K -Power Workshop Series


K-Power® puts the power of choice and change back into your hands. Discover new ways to relieve stress, increase stamina, make better decisions and improve your understanding of yourself and the people around you.

K-Power® is the latest training program developed by Dr Bruce and Joan Dewe. It comprises a series of half-, one- and two-day workshops with a wide range of applications. Some are aimed at lay-people wanting to better manage their stress and energy levels, others are geared towards professional health practitioners wishing to expand their skills.

5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics 

Prerequisites: None
Duration: 2 days

Price: $397.00
This workshop contains K-Power®s basic toolbox. These five foundation skills enable you to apply muscle-testing knowledge to your specialty area. In K-Power, we use muscles as indicators in much the same way that an electrician uses a multimeter. The accurate feedback the body gives through detecting muscular imbalances enables us to detect the source of energy imbalance in the body and whether they are, for example, structural, chemical, nutritional or emotional.

Some of techniques covered in this workshop are:

  • The fundamental concepts of Five-Element theory, the ‘great-8’ muscles;
  • The CV and GV energy reservoirs;
  • Five basic balancers - neuro emotional, neuro vascular, meridian tracing, nutrition and accumulation points;
  • Four fundamental techniques - ESR, origin and insertion, spindles, golgi; and
  • Circuit locating and how to shift blocked energy using a powerful goal-oriented balancing process.



Mastery of Emotional Stress Release  (EMS  2.201)

Prerequisites: Stress Release Made Easy; Five Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Energy Therapists
Duration: 2 days

Price: $397.00
Frontal/occipital holding, as taught in Stress Release Made Easy, is a powerful kinesiology stress release technique and can sometimes be all you need to relieve clients’ mental and emotional stress. But sometimes you need to go beyond the fontal/occipital hold - this workshop will help you develop further understanding and skills by teaching you total of 20 emotional stress diffusion techniques. This is a hands-on, interpersonal, experiential intensive workshop that will make a positive difference in the way you work with clients.

Learn to assist clients to:

  • Find new resources;
  • See new possibilities;
  • Use their senses and intuition;
  • State what they are feeling, want and are willing to do to achieve this;
  • Use imagery, symbolic encapsulation and picture frame, active listening and role play;
  • Defuse stress related to (but not limited to) challenges to their authority and terminating relationships and use the hypothesis of an older, wiser self.


Beyond Co-Dependency / Overcoming Co-dependency

Prerequisites: Mastery of Emotional Stress Release
Duration: 2 days

Price: $397.00
Also known as 'relationship addiction', co-dependency affects an individual’s ability to have healthy, mutually satisfying relationships. K-Power® can help overcome this. Co-dependency is sometimes called ‘relationship addiction’ because people with co-dependency tend to form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. It is both an emotional and a behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have healthy, mutually satisfying relationships.

Those who have completed this workshop will be able to recognise the basic characteristics of co-dependency, work with definitions to bring awareness and teach clients the basics of mental and emotional self-care;

Learn to assist clients to:

  • Complete a co-dependency questionnaire and administer a co-dependency quiz; 
  • Explore early childhood issues and their relationship to current destructive behavior patterns;
  • Get in touch with feelings that have been buried during childhood;
  • Use kinesiology techniques to defuse the past and the present, allowing them to experience their full range of feelings again; and
  • Reconstruct healthy personal and family dynamics.


Your Face Is Talking To Me

Prerequisites: Mastery of Emotional Stress Release
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00

Personology explains how our genes express themselves in our structure and personality. In this workshop you will learn to identify the trait causing stress in relation to life situations. Personology explains how our genes express themselves in our structure and personality. It relates the human physical structure (primarily the face) to the basic behavioral functioning process and the personality. The key message is that one’s structure predisposes function, as is seen throughout the animal kingdom. Personology is not about judging the looks or behaviors of others but rather understanding the uniqueness of each individual’s personality and its expression. Personology is a science, based on the inherited traits handed down from parents and ancestors, that reveals how the structure of our bodies exerts a powerful influence on our behavior.

In this workshop you will use muscle testing to identify the priority trait (that is, instinctual behavior) causing stress in relation to your clients’ life situations. By clearing the stress at the causal age, you will have allow your clients to have more choice in creating the behaviors they desire and in living out the fullness of their genetic potential.

(Also part of the Instinctual Behaviour Series)


Your Face Is Talking Again

Prerequisites: Your Face Is Talking To Me
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00
In this workshop we identify 10 more traits (each with instinctual behaviours) that may cause stress in relation to life situations.
Structure predisposes or inclines function throughout the animal and bird kingdoms. Compare a racehorse to a Clydesdale work horse. They are both created differently to function differently. Put them in a race and we would know which would win. Each functions in a different yet predictable way. The same pattern exists for humans. Personologists look at physical structure and determine how it indicates a behavior pattern. Personology is a science, based on the inherited traits handed down from parents and ancestors, that reveals how the structure of our bodies exerts a powerful influence on our behavior.

In this workshop you will learn to use muscle testing to identify 10 further traits (each with instinctual behaviors) that may cause stress in relation to your clients’ life situations. By clearing the stress at the causal age, you will have allow your clients to have more choice in creating the behaviors they desire and in living out the fullness of their genetic potential.

2) K-Power® for Manual Therapists Series 

Professional development workshops for manual therapists and body workers.

5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics 

Prerequisites: None
Duration: 2 days

Price: $397.00
This workshop contains K-Power®’s basic toolbox. These five foundation skills enable you to apply muscle-testing knowledge to your specialty area. In K-Power® we use muscles as indicators in much the same way that an electrician uses a multimeter. The accurate feedback the body gives through detecting muscular imbalances enables us to detect the source of energy imbalance in the body and whether theyare, for example, structural, chemical, nutritional or emotional.

Some of techniques covered in this workshop are:

  • The fundamental concepts of Five-Element theory, the ‘great-8’ muscles;
  • The CV and GV energy reservoirs;
  • Six basic balancers - neuro lymphatic, neuro emotional, neuro vascular, meridians, nutrition and accumulation points;
  • Four fundamental techniques - ESR, origin and insertion, spindles, golgi; and
  • Circuit locating and how to shift blocked energy using a powerful goal-oriented balancing process.



Core Muscles and Techniques

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics 
Duration: 2 days

Price: $397.00
Back pain is a common side effect when the core muscles are weak or not in balance. People who work their Rectus Abdominis with crunches but fail to strengthen their transverse Abdominals, for example, commonly experience lower back pain. Back pain is common because so many muscles have to contract and relax to allow a person to stand and move.

In this practical, hands-on workshop you will learn three core techniques that you can apply to every muscle you test in the future: muscle stretch response; sustained muscle use; and hidden muscle failure. You will also develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 13 core muscles of the torso. You will then build on this knowledge by learning the More Mode, surrogate muscles, the circuit retaining mode, the important principle of muscle reactivity and how to correct reactive muscles.



The Shoulder/Arm Protocol

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00
Clients rarely ask for help because of ‘imbalances in their muscle energy’ - rather they come complaining of pain, restricted movement, weakness, or a combination of these. The condition may or may not be the result of an injury. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.

The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 22 muscles of the shoulder girdle to provide such an alternative for clients. Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “I’m shouldering my burdens” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of shoulder problems.



The Elbow, Wrist and Hand Protocol

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00
The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the elbow, wrist and hand regions. There are so many people today suffering with occupationally related disorders in these areas.

Clients come complaining of pain, restricted movement, weakness, or a combination of these. The condition may or may not be the result of an injury. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.

Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “I’m up to my elbows in?” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of elbow, wrist and hand problems.



The Hip/Thigh Protocol

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00
Athletes often talk of strained or pulled ‘quads’ and ‘hams’. Such conditions involve the tearing of these muscles or their tendons and occur mainly in athletes who do not warm up properly. They will often say it didn’t really hurt at first but a few hours later the pain intensified. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.

In this workshop you will develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the hip and thigh regions. With K-Power® the usual 1-3 weeks of rest followed by stretching can be dramatically reduced. Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “so and so is being a pain in the butt over?” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of hip and thigh problems.



The Knee, Ankle and Foot Protocol

Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals & Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 day

Price: $197.00
The knee joint is an unstable, complex joint. Because there is no deep depression on the top of the tibia it is relatively easy for the tibia to slip out of the normal articular position. ‘Shin splints’ is a colloquial term. People complaining of ‘shin splints’ may have been given this ‘diagnosis’ for a range of conditions including tibial fracture, muscle tears and inflammation of the shin fascia. The energy model of K-Power® avoids this confusion. You will learn to balance the energy in this situation by using reflex points and by attending to the emotions involved.

Rupture of the Achilles tendon is another common athletic injury. Complete rupture is usually treated with surgery followed by a long recovery period. By learning to use K-Power® reflexes and attending to the emotional component of the injury (both before and after surgery), you may be able to significantly reduce your clients’ recovery time. In Achilles tendinitis the tendon becomes inflamed and painful and can take weeks to settle. You can learn to help resolve chronic problems like these with K-Power®.
