Kinesiology College of Canada

Definition of Kinesiology


Specialized Kinesiology is the science of energy balancing: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Every thought you have is creating your future. Kinesiology is the vehicle to shift your thoughts and beliefs to create the future you desire.
Kinesiology addresses the root cause of energy imbalances, which keep you from achieving your goals -  whether in sports, relationships, learning, or coping with life generally.


Kinesiology Explained 
A fundamental premise of Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing its best to care for itself but that sometimes it needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this care. Kinesiology also recognizes that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that make the body a living, feeling being.

These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body's overall state of structural, chemical, or emotional balance.

In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities do not assess. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases, nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with correcting imbalances in the body's energy. In this respect, Kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow. Where, as the result of injury, emotional trauma, nutritional, or other unresolved stress, the energy flow is interrupted and the whole body is affected. The exact nature of blockage in the energy flow can be more closely identified by 'muscle testing'. Acupressure massage, light touch and other simple correction skills are used to restore muscle "balance", which has a flow-on effect into total body energy.

Kinesiology is often called "muscle balancing" or "energy balancing" - helping the body into a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by balancing its energies. Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice in sport, relationships, learning, or coping with life generally. This energy balancing that is at the heart of Kinesiology may involve dealing with one or more stress factors already mentioned:

- Identifying a nutritional lack or excess,
- Clearing a negative emotional component,
- Relieving pain,
- Stimulating the integration of muscle groups,
- Improving mental and physical coordination.


Class Size
Kinesiology College of Canada restricts its class size to ensure adequate personal oversight, follow up supervision and interaction with other class members.


Classes include the teaching of the theoretical and practical knowledge to the whole group, individual and pair supervision and small group interaction. During the practical aspects of the class, students work in pairs and groups to share knowledge and experiences with fellow classmates. These supervised sessions not only impart practical skills and experience but also enable students to grasp the application of the techniques.


What to Bring to Class

  • Water - you will find that you need to drink plenty of water during class and when you are working with other people.
  • Bring a willingness to learn and an open mind and heart.
  • Bring a pad of paper, pens, pencils and highlighters, you will be provided with individual class notes and assessment journals.
  • Wear comfortable clothing, layers are best, and bring soft indoor footwear.



Punctuality
The Kinesiology College of Canada requires students to be at class and ready before class start time.
Punctuality is habit needed to operate a practice.



Completion of work on time
The Kinesiology College of Canada uses the ICPKP web-based program that is designed to encourage students to keep up to date with their training. Students can be no more than two units behind in completing their on-line tests. At this point, the ICPKP server will automatically disallow the student's personalized notes from being downloaded for the next class thereby making the student ineligible to attend that class or any further classes until the test is completed. Please note that home internet access is required.


Competency
Becoming a registered Kinesiology Practitioner involves more than just learning facts and information and being able to regurgitate them for an examiner. It is also about being able to use techniques and skills and the application of information; these too are assessed. However, the manner of conduct, the attitudes and feelings perhaps the most defining quality of a kinesiologist and these too are taught and continuously assessed through student self-awareness, comments, thoughts, considerations and input from faculty and fellow classmates.

Recognition for Prior Learning
Students who have taken TFH are eligible to join BKP at 105 however a 16 hour review class is highly recommended to update some of the BKP techniques not taught in the TFH Synthesis, such as Self-Testing , Neuro-Emotional points, Five-Element emotions, PKP protocol, etc.
