Advanced Systematic Kinesiology Diploma Course is the professional training programme offered by KinesiologyZone
Who the Kinesiology Diploma Course is for?
This course is a natural progression for students who have completed “Balanced Health” and wish to become a qualified professional Systematic Kinesiologist and open their own private practice.
It is for students who have already experienced the benefits of Kinesiology and are ready to commit to further their growth and development. The KinesiologyZone training is very thorough, in-depth, and professional. We give our students very powerful and practical techniques along with communication tools that help you create productive relationships with clients.
Many of our practitioners have made that leap into full time practice and are experiencing their full potential with Systematic Kinesiology.
How long is the Kinesiology Diploma Course for?
The Advanced Systematic Kinesiology Diploma Course is run over a period of about 15 months. You attend live workshops (mostly once a month), attend live masterclasses (virtual) and have access to the extensive Kinesiology Video Library of all the techniques to support your learning and skill development.
Here below is some further detail of what is covered in the Advanced Systematic Kinesiology Diploma Course. Not everything is listed but it should give you a good idea of the wide range of techniques that you’ll learn, so that you’ll be able to help anyone who comes to you in some way.
The only pre-requisite to joining Diploma is to have successfully completed Balanced Health or other similar foundational training.
Kinesiology Diploma Course “Class of 2023”: Starts 2022
Overall there are 29 days of direct live training, delivered in weekends or over 3 or 5 day blocks. Also included are monthly Q&A calls, 1-1 Mentor calls, your own study time, and completing the required case studies. Venues are: CityNorth Hotel (north of Dublin Airport) and Lough Lannagh Village, Castlebar, Co Mayo.
#1 Weekend – Orientation (25-26 June 2022)
This is the first Live Workshop of the Kinesiology Diploma Course and the first opportunity to meet your fellow students.
We cover new techniques to reveal blocks and barriers to making changes – and give you lots of techniques to clear them. At a conscious level the client may want to do something, but at a subconscious level, they may be stressed about it. Therefore a fundamental conflict exists between body and mind. Then we show you how to release old habits/patterns, and re-programme a new habit or way of being. You’ll learn some more new muscles, as well as the powerful One Point Balance.
Finger modes to help give direction as to how to treat and you’ll start to really see the huge potential for the year ahead.
#2 Weekend: Digestive System 1 (16-17 July)
A malfunctioning Ileo-Caecal Valve is an extremely common condition. It can give rise to an almost unbelievable list of distressing symptoms. It is frequently the cause of the “I just don’t feel well” syndromes, which abound, as well as many types of pain and other specific symptomatic patterns. This is a key technique that will get you amazing results with your clients.
Riddlers Reflexes: This group of reflexes is very useful as a shorthand measure to find nutritional, mineral and digestive element deficiencies.
Hiatal Hernia: This test, like so many in Systematic Kinesiology is able to detect a tendency towards this condition, often long before it could be diagnosed by normal medical means, by which time the damage is often gross enough to need surgery.
Blood Chemistry – The innate intelligence of the body maintains levels of many things in the blood within defined limits. Sugar levels, Sodium and Potassium, Iron, Hormones, Proteins, Fats, and a host of other items in a very complex mix.
Dural Torque – Disturbance or malfunction in the articular function of the cranial bones, atlas, or the sacrum results in dural torque (a twisting of the spine and pelvis). There must be compensation for the malfunction or a neurologic deficit results. Dural torque interferes with the flow of CSF.
Overview of Food Sensitivities and Allergies – There are at least twelve main reasons (and probably more), which can contribute to people developing sensitivities or allergic reactions to various foods, or other substances.
We cover all the various ways to uncover food sensitivities and get deeper with your testing.
#3 – The T.A.C.T. (The Advanced Communications Training) 5 day Workshop (14-18 September 2022)
This is a special 5 day residential workshop run in Lough Lannagh, Castlebar, Co Mayo with Siobhan–Guthrie and Stephanie Mills.
It is a time to look at the way we communicate with each other, our family and our friends, our business acquaintances and our clients. Most of our communication patterns are more or less fixed from about three years old. Most of those traits are picked up from our parents and other adults, and do not always serve us well in later life.
The T.A.C.T. workshop is also a time to consolidate tools and concepts you already became acquainted with during the four levels of Balanced Health, as well as learning very powerful Advanced Techniques such as Injury Recall Technique, Past/Future ESR, Past Trauma Recall, Goal Balancing and a deeper understanding of muscle.
You can work “miracles” with what you already know. During the T.A.C.T. Workshop, you will have time to practice, day after day for five days, and in the evenings too, with people who have dedicated themselves to learning and using this information in a serious, caring, and professional way.
#4 Weekend: The Endocrine | Structure 1 | 15-16 Oct
We cover the Endocrine glands, the five key stressors, three stages of Adrenal Exhaustion, and how to strengthen and support your client.
Hypoglycaemia and low blood sugar tests. In Systematic Kinesiology we can find many sub-clinical imbalances and tendencies, which would be undetected by the normal procedures of medical investigation.
The Atlas is almost always involved with any form of food sensitivity or allergy, also shock both physical and emotional can cause it to subluxate, or adopt an inappropriate position or indeed get fixated, either with respect to the Axis or even more significantly, to the Occiput.
Retrograde Lymphatics – Poor lymphatic drainage is a relatively common finding in clients and contributes to many common health problems.
#5 Weekend: Immune System & Review – 26-27 November
Diamond Approach to Neck – a very thorough approach to helping neck pain.
The “H” concept for low back and pelvic problems
Fixations. Fixations are two or more adjacent vertebrae moving as a unit rather than separately.
Ligament Interlink – An amazing technique to help with joint pain. Ligament damage caused by athletic or accidental strain can persist for a long time, and be difficult to resolve simply using muscle rebalancing. This technique may also help people with arthritic pain in joints.
The Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) is the most complex joint in the body. It is capable of a greater range of movement than any other joint. Forward and back, side to side, and up and down, and any combination of all three at the same time. TMJ malfunction can be a surprising cause behind many problem pains/back ache/sciatica.
The Hyoid is involved in cerebral hemisphere dominance problems, TMJ imbalances, and subconscious awareness of one’s position in relation to the world as we perceive it.
#6 – Weekend – The Aura & Electrical System (28-29 Jan 2023)
Aura Leaks – Our Auric vitality can be sapped by physical insults such as poor diet, insufficient exercise, and poor posture. It can also be weakened as already mentioned by our negative thoughts. Learn to test and correct the aura.
Checking chakras gets to the root of a lot of problems. Treating client’s chakras is treating them at a very deep level. “Difficult” clients often have chakra problems. Chakras are related to the physiological and endocrine system.
Acupuncture and Energy Testing – you’ll find out whether the meridian energy system is in need of balance. Over energies through wrist pulses and alarm points.
Cloacal Energy Reflexes. The Cloacal energies in humans are involved with the complex synchronisation of cranial motion with sacral motion, which is important for the Centering mechanism, and vital for health and well-being.
Hypertonic muscles – a muscle which cannot be turned off in the usual way to sedate. They cannot be used as a S.I.M. muscle because they are not behaving in a normal way.
Using stacking to treat many things at the one time.
#7 Weekend – The Nervous System | Structure 2 (25-26 Feb 2023)
Turning our attention to the brain, the brain chemicals – neurotransmitters, emotional clearing (First Trauma Recall helps to uncover old traumas), the cerebellum and helping those with learning difficulties with cranial fault and reviewing many of our emotional techniques; walking gait mechanism, this is a wonderful weekend of pulling material together and reflects our MCPE approach. Time to review and develop your skills.
A second opportunity to explore the structural side of our MCPE, we’ll review Reactive Muscles and apply the principle to a new technique – Reactive neck.
Shock Absorbers – The ball and socket and hinge joints of the body, as well as being joints for movement have a shock absorbing action to keep trauma from being transmitted to the body. Sometimes the joints get too close together and cannot absorb the shock properly causing pain.
Postural Observations – Certain postural positions which people adopt can indicate possible muscle weakness and imbalances and using your observation and growing knowledge of muscles you’ll be able to focus on which muscles are weak.
#8 Weekend – Digestive System 2 (25-26 March)
Our work with the gut and whole digestive system is most important to the health of our body. In Digestive System 2, we focus on Gut permeability, gut dysbiosis, and how to identify and treat toxic metals, viruses and other toxins. Liver is also a focus, liver pathways, homocysteine, and detoxing.
Blood sugar handling, various dietary approaches such as GI and GL diets, paleo, ketogenic as well as intermittent fasting. The role of carbohydrate intolerance, insulin resistance, pain and inflammation, as well as a Peripheral vision for pain control.
It is a very important weekend because many issues are caused by a system that is out of balance. You’ll learn how to test for toxins which can be opportunistic, and not necessarily a cause in their own right. You’ll be able to identify what’s an issue and then the vitamin, mineral or herb that will help the body to eliminate it.
#9 Weekend – Advanced Structure (6-7 May)
We spend two days focussing on the structure of the body, and in particular the spine and pelvis. You will learn extensive tests to uncover torquing and twisting of the pelvis enabling you to help get clients out of pain and discomfort. Category faults. We also look at the vertebrae and establish whether a vertebrae is in need of attention. New muscle tests for pelvic floor muscles, this weekend brings a new understanding to the structural body.
#10 Review and Final Certification Exams (10-11 June)
#11 – Graduation Weekend – Advanced Emotional clearing (15-16 July 2023)
The amazing STO technique removes the emotional component of old injuries. We work with the spondylogenic reflex and diaphragm technique to help remove “knots” of tension in the stomach making people more restricted in their movement. TFT, psychological reversal and other emotional balancing tools to help people overcome Addictions. We show you how to pull together from many of the techniques you’ve already learned to help people recover from food and other types of addiction.
It is essential that all who wish to work as a self-employed person comply with current legislation on First Aid. You don’t have to seek out a course elsewhere, we include it – a one-day training course so you easily meet this legislation requirement. Your certificate is valid for two years.
Monthly Q&A and teaching calls
