LifeTracking, Way of the Tracker, Perceptual BodyTracking, Body Orientated Interpersonal Skills and Perceptual Bodywork
Creative Kinesiology works with the whole person. All levels are addressed, body – mind – emotions – nutrition – energy systems – spirit – soul.
It was developed in the 1980s by Carrie Jost, with Haakon Lovell on Way of the Tracker and by Natalie Davenport for Perceptual BodyTracking. It is a way of building on the fundamentals of Touch for Health and other kinesiology systems. Creative Kinesiology’s approach is one of listening and witnessing, together with working deeply with energy, helping people to overcome deep seated emotional, physical and energetic patterns which may manifest in a variety of ways.
The practitioner and client work together to discover the triggers for healing that are most appropriate for the client, creating the conditions for the body to find its own way of healing. As such, practitioners work with Creative Kinesiology as a set of skills and as an art form, developing the sensitivity necessary to 'journey' alongside their clients.
At the heart of this approach is the knowledge that we are made up of our stories - that our life experiences contribute to who we are today. Not all of our past is helpful or supportive to life now, and by witnessing these stories and then releasing unwanted or unhelpful results of our life experiences (whatever they are), the body, mind and energy systems can be more able to find a new zest for life and full potential. By using gentle balancing techniques - guided by the innate wisdom of the client's energy system - the inner powers of healing and desire for health can be supported to help restore balance on all levels of the being.
