Neuro Meridian Kinesiology

Abstract by:

Irmtraud Grosse-Lindemann and Earl Cook

Status: In Progress

Last Update: March 31, 2010


Note: Touch for Health is NOT used for the diagnosis or treatment of disease. The Touch for Health synthesis is similar to AP but does not include the diagnostic emphasis. The use of the Manual Muscle Test as a biofeedback mechanism for monitoring the state of energy in the muscle being tested is common to both models. The interpretation of the results are different since the only goal of the TFHer is to monitor and balance the muscle/meridian so that the body's innate healing capabilities can be enhanced and better posture achieved with a reduction in stress and pain.

Neuro Meridian Kinesiology (NMK) is based on the idea of Richard Utt of connecting Acupuncture Points with parts of the brain to monitor their proper functioning. NMK monitors kinesological balance and looks for the area of the brain that corresponds to stressors present in the human body and then provides a series of exercises that can be performed by the subject after a kinesiological balance to prevent reoccurance of problems. NMK focuses on the junction areas of the brain where the Subconscious, limbic (emotional) and logical/expressive centers of the brain communicate. Through the use of the Manual Muscle Test and NMK, specific areas of dysfunction in the brain can be identified and then focused upon for correction so that the signal processing and communication between these areas can be corrected.

NMK divides the brain into 16 distinct areas with corresponding specific points on the skin surface. NMK also determines the link between stress and the specific area of the brain where it is located.

Irmtraud Grosse-Lindemann is a teacher for mentally and physically handicapped children and works as a physical therapist (logapaedist) and natural health practicioner in Germany. After years of research, she developed the courses Neuro Meridian Kinestetik (NMK) 1-7. Out of her practical work in school and in her office she developed the course series: Successful Learning Despite Dyslexia and Co. She has also created the 3-year training for Kinesiological Counseling (Begleitende Kinesiologie IAK and the 1 ½ year training to become a Learning Coach.
