Integrated Kinetic Neurology Approach

The Integrated Kinetic Neurology Approach 

Integrated Kinetic Neurology utilizes practical neuroscience to mobilize the nervous system on multiple levels to facilitate positive change in pain and performance.

IKN was born out of an understanding that there is no singular approach to help everyone. If there was, nobody out there would be suffering from  pain or stress-related conditions, or issues that may be impacting sports performance. We understand that every modality has its strong points, but also has its drawbacks.

IKN gives you tools to address many levels of the human nervous system and other core systems to create an environment to facilitate positive change in pain and performance.  

It is important to note that this is not a standalone approach. We have designed this approach to allow those with little understanding of neurology to immediately learn how to harness this system and easily combine it with their current model. Again, every approach has its strong points, but also has drawbacks. The most efficient way to help our clients is to integrate and address as many levels of the 
nervous system and body as possible to facilitate positive change.

Our primary aim is to supply our nervous system with as much accurate information as possible, and enhance the processing of this input. The beauty of our system is that it can be easily integrated with your current approach to address deeper levels of the brain and body pertaining to a clients’ complaints. Additionally, by creating a fully integrated state through the sensory systems, we can achieve more optimal output in the form of enhanced movement efficiency, pain reduction/elimination, strength, power, flexibility and so on. 
Taking a reductionist view of the body slows down this process. We need to evolve our approaches to one that considers the full body and other organ systems as opposed to only viewing segmented body 

The goal of IKN is to promote resourcefulness throughout our entire system through hands-on reflex stimulation, sensory-based integration drills, physical movement that creates safety, neurological balance and psychological reconditioning to enhance our ability to adapt and respond to threat as we move forward in our lives.

What you are going to learn:

  • Hands-on neuro-stim drills to create the best environment before touching the area of pain
  • Visual and vestibular system influence on the musculoskeletal conditions. It’s not all about proprioception. Integrate!
  • Neurolymphatic reflex stimulation
  • Neuro-balancing movements
  • Neuro-signatures and neuro-tags involvement
  • Neuro-layering techniques to achieve better results with hands-on techniques
  • How the tongue impacts different functions, breathing and the stomatognathic system

Our approach will teach you how to create the most optimal environment to facilitate positive change at the beginning of your sessions or classes which can result in remarkable changes in pain and performance. Then, we will move onto a full assessment of all the sensory systems in the body and discuss their influence over our entire body and how disturbances can cause issues in many areas.

We will present you with many neurological stimulation drills to integrate these systems and combine them with your current approach, as well as learning neuro-balance drills to create safety within the brain and body. Integrating these components together can result in incredible changes for our clients, but most importantly, empower them with the ability to reproduce the effects at home to achieve long lasting change. This is the key that allows our clients to continue to adapt to their environment and remain resilient to stressors they may have in the future.

  • We don’t see with our eyes, hear with our ears, smell with our body. We do all these things with our brain.
  • Techniques to harness neurology that improve results don’t have to be complicated or time consuming
  • We are designed to move away from threat and safety. Unless you live in a bubble, it is impossible to escape threat.
  • The brain does not like bilateral movement.
  • Our brain is constantly responding and adapting to multiple inputs at any given time and so one single input is probably not enough to create a long term change.

Location of the course: HumanMotion BV

Klaaskampen 19C
1251KN Laren


Recommendations to stay during the course:



Less than 300 meters from our office we have a nice Bed&Breakfast called: Het Hof van Laren.
For more information go to: 

Hotel de Witte Bergen in Eemnes is for some courses HumanMotion does in the Netherlands; it is 5 minutes away (by car) from our office.

Amsterdam, is only 35 kilometres from the hotel. Amersfoort and Utrecht are only 20 kilometres away. The airport is 48 kilometers from the hotel.


From the Airport / Amsterdam city center.
We advise to travel by train from Schiphol airport to Hilversum and get a taxi from the trainstation Hilversum to Klaaskampen 19C. Total cost would be around: (1 way) € 10,00 for the train from Schiphol to Hilversum and approximately € 22,50 for the taxi from train station Hilversum to our location (all prices are estimated prices)

the phone number to make a taxi reservation is: +31 35 531 8080 (taxi Eemnes) Mostly there are also taxi’s on the station as well you can ask them for their rates.

You can by your train ticket at the train stations

Dr. Ryan Foley earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy and Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences,Psychology, and Gerontology from Nazareth College of Rochester, New York. After his 6 years in New York, he moved to Miami to work at a sports performance center, delivering treatment professional athletes from teams such as the Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and also the U.S.A Olympic Sailing team. It was here where he learned advanced treatment techniques to improve pain and sports performance. After his spell in Miami, Ryan moved to back to Manhattan, NY to begin working at a sports medicine & amp; rehabilitation Institute, specializing in helping individuals with pain and performance issues. Out of dissatisfaction with the conventional approach to helping people resolve pain and injuries, he moved back to Ireland and began studying applied functional neurology methods, specifically Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex, along with other applied neuroscience approaches to help get people get out of pain and improve function. He now owns his own private practice Evolve Physiotherapy
