Certificate IV Graduate 2017
"My decision to study at IIKA was a spontaneous one, however I now know that it was always meant to be(it is interesting how the Universe works!). It was clear from day 1 that Katha's knowledge and skill in the realm of Kinesiology were second to none. I was always the first to put up my hand for a balance when I knew that I had a chance to have Katha work on me, and whenever she did, I always felt powerful shifts. It were these powerful shifts, which were facilitated by both Katha and my fellow classmates, that truly made this course so much more than just another Certificate IV.
I walk away from this course, not only with a toolbox of fantastic techniques to help assist my clients in making real beneficial changes in their lives, but also a completely different person to when I walked in. I look forward taking my next step in establishing myself as a practicing Kinesiologist and thank Katha fopr the part that she played in allowing this to happen."
Certificate IV Graduate 2015
"I have studied with Katha, as well as other kinesiology schools. It is the dedication to fine tuning all of her students' skills that sets her apart from the rest. The additional material & references that you receive in class, are always beneficial. This is another extra bonus you won't get at other schools. All course workbooks are current, organised and discussedin detail. Homework is always marked promptly with valuable, constructive feedback.
This course is only suitable for those who wanting to change their own life, as well as the life of others. This is not somehting to take lightly if you truly desire to undertake this work. As one of my fellow students quoted: " Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change." Antony Robbins
The incredible Katha Jones uses her intelligence and intuition to unravel the limiting beliefs and patterns that hold us back from reaching our true authentic potential. Without her amazing work I would not be where I am today. Free from illness, injury and chronic stress and being brave and generous. Each session peels off another layer of the onion, revealing a more peaceful life. I am grateful for your incredible work Katha. Linda Gamblin, Course Director, Pre-Professional Year, Sydney Dance Company
Having studied some kinesiology and worked with various practitioners who use kinesiology in all of its evolutions since the early '80s, I've remained convinced of its power as a modality, but not always found the consistent results I was looking for. Katha's depth and breadth of knowledge, her skill, and her attention to detail make her one of the most professional health practitioners I have ever worked with. Whether we are addressing acute symptoms or identifying my 'next step' in terms of regaining optimal health, each session moves me closer to resolving some long term health challenges.
I'm extremely grateful for Katha's wholistic, balanced approach which has provided solutions that go far beyond any I've been offered in the allopathic model... and I have no hesitation in referring my clients to her. Jennifer Moalem, Counsellor, InSpiral
I recently discovered that I had a 100% blockage in my coronary artery. I underwent an angioplasty and had a stent inserted, which opened this artery allowing improved blood flow.
As a precautionary measure my cardiologist prescribed a beta-blocker and a statin (?Zocor?). After taking the drug for approximately 3 weeks I developed a serious allergic reaction to the statin drug. My symptoms included extremely painful inflammation of my joints and muscles. I was physically so weakened and debilitated that I required my husband's assistance to even get out of a chair or bed. Once I was taken off the statin I spent 4 days in hospital and 2 weeks in bed at home recovering. On my first night at home I suffered a severe fit and was unconsious on my kitchen floor for approximately 15 minutes. I felt completely debilitated by this reaction. My appetite was non existent and I felt utterly exhausted, lethargic, depressed and unable to work. The only treatment the medical profession could offer me was to drink large quantities of water to help my body flush out the metabolic toxic byproducts of the statin drug. No other follow-up regime was offered.
I have been seeing Katha Jones for a number of years for specialized kinesiology treatments. As I was not recovering at all, I decided to seek Katha's expert help to regain my physical strength and vitality. After only one kinesiology treatment I felt as if my brain was reconnected and ?switched on? properly. I felt mentally more alert and my cognitive thinking was greatly improved. Katha stimulated my body's detoxification pathways to allow my body to process and eliminate the residue of the statin drug at a rapid rate. I was able to resume my walks on the beach, my appetite returned to normal and I resumed my full-time working life immediately after this session. I had only one follow up treatment a week later and have been in fine form ever since.
I highly recommend kinesiology treatment to anybody who has had any sort of heart procedure as it speeds up recovery. Having someone poke around in your heart is very invasive on many levels and kinesiology helps to restore your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing after surgery.

I appreciate you following up the last consultation we had with Isla. I'm very happy to report that her eczema has been cleared 99% and is basically not visible on her skin anymore. I am very pleased that we have finlly gotten rid of it and her body is healed. I have continued giving her the acidophilus probiotic. After seeing you, I started phasing out the milk powder straight away, which coincided with her increase in solids. I also switched milk powders and since then her skin gradually cleared up completely. I feel silly that I was paying double for this organic brand which was in fact making her sick. But at least we found out what the culprit was and I am eternally grateful for your fast professional help. We only needed one session to identify the culprit and balance her system to start the healing process. J.K. (2012)
I am writing to confirm the positive personal results I experienced during the short kinesiology balance you gave me whilst at the workshop.
As I explained to you, I had an operation in November 2003 to remove my right fallopian tube. The operation was performed via laparoscopy and thought this is meant to be minimally invasive, what they actually do to your body during this procedure is quite horrific!
As a result of the operation, I ended up with continuous pain in my right abdomen. So much so that my quality of life was being severely compromised. I am normally an active person - I couldn't even walk a short distance without being in agony. Continuous visits to my gynaecologist (who performed the operation) left me feeling more and more in despair. He couldn't give me a reason for the pain and in March this year he prescribed antidepressants - not because I was depressed but because these were supposedly good for numbing nerve pain. Against my better judgement and beliefs, I took one tablet, which left me feeling so absolutely revolting that I vowed never to take another one again.
On return to the gynaecologist and stating my experience with the antidepressant, he then prescribed ?Epilem?. On questioning, he finally admitted that it was an anti-epileptic drug!!! I said I had never suffered from epilepsy and he said that he was prescribing it because ?it was also good for nerve pain?. I said that I refused to take something that would affect the chemicals in my brain and that didn't really seem appropriate for my pain.
Absolutely disillusioned and frustrated I left his office wondering was this my fate - live with constant pain for the rest of my life or take some hideous drugs with who knows what side effects. My faith in the medical profession is totally non existent after this fiasco!
In April 2004, I decided to visit a doctor of Chinese Medicine and he gave me herbs to strengthen my body. Though these lifted my spirits and eased the pain somewhat, my life (and the lives of the people I love) were being greatly affected.
As you know I was suffering with a migraine on the first weekend of the workshop (the migraines had become worse with my constant worry) which is why you offered a quick treatment. However, you did a lot more that help ease the migraine. The pain in my abdomen disappeared totally for the first time since November 2003 and it is still gone!! I don't know exactly what you did, but it has convinced me of the power of kinesiology. Because its cessation was so sudden, I keep waiting for it to come back ( I know I shouldn't!).
I am walking 4 km again and doing other exercises - all without pain! My family is happy to have the ?happy and healthy? wife/mum back.
I can't thank you enough Katha!! You have restored my life.

I would like to thank Katha for helping my daughter Monica (age 5) so quickly and effectively after she has suffered from a bout of severe diarrhea for 5 days!
She is usually a very lively and happy child, but she was getting quite lethargic, withdrawn and physically weak. We consulted a local doctor, who prescribed medication for her stomach aches and diarrhea. The medication did nothing to improve her symptoms and I got very concerned about her condition.
She wouldn't talk or interact with me and 2 days after we have consulted the doctor, we took her to the hospital, where she stayed overnight. The medical treatment she received at the local hospital did not improve the situation either. She couldn't keep any food or fluids down and was getting more and more distressed every day.
A friend of mine suggested to see a Kinesiologist as a last resort.
Katha's friendly nature and professionalism put Monica at ease immediately and she felt very calm throughout the whole session, which took only 45 minutes. The results were truly astounding! Three quarters of an hour after the kinesiology session, Monica felt much better, her mood lifted, she started laughing again and was asking for food - the first time in 5 days!!! The symptoms were greatly eased and stopped completely the following day.
She had no difficulties with her digestion ever since!
I was amazed and relieved! I am eternally grateful for helping my daughter to get back on track so quickly and naturally with the power of kinesiology.

I listened with scepticism when a friend told me about her Kinesiologist and what she does. I could not understand how your body can communicate its needs...
I broke both my legs in a car accident in September 1998. My right leg healed fine, however the left leg refused to knit. I was very concerned about this and wondered what else I could do the help healing. I was using Symphytum and Traumeel as homeopathic remedies to help knitting of the bones as well as calcium supplements. In January 1999 I had a bone graft, which also did not generate a knit. In August 1999 after hearing about a kinesiologist called Margie [Margie Donde, principal of the Kinesiology Centre for International Studies, South Africa] I decided that I had nothing to loose and went to see her. Before seeing Margie for my fist appointment I had another x-ray, that clearly showed other options were needed to be considered for the healing of my legs. i.e. an external fixator. It was agreed with my surgeon to wait till the end of November for another x-ray before making any final decisions.
I saw Margie on a weekly basis. After my first session I as astounded and very interested in what Kinesiology could do for me.
As things happen, during the last week of October the pin in my leg broke and I had to have a third operation, but what was the biggest surprise to me were the positive signs of the bone growth on the x-ray taken at this point. I HAD MORE BONE GROWTH ON THIS X-RAY IN THE PAST 8 WEEKS THAN I HAD HAD, IN THE PAST 7 MONTHS SINCE THE FIRST SURGERY. This COULD have been due to a number of things or a combination of different efforts, but I cannot help believing that over and above everything else, Kinesiology played a major role in the healing process of my body.

After being diagnosed with high blood pressure at the age of 37, I was told by my GP and cardiac specialist that I would be on medication for the rest of my life. I was fit-exercising daily, ate healthy, didn't smoke or drink and was perfect weight for my height. Neither of them could explain why I had high blood pressure other than it was in my genes and that I would just have to live with it. This wasn't a good enough reason for me so I searched for alternatives to help me. That's when I found out about Kinesiology and Katha Jones. So, after 4 appointment with Katha, supported by GNLD vitamins, my blood pressure returned to normal within 6 months. A year on and I've been given the OK by my Cardiac Specialist. He couldn't believe that I corrected my high blood pressure naturally, no drugs. I'm absolutely sold on Katha and Kinesiology, so much, that I've just finished my first year of Kinesiology study and looking forward to my career change.

I am writing to express my appreciation for the treatment you have given me over the past three months. For eight months prior to seeing you, I had suffered with lower back pain. During my adult life I have experienced episodes of back and neck pain but they generally subsided with a visit or two to a chiropractor. However, during this last episode, I had visited a physiotherapist and a number of chiropractors, at times on a weekly basis, and was unable to obtain a satisfactory result with the pain returning after a few days. Now after three visits to you, my back is now pain free! Thank you once more and all the best for the future.
I have suffered from severe chronic fatigue for almost ten years. I became sick after contracting glandular fever and cytomegalovirus at a time when I was working long hours and juggling two careers. As a result my immune system 'crashed', I developed a blood disorder, adrenal failure and problems with my endocrine and lymphatic systems. I was constantly exhausted, blacked out for hours at a time and suffered from continual infections. I had to resign from working and have subsequently had to drop out of social activities, sport and most of the things that give me joy.
Over the years I have searched for a solution. I have seen professors in numerous fields of expertise - some of the prescribed medical treatments have made me considerably worse, or triggered other problems -but I have been determined to get well and have explored every conventional and alternative treatment possible. Some things have helped a little but my energy levels have never recovered and most of my time is spent at home in order to keep me on an even keel. A social 'outing' for a couple of hours generally means a day in bed the following day.
In 2009 I had almost resigned myself to accepting this as being my life. The frustration was enormous as I have been 'stuck' and unable to plan or move forward with my life in any area. I had also undergone a thyroid operation earlier in the year to remove a growth from my thyroid and this had set me back further. A friend recommended kinesiology with Katha Jones - I was reluctant, as I had tried a form of kinesiology before with little success but decided to give it a try. I had my first appointment in August 2009.
Right from my first visit I was very impressed with my treatment. Katha's modality of work was nothing like anything I had previously experienced. Her diagnosis was spot on - she picked up several things I had neglected to tell her and immediately identified several food sensitivities and numerous other problems with my body. Over the following months my sensitivities were cleared, my body was realigned - an amazing experience which found me standing upright, straight and balanced, with a completely different posture, for the first time in decades and I started a nutritional support program tailored to my body.
The most amazing treatment for me was in October 2009 - for the first time in years I could feel energy flowing in my body. The next morning I awoke to feel energy almost exploding through my body - right from the base of my spine, up through my spinal column. It was a wonderful feeling. Two days later I had the same experience in my lower abdomen and my menstrual cycle returned for the first time since June. This was an incredible experience for me and I now know that with Katha's help I can continue to grow my energy and reclaim my life.
My blood tests have also shown an improvement in my thyroid activity - this is a huge step forward as I have been allergic to the thyroid medications prescribed, experiencing very bad side effects and my high iron levels - which contributed to my blood disorder, have dropped after Katha treated me for an iron allergy. I am also thankful for the GNLD supplements that are supporting and repairing my body.
To anyone who feels at their wits end with a medical problem that confounds the experts, I cannot recommend Katha highly enough. She is extremely professional yet compassionate and supportive, with a wealth of knowledge. Her treatments have given me insight and understanding and have also been the only treatments, after years of trials, which have made a real difference. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Thank you for last nights information seminar. I would like to thank you for fixing my shoulder on that night. My shoulder has been sore for two years now and I have been unable to sleep on that side - it is now PAIN FREE! I would love to enrol in your course and learn kinesiology at your school!

Her teaching ,methods are varied & flexible and cater for all learning styles. I am always intrigued when I come to class and I enjoy our stimulating group discussions, feedback sessionsand the ueseful practical tips I am receiving.

Last year I went through a huge personal loss and I am still in a phase of major transformation & coming to terms with my loss. Despite the challenges I had to face last year, I have completed my Certificate IV with the help of my instructor Katha Jones and started my oown practice in January 2012. Her ongoing support and gentle guidance heped me stay focused on my goal to become a Professional Kinesiologist.
This course has equipped me with incredible stress management and life skills that helped me get through the most difficult time of my life. It was also the vehicle that unlocked my true potential and I am now in a position to help others achieve thier goals and dreams. The Diploma course is a life journey that I will never leave & I am eternally grateful for the mazing ongoing support I receive from IIKA and my fellow students/peers.
P.T., PKP Kinesiologist
Katha's way of teaching kept me inspired and stimulated throughout the entire course. She also has great patience and skill in making complex topics easy to understand.

Completing my Certificate IV in Kinesiology has altered my perception of my body and my outlook on life completely. I have always known that the body and mind is an amazing creation, but after studying with Katha in 2009, I now understand how much more there is to humankind. This year has opened the door to so much learning, discovering and most importantly, helping others. I feel I now have a solid foundation to find my niche and specialize in the Kinesiology and Complementary Therapy Industry. It has truly changed my life.

Katha is qualified to the highest international standard. Her expertise and teaching style caters for all learning styles and students of all ages and backgrounds. I really enjoyed studying Professional Kinesiology Practice which gave me a deeper understanding of holistic healing on all levels.
The supportive, non-judgmental and nurturing environment has helped me and the rest of the class to learn from a true teacher. Katha brings out the best in each student and I learned to take responsibility for my body, my unresolved issues and my own journey. Thank you for your patience, gentle guidance and understanding during this year of transformation and personal growth.
In 2009 I completd the Cert IV in Kinesiology at the International Institute of Kinesiology. I had been working in IT for 10 years and wanted to change careers to something that was more aligned with my passion for helping people transform their lives. Having had amazing results from seeing a Kinesiologist when I was younger I decided to enrol in the Cert IV.
The course that was delivered by Katha was challenging both on a professional, but also on a personal level. Throughout the 12 months, I went through a personal transformation as I learnt to trust in my skills and let go of my self limiting beliefs that had me 'stuck' in a job that made me unhappy.
The training I received from the International Institute of Kinesiology was presented in a structured format that provided a good balance of theory and hands on exercises to put the theory into a practical context. As an instructor, Katha, attentive to the individual needs of students, delivered the training in a way that catered for all the different learning styles. Katha's use of class demonstrations to highlight techniques was a great way to show how simple yet powerful Kinesiology can be.
I would recommend the Cert IV in Kinesiology for anyone that has a desire to help people be the best they can be or for anyone that wants more from their life but needs some help to find out what they want and what is holding them back.
I have always been interested in the science of human movement and a very holistic approach to health. This course has provided me with a solid foundation in Kinesiology and an in-depth program, which includes theoretical study of kinesiology, anatomy and physiology and loads of practical experience.
The course has taught me the skills to become a highly skilled practitioner. Katha's passion for kinesiology makes her an inspiring teacher of an incredible modality. I thouroughly enjoyed my journey of self-discovery and learning the art of energy balancing.
I have been working as a Natural Therapist for 6 years. Although my treatments are usually very effective, there are times when some clients are so emotionally ?stuck? that their improvements, both physical and emotional are either short lived or non-existent.
PKP Kinesiology is an incredibly effective modality in my ?toolbox? to access the ?subtext? to the client's physical and emotional energetic imbalance, especially when their words are incongruent with what I observe. PKP Kinesiology raises a client's awareness of the blockages causing their lack of wellness and helps them to gain new insights and change their behaviour and gain a more positive outlook. This helps them regain control of the situation and their life energy and vitality greatly improves. This process can help improve performance at school or university, work, sport, business and relationships. The balances can form a complete treatment protocol or can be used individually as an adjunct to other modalities such as massage and bodywork to enhance the healing process.
Katha Jones is qualified to the highest international standard. Her expertise and teaching style caters for all learning styles and students of all ages and backgrounds. I really enjoyed studying professional kinesiology, which gave me a deeper understanding of holistic healing on all levels.

I studied with Katha Jones for a period of one year and I completed my Certificate in Kinesiology in April 2006. My initial reason for studying Kinesiology was that I found the whole concept of working with the structure of the body, the subconscious mind and all other body systems energetically totally fascinating and intriguing. The aim was to incorporate this modality in my clinic to help more people heal and lead happier more fulfilled lives.
I didn't realize at the beginning of my studies, how this training would change and alter my life in the most profound way. I confronted a lot of my fears and unresolved issues, some that I was ready for and some that I didn't know were there. There was and still is a deep bond between all students of my class and a feeling of mutual trust and friendship, which allowed us to reveal our vulnerabilities in a safe and supportive environment and grow in the process of discovering ourselves. I thought that I was learning another healing modality, but this course has helped me to grow tremendously as a person, it has also given me confidence and a renewed belief in myself and my ability to succeed. Kinesiology is a powerful tool and catalyst for transformation and positive change on all levels and I was amazed by the results and difference it makes in people's lives.
Katha's passion for kinesiology makes studying easy, enjoyable and interesting. Her attention to detail as well as her clinical experience and wealth of knowledge ensures close personal tuition and has enhanced my learning greatly. This training has made a huge impact on my business and myself in such a positive and reassuring manner.
S.L., Life Coach, Sydney
Katha's passions for Kinesiology is completely infused in her teaching. I never thought I would grow so much while learning at the same time. She's given me a foundation in kinesiology that will allow me to flourish as a Kinesiologist.
