm/elbow, forearm/wrist, hand/fingers.
  • Arm/elbow muscles
  • Extra forearm/wrist muscles
  • Extra hand/finger muscles

 

The clients condition may or may not be the result of an injury. They may have seen another practitioner who has given them anti-inflammatory medication, and sent them for physiotherapy or massage. The person may have had a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and now is shopping around for an alternative.

Neck, Head and Jaw Protocols

Great improvements in movement and relief of pain can be obtained from balancing the neck muscles and relieving the emotional stress that is so often involved in muscle spasm.

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 Day

Neck injuries are increasingly common and can be very serious.

Even minor injuries can easily become chronic and a constant source of pain, irritation and insomnia. 

Neck injuries can limit work possibilities and activities such as driving. The many joints in the cervical spine
are also commonly affected by arthritis (of all kinds).

While the kinesiologist does not treat medical diagnoses or symptoms, great improvements in movement and relief of pain can be obtained from balancing the neck muscles and relieving the emotional stress that is so often involved in muscle spasm.

This workshop covers a wide range of neck, head and jaw muscles and tools for managing common areas of pain including headaches.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • Neck and Head muscles Balancing Protocol
  • 8 Neck Muscles
  • 6 Head Muscles
  • 5 Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Muscles
  • TMJ cortcal areas and surrogate testing
  • Six TMJ problems people may present with
  • TMJ muscles Balancing Protocol
  • Headache Balancing Protocol

Your Face is Talking Again

Building on the learning gained from the previous workshop, Your Face Is Talking To Me, in this workshop you will learn to use muscle testing to identify 10 further traits (each with instinctual behaviours) that may cause stress in relation to your clients’ life situations.

Prerequisites: Your Face Is Talking To Me
Duration: 1 Day

The powerful influence of inherited traits

Structure predisposes or inclines function throughout the animal and bird kingdoms. Compare a racehorse to a Clydesdale work horse. They are both created differently to function differently. Put them in a race and we would know which would win. Each functions in a different yet predictable way.

The same pattern exists for humans. Personologists look at physical structure and determine how it indicates a behavior pattern. Personology is a science that reveals how the structure of our bodies exerts a powerful influence on our behavior.

In this workshop you will learn to use muscle testing to identify 10 further traits (each with instinctual behaviors) that may cause stress in relation to your clients’ life situations. By clearing the stress at the causal age, you will have allow your clients to have more choice in creating the behaviors they desire and in living out the fullness of their genetic potential.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Personology Traits
    • Upper Lip
    • Lower Lip
    • Skin texture
    • Leg length
    • Nostrils
    • Eyelids
    • Ear placement
    • Forehead ridge
    • Chin in profile
  • Physiognomy Trait – Philtrums
  • Working with Behavioural Genetics

Your Face is Talking To Me

Personology explains how our genes express themselves in our structure and personality. In this workshop you will use muscle testing to identify the priority trait (that is, instinctual behavior) causing stress in relation to your clients’ life situations.

Prerequisites: Mastery of Emotional Stress Release
Duration: 1 Day

One’s structure predisposes function

Personology explains how our genes express themselves in our structure and personality. It relates the human physical structure (primarily the face) to the basic behavioural functioning process and the personality. The key message is that one’s structure predisposes function, as is seen throughout the animal kingdom.

Personology is a science, based on the inherited traits handed down from parents and ancestors, that reveals how the structure of our bodies exerts a powerful influence on our behaviour.

In this workshop you will use muscle testing to identify the priority trait (that is, instinctual behaviour) causing stress in relation to your clients’ life situations. By clearing the stress at the causal age, you will have allow your clients to have more choice in creating the behaviors they desire and in living out the fullness of their genetic potential.

In this workshop you will learn:
  • Use muscle testing to identify the priority trait.
  • Working with Behavioural Genetics.
  • Personology Traits Physiognomy Trait – Philtrums
  • Working with Behavioural Genetics
  • forehead
  • face shape
  • jaw width
  • eyes – stress
  • eye position
  • eyebrow position
  • nose – bridge
