Calibration – Kinesthetic Rep System

Written by Lee Avery
Training Objective
Identify changes in internal state based upon touch and kinesthetic feedback.


1Set-Up – Subject & Practitioner hold each others wrists using both hands in over/under configuration. During this activity it is important that both Subject and Practitioner keep their eyes closed.


2+ve Calibration – Subject thinks of someone or something that they like. The practitioner uses the sense of touch to calibrate to the Subject focusing on feedback in the form of skin temperature, tightness, pulse rate etc.


3-ve Calibration – Subject now thinks of someone that they DISLIKE and the practitioner calibrates on the variation in kinesthetics.


4Test & Evaluate – Subject now picks one of the two emotional responses (+ve or -ve) and the Practitioner must use their calibration to identify which person the Subject is thinking of.


5Feedback – The Practitioner should tell the Subject which submodality change was the key for identifying the difference e.g. temperature, pulse, movement etc.


6Enhance – Go through the same exercise using different kinesthetic locations e.g. hand on shoulder, sitting with hands on knees, shaking one hand etc.
