Look Inside The Book
This book is a collection of Kinesiology techniques, encompassing many years of lectures that I’ve attended. It is my personal interpretation of what has been taught by The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology, by Dr Sheldon Deal N.M.D., D.C. during his seminars, different courses that I have been on, and the books and articles that have come my way. With this book, I hope to make all that information more accessible to practitioners in Kinesiology.
The majority of the material comes from Dr Sheldon Deal’s lectures. For all those who have attended his lectures, I hope this book will refresh your memories of the techniques he presented. Those who have been to Dr Deal’s lectures before, know that the techniques come thick and fast, too numerous for all of them to be learnt on the day. Many times you walk away with one or two brilliant techniques and many other half-remembered techniques in scribbled notes. No longer do you have to wonder if you have forgotten any technique which could be useful to you, it should be here in this book.
I have taken on board all the comments I received from the last edition and have much improved it. There have been many changes. An indication of the number of changes is the size of the book. The last edition had about 250 pages, this edition has over 500 pages.
- The front and back covers are now encapsulated in plastic.
- This edition integrates all the Dr Sheldon Deal lectures from 1992 to October 2000 including the review days which cover material prior to 1992.
- The book now has a second contents section which has all techniques grouped into different sections like screening tests, energetic, emotional/mental, electrical, structural, and nutritional techniques.
- The first edition only had 16 diagrams. This second edition has 615 diagrams illustrating all the different techniques.
- I have included all the information that I taught in an Essential Muscle Testing course. It includes 13 different factors that can affect your muscle testing (page 10); 10 different muscle testing pitfalls (page 11); 25 ways to switch off a muscle (page 14) and 18 things that can reverse your muscle testing result (page 18).
- I have catalogued 59 things to try on a difficult case (page 149).
- It includes the neurolymphatic points (page 306), neurovascular points (page 308), acupuncture meridian flows (page 27) and acupressure points (page 20). There is also a muscle and meridian relationships chart (page 287) so the only thing you need to remember is the muscle test itself.
- The index section has been completely redone. All techniques have a ‘bold’ page number. Everything that is mentioned in the ‘useful for’ of a technique, is listed as an ‘italic’ page number. If the reference is just in the general text, then the page number is in a ‘normal’ font.
For those who are interested in “How long did it take?”, I used the last book as the starting point of this book. From that starting point, a conservative estimate is that it would have taken at least 18 months if I was writing the book full-time.
Different sections of the book include:
- First contents section is alphabetically arranged
- Second contents section has the techniques grouped into lists of techniques, screening tests, energetic, emotional/mental, electrical, structural and nutritional subsections.
- General section applicable to all kinesiologists
- Techniques section with each technique broken down with what each technique is useful for (italics in the index), background, how to test, how to treat and cross-references to other related techniques.
- Miscellaneous section where there are useful facts that are not kinesiology techniques.
- Appendices with some useful charts
- Glossary explaining the terminologyISBN 0-9530247-1-7
As you know, kinesiology is not my only therapy, and therefore I don’t use it 100% of the time, now when I do need to use it I can be so much more effective because I can always find the answer easily.
I know I am a good kinesiologist in my own way but seeing the book has made me realise how much I had forgotten! One of the reasons I had stopped using some of the techniques was because I had no diagrams to remind me, now I have.
Thank you for all your hard work in producing this book. An invaluable tool.
The first thing that strikes one is the fact that the compendium contains many, many illustrations. The illustrations are clear and easy to understand. The combination of text and illustrations adds a new dimension to easy learning and understanding to many of the techniques.
The second thing to be noticed is the sheer number of techniques and procedures covered in this compendium. Contributions have been added from many sources with accreditation to those concerned. The compendium is simply and clearly indexed and cross-references occur regularly throughout the text.
This is a book to have. It provides a great deal of information and enables new techniques to be part of one’s treatment. The compendium has been updated from the previous edition and Alan Lam obviously has been able to offer simplicity and more clarity to his previously already marvellous book. This is a reference book to have for all kinesiologists.
I take great delight in endorsing this wonderful reference on kinesiology.
Dear Alan, Thank you for sending me your updated compendium of techniques so quickly. I am happy to be able to confirm that it surpasses the previous book I had in all ways, and that says a lot in itself.
I call your book the “ultimate test kit”. It is with me by the treatment table and on all my teaching trips. I can find very easily any technique I need and because of your cross reference many techniques I had not remembered. It is precise and concise and therefore extremely useful. It saves me from referring to so many notes and papers, saves me a lot of time, all the charts we use are there with information for my clients, etc.
It obviously contains the best Kinesiology information that is, the sources are impeccable as are the design and the graphics. We are all so fortunate that you have chosen to use your great skills to our benefit.
Thank you very much
This second edition of ‘Kinesiology; A Compendium of Techniques’ represents a quantum leap from the first edition. Many of the techniques, such as cranial corrections, are now accompanied by really detailed graphic reproductions making written instructions and information 100 per cent clearer and easier to understand. For the individual kinesiologist to use personally or as a teaching aid this edition is a must.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in Kinesiology. I use this book constantly as a source of reference. With the best will in the world, everyone falls into a routine. This book helps me break out of that rut. It is very easy to pick up and use.
Fantastic, your clients deserve this book. It’s helped me become a more effective therapist. It reminds you of the techniques you’ve forgotten you knew. Tremendous value – a must-have
