Educational Kinesiology grew out of Touch for Health, by a remedial teacher, Dr Paul Dennison. It not only uses Manual Muscle Testing but also assesses the client’s learning ability and coordination in relation to neurological integration.
When the client learns to integrate both the left and right hemispheres of the brain there can be often considerable positive changes in thinking and behaviours.
The techniques are used to clear stress and behavioural blocks to improve mental ability, especially for learning disorders, difficulties in concentration and information processing/recall.
The techniques are often known as Brain Gym and Whole-Brain Integration. Educational Kinesiology is used in many schools in Australia.
