Confused with all the different Kinesiologies and how to identify which one is authentic and for you? In this blog we share the roots of TASK and break down what is Systematic Kinesiology.
Brian H. Butler (the founder of TASK and my father) began his training in Applied Kinesiology (AK) in 1975 with the founder George G. Goodheart, a chiropractor from Detroit, Michigan. Applied Kinesiology is the name used in the USA where only Chiropractors, Doctors and Acupuncturists are allowed to practice it
Brian Butler also trained with Dr. John Thie who created a system in the USA called ‘Touch for Health’ which was basic AK using muscle testing for the public to learn just for themselves, family and friends.
A different name other than Applied Kinesiology was needed for the UK and Europe
Since a different name was needed to be able to offer the techniques in the UK and Europe, Brain butler created the term ‘Systematic Kinesiology’, which he developed from both basic and advanced AK. He felt this term was appropriate as we work through the body in a systematic way which is reproducible.
Systematic Kinesiology (SK) includes the basic AK of Touch for Health together with the advanced Applied Kinesiology tests and techniques created by Dr. Goodheart.
Systematic Kinesiology is based on extensive tried and tested research.
SK is a natural health care system which uses gentle muscle testing to evaluate many functions of the body in the structural, nutritional, energetical and emotional realms. It’s a science and is based on extensive tried and tested research. Systematic kinesiology finds imbalances in the body and uses a series of techniques to bring the body back into balance.
Most other ‘Kinesiologies’ have taken parts of Systematic/Applied Kinesiology and use them separately or have taken SK/AK apart and created their own systems attempting to reinvent the wheel. Many schools have popped up all over the Country in the last few years offering all kinds of ‘kinesiology’.
Brain Butler founded TASK which was the first and is the largest, longest established school of Kinesiology in Europe.
With the original accreditation from the USA, Brian Butler developed, introduced and pioneered Systematic Kinesiology in the UK in 1976. In 1985 he founded The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology (TASK). TASK was the first and is the largest, longest established school of Kinesiology in Europe.
