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.

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.

Chakra Metaphors

This introductory course presents the energetic anatomy of the chakras and their impacts on emotional and psychological states and life experiences. The aim of the course is to help students develop an understanding of the six states of a chakra and the effects of chakra stress on human behaviour. Various behavioural patterns associated with imbalances of the major chakras and some key minor chakras are discussed along with balancing techniques to work on these imbalances.

This course provides students with:

  • Understanding of the yin and yang aspects of chakras and chakra expression;
  • Techniques to investigate the state of each chakras and draw a chakra profile of the major chakras and some minor chakras;
  • Detailed information on the effects of chakra imbalances on behavioural, emotional and psychological state;
  • Charts of characteristic emotions and behaviours associated with each chakra and its state specific state;

Unique chakra balancing techniques to be used for chakra imbalances as well as foundation correction tools for kinesiology work.

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.

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.

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.
