Scottish School of Advanced Kinesiology – Upcoming Courses

Kinesiology Course Dates for Edinburgh and the Borders are now available from the NEW Scottish School of Advanced Kinesiology.  Foundation, Intensive & Diploma Courses are all upcoming.

I am truly delighted to bring new Kinesiology courses to the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh.  I used to teach the Foundation course between 2001 and 2012.  During 2002 – 2004 I taught on each module of the Practitioner Course.  A few years ago I stopped as my clinic became really busy.  I didn’t feel like I could commit to students in the way I wanted to without stretching myself too thin.

Now in the second half of 2017 I made the conscious decision to return with Foundation Courses in 2018 and a Diploma Course to follow in 2018/19.


As a tutor for TASK (The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology) for a number of years, I taught Balanced Health Levels 1-4 and Levels 5&6.  I was invited to teach the Practitioner Course for several years with Stephanie Mills who was also one of my tutors when I trained.  I also taught for SAK (School of Advanced Kinesiology, founded by Sally Prestwich.  Sally was one of my tutors back in 2000 during the practitioner course).

When I mentioned to Sally that I was returning to teaching, she offered, without hesitation, to set up SSAK.  (School of Advanced Kinesiology).  It seemed to fit right in with my ideas so, here we are at this amazing time looking to the future.

I am honoured and grateful to the amazing tutors I have had in Kinesiology and hope to bring some of their special qualities as well as my own passion for Kinesiology when teaching you.

Learning Methods

Kinesiology is available to everyone, from complete beginners to practitioners already advanced in the Healthcare field.  In class I combine:

  • Presentation
  • Explanation
  • Demonstration
  • Observation
  • Practice

Practice is key to become confident at muscle testing so time is well allocated to this in class.  It is also vital and necessary as homework in between modules.  You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, to become good at muscle testing requires you practice on people and learn your muscles.

Fun is also a pre-requisite.  There is a lot to learn in the courses and fun and laughter are a must.

Ensure they are not in short supply before you apply.
