Healing in Prison | Copyright 2021
“From the book, I most enjoyed the restoration of Values, Principles and the Morals. I feel it was the greatest achievement of my life. Thank you!” – ex-offender NS
I was lucky enough to be trained mostly by international trainers, right here in South Africa.
I started my healing journey in 1990. Therefore, over twenty years.
After school, college and working for a few years in the corporate world, I began my healing career.
In 1990 I completed a Reflexology/Physiology Diploma Course, but felt it was not enough. The next year I began my instruction in Kinesiology.
As soon as I was able, I started my own Practice and continue to see clients on a regular basis.
I became an Instructor and Proficiency Trainer in Touch For Health as well as a Professional Kinesiologist. I am Registered as a Faculty Member of The International College of Professional Kinesiologic Practice in St. Heliers, New Zealand. In addition I am Registered as a Trainer with The International Kinesiology College in Australia.
My Practice is called The South African Kinesiology Practitioner College.co.za
Over the years I also studied many other disciplines, including Holographic Repatterning, Educational Kinesiology, as well as Usui, Jikiden and Sekhem Reiki.
In 2006 I began teaching Stress Management to Inmates at Leeuwkop Maximum Security Prison, Johannesburg, South Africa. To date I have taught there for twelve years. In 2009 I published Healing In A Maximum Security Prison – A Life Skills and Kinesiology Workbook, which is the Course Content for my prison training. A couple of years later it became available as an Ebook.
After working for a few years in Maximum Security Prison, I discovered universal stresses suffered by prisoners in general. The inmates I have taught inspired and encouraged me to write this book.. It is my hope that they share their newfound knowledge with others, as it is a vehicle for self healing, learning, and teaching offenders to positively give back to society and to walk away from crime. I feel very passionately that rehabilitation is not optional for these people.
It helps all stressed and troubled people. Although the book is targeted at prisoners, the life skills modules and exercises are relevant and useful for anyone under emotional stress: people who are traumatised, angry and fearful about the future. Also those who want to reach their potential and become the best they can be in life.
By following the instructions in the book, anyone can learn how to restore balance and equilibrium to their body/mind system. There are easy to follow instructions, with photographs of specific holding or rubbing points on the body, as well as specific exercises to practice.
Most techniques in the book are not specific to a certain problem. The corrections chosen are universal and can be used in many applications. The idea is to bring a person holistically back into balance on all levels. Thus, the corrections would be used for issues such as stress, depression, guilt, control issues, pain, anger management, relationships, focus and concentration, improved self-esteem and better communication. These problems are very common in prison and have been largely overcome by many inmates who have followed this program.
