Dr. Kirkpatrick uses, where appropriate, a number of other healing modalities for educating and coaching clients, including:
Energy Healing Technologies:
Bemer Technology – pulsed electromagnetic field technology that has been shown to improve microcirculation to support the body’s own self-healing and regeneration processes. It promotes and activates the immune system and supports the healing of wounds and injuries as well as all regeneration processes of the individual. It is used by sports professionals to boost peak performance by stimulating the metabolism and the energy systems of the body. It supports anti-aging, improved sleep, and increased concentration for studies and professional success. For more information see http://www.bemeramerica.com/.
Low Level Laser Technology – provides coherent light which has been found in studies to address pain relief, hypothyroidism, mitochondrial activity to stimulate energy, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteo-articular diseases, wound healing, bone healing, reduced edema, Achilles tendinitis, neurological performance in traumatic brain injury, neurovascular function in diabetic peripheral neuropathy, and inflammation. In the range of issues which Guidance for Wholeness addresses it has accelerated healing and provided significant pain relief. For more information see http://www.enerchilaser.com/research/index.html.
The BioMat – delivers the highest vibrational resonance deep into all tissues of the human body. The combination of infrared light, negative ions and amethyst quartz opens the channels of cellular communication leading to DNA repair and total body wellness. It is used to improve circulation and cardiovascular function, improve immune system function, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, burn calories and control weight, ease joint pain and stiffness, reduce stress and fatigue, relieve anxiety and promote relaxation, alleviate migraines and tension headaches, reduce allergy symptoms, improve muscle tone skin quality, and remove toxins. For more information see http://www.biomat.com.
Bionic Hydrotherapy – is used to detoxify, energize and revitalize clients. Users report relief from chronic pain and headaches, arthritis and toxemia, peripheral neuropathy, inflammation, fibromyalgia symptoms, athletes foot and shingles, congestion and brain fog, muscle aches and hangovers, irritable bowel syndrome and more. At Guidance for Wholeness I use this as part of a general detox program. For more information see http://www.bionichydrotherapy.com.
Infra-Red Sauna – also used as part of the detox program. The sauna uses infrared light as radiant heat to penetrate human tissue, which in turn produces a host of detoxifying and anti-aging health benefits. It has been used for pain relief, relaxation, cell health, improved circulation, weight loss, wound healing, lowering blood pressure, and recovery from flu and other respiratory infections.

Energy Healing Techniques:
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) – often called “tapping,” stimulates the energy meridians to free up trapped energy, which results in the release of emotional blockages. This technique was developed by Gary Craig in 1995 and is one of the most widely used energy healing techniques available. It has been effective in removing negative emotions, reducing food cravings, removing phobias, reducing or eliminating pain, and implement positive goals. For more information see http://www.emofree.com.
Matrix Reimprinting – takes EFT to a new level, allowing the client to do the healing work with emotions that are dissociated, that the client cannot otherwise access. Matrix Reimprinting was developed by Karl Dawson, an EFT Trainer, to address these emotions. It is used to find past traumas, often hidden in the unconscious, and to substitute a new understanding of those experiences, freeing the individual to react differently in the present and to transform their future. For more information see http://www.matrixreimprinting.com.
Quantum Techniques – is being developed by Dr. Stephen and Beth Daniel as an even further outgrowth of EFT. Their work is based on the principle that, “What the body can see, it can heal.” It views all disease as a lack of communication within the body for either physical or non-physical reasons. They work only at the energetic, rather than the physical level, but at that level Quantum Techniques can educate clients on where the blocks to healing reside and can coach clients to provide a code, which the client can use to address those blocks.

BioSpirituality – is an advanced technique for getting in touch with the wisdom of the body. It has been developed over many years by Dr. Ed McMahon and Dr. Pete Campbell. BioSpirituality is an outgrowth of Focusing which was developed by Eugene Gendlin. The human body has a unique way of felt-knowing which is different from thinking, analyzing, and reasoning. The body spontaneously recognizes the whole of a situation, the whole of a relationship, the whole of an experience, together with the interacting web of complex connections that goes along with each of them. The body knows in a great gulp, while your mind must systematically chew its way through each individual piece. Resources for inner healing, creativity, and the vast riches of our human spirit lie waiting to come alive. It’s all in the linking, the connecting, the relating!

Institute of HeartMath Techniques and emWave Coherence – provides the participant with tools for achieving stress relief, greater head-heart coordination, balancing of the autonomic nervous system, greater emotional stability, improved mental clarity, and improved heart rate variability scores. Studies have shown a 50% drop in fatigue, 46% drop in anxiety, 60% drop in depression, 24% improvement in ability to focus, 25% improvement in listening ability,, and 30% improvement in sleep.
