Matrix Energetics – The Science and Art of Transformation – Kim Burnham, MT, PhD Bio at Mission Hills PT January 5th – 15th, 2010

January 25, 2009

Kimberly Burnham, MT, PhD
In 2006, Kimberly Burnham added a PhD in Integrative Medicine to her 15 year as a
manual therapy practitioner. This added to the richness and breadth of her experience and
specialization in working with people dealing with neurological and visual disorders. Her
dissertation topic was “The Effect of Integrative Manual Therapy on the Symptom’s of
Parkinson’s Disease.”
Kim is certified in Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT). Her 10 plus years at the Center for
Integrative Manual Therapy and Diagnostics (CenterIMT) were spent treating clients at the
headquarters in Bloomfield, CT and as the clinical manager in Boulder, CO. Her job titles
included, instructor for the Connecticut School of Integrative Manual Therapy; Director of
Knowledge Management, Director of Neurodegenerative Disorders, and Director of VisionIMT.
A licensed Massage Therapist, Kim graduated from Sutherland-Chan (Toronto,1993)
where she later taught clinical courses. She also studied cranial work focused on holistic healing,
headaches, back pain, fatigue, neurological conditions, cranial circulation and more through the
Upledger Institute, The Milne Institute, Canadian College of Osteopathy and had a private
practice in Toronto for 5 years before joining the staff at CenterIMT.
The thing Kim loved most about working for CenterIMT was the opportunity to see
positive changes in clients with a dismal medical forecast. She has had the good fortune to see
so many positive changes, changes that many would consider miraculous or impossible. That
experience has really ignited her ability to see that anything is possible.
At CenterIMT, Kim enjoyed traveling and broadening her global perspective on health.
She consulted with clients in Hong Kong, Israel and Italy, as well as treating people from all
over the world in Bloomfield, CT. One highlight was speaking at the “Defeat Autism Now” 2007
conference in Verona, Italy. In 2008, she spoke about “Using Complementary and Alternative
Medicine for Alzheimer’s Disease” at the Connecticut Alzheimer’s Association annual meetings.
To her clinical practice, Kim brings expertise as a Certified Hypnotherapist and Certified
Matrix Energetics Practitioner. These tools allow her to interact with the client holistically,
focus on shifts and help clients see significant improvements in symptoms. She has a strong
grasp on reference material, research and morphic fields, which she taps into during treatment
Familiar with a wide range of nutritional therapies, Kim is a nutritional specialist (2006)
and studied homotoxicology (2004) with Heel and phytotherapy (2009) with Kerry Bones.
A proficient writer with the ability to clearly explain health concerns and hands-on
approaches, Kim is the editor of The Burnham Review, a twice monthly e-newsletter reviewing
the medical and scientific evidence supporting the use and benefits of manual therapy, energy
medicine and other forms of complementary and alternative medicine.
Referring to the first time working with an individual, Kim says, “I believe, what we
expect and observe, influences what we get. People in my practice can expect my full attention
as well as positive changes and progress with their goals. It is best to come to the first session
having thought about your goals. If anything, truly anything, can shift about your health, your
life, your relationships, your way of being in the world, what do you want? What does “better”
look and feel like for you.”

Balancing Manifestation and Appreciation of the Now

January 13, 2009

Thoughts on Balancing Manifestation and Appreciation of the Now

Happy New Year from Mission Hills Physical Therapy!

Just as the holidays seem to be a time of reflection and gratitude for the year past, January is the traditional time for yes, you guessed it, New Years Resolutions.  Contrary to popular culture, I personally prefer the idea (and freedom) of year-long self-improvement.  That being said, the slow, fresh month of January does lend itself well to clearing the mind (and the slate), taking a deep breath, and setting a trajectory for the year to come.

This year, I was particularly inspired. I found myself in a flurry of goal review, goal writing, organizing, inspirational decorating and the like.  I created quite a place, space, and mindset of manifestation.

About a week of goal-oriented focus and powerful “manifestation meditation” later, I could feel the clarity and excitement, but also an edge in the air.  Thankfully, part of my ritual included some sun salutations and “just for today” type mantras – both of which bring me into my body, into the present, and into a place of gratitude for the moment.  While flowing through my vinyasa (yoga poses), the realization hit me.  I was finding myself constantly focused on the “goal,” the end-point, “product,” or outcome; my “future movie.”  I needed to pause and have appreciation for that which I already have.  Life is NOW, only now, and never anytime else.  Inner peace comes with complete acceptance of the present moment, state, and situation.  Not to mention, this current moment, state, and situation is what I have been working to manifest for the past month, year, maybe even 10 years.

Should I even try and purposefully manifest, then? I still say YES!  Purposefully manifesting is one of the amazing, joyous experiences of this life.  What a great way to learn, grow, and challenge oneself.  It may even be a form of appreciation itself – a way to interact with and be present with the potential that is all around us.  That being said, at least for me, it is important to intentionally balance that with life in the Now, taking pleasure in the present moment, having appreciation for that which currently IS, independent of any future manifestations.

So, whether you write resolutions, organize your goals, or simply toast to the New Year, here’s to great joy in the process of manifestation, as well as peace and happiness in the very moment you are manifesting in!
