Since the pioneering days of Kinesiology in the 70's and 80's many different modalities or types of Kinesiology have sprung up all over the world. This has been particularly the case in Australia, as here, there was a significant hotbed of Kinesiology development and research in the 80's and 90's that was recognised worldwide. To read more on the history and development of Kinesiology in Australia please feel free to read this paper: H&D of Kinesiology in Oz (2018).

By the end of the 90's Kinesiology Colleges began to appear which changed the landscape of Kinesiology. Consequently this Kinesiology Course section lists different kinesiology modalities and thier instructors, and separately, the different colleges,

If you are interested learning Kinesiology and/or are very new to the field please read our 'What is Kinesiology' section and look at our 'resources' section and contact any personnel below and ask questions.

Touch For Health

Touch for Health (TFH) is internationally recognised as fundamental training for kinesiology. Introduced in the early 1970s by John Thie D.C., TFH has been taught to millions of people and has played a significant role in pioneering the growth and development of Kinesiology worldwide.

Using muscle testing, benefits are attained by balancing acupuncture meridian energy, identifying foods that raise the body's energy, reducing stress and pain, enhancing physical performance, improving vision, sensory input and brain function, and by improving posture, co-ordination and learning difficulties.

The sixty hour course, usually taught in four easy and relaxed learning modules are offered by Registered TFH Instructors.

Neuroenergetic Kinesiology (NK)            Back to Top

Neuroenergetic Kinesiology (NK) is taught all over the world and is considered a modern and advanced stream of kinesiology. Developed by Hugo Tobar over two decades ago, it integrates the ancient wisdom from China and India with complex scientific knowledge in anatomy and physiology. By locating, identifying and resolving deeply held energetic stress, it stimulates the self-healing mechanisms of the body. NK is known for its unique combination of finger mode and acupressure formattings systems, along with the holographic model of reality.

Neuro-Linguistic Kinesiology (NLK)           Back to Top
Developed by Wendy Bennett, NLK aims to include aspects commonly used by all kinesiologists and the approach of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLPTM). NLK focuses on assisting a person to become aware of the changes they require in a very measurable and specific way. Like all kinesiologies NLK uses meridian therapy, acupressure, bodywork, stress release techniques and visualisation. It is a way of improving performance in any area and is supported by a programme which can be used at home, at work or in the classroom effectively and easily. It is easy to learn and the programme is a dynamic personal development experience as well as a way of qualifying as a kinesiology practitioner or NLK trainer.

Neuro-Training           Back to Top
Neuro-Training (NT) is a modality that has grown out of a process of integrating all the principles of other modalities and combining them with Kinesiology based techniques to create a totally new way of dealing with the challenges people meet in their lives. NT is based on a philosophical model - The Model of Universal Principles, as well as a practical working model - The Solution Oriented Neuro-Training Procedure. NT's initial purpose is to help educate through training the nervous system to be able to recuperate in the best possible way from the effects of the past. We call it our Ingenious Regeneration theme.

The courses are designed to cater for all walks of life. For the Kinesiologist and layperson, we have the systems integration workshops, 'Innate Systems', for establishing greater recuperation at a systemic level. We have the approach of training the individual to help him/herself with the 'Specific Skills' workshops. There is no prerequisite or need to learn kinesiology for these two groups of workshops.

Our Professional Training includes the Certificates/Diplomas of NT in Kinesiology.

To obtain full detailed descriptions on the Workshops, Presentations, Certificates and Diplomas, simply contact,

NT is taught in a college/certificate format. Conseqently for Instructors in this modiality please see our college section further below.
