3. Medicinal Therapies – Nutritional support, Food and Vitamin Testing
4. Manual Therapies – Tui Na, Mobilizations, Spinal Mechanics, Acupressure, Re-patterning, Moxibustion and Cupping.
5. Bioenergetic Therapies – Qi Gung Releases and Cranial Balancing.

The course covers aspects of applied classical Chinese massage, pre and post therapeutic muscle tests and treatment protocols, diagnosis using tests, palpation skills, and Traditional Chinese Medicine pulse & tongue diagnosis. Cranial evaluation and phobic response are also examined. Oriental Body Balance provides a unique opportunity to dramatically enhance your diagnostic and therapeutic skills.

What’s in the KORE Therapy course

Course Description

Module 1—Muscle & Lymphatic imbalance
Neurological Dysfunction: When a person is healthy, muscles function in a predictable manner. The loss of this neurological organisation of the muscles can lead to illness, injury and pain. Stimulation of specific points can quickly clear this muscular disorganisation and switch the mind onto maximum awareness and ability.
Muscle Testing: Evaluation of muscle strength and ability to diagnose structural imbalance, skeletal & ligament torsions and internal organ dysfunction.
Lymphatic Reflex Points: Located around the body, they have a direct impact on muscular stamina, weakness & recovery, immune system function and general health.
Chinese Meridian Flow: Lines of energy flowing around the body that have a direct influence on the flow of blood, body fluids, muscles and internal organs. Used in Acupuncture and Acupressure.

Module 2—Chinese Physical Therapy (Classical TUINA)
Chinese Medical Theory: 5000 years of Oriental medicine theories on the how and what makes the body work and how to diagnose its illness and injury.
Massage & Mobilisation: Traditional Oriental massage techniques that enhance muscle function, move blood & body fluid. Joint mobilisation techniques for ligament balance and correct muscle function.
Acupressure: Finger, knuckle & elbow stimulation & point location on the meridians for pain relief, muscle dysfunction, illness & internal disorders.
Muscle Tests: Adductors Trapezius Gluteus Max Abdominals
Module 3—Spinal Diagnosis & Repair
Spinal Theory: How the spine works and its dysfunctions.
Body Language: Observation and understanding spinal dysfunctions from movement.
Fixations: Diagnosing spinal fixations from muscle testing.
Muscle Tests: Challenging walking patterns, turning and twisting.
Sacrum & Occiput: How the two ends of the spine balance each other.
Sacral Float:: An energy technique to release ligament torsions in the spine and pelvis.
Module 4—Amno Fu & TCM Diagnostic Theory
Anmo Fu: Oil based deep massage on the abdomen. Often muscle weakness, body and emotional disorders are caused by internal organ dysfunction. This can be caused by torsions in the abdomen affecting normal peristaltic, blood & body fluid movements.
Muscle Tests: Biceps Triceps Sartorius Piriformis Rhomboids
Piriformis stretch: Called freeing off the dragons tail. As the Piriformis is involved in the body’s centre of gravity, it is often found to be under strain. This simple technique often frees spinal conditions and the whole pelvis in one go.
Anchoring: A technique that raises the body’s natural immune system awareness to the therapist’s diagnostic discoveries, dramatically boosting treatment impact and recovery times.
Sacral Fixation: Double leg mobilisation to release a fixation. Acupressure: Stimulation of meridian points for conditions affecting Stomach/Spleen, Liver/Gall Bladder, Kidney/Urinary Bladder, the pelvis and lower limbs.
Module 5—Body Balance Cupping & Moxibustion
The Body’s Centre of Gravity: How the sacrum and pelvic bowl is fundamental to every function in the body.
Challenging: By using a strong muscle, specific ligaments, joints and organs can be challenged (stretched, pushed and pulled) to help with a complete diagnosis of that particular problem area.
Ileocecal Valve: Located at the junction of small & large intestine, it has a dramatic impact on bowel conditions; IBS, diarrhoea etc, headaches and predicable muscle weakness leading to injury and back problems.
Shock Absorbency: Challenging ligament balance of the joints and spine to react to impact effects causing muscular pain, strain and injuries.
Muscle Tests: Quadratus Lumborum, Illiacus, Neck flexors & extensors, Popliteus
Cupping & Moxibustion: Glass jars are use as an aid to massage. By creating a vacuum the jars can be applied to the body where they stimulate blood & body fluid movement, muscular stimulation and internal organ function. Burning a herb over particular acupuncture points and injury sites to stimulate body functions and immune systems response.
Acupressure: Point locations & techniques for the upper limbs and shoulder complaints.
Module 6—Stress & Re-patterning
Stress: How the functions of stress affect the body, how its long-term effects cause disorders (bowels, muscles, sciatica etc).
Eyes-In-Distortion: How the eye position is related to physical and emotional trauma and its effect on muscular balance and performance.
Swish & Samato: Simple but dramatic techniques of releasing and removing the effects of stress on the body.
Emotional Stress Release: Acupressure points for calming and removing stress.
Re-patterning: A technique of resetting nervous, muscular and ligament balance of the body. Realigning sacro-iliac, the spine and dural torsion after trauma, disease and injury.

Module 7—Cranial Balancing
Cranial Balancing: The bones, connections and movements within a healthy body. How the cranial system impacts all functions of the body. 4 step standard Cranial/Sacral balancing techniques. Challenging the position of individual cranial bones, to assess their impact on particular conditions: snoring, sinus, back pain, TMJ imbalance and headaches. Adjusting and releasing the neck and spine from the head
Module 8—TCM Diagnosis & Food Intolerance Testing
Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis: Understanding the ancient Chinese theories of internal disturbance leading to a multitude of conditions by reading the tongue and feeling the pulse.
Diagnosis and Pathology: Comparing & evaluating typical conditions seen in OBB clinics, from both western and eastern views of disease and treatment
OBB Clinical Application: Putting your integrated medicine knowledge into practice on a variety of conditions. How to assess, apply treatment, future treatments protocol and personal advice.
Food Intolerance Testing: Understanding the concepts & procedures to test clients with an unlimited range of food & beverage that can be cause of weight gain, fatigue and illness.
Module 9—Qi Balance & Ligament Torsions
Qi Gung Therapy: Here we learn to use powerful energy techniques to release muscle & ligament spasm, bone torsions and organ dysfunction. We challenge for injuries and ligament strains in the joints before applying gentle releases. Utilising Qi from the universe we can generate healing potency as diagnosed for each individual.
