What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a natural therapy which uses muscle testing to obtain biofeedback directly from the body. By using a light pressure, the practitioner can gain information from your body that may not have easily been obtained from the conscious mind.
Kinesiology is designed with the concept of the body being able to self-heal and works with energy systems such as the Chinese meridian system, chakras, the auric field and the physical body itself.
When you and your body are in perfect health, these energies flow in perfect balance. But when you undergo any stress, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual – your energies may then become unbalanced and this affects your ability to self-heal. As a result of this, you may experience illness or dis-ease. Eventually this lack of well-being may manifest as a physical ailment.
It is a common misperception that Kinesiology originated in the East. Kinesiology was actually developed by an American chiropractor, Dr George Goodheart in 1963. Since then various branches of Kinesiology have developed – all based on the scientific, neurological workings of the human body.
A Kinesiology Session
A brief medical and lifestyle history is taken before the initial session. You will remain fully clothed during a kinesiology session and it is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable clothing.
The use of muscle testing allows the practitioner to determine where your energy is blocked or unbalanced, what stressors and emotions are causing these blockages and what your body needs in order to restore balance. This is done by “talking” directly to your body and testing for a response in the muscles. One of the great things about Kinesiology is that what comes up in a session pertains to you and no one else. Each session is unique and will be different each time.
The better neurological options used to create balance vary and range from acupressure, the use of colour/light/sound/smells, balancing of meridians, use of herbs, nutrition, tissue salts, essences, movement, visualisation etc. Sometimes bringing awareness to the root cause of an issue, as well as understanding why is has and is still affecting you, is enough to help release it.
Who would benefit from Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is beneficial for people of all ages. If you feel you have become stuck in old patterns that keep you from reaching your wellness goals or your ideal life then perhaps kinesiology could be your helping hand.
Only you can heal yourself but with the unique approach of muscle monitoring, we are able to hand you the tools to change the patterns behind your actions, and replace them with more appropriate ones.
How many sessions?
This number of sessions depends very much on the individual. Usually, the client requires a minimum of 3 – 6 sessions. It is then recommended that clients have routine sessions 2 – 3 times a year or whenever the need arises. Kinesiology may also be combined with N.O.T.
Recovery of your health and well-being will depend upon the length of time you have had problems and your ability to avoid and resolve stressors in your life.
