May 2014

Kim Knight, Director of the Art of Health, is a nominee for the 'Westpac Women of Influence Awards' this year in the category 'innovation and science'.

Kim's passion for educating the public on the true causes and solutions of chronic illness inspires her to share the cutting-edge information she has at her disposal with as many people as possible. Stay tuned for updates!

 

Mickel Therapy makes a BIG splash downunder!

April 2014

For the first time ever, Mickel Therapy will be formally brought to Australia in April. A public talk, one day workshop and practitioner training, led by advanced Mickel Therapists Kim Knight (NZ) and Clare Caldwell (UK) will be held in Geelong, near Melbourne. In 2012 one girl's recovery after 17 years of chronic illness, which nearly brought her to her last days, was so dramatic it was taken up by GT magazine. On a follow up 2 years later she is still vibrantly well. Tickets for the public talk sold out in 48 hours and a new venue has been booked to hold a larger-than-expected audience. Up until now Ms Knight has been the only Mickel Therapy pracititoner in Australasia, servicing clients by phone in Australia, Fiji and New Zealand.

September 2011

Kim Knight, health and personal development coach, nominated for NZ Woman of the Year for contribution in the arena of health and science.

In 2011 Kim was nominated as one of 25 finalists in the NEXT magazine Woman of the Year award under the category of Health and Science.

The annual awards celebrate the success stories of New Zealand’s most inspirational female achievers. The judges included NEXT Editor Sarah Henry, Dame Catherine Tizard and Dr Gareth Morgan.

In NEXT's words:

"The NEXT Woman Of The Year Awards celebrate and acknowledge phenomenal women who manage all aspects of their lives while making an outstanding contribution in their field, from business owners to corporate employees, and charity workers to back-to-work mums.

This is an award for a great innovator in the area of science or health. She will be making groundbreaking steps in an arena she is passionate about.  A woman who has used her intellect and vision to discover or implement a new development that benefits the human race".

This is a huge honour and Kim is thrilled to have the ground-breaking techniques she uses and results recognized by the wider community.

The judges chose Kim as a finalist for:

  • the ground-breaking techniques she is fortunate enough to be using to help people recover from chronic health conditions currently still baffling the medical community, such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel and more
  • her indepth understanding of the role that emotions play in creating illness, and her ability to be able to teach people how to coach themselves back to health with specific strategies and techniques for resolving outstanding emotional issues
  • her ability to help people recover from chronic illness without the use of medication or supplements
  • her approach of 'selfcare - a revolution in healthcare' - wherebye clients are given the information, tools and strategies to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing
  • her understanding of 'prevention is better than cure' wherebye clients are taught how to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle which can avoid illness occurring altogether

NEXT Magazine October Issue 2011

Note re write-up in NEXT magazine:

By mistake NEXT have reported that Kim uses 'Feng Shui' to help people address mental and emotional issues. Whilst Feng Shui (the art of placement of objects in space) is a skill which Kim has trained in, she does not implement this particular art to help clients recover from chronic illness. Rather she uses cutting-edge modalities such as Mickel Therapy, Emotional Intelligence training, Moativational Medicine and Qi Gong, plus other innovative mind-body techniques to help people identify the underlying mental and emotional cause of disease.... and then gives people clear strategies and techniques with which to coach themselves back to health.

Knight on a Mission - The Changing Face of Healthcare

23 May 2012

One of 5 finalists nominated for New Zealand Woman of the Year in 2011 for innovations and contribution in health and science, Kim Knight is on a mission to change the face of healthcare in this country and worldwide.

Having recovered from a number of chronic illnesses, some of which are still classified by mainstream medicine as unsolvable, incurable or only treatable with drugs, she is on a mission to educate people on a new approach to healthcare.

Housebound and unable to work for several years as a result of chronic fatigue, major back pain and clinical depression, she sold her house to travel round the world, believing she may not have much longer to live.

Life it seemed had other plans, and rather than sinking into an abyss of no hope, she discovered what she now refers to as the ‘laws of health’ – natural laws which we must follow if we wish to avoid illness, recover from sickness and build thriving health.

Much of her knowledge and understanding comes from her study and practice of the ancient science of Qigong - Chinese exercises for keeping the body and mind healthy. In addition, she has trained in and implements a number of cutting-edge modalities such as Mickel Therapy (specialist treatment invented by a medical doctor for Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel and other chronic diseases) and Moativational Medicine (specialist techniques for identify and resolving any illness or pain).

Ms Knight’s approach to healthcare includes a number of radical new perspectives, for example understanding:

  • the intelligent nature of symptoms and how they play a positive role in a person’s health
  • the link between emotions and health and the role negative emotions play in generating physical pain
  • the new science of epigenetics and how our environment influences our health by expressing (turning on or off) genes
  • the role of stress and how it is the foundation of disease (dis-ease)
  • the critical role of self care in the management of health

Rather than expecting someone else to fix our problems, Ms Knight teaches clients how to interpret the message beneath the symptoms or problem. She gives people information, tools, strategies and solutions to manage their health or recover from illness. This is, as her business name suggests, ‘The Art of Health and Science of Wellbeing’. Her tagline says it all: ‘Self care – a revolution in healthcare’.

Currently still representing a minority of the general population, Ms Knight is one of a growing number of health practitioners who understand how we can and need to revolutionize our healthcare system. In her words “it’s all a matter of education and awareness. We cannot put into practice what we don’t know. The Art of Health teaches people simple information that has been missing. My vision is a world where people are able to take care of their own health”.

For any sceptics who still find it difficult to believe stress and emotions are the biggest culprits of illness, she offers one of her favourite quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer: " All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Kim Knight educates worldwide via teleseminars, private consultations and seminars.

Art of Health launches ground-breaking Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Summit

Press Release – The Art of Health, Auckland 8 August 2012

Kim Knight, a 2011 finalist for NZ Woman of the Year for innovations in health and science and Director of the Art of Health, a company dedicated to new and innovative approaches to healthcare, has launched her second global online teleseries.

Following on from last year’s successful telesummit which focused on solutions for chronic fatigue, fibromalgyia and related illnesses, this year’s event focuses on the use of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for personal and planetary transformation.

The Summit speakers, all experts in their field of EQ, will demonstrate how developing our inbuilt emotional intelligence system can not only transform the quality of our relationships, health, careers, finances and education, but how it may the key to the future successful evolution of the planet. Ms Knight, an expert in EQ, stress and ‘body intelligence’, will be one of the 27 presenters.

The online global event will kick off Mon 3 September (US) [day after in New Zealand], with Marvin Oka, co-author with Grant Soosalu of the ground-breaking new book ‘mBraining’ and the ‘mBIT’ multiple brain integration technique, who will share how the latest findings in neuro-science show we have three complex and functional brains and how we can harness and integrate these multiple brains for greater success, wisdom and happiness.

Other luminaries include Dr Bradley Nelson, founder of the Emotion Code healing system, who will demonstrate how to remove the ‘HeartWall’ at the core of chronic illness and pain, and Howard Martin, EVP of HeartMath, who will share the ground-breaking scientific experiment to measure the effect of mass human emotions on the planet. A sensor for the ‘Global Coherence’ project is due to be placed in New Zealand shortly, and Ms Knight aims to raise $10,000 for the initiative which is funded by donation.

The Summit will run for 2 weeks from 3 September until 18 September. Listeners can listen in from anywhere in the world free, although the paid option will allow funds to be raised for the Global Coherence Initiative.

Experiment to measure effect of mass human emotions on earth  – Global Coherence Monitoring System comes to New Zealand

Press Release – The Art of Health, Auckland  24 July 2012

‘What effect do human emotions have on the environment and beyond’? These and other questions are being put to the test in a bold, scientific experiment to measure the impact of both positive and negative thoughts and feelings on the earth’s magnetic grid.

Currently underway worldwide, the project has been initiated by the Institute of HeartMath LLC, a US based institution focused on bringing positive change to the world through cutting-edge technologies. In HeartMath’s words, “The Global Coherence Initiative is a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and intention, to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace”.

Described by Jack Canfield, best-selling author of the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ Series and founder of the Transformational Leadership Council responsible for the project, as “perhaps the greatest experiment in the history of the world”, the Global Coherence Monitoring System (GCMS) is a network of sensitive magnetic field detectors strategically placed around the world to test the hypothesis that the earth is affected by mass human emotion. The sensors monitor fluctuations in the Earth’s geomagnetic fields and resonances in the ionosphere.

According to HeartMath “This system will enable a new level of scientific inquiry into the relationship between the earth’s magnetic field, collective human emotions and behaviours and planetary changes”.

It is planned for 14 sensor sites to be strategically place around the world. Three are already in place in California, Saudi Arabia and England with four more funded and soon to be functioning in Canada, New Zealand, Brazil and South Africa. The sensors are funded entirely by charitable donation.

Executive vice president of HeartMath, Howard Martin, will be a keynote speaker on an upcoming global online summit on ‘Emotional Intelligence’ (EQ), which will discuss this project and the soon-to-be-placed sensor in New Zealand. The Summit is the brainchild of creative visionary Kim Knight, Director of the Art of Health, nominated last year for New Zealand Woman of the year for her innovative work in health and science. The summit will feature 26 world experts in the field of human emotion.

Presenters will demonstrate through proven methodologies how developing and using EQ is essential for personal health, healthy relationships, business achievement, successful education and authentic wealth creation.

Above and beyond this, they will also share how the use of EQ (as opposed to only IQ) is a pre-requisite for the positive development of the human race and earth, and how the future of the planet may even depend on it.

Luminaries such as Dr Bradley Nelson (US), Richard Moat PhD (NZ), Rob van Overbruggen (NL), Richard Flook (CAN) and Kim Knight (NZ) will be joining the summit to share their revolutionary findings on how emotions have been discovered to be at the core of many chronic illnesses. Many such illnesses have often been deemed ‘incurable’ in the prevailing medical paradigm, and presenters will share the dramatic and often instantaneous recoveries thousands of people have experienced using their ground-breaking methodologies.

Other well-respected EQ experts included Joshua Freedman (US), COO of 6 Seconds, who will covering the role of EQ in education, Dr Manjir Samanta-Laughton (UK), aka the ‘Punk Scientist’ best known for her revolutionary findings in the field of quantum physics, and Pat Armitstead, the world’s first joyologist. Other cutting-edge topics include Adriane Hartigan von Strauch’s (NZ) seminar on ‘Quantum Intimacy’, Brittany Watkins’ (US) seminar on overcoming emotional obesity and Patricia Evans’ seminar on emotional abuse. (See full line-up of speakers and topics below).

The online global event will kick off Mon 3 September (US) with Marvin Oka, co-author with Grant Soosalu of the ground-breaking new book ‘mBraining’ and the ‘mBIT’ multiple brain integration technique, who will share how the latest findings in neuro-science show we have three complex and functional brains and how we can harness and integrate these multiple brains for greater success, wisdom and happiness.

The Summit will run for 2 weeks from 3 September until 18 September, with several live and pre-recorded ‘virtual’ events. Listeners can tune in from anywhere in the world via the internet and phone in for the live events to interact with presenters. In order for the event to be accessible to as many people as possible, there are free listening options, although the goal of the paid option is to donate 10% of proceeds from premium ticket sales to the Global Coherence Initiative. It is the Art of Health’s aim to raise USD $10,000 for the project.
