Soul Blueprint Coach™ 

Regions Approved: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom, South Africa, United States
Training Provider: The Bliss Academy159.9

The Soul Blueprint Coach will use the Soul Blueprint Matrix system to calculate the individual’s personal journey here on earth. It consists of the client’s date, time and place of birth.  

A Soul Blueprint Coach is trained to use a combination of ancient techniques including Astrology and Numerology to assess the client’s Soul Blueprint.  

The Soul Blueprint holds the key to understanding a person’s highest callings in relation to metaphysical ideologies.  During the Soul Blueprint Alignment session, the coach will acknowledge the client’s unique attributes to strengthen their sense of self-awareness to live their highest potential, and to gain valuable insight into the challenges, and triggers they may be facing in their life.  The coach will use specific templates to help the client clarify, and work through the issues and blocks they need to heal, to align with their Soul Blueprint and highest purpose. It will also provide insight into the personality, strengths, weaknesses, passions, and motivations.  

The Soul Blueprint Coach uses the Soul Blueprint Matrix, which is an original design and system created by Ramona Lever. 

Animal Osteopathy

Regions Approved: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom, South Africa, United States 
Training Provider: London College of Animal Osteopathy 

Animal Osteopathy as a general treatment is deeply rooted in classical osteopathy and the philosophies of Andrew Still. It gently disrupts the animal body’s state of dysfunction and restores integration, thereby homeostatic state of health. This is achieved through functional techniques with slow, controlled, long lever moves, with the focus on the quality of movement rather than the range of motion. 

One of the main principles in osteopathic medicine is that treatment should restore health to the local tissues. This involves the restoration of blood supply, nerve supply, and lymphatic drainage. Where any of these are absent, the tissues can reflect poor health. 

In practice, Animal Osteopathy is a system of techniques that can help ease pain, remove tension and restriction, and restore full movement in the joints of the animal’s body. The therapist examines the functional anatomy of each joint and its accompanying structures, before mobilizing associated bones. The direct and indirect relationships throughout the skeletal system are also considered, with posture, gait and palpation forming part of the assessment.

Regions Approved: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States, Europe, United Kingdom, South Africa
Training Provider: Natural Quantum Healing

NDIH/NDIL is a non-invasive movement, energetic and vibrational modality that enhances mainstream treatments using an integration of ancient healing wisdom and the latest scientific advances in epigenetics, quantum physics, and holograms.  

These techniques have been developed over 30 years of research and clinical application by Lee-Anne MacLeod in modalities such as Kinesiology, Brain Gym, Natural Quantum Healing, Transcendent Therapy, NLP, Hypnotherapy, Acupressure, Primal Therapy, Dorn Spinal Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and Energy Healing.   

A learning disability or challenge may involve or equally arise from a health issue, or a learning issue may impact a client’s health. Both aspects are synergistically supported to resolve the ‘root cause’ of the issue.  

Neuro-Muscular Dynamic Integrated Health is directed at health issues that cannot solely be addressed by traditional and/or Allied Healthcare. This may include, but is not limited to, physical, hormonal, and spiritual issues, poor gut health, allergies and food sensitivities, Parkinson’s, and Motor Neurone disease.  

Neuro-Muscular Dynamic Integrated Learning primarily addresses learning challenges and difficulties of all forms and across all ages. This can include Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Global Developmental Delay, Autism Spectrum, brain damage (i.e., accidental, Alzheimer’s) processing, visual and attention/concentration/memory issues, and poor coordination.  

NDIH and NDIL identify the underlying causes in a person’s energetic matrix and learning ability, learning the stresses and imbalances to restore homeostasis. It uses a gentle, non-invasive body sway technique to test for imbalances, so the practitioner does not have to touch the patient if not permitted. Treatments always include permission and safety procedures, as well as an educational aspect so clients can repeat helpful techniques at home.

Neuro-K Specialised Kinesiology

Regions Approved: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States, Europe, United Kingdom, South Africa

When practitioners have permission to work with the ‘whole person,’ they have better success finding the ‘root cause,’ leading to an accelerated natural healing of the body, mind, conscious and spirit.      

Neuro-K Specialised Kinesiology (NK) can be used as a stand-alone therapy, or it can be easily integrated with traditional and Allied Health systems.
