Neuro linguistic kinesiology, or NLK, was developed by the kinesiologist, Wendy Bennett. NLK incorporates all of the traditional aspects of kinesiology along with a therapy called Neuro Linguistic Programming. The aim of NLK is to help a person to become aware of the changes that they require in a measurable and specific way. It is a way of improving performance in any areas of a person’s life and it is supported by a program that can be easily and effectively used at home or at work.
NLK uses the change work and communication skills that were developed by the founders of Neuro Linguistic Programming, and it was the first type of kinesiology to introduce the testing of the primitive and postural reflexes to facilitate improvement in learning skills.
Each NLK consultation is tailored to suit the unique needs of the client. The aim is to establish positive habits, discover and choose what is important to you, become aware of and then change self limiting beliefs and behaviours, create a life of awareness, and to experience emotional security.
Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed in 1975 by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. It is a powerful communication and change work technique and it is based on the language patterns of the family therapist, Virginia Satir, and the hypnotherapist, Milton Erickson. Neuro linguistic programming aims to explore the relationship between how a person thinks and communicates, and how they behave.
Kinesiology is the science of movement and it is one of the leading therapies for effective health and stress management. All types of kinesiology have their basis in muscle testing, and this testing is used to determine whether a situation, activity, memory, food, or substance is causing stress to the body or brain.
Techniques that are used in kinesiology include:
