What is Educational Kinesiology?

Educational Kinesiology is a comprehensive mind/body integration programme that uses movement to enhance our abilities and confidence—in learning, sport, performing arts, communication, or whatever our personal challenges may be.  It helps us build and/or access better communication within mind and body.  It enables us to discover and enhance the physical skills of our own learning in a self-directed way.  It can be used equally effectively with children and adults. 

Kinesiologists use the tool of muscle checking to work with clients one to one. 

Educational Kinesiologists have completed the core training and are required to be registered with Educational Kinesiology (Brain Gym®) NZ inc.

There are 26 Brain Gym® movements, which are intentional movements to support everyday living, that can support individuals to improve their lives in terms of easier movement, posture,  sensory processing, lower stress levels and other physical tasks we perform on daily basis. It is suitable for young children all the way through to seniors.   Positive results may be observed and noticed by the individual in a short period of time after doing the movements. Longer lasting changes may result from regular practice of the movements.
