About the BK Course

BioKinesiology was established by Elma Murphy and Pippa O’Gorman to address the growing demand from people who wish to train in Kinesiology with an emphasis on biochemistry and nutrition. Two of Ireland’s most well respected practitioners, Elma and Pippa have over 30 years experience between them and both run very busy practices in Greystones and Dalkey.

BioKinesiology focuses on noncommunicable pathologies and conditions and uses traditional muscle testing techniques to help determine the root cause of imbalances in the body.

Students will learn how to recognise common conditions, understand potential causative factors and identify what is relevant to their individual client through muscle testing. They will then learn how to support their clients holistically using nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle techniques.
