Talking to my Dad (Brian Butler) recently we were discussing the origins and importance of keeping Systematic Kinesiology pure, yet at the same time, continually moving forward as we lead the way with SK. The origins of Systematic Kinesiology Systematic Kinesiology (SK) is Applied Kinesiology. However, when my Father (with the founders blessing) brought kinesiology over to the UK in 1976, they requested an alternative name to Applied Kinesiology as this was the term used in the USA. … [Read more...] about TASK – Leading the way since 1985
Autumn is here - although let’s not let our health fall. I was out running this morning and although we are still having beautiful sunshine filled days, the weather is turning and there was a nip in the air which actually felt lovely. It reminded me of cosying up in front of the fire, good films, family roast dinners and how the colder weather helps to keep nature in balance. As the season changes so do our bodies. We need warm food, root veggies, stews and soups to give our … [Read more...] about 7 tips to stay healthy this winter

I was asked recently what makes Kinesiology such an effective form of healthcare? There are many unique reasons why Kinesiology is so effective. One reason is the ability to identify the priority root causes and issues that give unpleasant symptoms within the body. We know this by using a technique called priority finger mode. What sets kinesiology apart from other complementary therapies? Through muscle testing, we are able to ascertain what is a priority for the body to have addressed and … [Read more...] about What is priority finger mode in kinesiology?
I've been busy rewriting the Foundation Course manuals with the help of the amazing Nora Zimerman Design Studio. Going through the manuals with a fine tooth comb is a huge job, but one great thing to come out of it (other than having completely up-to-date and great looking manuals) is how interlinked the body is and in ways that science has not caught up with yet. The solution for illness is often not where you think it is. Do you have random symptoms that Doctors can't work out? So many … [Read more...] about The solution for illness is often not where you think it is

Why are we obsessed with having more? I have seen emotional well-being take a dramatic nosedive over my career, particularly with young people. Life is faster than ever, pressured, overloaded, with constant noise and stimulation which can be overwhelming. Does it lead to inner happiness? The obsession with having more and more stuff NOW! Together with the 'all about me' attitude, which often starts from a very young age. Does not, in my opinion, lead to inner peace and 'real' happiness. … [Read more...] about The Importance Of Emotional Well-Being

As we are about to enter a time when we give and receive presents to loved ones it made me think about what we give and receive energetically within Kinesiology.

Do you recognise how much you give? Thoughts - Thoughts are energy and we are 100% concentrating on our clients wants and needs. In a session (and often … [Read more...] about Giving and Receiving for Kinesiologists
How we can support ourselves during pregnancy Last week I was asked about Kinesiology in pregnancy and birth and what role it plays, which lead me to write this post. When I was expecting I felt like I was doing a very special job as what could be more important than growing another human being? People say it’s easy because women have been doing it since time began. Well, women have been doing it since the beginning of time, although having had 5 pregnancies and been lucky enough to have … [Read more...] about Pregnancy and Kinesiology
Clearing emotional issues for balanced health It has often come to my attention how many of us separate our heads, minds and emotions from our bodies. Even those who 'know' they are totally entwined can often forget and overlook this truth. When dealing with and clearing emotional issues, we need to remember that emotions can and do get trapped in the cells of our body. Within Kinesiology we work on the emotions that are relevant to the weak muscle, organ or system which is incredibly … [Read more...] about Kinesiology and the emotional body
After seeing my teenagers back off to school on Monday, it reminded me of another reason of how lucky I am to have had Kinesiology as my career for the last 30 years.

How do you get Kinesiology clients? One of the questions I get asked a lot is "how do you get Kinesiology clients"? This is a subject we talk about and teach on our … [Read more...] about Gaining Kinesiology Clients and Business
The worst case of psoriasis I have ever seen The day before I went on holiday, I saw an emergency new client at my clinic in Epsom, whom I had met just days before. She had the worst case of psoriasis that I have ever seen. Whilst chatting to both her and her Mum, I learnt that she was just about to start methotrexate treatment on the NHS. Methotrexate is a chemotherapy medication sometimes used to treat skin conditions. According to Netdoctor it works "by preventing the excessive … [Read more...] about Psoriasis is more than a skin problem
Enough already! Life in 2017 can put a heavy load on our nervous system. Just getting out of bed each morning without any extra stresses piled on top can feel like enough. Add onto that; heating, lighting, air conditioning, aviation fuel, car and industry pollution, noise, population overload, continual electro magnetic disturbances, wifi and other radiation pollutants. Plus continual endocrine disrupting chemicals in food, toiletries and cleaning products and wow we begin to get a … [Read more...] about Balancing the nervous system with Kinesiology
