Optimum Health Balance - Susanne Lakin
Woodland View, Dixon Road, North Walsham, Norfolk NR28 9EA. Tel: 01692 407555, email@example.com
This course is specifically designed for any kinesiology students and therefore adopts a different emphasis from more conventional A and P courses
It takes place over 6 days (usually 3 weekends) and aims to promote an understanding of basic anatomy and physiology within the context of the holistic model of health and from the perspective of a kinesiologist. In addition to the more conventional ‘science’ it considers common physical problems and associated imbalances on all levels and includes techniques clients can use to help themselves retain balance.
The assessment is in 3 parts. It includes a personal journal, home study as well as a final assessment.
PKP – Professional Kinesiology Practice: home study A&P course
The purpose of this unit is to provide a simple, basic introduction to A&P and teach the use of medical terminology to communicate with clients, fellow workers and health professionals. The unit is a blend of two ASQA units: HLTAP401B and HLTCOM408D.
Those completing this unit will be able to describe in simple anatomical terms the respiratory, integumentary, urinary, cardiovascular, digestive, reproductive and nervous systems with special reference to the brain and special senses; describe the human skeleton and types of joints; explain muscle structure and describe the origin, insertion and action of major muscles of the body on a regional basis; use specific/medical terminology to communicate with clients, fellow workers and health professionals.
This home study unit has an assignment journal which will be assessed by an ICPKP Faculty member on completion, then the student sits an online assessment. Contact Denise Gurney to find out how to register at any time.
All students require to have access to an iPad or iPhone in order to complete the course.
Courses are ongoing. Guideline: 100 hrs study time.

This course is aimed at kinesiologists and will be carried out over three weekends with coursework to be completed in between at home. The aim is for it to be a fun and highly practical course to enable you to fully integrate your knowledge into your work and practice from day one. We will look at optimising the body's potential for wellbeing by creating movement within and encouraging an active role in the journey to balance and good health.

Helen McGuinness Health & Beauty Training
The Study book which was written by Helen covers the current NOS (National Occupational Standard) for the Health & Beauty industry as set out by Habia and therefore does not appertain specifically to one awarding body such asITEC. It is designed to be generic across all the levels (1 to 3) of the NOS and therefore relevant to qualifications that are based on the current NOS. Helen’s book has also been used for a number of years by colleges in the UK as part of their programmes
They are accredited by VTCT and cover the A&P with their students who are undertaking qualifications such as level 3 massage and have to have complete A&P at that level as part of the award.
They suggest on average 150hrs study and this A&P is for Level 3 only.
