“Working with Nick has been a truly groundbreaking experience and I could literally hear one penny drop after another. It finally made perfect sense why some areas of my business were constantly jarring, where others are thriving without me even trying.
And utilising those insights has enabled me to take my relationships with my clients to a whole new level.

I feel so grateful that I cannot express it with words. It's like I could say: Hey, I'm not mad for being as I'm.
I'm in the way I'm because of my nature and it's nothing wrong with it. I have understood what I was feeling inside me had a reason. I'm getting proud of realizing how and who I am and you have helped me so much...

What is The Vitality Test measuring?
Via a short online survey, The Vitality Test is measuring your personal balance of five distinct Energies that the ancient Chinese first observed and identified nearly 3,500 years ago.
The Five Energies are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal
Your own blend of these Energies will predispose you to have certain feelings, thoughts and values. They influence how to see and respond to the world.
Will The Vitality Test put me in a box?
No, we're a Box Free Zone!
The many of personality tests available have a tendency to put you in a Box, with a style of being and behaving or they are polarity based - measuring where you stand between two poles. For example are you more Introvert or Extrovert.
The advantage of these tests it that they are relatively easy to design and create a sense of certainty and security for people.
The disadvantage is that Boxes tend to end up limiting people, or don't quite explain the full variance of behaviour.
Polarity based thinking is very divisive as it pushes people in one camp or another, which is the last thing society needs.
So, the Vitality Test doesn't measure along a polarity instead it's identifying a pattern of behaviour with many sides to it.
We're certainly a Box Free Zone!

Who created The Vitality Test?
The Vitality Test was created by Nicholas Haines. It is based on his 35 years in private practice working as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and international speaker.
For the majority of his time in private practice, Nicholas had at least a six-month waiting list to work with him. The Vitality Test aims to make these profound insights about our relationships, our value to other, how we see, respond and interact with the world freely available to a much wider audience.
How accurate is The Vitality Test?
The questionnaire is very accurate, but it is still measuring what you are telling us. If for example you were under extreme stress when you took the test, then it may shift your Energy balance slightly.
But don’t worry, the questionnaire will have still picked up the core of ‘who’ you are and your predominant Energies, and that is absolutely fine to work with.
Does my Vitality Profile change over time?
Your primary Energy that determines your profile will stay the same, but there may be slight fluctuations in the other Energies as we age.
For example, our Water Energy becomes more pronounced as we age, so some of the traits associated with that Energy - such as wanting to leave a mark or a legacy behind us increases as we age.
Other Energies will also change slightly, but the core Energy of who you are will remain consistent.
Why is The Vitality Test Free?
We believe that the power of knowing your Energy type and how that impacts on you, the world and others is so important for our planet for now and future generations that we want to make The Vitality Test available to everyone regardless of their circumstance or situation.
It's our way of spreading a little kindness.

No, we're giving you the full and complete Vitality Test for free, including a comprehensive report all about you, and supporting materials.
This isn't a cut-down version of the full test and there's no upsell to a more in-depth version down the line. This is the full Vitality Test for free, it's that simple.
