Educational Kinesiology





Educational Kinesiology:

Educational Kinesiology is an incredible system of work that allows us to move forward and reach our goals.  It reduces stress and allows us to shift more easily into the life we want to live.  Using the Brain Gym® activities with focused intention and attention, we create new patterns.

Our Story of Discovering Educational Kinesiology

    I discovered this powerful work when I was searching for answers to my son’s learning disability.  Reading was very difficult for him even though he was a GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) student from third grade on.  Every night I helped him with his homework.  He was extremely frustrated with it all.  I worked with every teacher to develop a plan--not only for his learning but also for keeping him focused in class. 

    By the time he was at the end of his freshman year in high school, I decided something must be done.  I called a meeting with all of his teachers to see if we could come up with a plan.  After explaining that I felt he was a kinesthetic learner, I asked for input.  They all said I needed to get him tested.  My response was “You want me to pay $500.00 to get him tested just so we can find out he is really smart but can’t read?  That is what we already know.  I want to know what we can do to help him.”

    From that day on, I began to discuss my concerns about my son with everyone I ran into.  Finally one woman suggested I call a friend of hers who lived in Colorado.  After an hour discussion, the friend suggested I call another woman in Montana.  This woman told me about Brain Gym®.  At this point, I was willing to try anything.

    I called the Educational Kinesiology Foundation in Ventura, CA, and was referred to a few local instructors.  After the first session (AKA a “balance”), my son came home amazed that the “words could flow like that.”  He had two balances and our lives changed.  I never did his homework with him again.  I also decided that this was meant to be my life’s work, so I got trained.  That was 18 years ago.  My son now has a Masters’ Degree, a successful career, and his own family.  He still uses Brain Gym® movements in his life. 

   Educational Kinesiology balances are powerful and fun.  People of all ages enjoy the experience and find they are able to be successful in areas that they once found difficult and frustrating.   I have worked with people from ages 3 to 80.  A 66 years old client of mine was very dyslexic and didn’t believe he could read.  After the first couple of balances, he began reading with ease.

   Educational Kinesiology is very powerful for shifting learning disabilities as it supports us to discover and learn in our own unique style.
