Diploma Kinesiology 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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.
