Kinesiology Schools Upping the Standard! Welcome to the latest edition of KSA magizine. Over the last few months quite a few of the KSA colleges have been privileged to have Dr Susan Eardley from the University of Southampton in the UK talk to them. Susan talked about her research into Kinesiology and how it helps pain. There are many types of Kinesiology and Dr Eardley chose PKP to be the test model for her research because of its quality and success. PKP has proven itself time and time again over many years. As spoken about in previous issues, Kinesiology is going through an education revamp by the national training authority. This happens from time to time. Hopefully this will up the quality of some of the other Kinesiology colleges. Every time the ASQA makes changes every college has to make adjustments to their courses. KSA will be adding extra non Kinesiology units only. The high standard of the ICPKP courses, which is what KSA teach is still well above the requirements of the new standards. Once again KSA will not be lowering our standard to match the minimal standards required. You can be assured you will be leaders in Kinesiology. The Brisbane campus is presently looking for a larger premises. The college will still be on the north side of Brisbane within a few kms of the freeway for easy access from the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. If all goes nicely the move will happen within the next two months. The Sydney campus is also on the move and will be located only 10 minutes from their current campus. Its so exciting to see Kinesiology Schools Australia growing, along with recognition of Kinesiology worldwide! The future looks bright! Regards

What Do New Changes to the Certificate IV Mean for You? Recently Kinesiology Schools Australia has upgraded the Certificate IV in Kinesiology qualification offered to HLT42812. Jenne Burns, (Principal of Narre Warren campus in Melbourne) asks Susan Koschel-Gatenby (Principal Hervey Bay campus) some questions around this topic. Jenne: So, we have just upgraded from HLT42807 to HLT42812, how will this affect our students? Susan: Students who are currently enrolled can complete their Certificate IV under the qualification HLT42807. This is the Qualification Code that has been offered at all our campuses for the last 5 years. Existing students who are currently enrolled may also have the option to upgrade their Certificate IV qualification to the new code HLT42812. The existing students will need to complete new home study units in order to upgrade. Any new students as of 1st July will be enrolling in the HLT42812 course across all campuses. (With some campuses introducing the new code before this.) Jenne: Will it cost more for the students? Susan: Each individual KSA campus is responsible for setting its fees for the qualifications offered. Existing students who choose to upgrade can expect additional fees related to the additional home study units added. Students should contact their local campus to discuss their individual situation. New enrolments can expect to see some price increases from last year’s fees. Obviously with more materials provided, and more student supervision or assessment results in more fees.
Jenne: Why is KSA upgrading the Certificate IV? Susan: KSA’s Certificate IV course (following the BKP units) has always focused on providing students with significant opportunities to practice any new skill in class, with ample opportunity for formative assessment. This kind of assessment offers the student to practice the skill in the classroom situation, and to receive feedback on areas to improve or upgrade as they work. Over the weeks and months of the training, teachers see an increase in the student’s confidence, competence and understanding of the techniques and protocols learned. KSA is upgrading our Certificate IV units to be in line with the new qualification code released last year. The AQTF (and its regulating body ASQA) are now placing more emphasis on Summative Assessments that evaluate the student’s competency level at a particular point in time. KSA’s upgraded qualification is reflective of this summative approach. Much of the ‘new’ material covered was previously assessed more informally in the classroom, so these new home studies are really backing up the practical skills students have picked up in the classroom. For students who learn best by time spent reflecting and recording their insights, the upgrade will be invaluable. And on that note, I think the students who are able to help a client link the significance of a particular technique with their own situation really have valuable edge in the market place. So they are not simply ‘doing this technique’ to the client, but are really working with the client to create long term changes. Reflection and

The evidence seems confusing and the choices far from easy to make
Do I have the ‘Flu’ Jab or don’t I? Dr. Bruce Dewe MD, Founder ICPKP
When it comes to the ‘flu’ jab it seems hard to know what to do. You are going to have to make up your own mind because the reports are confusing. The NZ Ministry of Health figures show hospital costs for influenzarelated admissions dropping from $7.3m in 2010, to $5.3m in 2011, and just $1.5m last financial year. It’s tempting to say, “Wow! That seems good”.
Last week I attended a lecture given by a nephrologist (kidney specialist) who has retired because she was denied funds to research fully the correlation between kidney failure and vaccination. She has repeatedly seen drops in renal (kidney) function after vaccination for the ‘flu’ and pneumonia (that is a required essential for all people being admitted to many hospitals in the USA).
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told us in February that the 2012-2013 ‘flu’ season vaccine reduced the risk of ‘flu’-associated medical visits from flu A (H3N2) viruses by one half and from flu B viruses by two-thirds for most of the population. However, in the fine print you read VE (vaccine effectiveness) was estimated as 47% against influenza A (H3N2) virus infections and 67% against B virus infections and also that ‘A’ and ‘B’ were not the most prevalent viruses!!
Avoid the Immune System Busters - for me, the most important thing is to support and strengthen my immune system.
Other reports say that flu A (H3N2) and flu B viruses were not the common ones and the commonest ‘flu’ (which the CDC called a ‘flulike illness’) was actually another major virus that the ‘flu’ jab did not cover. That’s why people who had a jab still got the ‘flu’. Opinions vary. Dr. Mike Godfrey, a former director of a Bay of Plenty health clinic who hung up his stethoscope four years ago was reported in the NZ Herald as saying that research conducted by the respected Cochrane Collaboration and the CDC has convinced him the ‘flu’ vaccine is “useless”. In his retirement Dr. Mike is growing berries known to support the immune system.
2. Being overweight: increases the risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Excess fat cells adversely affect your immune system. They trigger the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the body, leading to chronic inflammation. When the inflammation is ongoing, healthy tissues get damaged. Mice studies also show that overweight mice make fewer antibodies after receiving common vaccinations. Antibodies are a measured immune response to vaccination.
1. Lack of exercise: Non-exercisers have more infections like colds - compared to those who exercise. The inactive also have poorer sleep quality and more obesity. Moderate, regular exercise, like a daily 30 minute walk, increases the level of blood leukocytes, an immune system cell that fights infection.
3. Eating foods high in sugar and fat: Sugar suppresses immune system cells responsible for attacking bacteria by about 40 percent.
year students who were lonely had a weaker immune response to a ‘flu’ vaccine than those who felt connected to others. Do the positive Immunity Builders: 1. Regular exercise increases the blood level of leukocytes, an immune system cell that fights infection.
It begins within 30 minutes of ingestion and last for up to 5 hours. Less than 100 grams of a sugar solution reduces the ability of white blood cells to overpower and destroy bacteria. (says the Environmental Law Centre UK). Remember it’s for several hours after a sugary drink you see this effect (and you increase you diabetes risk by 20% with just one can/day.
2. Get more antioxidants into your diet, which with vitamins and phytonutrients boost immunity & neutralize free radicals. The top antioxidants are in coloured fruits and vegetables, including berries, citrus fruits, kiwi fruit, apples, red grapes, kale, onions, spinach, sweet potatoes, and carrots. They are also in Tré, Carotenoid Complex, Flavonoid Complex, Cruciferous Plus, and NeoLife’s Vitamin E, Vit C, Vit A, Zinc and Multi-min. Elderberry, found in Tré protected against the 1918 ‘flu’ epidemic.

Helping Children Grieve in a Healthy Way An article by Parijat Wismer Principal Kinesiology Schools Australia Byron Bay Campus , first published in “Informed Voice” 2005
Parents want to protect children from pain and suffering. However, when a loved one dies, parents, close friends and acquaintances are often at a loss as to how to handle this loss and what to say to a child.

It may be our discomfort and difficulty facing our own pain that prevents us from being able to be present with our children. There is not a right or wrong way to mourn, it is a very personal experience.

The teenager tested as having nightmares. no willingness to get better on a subconscious level. When we explored it, she blamed herself “We lost her, she’s gone away”. Child: “Maybe for the death of her Nana, who had died we will find her or she’ll come back if I’m a many months earlier. Once we uncovered good girl.” the misunderstandings and allowed her to be vulnerable, feel and talk about it, the healing “At least she is at peace now”. Child: “It must could begin. She hadn’t cried and the family be my fault, I’ve been fighting with her. If I was was in so much pain at the time, that nobody a better person, she would not have died…” had noticed or been able to give attention to the enormous distress this girl experienced. It is easy to see how many misunderstandings happen unintentionally. Sometimes supporting a child during grief is too big a demand of a parent who is also Accessing the buried traumas with grieving.

A young man I met through my work blamed himself for the suicide of a classmate at high school. Several years later, he suffered from low vitality and depression. No drug therapy would have initiated a healing process. At the time of the death, he just closed up and became withdrawn. When he consulted me, he didn’t have conscious access to the hidden pain and emotional cause for his depression. What can you do? Be lovingly present and open. Allow a child to grieve in a supportive environment. This will support emotional growth through learning how to deal with intense emotional experiences and can prevent illnesses and dysfunctions many years later.

KSA Graduate Spotlight Maria Brady How did you come to study Kinesiology?
Tell us about your business?
Back in 2005 I decided that I would go and fulfil my long standing dream, of becoming a Counsellor, as I loved helping others. People seemed to be drawn to me and told me all of their issues and problems. Of course I had many issues and problems myself at the time! Whilst I was in the middle of study, I looked at what I was learning and felt that there was still something missing. I was not sure what it was and so I went on a seeking adventure. It was about August or September of that year, when I stumbled upon (now I know that there are NO accidents!) an advertisement for the “Living Now” Festival. I thought that if I go there I just might find what I was looking for. It might have been Naturopathy, Homeopathy?
In September 2012 I officially launched my very own Mind & Body Centre, in Cleveland. This had been my dream for many years and it is now a reality that I love living each and every day. My dream has always been to provide 110% customer service to my clients. My centre is like walking into an Asian Day Spa. The clients love the ‘experience’ of feeling pampered each and every time they enter the doors. Their journey begins by sitting in the beautiful “Tranquillity Room” with Asian furniture, overlooking a tasteful wall of bamboo, plants and a water feature, and so much more! My dream is also to provide a one stop shop, where my clients can be pampered with quality practitioners, from other modalities, within my centre.
When I got to the Festival, I walked in the main doors and saw, in front of me: massage tables; How do you help people in your Centre? charts; and a man doing this strange thing to someone’s arm? I looked at the sign and To put it into a nutshell, I help them realise their couldn’t even say the word, I saw, before me. own true potential, worth and empower them to listen to their own intuition.

A great weekend was had by all as Dr Dewe and Jenne Burns shared experiences from their medical days in various hospitals, clinics and situations with a group of kinesiology students in Melbourne. Red Flags is about staying within the boundaries of safe clinical practice, and helps the Natural Health Practitioner to recognise medical conditions that need to be referred to a medical practitioner or sent to hospital. Having the easy to follow flow charts is a great asset to all those in Natural Therapies and adds to the knowledge at our fingertips. Thank you Dr Dewe for making this available to KSA. As members of the Health Industry, kinesiologists need to develop an understanding of the assessment routine, diagnostic process and treatment implementation used in conventional Medical Practice as well as most Natural Therapies and Traditional Health and Healing Modalities. Red Flags will be presented in Byron Bay early 2014 so stay tuned for the dates.
Case Study: Behavioural Problems Jenne Burns, Principal Kinesiology Schools Australia Narre Warren Campus
First session: 3/4/2013 History MM is a 10 year old boy who presented with his mother. His mother told me that he has core muscle weakness, anxiety, is always hot and sleeps with the bedroom fan on 3, as he likes the breeze on his face. He has a habit of licking his fingers and when his anxiety is increased he licks all the way up to his elbows. Sometimes when sitting quietly watching the TV he licks his fingers and arms.

His hands were tightly clenched and the fingers jerked and moved constantly in jerky and spasmodic movements even when not writing, so I focused the session on his arm and hand muscles. We started with his Supraspinatus muscles, which needed correction. We did the corrections NE and NV and traced the meridian, while he spoke to me about his cheerfulness and lack thereof, how he found it hard making true friends and he did not like the other kids at school because they picked on him. For the last couple of years he has had several close mates. He still has one who can fluctuate between being a friend and bullying MM.
When MM was 4 years old the family moved from England to Australia. MM was a bubbly happy child. He became introverted at school where he was bullied. He changed schools after the bullying became physical. At the new school MM was in a class with a behaviourally challenged child and this appeared to trigger Then the sustained finger mode showed the licking of fingers and arms. so we corrected this with NL’s.

Conclusion: I am very happy with the results of MM’s sessions, as is MM and his parents. His hand writing improved dramatically, and his nervous cough, twisting and jerking hands and fingers have eased. I chose to present this as a case study because it demonstrates how results can be significant after only one or two sessions. I am continually impressed at the impact Kinesiology can have on any situation presented. 19

finally reaching a page headed “Nausea and Vomiting”. I have never given much thought about the concept of vomiting and as unpleasant as the experience can be, I have always felt great relief at its completion, certain that whatever was bad within, was now out! Nausea on the other hand has often been on my mind. I have experienced it many times; during my three pregnancies, following a particularly indulgent feast on occasion and sometimes having that feeling without even knowing why.
So when I saw that we were addressing this topic, I thought finally the mysteries of nausea would be unlocked. That said,Dr. As part of my final year studying for the Dewe’s response to my question wasn’t what Postgraduate Diploma in Kinesiopractic® at I expected. Kinesiology Connection, I was most fortunate to experience a week-end of study with Dr He simply asked me to write a 250 word Bruce Dewe and Jenny Burns, co-presenting summary on nausea.

So what is nausea? Simply put, it is the sensation of the stomach wanting to empty Over the course of the week-end we proceeded itself which may or may not be followed by to work our way through the flow charts, vomiting. It is symptomatic of many different conditions including: Gastrointestinal Causes: - Food allergies / Intolerances - Food poisoning - Gall stones - Gastritis / Viral gastroenteritis - Reflux - Hiatal Hernia - Irritable bowel - Peptic Ulcer - Over eating - Eating a high fat meal - Infections 20
Other Causes: - Motion sickness - Vertigo - Concussion - Pregnancy - Anxiety / Fear / Stress - Electrolyte imbalance - Diabetes - Cancer Treatments ie chemotherapy / radiation - Heat exhaustion - Side effects of medications - Migraine - Exposure to smoke/ toxic fumes Life Threatening Causes: - Appendicitis - Bowel obstruction - Brain haemorrhage - Heart attach - Kidney failure - Liver failure - Poisoning - Sepsis The causes of nausea are many and varied as it is multifactorial and is dependent on its specific aetiology. Nausea may be a response to the bodyâ€™s need for sodium bicarbonate to prevent against the damage of increased acid.
to buffer acid levels there, leaving a residue of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. It is this increased level of hydrochloric acid that is one of the causes of nausea. As we have seen there are of course other causes of nausea. We respond to the world and our environment with emotions, each emotion enlists a complex physical response in our bodies. When we experience fury or anger, for example, our heart rate increases, our blood pressure rises, adrenalin flows, cheeks become flushed, facial expressions change and muscles become ridged. The physiological and neuroendocrine changes associated with experiencing emotions influence all aspects of our body, including the digestive system producing gastrointestinal distress. One of these symptoms can be nausea. So what can be done about it? There is certainly not a one size fits all relief and luckily for us we can draw on our Kinesiology modes to access deeper issues. On a personal level, as strange as it seems I have found that last thing you actually feel like doing is the best solution, eating! Sucking on a lolly like barley sugar has taken the edge off for me by relieving the intensity of the symptoms. Also applying pressure to the Neuro Emotional points for stomach worked in the same manner.
The main organ that produces sodium bicarbonate is the stomach, which produces it by drawing sodium, chloride, carbon dioxide and water from the blood to increase stomach alkalinity. When the stomach produces sodium bicarbonate it is absorbed back into the blood Useful remedies include nutritional solutions such as; Ginger & Wild Yam root = found in GNLD Feminine Herbal Complex, B Complex and Peppermint. Other non-nutritional remedies include applying a heat pack, ensuring the person is well hydrated and stimulating the Neuro Vascular, Neuro Emotional or Neuro Lymphatic reflex points for Stomach. The topic of nausea is certainly a perplexing one. There is no one simple solution but the good news is that there are many options to help alleviate the symptoms. 21
Effects of Farming & Cooking Methods on the Nutrients in Our Foods Kylie Evans, Professional Kinesiology Practitioner, Brisbane Campus
With the increase of chronic disease in the 21st century it is important to consider the impacts that farming and food processing have on the nutrition of the foods we are eating. These influences can affect the available nutrients, and affect our health in negative and positive ways. In the 21st century a new group of nutrients called antioxidants, including vitamin C, is being studied due to increased interest in nutrition, fitness and beauty (Kaur & Kapoor 2001). Antioxidants and Health Free radicals cause oxidative stress in the body, causing altered DNA, RNA, proteins, impaired cell function and inflammatory responses contributing to cell damage, disease progression and aging (Rolfes et al. 2009). Environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides create free radicals in the body, as do some normal metabolic and immune system processes (Kaur & Kapoor 2001).
including acting as an antioxidant, a cofactor in the synthesis of collagen, aiding in absorption of iron, modulating neurotransmitters and the immune system (Ball 2004). Through these actions Vitamin C (and its reduced form ascorbic acid) has been shown to lower the risk of a number of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, eye diseases and neurodegenerative diseases (Jacob & Sotoudeh 2002). Biodynamic Farming vs Conventional Farming Biodynamic farming is an organic system with additional requirements based on preparations indicated by Rudolf Steiner (Australian Government 2009) and involves a holistic perception of Nature (Demeter 2012).
Organic farming, encompassing biodynamic farming, prohibits the use of chemicals, and therefore little to no chemical residue is found in organically grown foods. This has been found to be the main reason people choose Oxidative stress has been associated in organic foods over conventionally grown many chronic disease including cancers, (Bourn & Prescott 2002). cardiovascular disease (Korus & Lisiewska 2011), atherosclerosis, inflammatory conditions Biodynamically grown food has been shown (Young & Woodside 2001), cataracts, to contain greater antioxidant activity than rheumatism, aging and auto-immune diseases conventional (Dâ€™Evoli et al. 2010). Dâ€™Evoli et (Kaur & Kapoor 2001). al. (2010) found that biodynamic strawberries synthesize more pytochemicals and contain Antioxidants neutralise free radicals by more bioactive antioxidant molecules donating electrons to the free radical (Rolfes (measured by trolox equivalent (TE)), et al. 2009) and are found in fruits and anthocyanidins, ellagic acid, and flavanoids vegetables with phenolic flavanoids, lycopene, than conventional strawberries, see Tables 1 carotenoids and glucosinolates being the most and 2. This could be related to the increased studied (Kaur & Kapoor 2001). use of compost in biodynamic farming and/or the use of herbicides that block the synthesis of Vitamin C and Health phenolic compounds in conventional farming (Dâ€™Evoli et al. 2010). Vitamin C has many actions in the body, 22

D’Evoli et al. (2010) also found the levels of ascorbic acid to be higher in the biodynamically grown strawberries (Table 2) and attributes this to the biodynamic compost used that is rich in organic nitrogen. Heimler et al. (2011) studied the polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of Batlavia lettuce. They found that the yield was higher in conventional farming, but the polyphenol and antiradical activity was higher in the biodynamically grown lettuce. Table 3 shows a summary of the results.

Including the fact that biodynamic vegetables biodynamic farms that also influences people’s contain more antioxidants and vitamin C than preference to biodynamic over conventional conventional farming, it is the sustainability, farming (Garcia et al. 1989). mineral nutrition and quality of the soils of 23
Raw vs Cooked Vegetables The preparation of a food can also have an effect on antioxidants, the concentration of and bioavailability of antioxidants can either be increased or decreased by cooking and depending on the particular vegetable (Pellegrini et al. 2009). Vitamin C can also be easily lost in cooking because it is a water-
soluable vitamin and is lost in the cooking water when boiling (Haas 2006). A comparison of the total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of vegetables was conducted by Pellegrini et al. (2009) which showed that TAC depended on the method of cooking, a summary of the results can be seen in Table 4.
Table 4: Effect of different cooking methods on vegetable total antioxidant capacity values measured by Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC), ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) and total radical-trapping antioxidant parameter (TRAP) assays (Pellegrini et al. 2009).
In comparing raw to boiled it was shown that boiling artichoke, beets, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, chicory, green beans and potato increased the TAC. Whilst the TAC was decreased in asparagus, carrots, corgettes, spinach and turnip tops. It was generally seen that vegetables belonging to the Brassica family increased in antioxidant capacity after boiling (Pellegrini et al. 2009). A study of the antioxidant compounds in raw, blanched and cooked kale found that the antioxidant activity of raw kale was significantly higher than blanched or cooked kale. Blanched kale retained more antioxidants than cooked (Korus & Lisiewska 2011). Somsub et al. (2008) conducted a comparative study on the vitamin C content after cooking and found that in all vegetable samples that the vitamin C content was dramatically decreased in all samples that were boiled. To retain the most vitamin C content in cooking it have been found that steaming is the best, as the vegetables aren’t immersed in the water while cooking (Haas 2006; Somsub et al. 2008; Vallejo et al. 2002).
vitamin C it would be recommended to eat foods rich in vitamin C either raw, blanched or steamed. The nutrition of the foods we eat are influenced by how it was farmed and the methods by which it was prepared. Biodynamic farming provides vegetables that may be higher in antioxidants and vitamin C and lower in pesticide residue than conventional farming. Cooking of vegetables can either increase or decrease the availability of antioxidants, though cooking generally decreases the vitamin C content. Making informed decisions on how we prepare our foods, and where they come from can help to prevent chronic health conditions in the 21st century.
This variability between vegetables may have something to do with the nutrients in the food and whether it is available to be used. Carotanoids in particular are increased in foods that are cooked, for example the lycopene, β-carotene and α-tocopherol content of tomatoes has been shown to increase significantly after oven baking at 160° for 20 mins (Hwang et al. 2012). Certain foods, such as legumes, have been found to need to be cooked to removed antinutrients, such as α-galactosides, trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitors, phytates, lectins and polyphenols which inhibit trypsin, chymotrypsin and reduce the availability of minerals like copper, zinc, cobalt, manganese, iron and calcium (Satya et al. 2010). Therefore, when deciding if it is best to eat vegetables raw or cooked for their antioxidant content each vegetable needs to be considered individually. To obtain the highest amounts of
muscles form a musculotendinous ‘cuff’ around the head of the humerus, enforcing joint security. Especially effective during robust shoulder movements, they permit the major movers of the joint to work without risking joint dislocation.
Supraspinatus Jenne Burns, Principal Kinesiology Schools Australia Narre Warren Campus
One of the most important muscles for kinesiologists to check is the Supraspinatus muscle as it is the indicator muscle we use in accessing the brain. Supra means above and spinatus refers to the spinous process, so the location of the muscle is above the spinous process of the shoulder blade. It is also a muscle commonly involved in shoulder problems. The supraspinatus is a thick triangular muscle that occupies the whole of the supraspinous fossa, arising from its lateral 2/3rds and from a strong fascia which covers the muscle and completes the osteo fibrous sheath in which it is enclosed. From these points the muscular fibres converge to a tendon, which passes across the capsular ligament of the shoulder joint which it is in close contact with, and is inserted into the highest of the three facets on the great tuberosity of the humerus. The socket at the glenohumeral joint (glenoid fossa) is too shallow to offer any bony security for the head of the humerus. As ligaments would severely limit joint movement, muscle tension must be employed to pull the humeral head into the shallow scapular socket during shoulder movements. Four muscles fulfil this function – the supraspinatus, along with infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis (SITS). These 26
The SITS muscles have come to be known as the rotator cuff muscles even though the supraspinatus, (along with the deltoids) is an abductor of the shoulder joint and not a rotator. Indeed among some health care providers, supraspinatus is known as the “rotator cuff’ in the context of a “rotator cuff tear.” As the supraspinatus muscle is part of the shoulder girdle and as such supports it, also test and correct infraspinatus, and teres minor, subclavius and subscapularis, the deltoids, upper and middle trapezius, pectoralis major clavicular and pectoralis major sternal. The shoulder joint and the supraspinatus muscle/tendon are subject to early degeneration from overuse. The problem is generally one of chronic physical contact and friction, known as impingement, between the acromion, the coracoacromial ligament and the distal clavicle above, and the tendon of supraspinatus and the subacromial bursa below. Those with a down turned acromion or a previously dislocated offset acromioclavicular joint are especially vulnerable to supraspinatus tendonitis and subsequent tearing, subacromial bursitis, limitation of shoulder motion, and pain. All overhead activities such as those of professional curtain and blind hangers, ceiling plasterers, and bowlers at cricket, and acromial loading such as hose carrying firemen, and those carrying heavy bags by straps over the shoulder, pursued over a long period can induce changes like bony spurring, and bursal destruction with impingement signs and symptoms. To test the supraspinatus muscle the client holds a straight arm outward and forward 15 degrees each way, palm facing the groin. This can be done sitting standing or lying. The Kinesiologist applies pressure to move the lower arm inwards towards the groin. Stabilise

Hyperton-X Kinesiology Course With Danny Liddell Friday July 26th 6-9pm & Saturday July 27th—Sunday July 28th 9am—5pm
Hyperton-X is a form of Kinesiology that specialises in 6 main areas by releasing the excess (hyper) tension (tonic) in muscles: • Flexibility • Learning Difficulties • Emotional Trauma • Sports (performance & injury recovery) • Pain Relief • Allergies
Kinesiology uses the muscles like a keyboard on a computer, to gather the information from the many programs that make us magnificent humans work the way we do. We can then change, delete or add new programs to improve its efficiency. All techniques are simple, safe and effective. This course teaches how to correct imbalances and emotions that affect pain, allergies, the way we learn, play sport and recover from injury. All techniques are easy to learn and even easier to use. Hyperton-X is designed for people with no previous experience in Kinesiology or health. It can be used for family and friends, sports clubs and is even used by professional health care practitioners. 27

The Earth Element The Earth Element metaphor corresponds to the foundations, the ground, the soil, the dirt. The Earth element is associated with the Season of Late Summer, and is said to be a time of transition not only between Summer and Autumn, but also between each of the seasons.
In your current phase of change, do you feel like you have enough roots to nourish your growth and enough stability to give form to your dreams? Do you feel like you have your feet on the ground or do you need to be more grounded and centered? The Stomach Meridian function involves receiving potential nutrients and initiating the digestive functions. The 35 million cells in the stomach have multiple functions. The Stomach Function involves taking in new materials and new ideas, mixing them and temporarily storing them for further assimilation. The Stomach Meridian is particularly associated with the mouth as the beginning of the digestive system, but must necessarily involve the sense of smell, vision, etc. As it is often said, digestion truly begins in the brain and the Stomach Function has a strong mental/emotional component as well as a dietary component. We come into first contact with potential nutrients and new ideas through what we see, smell or hear and digestion occurs best when it involves a full appreciation with the five senses.
