Goal of Treatment:
The goal of QINOpractic Medicine is to aid the body in the removal of disturbances which
affect the nervous system, restore balance and function to the muscles,
specifically those which control spinal movement, thereby allowing the body to
function in a more dynamic fashion.
QINOpractic treatment includes a thorough examination combining:
palpation of soft tissues and joints, a number of neurological and orthopaedic
tests, postural analysis, range of motion tests, and a series of diagnostic
muscle tests. After the examination, a diagnosis of the problem is given, and a
treatment plan is devised with the goal of normalizing the disturbances in range
of motion, and any muscular imbalances.
The therapist then treats the problem, such as an injury, which is determined to be
the main source of the imbalances (the first domino in line)
The ultimate goal of treatment is to activate the self-healing power of the body,
by initiating the healing process which will ultimately repair the injury.
All treatment plans are
determined by diagnosed dysfunction.
The treatment methods used have been gathered from a variety of different
disciplines: Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology and various
QINOpractic treatment however does not only focus on restoring muscular
imbalances, but also tends to emotional and mental imbalances as well. This in
order to activate the body’s self regulating and self-healing power and returning the
body to a state of homeostasis (balance).
A Diplomate and certified QINOpractic Medicine practitioner uses a combination of the following
A. Soft Tissue Technique: This is comprised of a number of different methods
(massage therapy, pressure, various kinesiological techniques etc.) used to
influence the body’s soft tissues, strengthen or
These techniques increase and stabilize the body’s
circulation which in turn decreases muscle tension.
B. Osteopathy: There technique seeks to restore movement to the
seams (sutures) of the bones of the skull.
The natural movement of the cranial
bones can be disturbed, and lock into an improper positions affecting the tissues
surrounding the brain and spinal cord, affecting the flow of the cerebral
spinal fluid, and in turn, the overall function of the nervous system.
A Master of QINOpractic Medicine also uses techniques like:
Eye Movement Therapy, Neurological Calibration, Strain and Counter Strain, EFT, NLP and so on.
