Like many health care professionals Dr. Dunn began her career
in Natural Healing after a long bout of ill-health, which made her seek out alternatives. When the medical Profession had no answers for her, she found her way eventually to a Kinesiologist who was able to help her regain her health.


Her exposure to Kinesiology  peaked her interest and she began studying Kinesiology and Nutrition.  She became certified in Touch for Health, Educational Kinesiology, and Kinesionics. With these techniques she began to have good success with a variety of ailments. She decided to further her studies and went back to school  to earn her bachelor of Science Degree in Natural Sciences and her Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa.


She founded the High Level Wellness Center in Albuquerque in 1995 and  has great success with many different health challenges. The clinic  is home  to 12 different practitioners including Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists, a hypnotherapist and other Kinesiologists.


Her philosophy is to treat the person as a whole being, not just as a collection of parts and symptoms.  Her view is that the body has an amazing ability to be whole and healthy if it is given the right
tools (that is the right nutrients, the right attitude and a healthy
lifestyle).  Using the very powerful tool of Kinesionics muscle
testing she is able to determine where the body is out of balance and
what it will  take to bring it back into balance, thus helping to restore health.


Dr, Dunn became an instructor of Kinesionics in 1991, teaching alongside the developer of the technique, Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa. She eventually began to develop her own technique which combines many other healing modalities with the Kinesiology and is now the sole instructor of Wholistic Kinesiology.  Classes are held at High Level Wellness Center on an ongoing basis.

Editor's Note: Dr. Dunn's CV is overly modest in that she has been able to effectively help even a breast cancer patient with a psychological aversion to conventional treatment so bad that the individual could not even go near an allopathic doctor's office without suffering a panic attack. The simple act of sitting still and allowing someone to draw blood was not possible for this individual.

Although classically trained scientists may have been indoctrinated to have an initial aversion to kinesiology, they cannot deny the very real and scientifically documented placebo effect and our own natural instincts to eat what is right and needed by the body for good health. It is only through being bombarded by junk food advertising and constrained by our own rationalizations in a fast- paced lifestyle that we find ourselves slighting our nutrition and health to save time at our own peril. Consequently, addressing the psychological is just as important as the physical in effecting lifestyle changes that lead to better health. Kinesiology is a way of empowering the individual to meditate and make these changes, themselves, thereby making the individual in large part responsible for their own health.

Allopathic practitioners, no doubt, are incredibly frustrated by patients who should lose weight and stop smoking, but are never able to make the necessary lifestyle changes to accomplish these goals. A more wholistic, integrative approach helps to overcome these problems by making the patient part of the team.

It is interesting that Dr. J evolved from an initial interest in kinesiology into a much broader spectrum of "scientific", integrative, and "alternative" health approaches. Like others on our Board, Dr. J seems to have an unquenchable desire to know and understand more about how our bodies work and what makes us healthy and keeps us that way. As such, she is an invaluable asset, resource, and sounding "Board" for our non-profit's innovative approaches to health care.
