SIPS is an interesting branch of Specialized Kinesiology which uses acupressure points almost like buttons to ask the body what kind of stress it is experiencing and help it to move the stress out more efficiently.  Ian Stubbings created the first SIPS workshop in association with Dr. Charles Krebs as a way of simplifying the ‘Powers of Stress’ procedure in Applied Physiology (developed by Richard Utt). SIPS diffuses resistance to healing before attempting to treat an individual.

The accumulation of stress in the body inhibits healing energy, which in turn limits the effectiveness of any treatment method. SIPS identifies the types of stress involved that creates this blockage and disperses the resistance so that the healing treatment can be directed at a profound and core level. .

SIPS works on the physical, emotional, mental, etheric and electrical levels of the body to promote whole body healing.  SIPS can be extremely effective for pain relief (for example, diffusing stress in a hurt knee by working with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, synovial fluid and inflammatory processes involved, while also acknowledging any stuck emotion, or fear or a repeat injury), identifying roots of chronic illness; improving cognitive functions and learning difficulties; and assisting in hormonal balance.
