Neuro Kinesiology


“...the use of our intelligence quite properly gives us pleasure. In this respect the brain is like a muscle.  When we think well we feel good. Understanding is a kind of ecstasy.”                     Dr. Carl Sagan

“To preserve a man in the midst of so many chances and hostilities, is as great a miracle as to create him”

Jeremy Taylor


What is Neuro Kinesiolgy

Neurokinesiology was originally developed by Dr Charles T. Krebs as a wholistic non-medication based technique for working with cognitive disorders such as brain injury, ADD, ADHD and dyslexia. The process is known as  LEAP, Learning Enhancement Acupressure Program.  It became very apparent to its founder that the brain integration procedure of LEAP is important to fundamental function at all levels including our neural emotional pathways making LEAP ideally suited for the treatment of PTSD and addictions as well as learning challenges. Deborah Shafer uses the LEAP® technique, Learning Enhancement Acupressure Program, as well as craniosacral therapy, osteopathic manipulations, applied physiology and nutrition to facilitate a natural return to the body’s innate Health.

LEAP was founded in 1985 by Dr. Krebs in conjunction with clinical psychologists, speech pathologists, neurologists and other health professionals, as a very effective program for the correction of most learning difficulties and neural emotional pathway disturbances. LEAP® is based on a new model of learning, integrating recent concepts in neurophysiology of the brain and uses highly specific acupressure formatting to address stress within specific brain structures. The application of specific non-invasive acupressure and other energetic techniques can then resolve these stresses resulting in a return to normal function.
