What is NLP and Timeline Therapy™?
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programing and is broken down into its three difference sections;
– Neuro: The nervous system through which our experience is processed via five senses, the visual, auditory, olfactory and gustatory
– Linguistic: Language and other nonverbal communication systems through which our neural representations are coded, ordered and given meaning. This includes pictures, sounds, feelings, tastes, smells and words.
– Programming: The ability to discover and use the programs that we as individuals run, the communication to ourselves and to others as well as our neurological system to achieve our specific and desired outcomes.
NLP involves quite a lengthy set up and question process at the beginning of the program. The set up process is designed so the client and the coach work together using language to uncover and highlight the true core issues and limiting beliefs towards achievement of goals and changing one’s life. NLP is very powerful and works with both the conscious and subconscious mind, results are empowering, positive and life changing. Our reality that surrounds us is only a perception and projection of our subconscious mind, when you change the way to see things, than the things that you are seeing will start to change.
Timeline Therapy™ is the process of using basic hypnotherapy techniques to access your individual timeline. The client will experience past and future events in a safe controlled environment to gain positive learning to be used in the now. Using Timeline Therapy™ is very powerful to move on and empower the client from past and future fears, for example fear of success and fear of failure.
What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a communication tool though the art of gentle muscle monitoring where the practitioner can receive the information from muscle biofeedback of these stressors connecting with the body holistically. Muscle monitoring allowing individuals to assess information about the body’s energy its physical and structural state, chemical and hormonal states as well as emotional and mental states. These three main aspects of the person wellness make up the triad of health. The physical, chemical and emotional aspects that interrelate and when balanced, health and wellness can truly be achieved. The triad of health takes the whole person into consideration projecting forward into ultimate health and away for focusing on the absence of disease or management of symptoms. Progressively as we begin to understand more about the whole person, the triad of health expands into a more three dimensional model where a person’s spiritual aspect can create a tetrahedron of health. Kinesiology also looks past the individual and assesses them within their environment. Looking at the whole person, there environment s well as interpersonal relationships while bringing many other complementary health modalities together for develop a specific step by step healing framework. Kinesiology is a very special because of the unique solution helping the body rejuvenate biologically by recognising factors that inhibit our own innate healing potential. Founded firmly in the eastern wisdom of Chinese medicine with a deep understanding of chi energy, meridians and the effects emotions play on structural, chemical and spiritual functions within the human body.
Most importantly Kinesiology does not diagnose, prescribe or treat in any way, medical conditions or named diseases; nor does it attempt to keep people away from doctors, prescriptions, surgery, or any health professional when they need them. Among all the different healing modalities and definitions of Kinesiology, education and personal empowerment plays the primary role of healing. It is with education and coaching so that clients can make informed decisions and start working with their bodies within current modes of health and healing and taking advantage of all resources available to them within their environment.
Kinesiology is founded on the principle that our overall well-being is a balance of our emotional body, biochemical body and physical body. This is termed the triad of health, when all three aspects are balanced we experience total well-being. Both Kinesiology and NLP are tools used to develop a deeper understanding of what is truly happening at this core functioning level, at the subconscious and provide tasks and exercises to bring the body back into balance.
As the client it is you who is responsible for the change in your life. Kinesiology will give you new insights, set you up with tasking (homework) activities and work with your bodies energies but it is you who needs to be responsible for the change.
Has anyone experienced a negative reaction to Kinesiology?
Just as every client is unique, every balancing session is unique. Any reaction, experience and or change can be negative if you choose it to be. Sometimes in Kinesiology people face issues that have been their biggest fears. Sometimes it is only when the pain of staying in the same state is bigger than the pain of change that we can move forward. Within a session it is my responsibility as a practitioner to get you into a state of discomfort emotionally to allow for change to occur at a deeper level. Each session will follow with specific tasking that you the client take home to support your body’s changes. This tasking maybe food or supplements to nourish the body, physically stimulating trigger points to assist in energy change or lymphatic drainage or as simple as an emotional journal, affirmations and/or goal setting to focus towards a positive self-future.
That said, occasionally clients may experience headaches, muscle pain, clumsiness and a change in postural alinement for a few days after treatment while the body adjusts to new energies. Individuals may also experience one or all of an, energy, emotional or physical detox – especially when moving away from adrenal fatigue. Drinking plenty of purified water, eating food rich in nutrients and getting plenty of rest will usually clear this in a few days.
Contact with your Kinesiologist a few days after your session can help clear up any concerns and direct you in the right direction when extra support in needed.
Is all Kinesiology the same?
All modalities of kinesiology share the use of muscle testing to identify blockages and energy dysfunction. But each modality employs slightly different means to access information in order to correct the body. Some may emphasise the emotions while others will concentrate on the physical. PKP Kinesiologists are energy medicine specialists who emphasise health maintenance, client education and client responsibility by identifying the causative influences triggering health imbalances.
These imbalances are measured by muscle testing the ‘Chi’ (life energy) in muscles, the chakras (nerve plexi) and many other neural reflexes in the body that the more conventional modalities overlook. They explore issues around the goal with the client. Finally they assist the client to formulate a goal related to the client’s desired outcome and work towards that. Dr Bruce Dewe ICPKP.
How long do corrections last?
Many corrections last for years, while others are brief and may require a top-up. It all depends on the history of the blockage or energy dysfunction and amount of continued reinforcement undertaken by the client. Kinesiology assists with the change at a conscious level and helps the client to form new habits at the unconscious level. Kinesiology, NLP and energy work can often work in an onion like motion. Your unconscious mind will only release that which it is ready to address and deal with at any one time. Often the cause of imbalances within our energy has built up slowly by the unconscious mind over many years, most likely requiring more than one session to unravel. And like an onion, as each layer is removed, a new layer with its own issues may arise, requiring new corrections and balancing. Each correction will lead to another correction until the client reaches their desired state of health, personal empowerment and energetic balance. It is at this point that corrections will last. Furthermore the individual will be able to access their own innate resources to overcome future stresses without the need for energy support. Kinesiology PKP specifically has always focused on empowerment of the individual and independence in self-maintenance and self-development.
What can I expect to happen in a session?
The first session will usually begin with a detailed personal and medical history, and a goal setting session to form the direction of the coaching session. We will discuss with you what you would like to work on and really start to understand all the issues that are keeping you in your current situation. During the session there may be some assessments where all aspects of your daily life are assessed. Such assessments include physical movements for postural assessment, flexibility and range of motion in joints, and any pain level you are currently experiencing. Assessment is also made with visual and auditory stress, ability to deal with change, cope under stress or interpret new information.
During the balancing process it will be your choice to stand, sit or lie down in which you will remain fully dressed. It is recommended that you wear comfortable free moving clothing as you will be asked to move different parts of the body at different times to gain information. Within the balancing procedure you as the client remain in complete control for the duration and are actively involved at all stages of the balance. You will often at times assist in the balancing process, holding and touching your own reflex points as you learn about your own body and how to maintain health on your own.
Each session will end with homework of some description, this is called tasking. It is your responsibility to complete this tasking and keep the energy work moving. The tasking is always set together between the client and Kinesiologist and always to a level that challenges but assists the client. The tasking can be anything from nutritional supplementation, exercise program, flower essences, diet change or a change within your environment, to keeping an emotion/ behavioral journal. Each task is going to be as individual and specific as the balance itself.
Yes! Kinesiology is very beneficial pre, post, and during pregnancy. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant please let me know and I will modify certain aspects of the balance. If you are unable to lie on the treatment table you may remain seated during the session.
I am incredibly passionate about the benefits of Kinesiology for the pregnant and new mothers. If coming for a session feels like to much to cope with please contact me to find out more about my Empowering Mother Skype based workshops.
How often do I need to see a Kinesiologist/ Coach?
This will vary for each person and it will depend on what you would like to work on, but sessions are generally at 2-4 week intervals.
How many sessions will I need?
Every person is different, with different issues, so the number of sessions required will be very individual. Some people will only require one session, but a typical treatment plan is to start with 4-6 sessions at about 2 – 3 week intervals. After some discussion a plan will be decided on at your first session, often more than 4 sessions will be packaged together and presented in a coaching format. This moves it out of the therapy model and into a personal growth and development package.
How long will a session last?
The first session is always an hour and a half with a detailed client history filled in before you start (Client history forms are downloadable from the website under resources). Each session is between an hour and a hour and a half after that, depending on the issues and balance needed at the time. The client is always in control of the choice of time at the beginning of the session once the goal is set. NLP follow up skype calls are 40minutes long and will be part of the mind-body coaching program.
Cost of a session?
Consult at present is $100 for the hour and a half
