Hi peeps

I was watching a you tube video on kinesiology relating to muscle testing which was trying to identify the muscles that where causing the client problems.

i watched with amazement and thought to myself "wow this is some sort of black magic":eek::p joking aside i was amazed on how it worked.

as a sports massage therapist i believe that kinesiology would benefit myself and my clients, but having investigated courses feel that they are to long and cover more than i would require.

my question is; are there any courses that would just deal with muscular issues and would tie in with my sports massage?

hope ive made my self clear enough:confused:

a short course would be great

hi there,
have a look at Kore Therapy, its based near Blackpool, though I think they run courses in the midlands too.

Its based on 'oriental' theories, but when I did some of the modules, they were very similar to kinesiology, so much so I couldnt tell the difference.

Hi

Please be aware that the term kinesiology can refer to 2 different things. First of all, it can refer to what we in the UK would consider as Sport Science - kinesiology courses at American universities are focussed in this direction. Then there is kinesiology as defined by the Kinesiology Federation in the UK which refers to kinesiology as a holistic therapy.

I am talking about the holistic therapy version, involving muscle testing, which I believe the Beagle is also referring to.

Hi

If you check out the kinesiologyfederation.co.uk website you will also be able to find information about training in many of the branches of kinesiology available in the UK. All the courses recognised by the Kinesiology Federation meet the National Occupational Standards in Kinesiology.

i did check out the KF site before posting on here, but their site wasn't the easist to get around and wasnt very clear either.:(

i thought i would ask on here as i know i will get a better answer to my question and maybe some ideas that i hadnt of thought of i.e. K.O.R.E which does look very interesting.

Kinesiology COurses

I run courses in Kinesiology - I do one day introductions and 4 weekend foundation level course which would give you certification and insurance (if you currently have a discipline you could add it to).

I'm in Sussex however, may be a bit far from you??

mod link is exclaimation mark on botton left
bit harsh to mod though (IMHO) at least Linda is being upfront and making it clear that course she is 'recommending' is her own

Unlike a tutor from who posted on the LSSM / NLSSM recommendation thread (before post was pulled) 😮

Only looking for consistency of the rules;)
