Bioenergetics Wellness

In the natural health field, the term Bioenergetics Wellness is used to indicate the many systems which have sprung from Applied Kinesiology and Touch for Health™. Here, muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. The concept of “muscle testing”, is more accurately called muscle monitoring, and becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body, which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, injuries and trauma.

A Holistic Approach

Natural Bioenergetics (formerly called Health Kinesiology) is a holistic approach to personal development, health and wellbeing. It uses “muscle monitoring” to access information from the subconscious mind to be able to direct the practitioner on how to bring about health and well being.

Natural Bioenergetics explores the science of mind-body-environment relationships. It is based on an interdisciplinary science concerned with the interactions of matter, energy, and consciousness. It integrates the wisdom of traditional eastern understanding of the body, providing the best of both approaches.

Natural Bioenergetics involves the study, research, and applications of the bio-physics and technology of the mind, brain, spirit, consciousness, to the underlying forces of life and nature expressed in the physical realm.

Our Vision

The Natural Bioenergetics Institute (NBI) dreams of seeing modern, online delivery of the ancient wisdom of the eastern traditional Chinese healers, blended with modern quantum and torsion physics, and infused with the best that western natural approaches has to offer. 

We are the updated, new but old, energy kinesiology now called Natural Bioenergetics, developed into a distance learning approach that allows anyone to learn and use the skills. These skills will enhance your life, give you access to the wisdom of your body, mind and soul, and free you to be the best person you can be.

We offer NB education and support in a variety of formats, including free self-care information and videos, guided self-development courses, and health coaching programs, along side our professional-track NB Program and brand new online community portal right here on this website!

We want you to stay connected, on track and inspired in your holistic health and wellness journey. 

Our Story

Natural Bioenergetics is a wellness approach created by Jimmy Scott, PhD out of his roots in psychiatry, energy medicine, Dr Goodheart’s discoveries of the connection to muscle/meridian access, traditional Chinese medicine, and more. 

In the 1980’s, he created the amazing “Health Kinesiology” program, which he began teaching in the UK and the US in the early 90’s. 

The program has since been renamed to Natural Bioenergetics. This updated name better reflects what we do, moves it out of the medical model’s terminology, and creates a new space for self-care and self-responsibility.

Our Home Base

The NBI headquarters is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We currently offer our NB Program in English to residents of Canada, the US and UK, in German to Germany, and in French to those in France, Belgium and Quebec. If you have interest in this program, but don’t see your required country or language, contact us about your needs as we are developing and expanding our reach. 

We are diligently working to create both an online program and a professional career college, with the goal of having a 3-year vocational diploma granted by the province of Alberta. This program will be available and is the standard program for all of North America and those who wish to take the program from other countries where there is no locally-regulated program available.
