What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is based on the principle that the body has innate healing ability and power to heal itself and is at all times doing its best. However, there are times when there are too many internal and external stresses affecting us, and the body needs to be helped into a better situation to achieve this.

These stresses reveal the energetic imbalances of the associated organs, glands and systems and also identify the underlying emotions/beliefs/ attitudes - suppressed or subconscious, which run the operations of the physical body.

In this way, Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook.

Kinesiology looks beyond the symptoms and is concerned with all imbalances in the mind-body system rather than adopting a diagnostic approach by treating a disease. Kinesiology does not prescribe for a disease but rather identifies the causes of all ailments or issues and balances these energetic imbalances.

Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments only. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal/issue whether it is to do with work performance, relationships, career goals, health, weight loss, overcoming fears, phobias and addictions, enhancing memory/learning and coping better in life in general.

By identifying the causes behind all limitations - conscious and unconscious - we align ourselves to experience dynamic healing shifts in our mind-body system, our lives and thus have more energy for living and achieving our desired outcomes.

.The British Parliament defined and recognised Kinesiology as
…literally the study of body movement, (which) encompasses holistic health disciplines that use gentle manual muscle testing or monitor information about a person’s well-being. …Kinesiology identifies factors that block the body’s natural healing process. These dysfunctions are rectified by attention to reflex and acupressure points, the use of specific body movements and nutritional support. Holistic Kinesiology can relieve pain, stress, muscular and nervous disorders; detect allergies and nutritional deficiencies; assist with psychological (issues) and learning (difficulties), stimulate energies and release untapped potential.

When should I see an Kinesiologist?

Kinesiology may be helpful in the following cases:

Injuries that do not respond to other treatments
Recurrent Aches and Pains
Fibromyalgia
Weak/tight muscles
Lower back pain/ Neck stiffness
Allergies/ food sensitivities
Emotional Resolution, Grief, Loss, Relationships
Depression
Adrenal Exhaustion
Trauma/stress
Learning Difficulties/Attention Deficit Disorders
Negative Behaviours
Compulsive obsessive disorders
Fears, phobias and addictions
Cravings (drugs, stimulants, food)
Vaccination stress
Candida and yeast infections
Weight gain
Insomnia
Low self esteem
Lack of self-confidence
Blocked creativity and self-expression
Delayed speech and communication skills

In fact, Kinesiology can be used to treat any personal issue.

How is Kinesiology Performed?

-Kinesiology Balance
A Kinesiology balance(treatment} encompasses a whole range of therapeutic/healing modalities such as rubbing Neuro lymphatic points, holding Neuro vascular reflexes, sedating over-energy meridians, tonifying under-energy meridians, strengthening weak muscles or balancing tight/over facilitated muscles that cause pain and restrict movement.

Moreover the goal of any 'balance' is to identify the bottom-line cause of the various stresses/ malfunctions in the whole mind-body system and then to balance them. Although the stress is present on the physical level the root cause of that neck pain or high blood pressure might be on an emotional or mental level. Therefore the body would need to be balanced on a physical, emotional and mental level simultaneously for the stress to be resolved.

Stresses vary and can present many symptoms which makes it complicated to treat yet the root cause will be the same for structural, nutritional, bio-chemical, emotional, mental, electrical or even spiritual stresses in the mind body system. Something as simple as an outdated negative” attitude" or a forgotten memory may be the cause of a tight sore neck muscle or lumbar pain that does not respond to conventional treatment.

The essential tool upon which Kinesiology relies is the muscle feedback system, a useful piece of human wiring that gives instant access into the holistic information held by the core operating unit of the entire body-mind system - the subconscious mind-brain.

-Muscle Monitoring
Holistic Kinesiology uses manual muscle monitoring as a bio-feedback system which identifies where all stress patterns are located in the structural, biochemical, emotional, mental and electromagnetic systems of the mind-body system.

Muscle monitoring feedback also indicates to a kinesiologist how to release these energy blockages/stresses in order to restore balance or homeostasis for health and well-being of the client.

In this way muscle monitoring uses the body’s own wisdom, by accessing all information about the mind-body via the neural pathways of the most sophisticated computer in the world – the human brain, which stores all our memories, traumas, stress patterns, unconscious beliefs and unconscious motivations for our sometimes ‘outdated’ behaviour.

-How Does It Work?
The goal of a kinesiology session is to ‘balance’ the causes of the stresses involved.

The number of sessions you may need varies from one individual to another. Some people need a few; others need more over a period of time. However, a basic guide is that each kinesiology session balances the mind-body system in relation to the stresses, at which point the healing begins.

Balance

Without identifying and balancing the causes we simply do not fully heal. A balance is something to look forward; as it allows us to move on from the pain or discomfort that we might be in now.

It works on the principle that the body has innate ability and power to heal itself and is at all times doing its best. However, there are times when the body needs to be helped into a better situation to achieve this.

In this way, Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook.

Kinesiology is not limited to only dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal/issue - whether it concerns work performance, relationships, career goals, health, weight loss, overcoming fears, phobias and addictions, enhancing memory/learning, or coping better, in general.

By identifying the root causes behind all issues/limitations, we remove the boulders - conscious and unconscious - that stand in the way of us Being, Living and Achieving our desired outcomes.

Does it hurt?

Kinesiology is physically very gentle but oftens produces profound mental and emotional shifts.

Can I get rebates from my health insurance?

Some Health Insurers cover Kinesiology. Please check with your provider regarding this.

The History of Kinesiology

Kinesiology has developed from manual muscle-testing by two chiropractors in the early 1960’s, Dr Goodhart and Dr Thie.
Goodhart formed the science of Applied Kinesiology widely practised by many chiropractors around the world today. It uses the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) paradigm based on meridians and their associated muscles to find stresses in the body, which are directly and indirectly, involved with spinal/vertebral subluxations and misalignments as well as stresses of the organs, glands and systems related to the meridian/muscle relationship.
