I use a combination of muscle testing based techniques to model the underlying subconscious structure of how we perceive the world within us.
Utilising a combination of Total Body Modification (TBM), a chiropractic non-adjusting modality, Functional Neuro-Physiological Integration (FNI), a subconscious modelling and correction technique and Psych-K Kinesiology address the psychological aspects of health. All three disciplines are interdependent. They don’t require each other; however, together, they greatly enhance treatment response.
This biodynamic practice offers unique insights and influence on how the living body functions, and I am continually surprised by its range of application and results. It seems that any information we perceive holds a value within each of us, and the importance of that information is readily testable using these techniques.
I completed a degree in Human Physiology and minor in Psychology in 1999, mechanical engineering in 1992 and general engineering in 1990 and continue to study critical areas of interest. I am also an accomplished multi-disciplinary engineer, manager, healthcare kinesiology practitioner, father and husband and lives in West Auckland, New Zealand, with his beautiful wife Annika and gorgeous son Max.
My interest in physical health and rehabilitation is a personal one. In 1988, I had a crippling lower back injury that ended my engineering career. I was left barely able to move at that time.
Surprisingly conventional medical treatment at the time was far from kind. It didn’t add a lot of support to my recovery. I was prescribed heavy painkillers that blocked some symptoms; however, they created others and reduced my brain to a clouded mush. The physical therapy only aggravated the injuries.
I decided to further my qualifications while as I was healing. I had to cut my medication and manage my pain without pharmaceutical assistance. I used to have to stand and work, only able to sit for short periods while studying. Typically, after a three-hour exam, I would often vomit from the pain and nausea. Needless to say, it took a lot of tenacity and commitment.
My healing journey started with a visit to a Chiropractor, who spoke of chiropractic health philosophy that resonated with me at our consultation. He promised me nothing other than an opportunity to optimise my body’s awareness. By improving the conduction of nerve activity up and down my body from brain to body and back again, thus allowing the body’s own innate intelligence to heal optimally, and that got me thinking!
I had experienced a lot of different modalities on this healing journey and found great assistance in each of them. I realised, though, like most of us, our needs are all unique. It was challenging finding a flexible system to mould to the person rather than the person moulding to the system.
I started re-developing unique and specific self-directed mental and exercises designed for pain relief and physical regeneration. Within six months, two and a half years from my original injury, I stood, sat, and moved pain-free and without restriction. A combined and balanced approach to my physiology, neurology and psycho-kinetics was the key to my recovery, and proper assistance was also vital.
After my injury in 1988, my passion for both engineering and natural health grew together. “As I progressed in my Engineering career, I was fascinated with parallels between mechanical, electrical and software engineering and human physiology, neurology and psychology.”
In 1996 I decided to follow my interest. I gained entry into the Chiropractic School program in Auckland, where I studied at Auckland University until completing my BSc degree in Human Physiology and minoring in Psychology. I learned and loved the chiropractic philosophy and principles it stands for. I remember someone saying….. You are your nervous system. If you could remove all the skin, bones and muscle, it is still you! Absolutely, more importantly, the energy that resides within our nervous system.
What about this energy working directly within us if one could learn how to change its values and perceptions and redirect it as many levels as possible. You can change and influence just about anything within the living systems.
Mix in the best practice in physical therapies and abracadabra. You have one effective system of permanent change. Well, that was my conclusion anyway! I pursued this bio-dynamic form of study and practice. I now work full time as an FNI / TBM / Psyche-K Kinesiologist in my own practice in West Auckland.
