Frequently Asked Questions


No, they most definitely are not! 

Many are outdated, impractical, and overly masculine, lacking the energy, heart, and soul necessary for emotional safety and healing. These traditional methods, often developed by men, focus too heavily on scientific principles and neglect the holistic energetic approach required to address trauma, pain, fear, and stress.

EMK is a heart-centred, yin focused, remedy-based modality created by a woman and is the fastest growing Kinesiology modality in Australia. It emphasises connection, emotions, metaphysical energy, and healing remedies. EMK is modern and progressive, continuously refined and updated based on the latest clinical research.

Not at all! There are no prerequisites for this beginners foundation course and everyone is welcome to enrol in our Kineasy Intro Course.

You simply need the desire to learn, be present, assist others, raise consciousness, unlock your potential, and embrace your own healing journey throughout the learning process.

The energetic shifts, healing and growth we observe in students during class are profound.

No you don’t. However, we believe everyone is spiritual and has intuition, it is just a matter of being open and allowing yourself to tap into it. Your EMK Instructor will guide you through this process.

Muscle reflex testing is a gentle, non-invasive, must know life skill that you will have plenty of practice time to master and feel your way into during the beginners two day introductory ‘Kineasy Intro Course’.

Your EMK Instructor will work with you to determine the best testing method uniquely for you. You will be surprised how quickly you pick up muscle testing – all learnt before morning tea on the first day of the Kineasy Intro Course!

Our courses are facilitated by EMK Instructors all around Australia, as well as Ireland, New Zealand and America.

You can find an EMK Instructor in your area via the ‘Find an Instructor’ page on the website here.

Flow of Study Pathway

Absolutely. Not everyone that enrols in this introductory course wants to become a qualified Kinesiologist, create a business and see clients.

There is no formal commitment or contract to continue studying or become a Certified Emotions and Metaphysical Kinesiology™ Practitioner.

You can come along to the Kineasy Intro Course to learn about Kinesiology and how to muscle reflex test, tap into the subconscious mind, test emotions, use powerful healing remedies and for your own personal development and to assist your family, friends and general wellbeing, plus just for the interest and fun!  Who knows, you might just be inspired and become hooked. ♥

No, you don’t. One of the benefits of being an independent Training Provider is the flexibility.

Once you complete the Kineasy Intro Course, you have three options:

1. Continue studying the EMK pathway and be certified by the end of that calendar year.

2. Enrol in the mid-year Chakra Healing Kinesiology Course and continue studying more paced out and finishing at the end of the following calendar year.

3. Enrol in the EMK courses at your own discretion (as long as you complete your studies within a five year period from when you started).

Instead of Continuing Professional Education (CPE), EMK Practitioners must complete our EMK Practitioner Recertification every two years to maintain their status as an ACTIVE EMK Practitioner. This recertification process entails:

  • Booking a 2-hour online Recertification session with a Certified EMK Assessor, for a flat fee of $300, payable to your instructor, which covers:

      – Delivering a 60-minute EMK Session online to demonstrate competency as an EMK Practitioner.

      – Receiving 60 minutes of mentoring to enhance EMK skills, expand knowledge, and address any EMK session or business queries.

This session should be scheduled within the three months before your recertification date and repeated every two years, aligning with the practitioner’s certification date on their certificate.

The By The Bay Kinesiology® office will be in contact with you via email when you are due for recertification. Once complete, a administration/processing fee of $66 will apply which includes a new electronic certificate being issued.
