Foundation Level

Why enrol on this foundation course?

Kinesiology provides a unique method of finding out about health and well-being, through muscle testing. The foundation course enables you to understand the body and what it needs to return to balance, providing the opportunity for you to assist your friends, family and potentially clients, in their return to good health.

Those already in the health and well-being industry find their work elevated through the in-depth knowledge and understanding that they gain, as well as invaluable access to definitive answers through the muscle testing.

No other modality incorporates emotional, nutritional, chemical, structural, physical, meridians and other energetical systems in its all-encompassing holistic approach to allowing the body to recover its good health.

Kinesiology Association foundation level training

Our foundation courses are run around the UK by our qualified and accredited tutors. Our tutors have an Award in Education and Training (AET) or the equivalent and a minimum of 3 years as professional kinesiologists. They operate their own independent training schools but they all teach the same KA curriculum with the same core training materials.

Sue 1The foundation course consists of 90 hours of face-to-face training. In addition, you will be expected to undertake home study of approximately 1-2 hours per week, plus carry out 25 case study sessions. The foundation course is usually taught over 6 weekends but some tutors might offer alternative formats such as week days, or long weekends.

The KA training materials and syllabus underwent a complete review in 2020 so the KA foundation course offers the most up to date training in kinesiology. You will receive a thorough training in muscle testing and kinesiology techniques you can use safely and with confidence - on yourself, friends & family or clients (if you are already a health practitioner). There is a strong emphasis on practical work in our courses and you will workshop all the techniques you learn.
