So what is this therapy? I have outlined how I happened upon this therapy and the benefits I have felt as a result. It is quite a complex process and not easily explained. I get it myself now, but I had to complete a Certificate IV to reach this understanding. I am so fascinated by the whole concept that I have continued my studies with an eye firmly fixed on completing a Diploma in Kinesiology.
Neuro-Training is a tactile (touch) therapy that uses Kinesiology (muscle checking) to make an impression on a person’s nervous system. This allows that person to see and approach challenges in a whole new light.
Let me first explain Kinesiology. Kinesiology is a term used for muscle checking. This is where you activate a specific muscle and use that muscle to determine if there is a stress on the neurology. If there is no stress, then the muscle will stay in a contracted position. If, however, there is a stress on the neurology, the muscle will move to an extended position. This is how we find out what is going on for a person’s neurology and determining what we do about it. The above image shows one specific muscle checking method.
At 'Inner Health with Neuro-Training', the initial consultation will involve the practitioner taking down a case history for the client. This gives a picture of the work that may need to be done. It also paints a picture in regard to a client’s timeline, where they have been, where they are at and where they want their life to head. This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions, and if you do not know what muscle testing is, ask for a demonstration.
During the initial consultation, after I have taken a client’s case history, I will offer what we call an Activation. There are 4 Activations I have access to at the moment, which all have different benefits. I determine from the information gathered, which activation would best suit. I offer this initial consultation at the moment free, with the thought that people haven’t heard about this therapy and it is different from main stream medical practise. This free consultation allows a person to determine if Neuro-Training is for them or whether they are ready, without being out of pocket. No doubt, I will have to reassess this offer in the future to suit demand.
The regular Neuro-Training with Kinesiology sessions will begin with a brief discussion about changes noticed between sessions (if you have been before), or how things have been in general (if this is your first session). Then the session will move to the massage table. It is important to feel comfortable, so loose fit clothing is best, socks if your feet tend to get cold. I don’t want to give the impression that this is the way it will be every session as this just wouldn’t be true. That’s what I love about Neuro-Training. There is no such thing as boxes. It is a creative process that is determined by many factors. So what I tell you, I tell you so that you get some idea as to what to expect in a session.
You could say the session is divided into three sections. The first is checking to see the systems and energy in your body is working well, allowing for accurate muscle checking. This part may see the practitioner rubbing or holding specific points on the body or have a person activate a specific muscle while the practitioner rubs a particular point. The practitioner might run a meridian. A meridian is like a highway for energy in the body. Sometimes the traffic gets jammed, blocked or it runs in a way that is not conducive to a session.
Then the practitioner will collect information via muscle checking from the body, or you, or any number of resources within the clinic to see what the session will relate to. You’ll be amazed by what comes up. The practitioner may mention things that are very relevant in your life at a particular time and you’ll wonder how the heck they know. Rest assured, the practitioner does not know the big picture, just information that is checking up.
Then the practitioner will work through whatever came up. A client might be asked to look in different directions while saying something, they might need to rotate their eyes while drinking water. The practitioner might rub/hold/tap points on the body. Truly there is an infinite list of what are called Better Neurological Options (you might think of them as treatments). Sometimes when something is ‘treated’, something else might pop up, ready to be worked on.
At the end of the session, the practitioner might suggest various things for home support (homework) but generally speaking, you should feel very relaxed. It is important to go home and take it easy. I learned this lesson the hard way. I would leave sessions feeling so fabulous that I would set about conquering the world, well mine, anyway. You might experience more energy, but it is vital to conserve that energy for the recuperation process. This recuperation process can be tough. It is important to let whatever comes up, come up, don’t judge it or yourself and take care of yourself. Find ways to relax and do this as often as you need.
This therapy is life changing. I invite anyone who has their own Neuro-Training with Kinesiology story, to share. I would love to hear from you.
