History of Kinesiology.
Let us never forget that the objective of everything that we all do with kinesiology is to help people to get well and stay well. We are all on a unique journey and kinesiology is a wonderful vehicle to help us get on track and stay on track. Kinesiology can help to accelerate us in the original direction provided by designer.
So the focus of every article in this series is asking the question “where am I stuck in my journey and what do I need to do to get unstuck.” This stuckness can range from pain in the physical body, to anxiety, or just a general feeling of physical unwellness. It can include depression and apathy and a lack of drive as well as addiction, obsession and general mental unwellness. Remember, by divine design you have a blueprint for love, joy peace, prosperity and health. If you are not walking in these areas, then you can use kinesiology to can help you get back on track.
Kinesiology: Humble beginnings
So where did it all start? Back in the 1960s, a chiropractor called Dr George Goodhart made an observation. Hundreds of others had probably made in the same observation before, but Dr Goodhart saw something that no one else had seen. His intense curiosity to understand what he had just observed, lead him to discover the world of what we now call kinesiology and, as they say, the rest is history. Over many years Dr Goodhart developed Applied kinesiology, (https://icak.com/) also known as AK, which he taught to many chiropractors.
Kinesiology for you and me
One of the chiropractors that Dr Goodhart taught was Dr John Thie. Dr Thie immediately recognised the potential of this new system to help people to resolve their own health issues in their own homes. Against the wishes of the chiropractic association and his colleagues, Dr Thie developed and launched a system of kinesiology called ‘Touch for Health’ which has been taught all over the world and has been a blessing to hundreds of thousands of people. In fact it is ‘Touch for Health’ that has exposed most people to kinesiology and it is fair to say that most of the new forms of kinesiology developed from this platform.
