The ICPKP International Certificate in Professional Kinesiology Practice provides the launching pad in your career as a PKP kinesiology practitioner.
The course covers in-depth the fundamental skills and knowledge of the Professional Kinesiology Practitioner. It consists of the full BKP series (BKP101-110) plus units on clinical body contact (RBT 201), advanced emotional stress release (EMS 201), First Aid (OCT 202 – taken externally) and Anatomy & Physiology (A&P 201). There are also several optional home study units on such topics as clinical practice management and communication skills which may be used to meet local requirements for health practitioners.
This workshop introduces you to three different kinds of easy to learn self-energiser trigger points (Neuro-Emotional, Neuro-Lymphatic, and Neuro-Vascular) and the powerful meridian energiser trace. As well, you will use walking gait reflexes, cross crawls self-integration, vision, and hearing energy techniques.
You will learn a simple emotional stress release technique and emotional trigger words. You will enjoy the energising power of a specific goal, and be able to perform a ‘time of day’ kinesiology energy balance for self-care using whole body testing. You will be able to identify basic anatomical parts and planes of the body and define kinesiology.
What you will learn in BKP 101™:
People completing this unit will be able to use muscle testing accurately and perform a Kinesiology energy balance on others. They will be able to identify dehydration, ionisation, neurological disorganisation (switching), central vessel integrity, and thymus energy imbalance.
They will be able to perform origin/insertion and spindle/golgi energy techniques, understand cautionary measures in evaluating body energy, apply pre- and post-evaluation procedures, demonstrate clear- circuit muscle testing and muscle facilitation/inhibition. They will know the bones of the skeleton.
This unit develops an elementary understanding of and skill in using basic 5-Element principles for energy balancing.
Those completing this unit will be able to demonstrate skill; apply sound, colour, food, emotional and vertebral balancing techniques; utilise circuit locating, and the challenge; use the 5-Element principle to perform an eight muscle energy balance and select the priority balancing procedure.
This unit introduces an understanding of the philosophy, principles, and history of Kinesiology; to extend the understanding of meridians and their related organ systems and to develop proficiency in a 14 muscle wheel energy balance.
Those completing this unit will be able to perform a 14 muscle goal balance and utilise the More and Priority modes. They will be able to work with surrogates, describe body movements in anatomical terms, and create a simple record of a client’s balance.
This unit extends the understanding of, and skill in using, the 5-Element principles and 5-Element emotions for energy balancing.
It develops understanding and facility in using alarm points, Luo points, acupressure holding points; to extend the range of meridian energy indicator muscle tests; demonstrate their surface anatomy and recognise the muscles’ action in sport and exercise.
Those completing this unit will be able to use the 5-Element principles, alarm points, Luo points, acupressure holding points, and the yin/yang principles to perform a 5-Element one-point goal balance.
The purpose of this unit is to develop professionalism, skill, and understanding in using Kinesiology techniques related to body contact.
Those completing this unit standard are able to: prepare for and establish clinical body contact; maintain clinical body contact, and cease body contact in a kinesiology setting; describe and demonstrate palpatory sense; use palpation to assess the client muscle state, and integrate palpatory findings into the management of the client in a kinesiology clinical practice setting.
This unit develops skill and understanding in the use of basic professional Kinesiology techniques.
Those who have completed this unit will be able to use effective listening skills to establish client rapport, use finger modes, Professional Kinesiology Practitioners’ database concept, simplified PKP protocol, age recession.
This unit develops skills in using Kinesiology techniques to reduce physical pain.
Those completing this unit will be able to pre- and post-evaluate pain levels on a standard scale and use emotional and postural stress release, meridian flow adjustment, muscle energy techniques, cross crawl exercise, figure-8, marine spiral energy, and food or supplements to reduce physical pain.
This unit extends an understanding of the development (philosophy and principles) of Kinesiology. It develops an understanding of the chain of life, the six stages of nutrition, food combining; the concept of biogenic, biostatic, biocidic substances; to construct a diet using 5-Element, food family, and food rotation principles; to develop skill in using C1 and ear acupoint sensitivity tests.
Those completing this unit will be able to use food to improve 5-Element energy, meridian, and muscle function to balance the body energy.
This unit develops skill and understanding in correcting reactivity in muscles and meridians with (and without) circuit retaining or reactive modes. To develop skills in observing postural imbalance; to extend techniques in balancing energy in muscles.
Those completing this unit will demonstrate muscle facilitation and inhibition; identify and correct muscle and meridian reactivity, evaluate posture, apply muscle stretch response, sustained muscle use, hidden muscle failure, specific circuit, and contralateral spindle techniques to improve posture and function.
To establish, utilise and update a client’s health record; communicate in a professional manner and set clear boundaries in a kinesiology practice; establish personal ethical behaviour and respect client’s rights in a health care context.
Those who have completed this unit will be able to describe professional health care relationships, set clear boundaries and communicate with both individuals and groups in a professional manner; function in an ethical manner’ respect the rights of clients and liaise with other health practitioners in a professional manner; apply client history to establish desired outcomes, maintain client rapport, facilitate client towards self-responsibility model, keep clinical records, make necessary referrals.
The purpose of this unit is to develop skill and understanding in the use of the frontal/occipital stress release technique including the application of active listening and role play.
Those who have completed this unit will be able to use basic frontal/occipital holding, assist the client: to find new resources, apply the video-rewrite method, brainstorm, make up new possibilities, use their senses and intuition, state what they are feeling, want and are willing to do to achieve this, with or without the use of imagery including but not limited to jewels, balloons, grounding rods, picture frames and symbolic encapsulation and the hypothesis of an older, wiser self, to enable the client to defuse stress related to but not limited to challenges to their authority and terminating a relationship within or without the context of active listening or role play.
Home Study Unit
This unit provides a simple, basic introduction to Anatomy and Physiology (160 hours) and teaches the use of medical terminology to communicate with clients, fellow workers and health professionals.
Those completing this unit will be able to describe in simple anatomical terms the respiratory, integumentary, urinary, cardiovascular, digestive, reproductive and nervous systems with special reference to the brain and special senses; describe the human skeleton and types of joints; explain muscle structure and describe the origin, insertion and action of major muscles of the body on a regional basis; use specific/medical terminology to communicate with clients, fellow workers and health professionals.
Elements of Learning:
Comprises 50 hours of supervised student clinic experience.
Students are required to have a minimum of 5 personal kinesiology sessions during the course.
Sessions must be taken with an RTO-approved ICPKP Diploma graduate.
This unit is not taught by your College. You are required to undertake First Aid and Resuscitation training and obtain a Red Cross, St Johns or similar certificate.
Please give your certificate to your College so they can credit you with this unit.
Important Note: To pass this unit you need to have taken your First Aid course within the last three years.
