Understanding how Kinesiology works

Kinesiology restores balance to the whole system and in this way, facilitates the self-healing process. It can increase energy and vitality, prevent illness, improve posture, relieve physical pain and tension, release and manage emotions and stress, enhance brain function and co-ordination and help us discover individual nutritional needs and sensitivities.

A Kinesiology balance can be used to improve or solve a huge range of issues from physical, to emotional and beyond! If you're feeling stressed, unwell or overwhelmed, re-balancing with kinesiology can literally help you change your life.

Kinesiology is one of the fastest growing and most interesting developments in modern natural healthcare. There are different types of Kinesiology, but they all use muscle testing as the basis for their work. Kinesiology can detect imbalances in the body's systems in four key areas:

Chemical nutrition - hormones, pH, good health begins in the gut
Structural - bones, muscles, tissues
Emotional fears - phobias, trauma, stress
Electrical hydration - energy levels and energetic fields 

What can Kinesiology help?

Kinesiology can help with issues like Anxiety, fears and phobias, Allergies and food sensitivities, Arthritis and joint pain, Asthma, Back pains, lower back pain and slipped disc, Bloating and gas, Candida and thrush, Chronic fatigue and ME, Co-ordination and balance problems, Depression, Digestive problems, Dyslexia, Eczema, rashes and skin conditions, Frequent infections and immune problems, Heavy or restless legs, Headaches and migraines, Insomnia, poor sleeping patterns, IBS - constipation and diarrhea, Low energy levels, Menstrual and hormonal problems, Pain in the body, Poly Cystic Ovaries Syndrome , Repetitive Injury Strain, Sinus problems, Stress and Tinnitus. 

Who can benefit from Kinesiology?

Everyone can benefit from babies to athletes, whether you’re injured, recovering from surgery, constantly unwell, emotionally unbalanced or just want to ensure your body is balanced by having regular checks. When someone cannot be muscle tested, either because they are perhaps too young or have paralysis, a surrogate may be used. 

What happens in a Kinesiology session?

You remain fully clothed. The Kinesiologist will place your arms, legs or head into specific positions and then apply gentle pressure. Muscle testing gives the Kinesiologist information and feedback from your body about its condition and can assess the order in which to treat the imbalances. A treatment plan may include nutritional supplements, emotional stress release techniques, acupressure, gentle structural realignment, firm reflex massage, suggested lifestyle changes and more.

The history of Kinesiology

The word Kinesiology comes from the Greek work kinesis, meaning motion. In the medical sciences it is the study of muscles and the movement of the body. Applied Kinesiology was the name given by its inventor, Dr George Goodheart, an American chiropractor, in 1965. Goodheart discovered that when a muscle was tested it could reveal vital information, which was sometimes impossible to determine by any other method. In the last 55 years, the body of knowledge on Kinesiology has developed rapidly.

Kinesiology uses the muscle - meridian relationship to evaluate body function and identify any issues like mineral deficiencies, food types to avoid, emotional issues and physical damage or impairment. Kinesiology is renowned as a way of uncovering and helping the underlying causes of health problems.
