Optimising Adrenal Function


Discover the latest kinesiology protocols to reduce stress, hormonal imbalances and shift to a place of harmony, health and resilience.


Today’s kinesiologist is keenly aware of the role that stress plays in client wellbeing and the challenges that come with assessing, identifying and managing stress.

The hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal (HPA) axis is our central stress response system.


The hormones of the HPA axis exert their effect on the autonomic nervous system, which controls vital functions such as mood, digestion, immune system, libido, metabolism and energy levels.

The adrenal hormone cortisol impacts nearly all body systems. Cortisol levels fluctuate throughout the day, normally peaking in the morning hours and bottoming out at night.

Understanding the factors that affect cortisol secretion can inform appropriate treatment interventions.

This functional approach to hormonal imbalance provides tools for assessing the upstream factors that can impact hormone function and strategies for balancing these issues.

What you will learn:

  • The key differences between ‘adrenal fatigue’ and HPA axis dysregulation and why restoring HPA axis function can lead to life-changing improvements for clients.
  • Latest research and findings on the metabolic and clinical consequences of chronic stress, which in turn affects nearly every organ and system of the body, including the gut, brain, thyroid, immune and reproductive system.
  • How to identify and balance the key glands, hormones and neurotransmitters driving HPA axis dysregulation.
  • Why the physiochemical responses of the HPA axis are easily triggered by non-physical events. Emotions such as grief, excitement, fear, anxiety, guilt, embarrassment can all trigger a robust HPA axis response.
  • A systems-based approach that guides you to uncover the root causes of your clients’ symptoms (even the super complex cases).
  • You will also receive real world examples of ‘treatment organisation’ for your setup and corrections to ensure you have a new level of confidence with every client who comes through your door.

Kinesiology Techniques & Protocols

  • Acupressure Formatting for key gland, hormone, neurotransmitter, micronutrient and brain areas involved in HPA axis imbalance.
  • BioEnergetics (Protocol) provides practical acupoint solutions that have effects on specific structures and functions of the HPA Axis.
  • Reactive Feedback Loops (Protocol) to balance the secretion of hormones and neurotransmitters of the HPA axis. This system is carefully modulated through feedback loops designed to maintain predetermined hormone levels (i.e., set points) and homeostasis.
  • Five Element Energy Flow (Protocol) and the key energy medicine relationships of the HPA axis to

    optimise our potential for physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

Take your Clinical Practice to the Next Level

This essential MasterClass combines theoretical exploration, practical hands-on skill development, relevant background readings and clinical case studies, along with being supported by an ongoing vibrant online group learning community.

Date: TBA 2020
Time: 9am – 5pm
Venue Address:
Cnr Marcus Avenue & Lawrence Road , Mount Waverley VIC 3149
Course Instructor: Damian Brown

After enrolment you will be given access to the online pre-course modules. This allows you to prepare for the course in an online setting, independently and at your own pace. The pre-coursework is made up of a series of short lessons with an accompanying quiz for each lesson.  These may be reviewed as many times as necessary to become comfortable with the content.

This online learning platform allows for more practical time and focus on kinesiology techniques, along with supporting what is taught over the 1 day MasterClass.

What makes this MasterClass different?

This 1-day MasterClass is the first to offer a complete framework for working directly with the HPA axis. It is a culmination of well over a decade of clinical practice and research to create something from the ground up that will teach kinesiologists how to work with key elements of abnormal cortisol patterns, stress and numerous hormonal disruptions.

Can the MasterClass be taken online?

At present the MasterClass requires you attend the scheduled 1-day program.

Does the MasterClass have pre-requsities?

The MasterClass is best suited to qualified practitioners looking to expand their clinical knowledge. An understanding of finger modes, formatting, pause lock and basic Five Element theory is highly recommended.

Does the MasterClass use specific test kits?

Yes. We highly recommend purchasing our custom Adrenal and Micronutrients test kits both available to purchase during the class.

What method of payment do you accept?

The preferred method of enrolment and payment is via the secure online registration process. This provides you with instant access to the online course materials. Accepted payment methods include Visa, MasterCard. When requesting payment via bank deposit you will be emailed an invoice for which full payment is required to secure your place in the selected course.
