In the sixties applied kinesiology, behavioural kinesiology and educational kinesiology have all revealed that there is a link in energy between organs and muscles and whatever affects the organs, affects the muscle’s energy supply and vice versa to a degree, the organ always being the priority on the energy scale.

Even though this research can now prove this energy link, and that certain factors block energy, this knowledge has been available to other cultures for thousands of years and despite this, our Western approach to exercise is still very external and competition orientated which dominates the left brain activity.

The following exercises are a compilation on energy building/storing movements I have found to be balancing and integrating of the body’s energy, If we work on the organs good health, muscular good health must follow, we find people jogging to get fit when their organs have no tone and all the bouncing actually causes physical harm.  Doctors are now acknowledging this fact.

Simple Health Exercises are basically to strengthen the organs and energy centres related to them, to make the energy available to our limbs and promote good health, our external muscles are also auxiliary pumps to clear toxins and organs and keep them toned, and moving them slowly against real or imaginary forces improves the flow of C.S.F. brain fluid to all parts of the body.

Active Balance M.O.T Integration exercises or ALPHACISE, is a series of movement and postures, they are not like exercises in the normal sense of the word nor do they comply with the posture of yoga, they are more – some are done on the move, others held for several seconds but all are done with active movement of the mind.

If you imagine the exercises being half, and the mind involvement the other half, putting together the sum of the two halves totals more than the whole.  This equation is possible because when the body and mind become integrated the potential is greatly expanded.

Fundamental laws cannot be changed.

Active Balance Body-Mind Integration

Active Balance Core Health Through Body-Mind Integration could be designed for a new you in 2009 this can only occur when we become aware of our sensory apparatus.  

Our brains manufacture visualisations from incoming information from our sensory apparatus. We interpret this visualisation as our real world, e.g. Hostile people live in a hostile world, happy people live in a happy world, Rich people don’t appreciate poverty, and healthy people don’t appreciate sickness.

Why do I hurt?

Once the spine has been misaligned and needs to be reset there are several approaches you can take. Chiropractors and Osteopaths have been adjusting spines for many years using thrust or leverage type adjustments. Using the principle of positioning by putting the origin and insertions of the muscle together, a more gentle approach can be achieved. This is not intended as a replacement for therapy but is a safe method that many times gives relief and allows re-alignment of the spine. Before working on the spine in this way always do the Active Balance Integration Exercises and then follow up with the modified horse stance or Ancients Squat.
