We understand it can be confusing but not all Kinesiology Certificate IVs or Diploma in Kinesiology are the same. In fact there is a great deal of difference between what you learn at one college compared to another. There are over 140 different types of Kinesiology ‘styles’ known as modalities. Each one can be vastly different to the next. For some the total training might only be a few weekends training and that’s it while others such as the Professional Kinesiology Program (PKP) taught by KSA is much more. It is not just the amount of hours taught but the content and speciality of the style of Kinesiology that differs. Most Certificate IVs are just a few short courses put together to make up the required hours. These short courses were developed independently and not designed to integrate with each other. PKP was written as an in-depth integrated course that starts at the basics and builds to intermediate then advanced. Not all Kinesiology styles are truly holistic either. Some specialise in nutrition while others specialist in the emotions or structural problems or learning difficulties or spirituality. They might be very helpful in the individual area or interest but lack the skills and effectiveness in other areas. The fact is we are a holistic being and any problem will involve a combination of many of these areas. KSA’s courses provide good all round skills and knowledge in the different areas so that the practitioner can effectively help their clients.
Kinesiology was the brainchild of Dr George Goodheart DC from New York, USA back in the early 1960’s. He gathered a group of exceptional associates to teach and further research this wonderful health modality known as Applied Kinesiology (AK). One of these associates was Dr John Thie DC who in the early 1970’s put together Touch For Health (TFH), a version of AK for the general public. TFH has been taught to millions of people worldwide to use on family and friends and was the start of a much expanded and widely researched modality now known as Kinesiology or Specialised Kinesiology.
In the late 1970’s from the research of Dr Bruce Dewe, founder of the International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice, came the birth of the Professional Kinesiology Programme (PKP). By far the most advanced and complete Kinesiology modality presently available. In 2000 the Professional Kinesiology Programme was re-written to suite the modern easy learning methods expected today. In Australia the Professional Kinesiology Programme is broken up into three courses.
* Graduates of Kinesiology Practitioner Level 1 (KPL1) qualify to register with the Kinesiology Associations to register as a level 1 practitioner. The International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice proudly accredits KSA as an authorised provider of the ICPKP Kinesiology education program International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice. With the help of Dr Dewe, Kinesiology has developed and improved into an outstanding health care system. Kinesiology is practiced in hundreds of countries worldwide as an independent modality and is complementary to Western medicine, Eastern medicine and natural therapies alike.
Kinesiology brings together the ancient Chinese philosophies with acupressure, massage, counselling and the knowledge of the modern day. It uses the body’s own bio-computer (muscle monitoring) to provide feedback to the practitioner. The Triad of Health is the model used by most Kinesiologists to help explain how Kinesiology is truly holistic and ‘treats’ the whole body / person, not just a symptom to reveals an accurate picture of the problem at hand. The Triangle of Health is used as our model to describe how the ‘being’ (whole person) must be in balance. For a healthy and happy existence the physical, bio-chemical and emotional sides of our life must be in harmony with one another, hence the term ‘holistic health care’. For example, if you feel anxious about speaking in front of a group of people (emotional), butterflies in the tummy may occur (chemical reaction), this causes discomfort to your body (physical).
