How does K.O.R.E work?

KORE uniquely integrates both Oriental and Western medicine using hands-on intervention to address many different symptoms of illness. By using muscle tests we can identify problem areas in the nervous system that are often caused by physical imbalance. These imbalances lead to various conditions of both the mind and the body including pain, poor sleep, fatigue and chemical changes that eventually feed through to emotional and mental issues.

In China all mental and emotional illness was diagnosed to system (organ) imbalance within the body, which gradually degrades the quality of blood and hormone production. This chemical imbalance would then have a knock-on effect to the normal operation of mental/emotional balance within the brain.

An imbalance in individual organs can lead to predictable emotional changes, so for thousands of years medicine and treatment has been successfully directed at the physical aspects that cause organ imbalance. Intervention such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and hands-on release treatment is used to aid recovery and wellness.

KORE’s clinical experience has taught us that if we add structural release techniques too, we often get clear fast changes in personality and the wellbeing of the client.

Though many years of clinical development, KORE understands the importance of recovery, prevention and self-help techniques that has gained our clients fast positive results and continues to help them.
