Introductory Courses

Principles of Kinesiology

This introductory course series provides skills to be used throughout your kinesiology career. You will learn all about the theories of the human energetic anatomy and how it can be accessed. You will also learn how muscle testing works and how meridians and chakras are connected to muscles, emotions and organs.
This exciting course was created after Hugo Tobar deve­loped more complex courses spe­cifically to prepare beginners with the theory and techniques for more complex study. It is one of few int­roductory courses that include the 8 extraordinary meridians, divergent channels, connecting channels and muscle meridians. This more exten­sive understanding of Traditional Chi­nese Medicine concepts deepens the beginner student's knowledge and appreciation of the origins and de­velopment of kinesiology.
Other important kinesiology tech­niques will be studied, such as the use of finger modes (mudras), correction for 20 different muscles and the knowledge to build a kinesiology balance with all of these elements.

4 x 2 days = 64 hours + 16 hours practice sessions + 66 hours of workbooks

Brain Formatting

This course provides an introduction into the body’s three main areas of neural stimulation: the brain, the heart and the enteric nervous system. Each of these areas has its own relative autonomy and plays vital roles in maintaining health and wellbeing. As they are essential to our growth, development and survival, these support systems often carry within their structures great amounts of stress accumulated over a lifetime.
Formatting is one of the unique techniques used in modern kinesiology modalities. It enables the practitioner to access and release stress from deep within the organisation of the nervous system by creating complex resonance patterns. By incorporating neurology into balancing, it allows you to work with stress at a deeper level by identifying precise areas of imbalance and by monitoring its impact on anatomy and physiology.

2 days | prerequisite: Touch for Health 3 (or equivalent) | 400 AUD

Physiology Formatting

This workshop takes you on a journey through the vital processes for living systems - oxygenation, hydration and energy production. This course extends the concepts of formatting introduced in Brain Formatting and applies these concepts to the physiology of the organs and glands associated with the 14 meridians. You will learn to work with twenty-five organs and glands associated with these meridians. The procedures include the relevant formats for hormones, neurotransmitters and nutrients involved in these vital processes. Mastering the art of working with the body system organs and glands perfectly complement the previous study into energy systems and the brain as well as provide an excellent foundation into advanced study of biochemistry.

2 days | prerequisite: Brain Formatting | 400 AUD

Balancing with the 5 Elements

This course looks at the flow of chi through the 5 elements, 14 main and 8 extraordina­ry meridians. You will learn about the two states of chi flow imbalance and the associated emotions specific to the meridian, element and state.

Meridian and element systems in Traditional Chinese Medicine being holistic resemble relationships seen in nature, building and depleting each other as they flow on continuously to maintain a life force for our organs and mind. As such the 5 elements and meridian procedures will define spe­cific states of imbalance within the entire system and their associated emotions as well as identify which energetic sys­tem is out of balance.

2 days | prerequisite: Touch for Health or Principles of Kinesiology | 400 AUD

Sound & Light Healing

This course looks at the use of sound and coloured light in the balancing of chakras and meridians. There is an analysis of the different colours and sounds that are used to balance chakras and meridians according to their state of imbalance. Meridians and chakras can be in either three states, they can be balanced or they can have a deficient energy flow imbalance or an excessive energy flow imbalance. Different tones and colours are used for either of the two states of imbalance. There is also an explanation and a technique where symbols are used with coloured light in the chakras and meridians. The colours and tones have been mapped for the 7 major chakras, 23 minor chakras, 5 celestial chakras, 14 main meridians and 8 extraordinary meridians.

1 day | prerequisite: Touch for Health or Principles of Kinesiology | 200 AUD

Neuroenergetic Kinesiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine – TCM Workshops

Neuroenergetic Kinesiology takes its roots in the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts of health and wellbeing. According to these concepts, health and disease are dynamic processes in which body systems move interdependently in and out of balance rather than being purely the products of structural and biochemical dysfunctions. Bodily organs and functions are regulated by the vital energy flow of chi through meridian channels, taking on the opposite yet complementary character of yin and yang. The quality of interactions of chi moving through the various energy channels is defined by the theory of the Five Elements which coordinate the sequence of action and counteraction of vital energy through the body. Health is achieved by maintaining a state of balance in the flow of chi, its yin and yang characteristics and the types of interactions it keeps with the various body systems, functions, organs and the environment.

The techniques used in Neuroenergetic Kinesiology utilise acupressure points as gateway into meridians to facilitate healing by restoring a balanced state in the character and interactions of chi in different areas of the body.

Chakra Courses

Chakra Hologram Series

This series of courses explores many of the body’s chakras or energy centres, their interrelations through the nadi system and their local and systemic effects on the body as well as the overall wellbeing of a person. As first energetics structures to develop in utero, the chakras guide and support physical structures such as the endocrine system, sensory and body organs, joint structures and limb movement as well as their associated functions and belief patterns on all seven planes of the aura. The importance of the chakras in the development of self-awareness, soul purpose and higher self-realisation is also explained.

As energy centres, the chakras impact the anatomy and physiology of the body in a profound way through their interactions with the nervous system. Stress on energetic levels can lead to physiological manifestations and health related issues. This series of courses aims to develop an understanding of the various states of imbalance of these energy centres and their associated energetic channels of the nadi system and how these manifest on the physical, emotional and psychological planes and beyond. Students also learn to balance these manifestations through energetic pathways.

These courses provide:

  • In depth information on all major chakras, 24 minor chakras and 5 outer body chakras;
  • Clinical manifestations of imbalances in each of the energy centres;
  • Extensive knowledge on the interactions between the chakras, the nadi and nervous systems and how the energy flows between these structures;
  • Balancing protocols for the imbalance states of each chakra along with additional powerful techniques such as the Nadi Hologram and Kundalini Hologram.

Neuroemotional Courses

Neuroemotional Pathways Series

This series of course explores the neurological pathways associated with emotions along with their distinct functions and related physiological responses. Strong emotions can be described as whole systems with specific sets of triggers and programmed bodily reactions. These systems stimulate us to take action, move forward and adapt by ensuring survival through reproduction and suppression of danger, learning of skills and behaviours, and development of proper social interactions.

Predetermined emotional responses can be activated in a wide range of situations and fulfil a number purposes in evolution of mankind, however stress can trigger emotional systems in inappropriate circumstances and cause reactions that are unwanted or unfitting in their intensity. This series of courses is designed to provide students with a strong knowledge of the various neurological pathways involved in the activation of these emotional systems, their processing in the nervous system, the modulation of the response and its expression by the different body systems. Unique balancing techniques are taught to assist the body in releasing stress and responding appropriately, in a timely manner and with the right intensity to any situation.

These courses provide students with:

  • Detailed information on each emotional system including functions, neurological pathways from stimuli to body response, biochemical activity of neurotransmitters and anatomy and physiology of the response;
  • Integrative techniques that take into account interrelations between systems in particular the effects of the primary emotional systems of survival onto all other systems;
  • Specialised balancing techniques for each system as well as an innovative correction and release technique for neuroemotional stress.

Neuroemotional Pathways 1

Neuroemotional Pathways 4

In this course, students will work with the 5 survival emotions to an even deeper level as they learn to understand them according to the impact of time and experience. This course focuses on two different aspects of memory formation and recall:

  1. Dealing with the 5 primary survival emotions (Rage, Fear, Panic, Seeking & Nuture) in relation to experience. This involves investigating the key area in the emotional processing stage to identify where your client is stuck and then balancing that specific part of the pathway. Emotions can be expressed, suppressed and resolved. The suppression pathway is the most important for working with long term stored emotions in the body. It also includes a balancing pathway for emotional conditioning in instances where an emotion, has been conditioned to a specific stimulus, which previously was neutral. Cases of abuse and posttraumatic stress often have conditioning to the emotion fear.
  2. Working with the processes involved in learning. Unique pathways are studied for visual and auditory function, as well as reading, which combines both. These are further divided into numeracy and literacy pathways. The different types of memory involved in learning are also studied from short term to long term and familiarity. Aptitude tests used by psychologists to assess these areas are covered for each of the types of memory and the pathways specific to the sensory input and neural function.

This course provides students with:

  • Excellent understanding of the different types of sensory input and how they affect memory;
  • Methods to identify the specifics of emotional functioning (suppression, expression, resolution) from a neurological level and facilitate the balancing of these processes;
  • Techniques to work with emotional conditioning which can uncover the nature of the stimulus and directly impact PTSD and trauma sufferers;
  • Balancing techniques for specific pathways in the PAG for the 5 different survival emotions and how these are expressed or suppressed in the body;
  • Balancing techniques to work with learning processes in a step by step fashion from attention and memory to auditory and visual reception to numbers and words recognition.

Core NK Courses

Body Structure Series

These courses are developed around the structural aspects of the body from the complex joint units and their individual components, to single elements such as smooth muscles and skin, which play a vital role in maintaining essential bodily functions. Structural constituents of the body are critical in all aspects of daily activities such as movement, body balance, sensory perceptions, speech and even the key metabolic processes of digestion, breathing and blood circulation. 

As body structure elements provide support to all other body systems, stress and imbalances in these structures can deeply impact health and wellbeing. All the components of structure work synergistically meaning that injury, trauma or stress on one of the elements can significantly affect the proper functioning of the whole system. These courses aim to provide students with a thorough understanding of all main joint structures and supporting functions of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilages, fasciae, dermatomes and nerves. Each region of the body is studied in light of its structural aspects, imbalances and clinical manifestations and profound balancing techniques are provided to relieve stress and enhance the supporting capabilities of the structures.

 These courses include:

  • Balancing techniques for joints of the head and neck including cranial sutures, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), neck joints and hyoid bone structure;

Primitive Reflexes Series

These courses explore the first reflexes present at birth and developed in utero from which are built the more complex coordinated functions of the nervous system during infancy and childhood. Proper integration of these reflexes in the first year of life ensures optimal development of neural function, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

As the nervous system develops and basic skills are learnt, reflexes are gradually integrated and evolve into complex neurological processes that produce well-adjusted responses to a wide range of stimuli. These advanced courses seek to analyse the results of inadequate integration of any of the primitive reflexes during infancy which often lead to learning and behavioural difficulties in later years. Specialised techniques are taught to target and release the long-term developmental stresses and facilitate late integration of reflexes.   

This series of courses provides students with:

  • Two major formatting systems for identifying and balancing stresses that have occurred during embryological and postnatal development;
  • In depth information and balancing techniques for neurological pathways of each category of reflexes.

The I Ching Hologram

This is an application of the eight extra meridian hologram. It looks at the relationship between the eight I ching trigrams and the eight extra meridians. The trigrams are paired together like a coordinate system to form the 64 hexagrams of the I ching. This means that the I ching is a hologram, the I ching is the world’s first book, therefore the world’s first book is a hologram! The 64 I ching hexagrams relate to the 64 codons of the Genetic code, each codon codes for a specific amino acid, in the Genetic structure (DNA) allowing the formation of Proteins. The amino acids have been related to the kabbala, and therefore the major arcana of the tarot.

Wayne Topping has developed muscle tests involved with the eight extra meridians, I have developed holographic muscle tests for these muscle tests. Learn how to test these muscle tests holographically, and holographic neurovasculars, neurolymphatics and Spiritual flower messages from the Mother of Pondicherry. Holographic muscle monitoring of the muscle tests of the eight extra meridians as developed by Wayne Topping. There are 13 muscle tests treated. The eight extra meridians have a much more spiritual essence, therefore are related to much more spiritual issues.

This workshop is very useful for using with other eight extra meridian holograms such as the Genetic Hologram, The Hormone hologram and the Heavenly Hologram.
