1. Kinesiology: Gain Health Benefits And Self Awareness Through Kinesiology

The Kinesiology Course introduces students to the most popular of the variations and modalities of this natural therapy technique, explaining how they help.

You will be taught how to use gentle kinesiology-based exercises to gain health benefits and self-awareness for yourself, friends, and family members.

As the word ‘Kinesiology’ suggests, this practice is about the therapy and exploration of movement and mechanics within the body. Whether you have arrived at this page because you already have some knowledge of what kinesiology is and want to study it in more detail or you got here another way and have the burning question of ‘What is kinesiology?’, module 1 will bring clarity; exploring the therapy and how it fits in alongside general health. How it is used and practised as a physical treatment of movement, is discussed.

The 2nd module of the Kinesiology Course provides students with an understanding of the differences between health and ill health, or balance and lack of balance. This is done through briefly explaining the various systems of the body and physiological balance involved within them, which will help students understand the need for re-balancing, which is addressed later in the course.

In kinesiology, it is important to recognise the imbalance in the systems of the body, the main technique of doing so being muscle testing, which is explained in module 3. This module covers how to test for and recognise both general and specific imbalances, and also discusses variations within kinesiology.

A big factor in energy breakdowns of the body, is stress. The 4th module of the Kinesiology Course discusses this link and how muscle testing can identify and, working with other therapies, aid in the recovery of various stresses and their related symptoms.

The 5th module of the course focuses on the role of kinesiology in testing for various allergies, as well as informing students in how each allergy covered affects the body. Also discussed here, is the needs we have as humans along with how kinesiology can provide emotional release.

Having discussed what is possible with the physical muscle testing that is used alongside the other areas discussed in the course so far, the 6th module of the Kinesiology Course concentrates exclusively on this area. This teaches how to perform muscle tests and what can be done to realign any breakdowns in energy flow.

Kinesiology is strictly speaking, simply a name given to muscle testing, which can provide information to the practitioner about what treatment the client needs. Module 7 explains the various holistic health studies that can be partnered with kinesiology to create a focussed holistic practice. There are several areas that the muscle test can be combined with that will help to: physically re-align the body, make gentle changes or help with lifestyle changes, along with aiding treatment choices for physical injury. The therapies in each area are covered in this module.

The final module of the Kinesiology Course is all about how to use what you have learned from this course, along with your chosen specialism/s, to create a business. This covers the various areas that you will need to be aware of to build and run a successful business, and keep on top of personal development.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Kinesiology Course is suitable for anyone would like to learn about this natural, energy healing process and its techniques, whether this is your first taste of holistic therapy or if you have existing knowledge that you wish to add to.

The course also covers how to become a practising Holistic Kinesiologist, should students wish to take their studies further and start a career in this area.

2. Sports Massage Practitioner: Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This course is designed to take you from complete beginner to Sports Massage Practitioner and business owner. The course is also applicable to sportspersons and those already working in the sports industry who would like to broaden their skill set and gain more knowledge of the body and the benefits of sports massage. The skills and knowledge gained from the Sports Massage Practitioner Course would be useful to massage therapists looking to add additional treatments to their service offering.

3. Anatomy and Physiology: Take A Journey Through The Incredible Mass Of Cells That Is Your Body

The course begins by looking at the structural organisation of the whole body and the hierarchy of our body, from organism to atom, and how it maintains homeostasis, and therefore correct body function, through regulation of metabolism. You’ll learn about the building blocks of the human body – cells, and the various types of tissues they can form.

The largest organ of the body, the skin, has more functions than you may first consider. The Anatomy & Physiology Course explores these functions and how the skin is constructed, including in-depth information about the dermis. You’ll also learn some interesting facts about the hair and nails, and the various pathologies of these, and the skin.

206 bones make up the framework for your body, known as the skeletal system. You’ll learn the function of the skeleton, the various types of bones and the structure of bone itself, including how it grows and develops. The divisions and purposes of the skeletal system are explained and the structure, functions and various types of joints are examined, along with the muscles and tendons that support them. The muscular system is also covered, including the function and structure of the different types of attachments of muscles, how muscles contract, and the position and action of muscles.

From the moment an item of food enters the mouth a process begins by which it is processed, digested, the nutrients absorbed, and unused materials removed. The Anatomy & Physiology Course follows the journey it takes, examining how each organ in the digestive system plays its part.

Who would benefit from this course?

An incredibly comprehensive study of the human body, the Anatomy & Physiology Course can be used by those going into higher education in the fields of medicine and biology. Similarly, practitioners of complementary and alternative therapies, treatments, and medicines will be able to improve their techniques by increasing their knowledge through studying this course.

If you have ever wondered how this tool that you use every day of your life actually functions, this course has the answers. With an overview of each system of the body, in-depth breakdowns of the structures and functions of their component parts, and pathologies of each, you will understand how the body works and the problems that can occur within it.

4. Massage Therapist: Become A Massage Therapist

Massage has been used for centuries to heal, invigorate and relax the mind and body, reaching all the major organs as well as helping the muscles, bones and soft tissue to stay healthy.

Before you employ any techniques, this Massage Therapy course takes you through various parts of the anatomy and systems of the body, to give important knowledge about why massage is used and in what ways it is beneficial to the body, including which techniques to use for specific ailments. It also details best practices, how to recognise symptoms of various conditions, and how to treat specific clients, for example when it is safe to massage someone in pregnancy and which techniques to use and which to avoid.

The massage principle is simple: touch means stimulation. This means that wherever touch is used, the body reacts. Because of the changing landscape of the skin and the body parts it protects, differing levels of touch on the body elicit a range of responses; a soft stroke on the forearm may induce relaxation, but a deeper touch might help the blood vessels in the lower arm take blood back to the heart or stimulate and deepen blood flow to painful muscles.

You will learn how to create the right atmosphere for massage and how to conduct a session, to give the client a positive experience. This includes which oils to use for massage and how choosing specific oils can have positive effects on certain conditions of the client’s body and mind.

It then moves onto the practice of the subject; massage techniques and how to deploy them to various parts of the body, and how each treatment is beneficial. The course also takes you through specific massage applications, such as massage for sports and abdominal massage, as well as the benefits, and how to perform, hydrotherapy.

The course finishes off with some useful pointers and considerations for those looking to set up their own business.

Who would benefit from this course?

This is a comprehensive course that will take you from complete beginner to having all the knowledge you need to set up and practice as a Massage Therapist, along with giving a solid foundation for advanced study and further study into specific treatment areas. Alternatively you could use the information contained within the course to help friends and family, or learn with a partner, so you can both reap the benefits of massage.

About this Course

Familiarize Oneself with the Importance of Energy in our Bodies  - 5 Courses in this Bundle

  1. Kinesiology

  2. Sports Massage Practitioner

  3. Anatomy and Physiology

  4. Massage Therapist

  5. Full Body Massage

1. Kinesiology: Gain Health Benefits And Self Awareness Through Kinesiology

The Kinesiology Course introduces students to the most popular of the variations and modalities of this natural therapy technique, explaining how they help.

You will be taught how to use gentle kinesiology-based exercises to gain health benefits and self-awareness for yourself, friends, and family members.

As the word ‘Kinesiology’ suggests, this practice is about the therapy and exploration of movement and mechanics within the body. Whether you have arrived at this page because you already have some knowledge of what kinesiology is and want to study it in more detail or you got here another way and have the burning question of ‘What is kinesiology?’, module 1 will bring clarity; exploring the therapy and how it fits in alongside general health. How it is used and practised as a physical treatment of movement, is discussed.

The 2nd module of the Kinesiology Course provides students with an understanding of the differences between health and ill health, or balance and lack of balance. This is done through briefly explaining the various systems of the body and physiological balance involved within them, which will help students understand the need for re-balancing, which is addressed later in the course.

In kinesiology, it is important to recognise the imbalance in the systems of the body, the main technique of doing so being muscle testing, which is explained in module 3. This module covers how to test for and recognise both general and specific imbalances, and also discusses variations within kinesiology.

A big factor in energy breakdowns of the body, is stress. The 4th module of the Kinesiology Course discusses this link and how muscle testing can identify and, working with other therapies, aid in the recovery of various stresses and their related symptoms.

The 5th module of the course focuses on the role of kinesiology in testing for various allergies, as well as informing students in how each allergy covered affects the body. Also discussed here, is the needs we have as humans along with how kinesiology can provide emotional release.

Having discussed what is possible with the physical muscle testing that is used alongside the other areas discussed in the course so far, the 6th module of the Kinesiology Course concentrates exclusively on this area. This teaches how to perform muscle tests and what can be done to realign any breakdowns in energy flow.

Kinesiology is strictly speaking, simply a name given to muscle testing, which can provide information to the practitioner about what treatment the client needs. Module 7 explains the various holistic health studies that can be partnered with kinesiology to create a focussed holistic practice. There are several areas that the muscle test can be combined with that will help to: physically re-align the body, make gentle changes or help with lifestyle changes, along with aiding treatment choices for physical injury. The therapies in each area are covered in this module.

The final module of the Kinesiology Course is all about how to use what you have learned from this course, along with your chosen specialism/s, to create a business. This covers the various areas that you will need to be aware of to build and run a successful business, and keep on top of personal development.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Kinesiology Course is suitable for anyone would like to learn about this natural, energy healing process and its techniques, whether this is your first taste of holistic therapy or if you have existing knowledge that you wish to add to.

The course also covers how to become a practising Holistic Kinesiologist, should students wish to take their studies further and start a career in this area.

2. Sports Massage Practitioner: Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This course is designed to take you from complete beginner to Sports Massage Practitioner and business owner. The course is also applicable to sportspersons and those already working in the sports industry who would like to broaden their skill set and gain more knowledge of the body and the benefits of sports massage. The skills and knowledge gained from the Sports Massage Practitioner Course would be useful to massage therapists looking to add additional treatments to their service offering.

3. Anatomy and Physiology: Take A Journey Through The Incredible Mass Of Cells That Is Your Body

The course begins by looking at the structural organisation of the whole body and the hierarchy of our body, from organism to atom, and how it maintains homeostasis, and therefore correct body function, through regulation of metabolism. You’ll learn about the building blocks of the human body – cells, and the various types of tissues they can form.

The largest organ of the body, the skin, has more functions than you may first consider. The Anatomy & Physiology Course explores these functions and how the skin is constructed, including in-depth information about the dermis. You’ll also learn some interesting facts about the hair and nails, and the various pathologies of these, and the skin.

206 bones make up the framework for your body, known as the skeletal system. You’ll learn the function of the skeleton, the various types of bones and the structure of bone itself, including how it grows and develops. The divisions and purposes of the skeletal system are explained and the structure, functions and various types of joints are examined, along with the muscles and tendons that support them. The muscular system is also covered, including the function and structure of the different types of attachments of muscles, how muscles contract, and the position and action of muscles.

From the moment an item of food enters the mouth a process begins by which it is processed, digested, the nutrients absorbed, and unused materials removed. The Anatomy & Physiology Course follows the journey it takes, examining how each organ in the digestive system plays its part.

Who would benefit from this course?

An incredibly comprehensive study of the human body, the Anatomy & Physiology Course can be used by those going into higher education in the fields of medicine and biology. Similarly, practitioners of complementary and alternative therapies, treatments, and medicines will be able to improve their techniques by increasing their knowledge through studying this course.

If you have ever wondered how this tool that you use every day of your life actually functions, this course has the answers. With an overview of each system of the body, in-depth breakdowns of the structures and functions of their component parts, and pathologies of each, you will understand how the body works and the problems that can occur within it.

4. Massage Therapist: Become A Massage Therapist

Massage has been used for centuries to heal, invigorate and relax the mind and body, reaching all the major organs as well as helping the muscles, bones and soft tissue to stay healthy.

Before you employ any techniques, this Massage Therapy course takes you through various parts of the anatomy and systems of the body, to give important knowledge about why massage is used and in what ways it is beneficial to the body, including which techniques to use for specific ailments. It also details best practices, how to recognise symptoms of various conditions, and how to treat specific clients, for example when it is safe to massage someone in pregnancy and which techniques to use and which to avoid.

The massage principle is simple: touch means stimulation. This means that wherever touch is used, the body reacts. Because of the changing landscape of the skin and the body parts it protects, differing levels of touch on the body elicit a range of responses; a soft stroke on the forearm may induce relaxation, but a deeper touch might help the blood vessels in the lower arm take blood back to the heart or stimulate and deepen blood flow to painful muscles.

You will learn how to create the right atmosphere for massage and how to conduct a session, to give the client a positive experience. This includes which oils to use for massage and how choosing specific oils can have positive effects on certain conditions of the client’s body and mind.

It then moves onto the practice of the subject; massage techniques and how to deploy them to various parts of the body, and how each treatment is beneficial. The course also takes you through specific massage applications, such as massage for sports and abdominal massage, as well as the benefits, and how to perform, hydrotherapy.

The course finishes off with some useful pointers and considerations for those looking to set up their own business.

Who would benefit from this course?

This is a comprehensive course that will take you from complete beginner to having all the knowledge you need to set up and practice as a Massage Therapist, along with giving a solid foundation for advanced study and further study into specific treatment areas. Alternatively you could use the information contained within the course to help friends and family, or learn with a partner, so you can both reap the benefits of massage.
