What Kinesiology means?
Kinesiology comes from the Greek word kinesis, which means motion. In the medical sciences kinesiology is the study of muscles and movements on human being as well as on animals.
Advanced kinesiology and other programs we offer at the IKTI, use kinesiology to refer to muscle testing, a form of biofeedback. Using specific muscle testing procedures, this biofeedback system allows us to communicate directly with the body's bio-computer on different levels such as the structural, emotional and nutrition level just to mention a few. We test the body's systems & programs to help us identify and balance different issues on different aspects and levels of our lives.
Is it safe?
The techniques are safe and easy to learn.
Is this a form of medical treatment?
No, we do not diagnosed, treat, prescribe or work with named diseases. These techniques are taught with the intention of balancing a person’s energies in relation to their goals; we identify, prioritize life goals and balancing the energy to meet them.
Do you use needles?
No, we do not use needles. We work on the acupuncture meridian system only with gentle touch on energy reflex points using sometimes, magnet and laser (instead of needles).
Do I need a license to use this?
No, you do not need a license to use kinesiology. Questions about becoming a credentialed professional kinesiologist will be addressed in class.
Can children attend the IKTI courses?
Our courses are open to all and yes the courses we offer at the IKTI are easy enough for even children of a certain age to use and learn. The protocols are safe to use on family and friends. Many people report that IKTI courses help them put the power of choice and change back into their hands. They feel empowered and responsible for their lives and health choices. Children become very curious and love to muscle test or to be muscle tested. They want to know what is or isn’t good for them. Bringing your child to one of our classes can help you reconnect and deepen your relationship with your child. Must be minimum 15 years old and you must call ahead to inform and get approval.
Can I self-test?
Muscle testing is a science and an art. Doing it well on others takes training and practice, just like anything else. Doing it on yourself requires more rigor, as you must be neutral and unbiased in order to get a clear result from muscle testing. This is not that simple when someone may be attached to the results of the test itself and therefore jeopardize the accuracy of the test. Understandably, it is difficult for someone to be detached from him or herself. However, with experience and practice, you may learn to be neutral and unbiased and trust the body’s natural healing intelligence. What is certain is that it takes time, practice and real detachment from the results. We teach the self-test techniques in AK100 workshop only.
Is it too much to take one level after the other?
No, it is like going from one chapter of a book to another. The more you practice the muscle testing procedure going from one level to the next, the more skilled you become. It gets easier with more tools and hands-on experience. You become more at ease with the biofeedback system as you go from one level to the next. Plus, it is better to continue your practice if you can, without time lags.
What shall I bring to class?
Bring healthy snacks and water you can eat during the busy day of learning. Also bring different types of water and samples of the foods and products you normally consume. You will have the opportunity to muscle test all of those things to determine what is good and not good for you. Many people find this process to be fun, informative and even surprising.
Only for people who are requesting CEUs please have your license number with you and an ID.
What to wear?
Wear comfortable clothes. Long shorts or pants are good depending on the season. You may want to dress in layers to adjust for temperature. Do not wear heavy perfumes or colognes.
Can I register at the last minute or on the day of the workshop?
Space is limited. Please register as early as possible to ensure your space is reserved and you will not have to wait for the next round of courses, since most of them must be taken in succession (except for AK100 and RK/FC100). The IKTI may accept last minute registrations only if space is available. We suggest to always contact us ahead in case there are some last minutes changes. If we do not know you are coming, we won't inform you about any potential last minutes changes in location and or schedule.
