Kinesiology is an amazing assessment tool and uses manual muscle testing to identify imbalances within the body, therefore removing the need for guesswork when working with clients, friends and family. It addresses the nutritional, structural, emotional and energetic aspects of health, highlighting the links between muscle strengths and the functioning of the meridian system on the surface of the body as well as its flow through the corresponding organs.

After identifying imbalances, they can be corrected by a variety of gentle, yet powerful techniques, such as rubbing points on the body associated with lymphatic drainage from an organ, holding or tapping acupuncture points to stimulate energy flow, increasing water intake, changing lifestyle or using nutritional supplementation and / or herbal, homeopathy or Bach Flower remedies.

Kinesiology course(s) teach you:

  • How to accurately test muscles to gain information about the structural, biochemical, emotional and energetic imbalances in the body.

  • How to identify food / nutrients insufficiencies as well as food / chemical sensitivities.

  • Various gentle, yet extremely powerful techniques to release stress, help to achieve goals, improve dyslexia, and deal with fears and phobias.

  • How to balance meridians of the body to enhance general health and wellbeing.

Is your diet doing you more harm than good?

Healthy eating is only ‘healthy’ if you’re not intolerant to any of your food. Your body is biochemically different to everybody else’s – you’re unique and a diet which works for one person can be a disaster for another. So identifying food intolerances can be extremely useful for you and your clients.

Kinesiology is a wonderfully quick, efficient, non-invasive and accurate method of identifying exactly which foods one’s body is absorbing well and which foods it’s struggling to tolerate. It uses manual muscle testing with immediate results. It is amazing how previously strong muscles become weak when a food, to which someone is intolerant, is placed on the body.

Food intolerances can have many unpleasant consequences like obesity, chronic pain and inflammation, mental health issues, mood changes and behavioural problems. Therefore discovering food intolerances with such an accuracy can be a true life-changer.

Kinesiology is a unique holistic approach to natural health care

What our students say

“I absolutely loved the course. It was an amazing journey to discover completely new diagnostic tools. It wasn’t easy at first, as it was like learning a completely new language; language of the body (muscle response). But once learnt, the body speaks to you very clearly about what is needed and on what level (physical, emotional and energetical). I will be confident using it in my nutritional practice and look forward to the kinesiology diploma next year.”

Barbara Z.

“I cannot recommend studying the foundation in Kinesiology enough! I have completed many trainings in addition to my Nutrition diploma since graduating from CNM, but this was my most invaluable so far. Kinesiology is a fascinating subject, and its uses in your practice are infinite. It combines so many modalities that gives you some many insights into a person’s health. Sonia, our tutor, was very knowledgeable and instilled in our group so much enthusiasm for the subject. Best of all I met some friends I can honestly say were some of the nicest like-minded people that I will stay in life-long contact with long after our studies end. “

Lena C.

“Kinesiology is a truly mind blowing modality that I was so pleased to have picked by chance to study. It is fascinating! A really enjoyable course where we all looked forward to seeing each other each week!”

Maia D.

“Kinesiology is a wonderfully useful tool to use alongside nutritional and other health therapies. I experienced it as a client some 20yrs ago and it transformed my health at the time. The course was somewhat challenging for the first few lessons because there are many concepts, terms and body points to remember, but with some repetition and the practical sessions with an incredibly experienced tutor, it eventually made sense!”

Diane W.

“I really enjoyed the course, it has opened my mind to a very interesting form of “art”, allowed me to grow and trust my instinct, not just my logical mind. Trust others with my body and emotions. Personally, I would recommend it.”

Valeria C.

“I have recently passed the Kinesiology Foundation course with CNM. I thoroughly enjoyed the course as the tutor Sonia is very knowledgeable and helped us in many ways. The course coordinator Anja also helped me immensely when I had a few hiccups before I started the course. Overall, the course was exciting and opened a new world for me . If you are thinking about it, just do it. “
