SoME HEALTH KINEsIOLOGY HISTORY
After earning my Ph.D. in Physiological Psychology at the University of North Carolina in 1966, and spending four years doing research at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland, I found myself on the faculty of the University of California Medical School, first at the Davis campus, later at the San Francisco campus. During this time I published over 30 research papers in scientific and medical journals and developed an international reputation in both sleep research and biofeedback research. Of course my scientific training included maintaining a skeptical attitude, careful clear thinking, evaluation of available facts, and disbelief of anything not “scientifically proven.”
When I first saw a demonstration of muscle-testing in the early 1970’s I was both fascinated and highly skeptical. Over the next few years I observed several more demonstrations, some at professional meetings. I found them interesting, but on the basis of those demonstrations, I did not see how kinesiology could be useful for me. In the meantime I made considerable changes in my professional life. While still at the University, I became licensed as a Psychologist and started a professional practice doing biofeedback and relaxation training with clients. I became increasingly frustrated with academic / medical school politics, so I left the University about 1975 to pursue my private practice.
