PSYCH-K stands for Psychological Kinesiology. It is a self-help tool developed by Robert M. Williams in 1988 with the goal of changing beliefs in the subconscious mind. Subconscious beliefs are often the “invisible” cause of self-sabotaging behaviors. The PSYCH-K program was designed to help people change the way they feel, behave and interact in life.

Most traditional tools such as insight therapy, affirmations, will power, journaling and visualization are limited to the conscious mind. PSYCH-K focuses on changing subconscious beliefs with the hope of likewise changing behavior, feelings and interpretations in life. This enables the individual to change his state of mind at the first indication of stress.

In PSYCH-K, kinesiology is used to communicate with the subconscious mind. Specific body postures and movements cause neuron firings in both hemispheres of the brain, creating a state in which change can more readily occur. The creator of the program claims that, using this method, it is possible for subconscious beliefs to be recognized, and a debilitating belief could be replaced with one more desirable.

A unique aspect of PSYCH-K is that a “permission” step is included to ensure that the changes are in the best interest of the person at that time. Also, there are several verifying steps to catalogue the changes taking place. This is use to satisfy the skepticism of the conscious mind.

PSYCH-K™ incorporates Educational Kinesiology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), acupressure, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, and various psycho-spiritual healing systems. [cite web | date = 2007-01-03 | title = PSYCH-K | publisher = Sheila Wright Consulting Services | url =

] Advanced PSYCH-K tools are streamlined and efficient, and they are therefore helpful in specific situations like breathing exercises, acupressure points, body postures, and body movements.
