of Health Kinesiology
Jimmy Scott Ph.D. started developing the Health Kinesiology System of Bio-Energetic Kinesiology in 1978. After earning his Ph.D. in Physiological Psychology at the University of North Carolina in 1966, Jimmy Scott went on to work for the University of California . He left his University career behind him in 1976 after becoming licensed as a Psychologist and started a professional practice doing biofeedback and relaxation training with clients.
working with clients, Jimmy Scott became more and more interested in what "health" really is. Clients told him how they were feeling more vitalized in ways not obviously related to what they were doing, and he began to analyze what factors
contributed to a sense of well-being. This led him into nutrition work and to train in Touch for Health as an instructor.
He read the papers published by Applied Kinesiology and started to use the kinesiology procedures to enhance his work. His practice became busier and busier but he began to puzzle over why he had to repeat procedures with some clients over and over again.
TRANSITION TO VERBAL TESTING
Comparative studies showed clearly that verbal testing provided more reliable information than finger modes, after the person had been balanced at the start of the session.
The big breakthrough he made was to
realise that all 'energy corrections' needed the points
held across the coupled meridians. Once he started
doing this the corrections held and clients started
to make lasting progress in their quest for well-being.
He also realised very early on that
the finger modes were inadequate to gain the depth
of information he wanted from his clients. By balancing
the body first he was able to get reliable information
from the client's body through verbal testing.
Jimmy Scott's goals were to develop the most effective, robust, permanent methods for change that he could, using his scientific analytic training. His scientific training enabled him to maintain a sceptical attitude, think clearly, evaluate all available facts, and to question anything not "scientifically proven."
With his new version of kinesiology he had a method to compare procedures and determine which of two or more approaches was best, not just whether a procedure "worked." He soon discovered that many commonly used techniques, although temporarily affecting energy, do not seem to have much lasting effect.
KINESIOLOGY AROUND THE WORLD
A summary of kinesiology acceptance and training
around the world.
North America - always more open to healthcare developments. K is taught at Universities across US and in Canada
In Europe , it is practiced fairly widely in Germany , Belgium , Ireland as well as in France and Holland.
Kinesiology is taught at University level in Germany and is recognised there as an integral part of general healthcare, so that it is covered by medical insurance.
KINESIOLOGY IN UK
There are several forms of kinesiology practiced in the UK
Most other kinesiologies still rely on finger modes to determine where the body's imbalances lie.
Health Kinesiology™ moved on from this method many years ago and now uses verbal questioning.
Health Kinesiology™ UK is now the largest and fastest growing of the various kinesiologies in UK.
