Diploma in Kinesiology - Unit Descriptions

The following units cover all required competencies of the HLT07 Health Training Package
Diploma in Kinesiology
course number HLT52415:


Mastery of Emotional Stress Release
This unit develops skills to defuse a variety of emotional stress issues including active listening, challenges to authority and terminating a relationship – and more importantly how and when to use each one. 


Lifestyle and Dietary Modification
Students learn Kinesiology techniques relating to dietary habits and lifestyle and how to identify nutritional excess and deficiencies - and when clients benefit by adding or deleting nutritional supplements. 

ECO301  Adrenal, Geopathic and Life Energy
 The purpose of this unit is to develop skill and understanding in using Kinesiology techniques to increase energy, vitality and high  level wellness


Immune Mismatch Responses, Allergies and Hypersensitivities
Continuing on from where BKP108 left off, students learn various sensitivity techniques to identify and balance stressful foods and substances (allergies and reactions). Today these are becoming an epidemic in our society. Learn how to effectively balance such issues.


TMJ and Cranials
Headaches and migraines are just two symptoms caused by jaw and cranial problems. Here students reset these imbalances, bringing relief and relaxation.


Muscle and Skin Activation
Students develop skills and understanding in identifying and correcting meridian energy imbalances related to muscle circuits, skin, scars, blood chemistry, thymus and spleen energy. This variety of techniques covers a number of key areas, a unique part of the program.\


Shoulder, Elbow, Hand Muscle Protocol
Students learn testing and correction techniques to release pain, increase the function and performance of shoulders, arms, hands and fingers. Many of us already know people suffering from pain and MST202 and MST203 are important units to effectively resolve these pains.


Hip, Leg and Foot Muscles
Students learn testing and correction techniques to release pain, increase the function and performance of the pelvis (hips), legs, knees and feet.


Basic Brain Integration Skills
Learning difficulties are a topic of ongoing discussion. Professional Kinesiology Practice is a wonderful tool to both adults and children with these problems. This unit teaches techniques related to neurological blind spots caused by fear, pain, self-doubt re. learning difficulties and dyslexia.


Flower Essences – Vibrational Frequencies
Flower essences open up a whole new world to students. Through flower essences students gain new perceptions and insights, and how to identify and utilize the healing properties with clients in order to re-balance their energy on many different levels.


Subconscious Self-Perception
Students completing this unit will be able to identify and resolve excesses of supplements, drugs or medications, foreign chemicals, overgrowths, bacteria, viruses, parasites or heavy metals using physiology processes, biochemical pathways and detoxification processes. 


Advanced tools: Vibrational Energy Fields
Continuing from VEF201 students learn about the healing powers of a variety of powerful vibrational healing systems such as gems, tissue salts and homeopathics and their use within Kinesiology. 


Metaphysical Energy Fields
Students in this unit will learn how to evaluate and correct various energy fields such as chakras and the auric fields that are vital to our health and how we perform. 


Ligaments and Joints
This unit teaches advanced techniques so students can work effectively with ligament and joint injuries affecting so many people. Many people ‘put up’ with pain simply because they don’t know how they can be helped. JAF301 and JAF302 are the answer to many of these problems.


Head, Neck and Trunk Protocol
The variety of muscles learnt in this unit helps students fine tune areas that most other practitioners wouldn’t even know where to start. These are muscles of the face, eyes, throat, tongue upper neck and the small back muscles.


Nutrition (home study unit)
This home study unit teaches students the importance of vitamins and minerals, their use, source, function, body demand, signs of deficiency and toxicity and the safe range of dosage. Students will find the two assignments very interesting, and they will become a useful reference guide in their clinic.


Manage a Business (home study unit)
Graduates of the Diploma will be knowledgeable practitioners with the possibility of building a busy health practice. This home study unit teaches students how to manage and run their business, from stock control to holding and running a meeting, advertising and marketing.
