Modern health must nowadays deal with a more toxic environment, nutritionally-deficient foods, increased demands and stress, and a rise in food sensitivities. For practitioners, it is helpful to access specifically what the body needs in order to establish the underlying causes of ill health and symptoms. Kinesiology is fast becoming the most popular therapeutic tool that evaluates health through muscle response testing in order to establish what supports are required such as homoeopathy, nutrition, body work or emotions.

In this article by Naturopath Angela Burr Madsen, published in Positive Health, Issue 219,  she outlines its progress over 50 years including the detailed scientific evaluation that has underpinned its development. Read more.

New Vistas Product Training will now be offered as tiered training seminars. Day 1 will cover our basic Toxicology training, known as our usual Introductory day. Day 2 will be classified as Advanced Homoeotherapy with Nutritional & Emotional Support.

We will also be running Introduction to Toxicology seminars in the following locations throughout the year: London, Leinster/Dublin region, Mayo and the Midlands so if you cannot make a seminar close to you, there will be repeat days.

Advanced Homoeotherapy with Nutritional & Emotional Support  will be a follow-on day to the Introduction to Toxicology. This seminar is geared towards existing CAM providers who are looking for product updates and more indepth  product training. It will also incorporate autoimmune ailments and how to address common chronic disorders in a way that’s beneficial to the public.

Day 2 is scheduled to be held at four different locations throughout  2015, commencing in March in Ireland,  with remaining dates to be confirmed later.

Sporadically, we will also run specific training days, such as Emotional Health Training with Australian Bush Flower Essences. We will also collaborate to bring you new seminars dealing with topics of interest to you and your clinics.

The Emotional Health Training with Australian Bush Flower Essences will be held in the Kildare area, once in March and once in October. Places are limited so please book early.

Kinesiology-Touch for Health – Dublin – Spring 2015

Touch for Health Kinesiology  is a system of healing that uses manual bio-feedback to determine what weaknesses or stressors affect the body. It does not treat or diagnose symptoms but acknowledges communication from the body which can help maintain, enhance and improve well-being.

Blending certain body muscles and traditional energy pathway philosophies, Touch for Health uses manual muscle monitoring to evaluate the balance and harmony of the meridians (energy pathways). Such techniques can help improve posture, reduce physical and emotional discomfort and increase well-being.

Touch for Health uses muscle testing to access the body’s response to stimuli – this could be a thought, food, trauma or injury. A balance helps alleviate the reaction to such stressors. This is achieved through a combination of acupressure, touch and dialogue.

The next TFH course will commence in February. To learn Touch for Health Kinesiology, and how it can be applied to everyday home life, contact Anja Ottenheim (emailanja@balancinglife.ie) or read more on her website www.balancinglife.ie
