Koren Specific Technique (KST) is a protocol that can be applied to numerous healing arts including chiropractic, osteopathy, medicine, dentistry, psychology, optometry, naturopathy and others.
The standards for how and where KST is taught is and always has been based on what best serves the interests of the members of the public who are seeking the help of the practitioners caring for them.
Practitioners attending KST seminars are expected to practice within the laws of the jurisdictions where they work and uphold the highest of ethical standards in patient/provider relationship: respect for the patient, their privacy, compassion, with keeping the goal of repairing the people of the world.
This passage attributed to Moses Maimonides encapsulates our ethical standards:
Inspire me with love for my art and for Thy creatures. Do not allow thirst for profit, ambition for renown and admiration, to interfere with my profession, for these are the enemies of truth and of love for mankind and they can lead astray in the great task of attending to the welfare of Thy creatures. Preserve the strength of my body and of my soul that they ever be ready to cheerfully help and support rich and poor, good and bad, enemy as well as friend. In the sufferer let me see only the human being. Illumine my mind that it recognize what presents itself and that it may comprehend what is absent or hidden. Let it not fail to see what is visible, but do not permit it to arrogate to itself the power to see what cannot be seen, for delicate and indefinite are the bounds of the great art of caring for the lives and health of Thy creatures. Let me never be absent-minded. May no strange thoughts divert my attention at the bedside of the sick, or disturb my mind in its silent labors, for great and sacred are the thoughtful deliberations required to preserve the lives and health of Thy creatures.
