Kinesiology is a holistic approach to long-lasting health and vitality, with results that can be felt immediately. It melds ancient eastern energetic healing arts with western physiological healing sciences to address a wide-range of physical, emotional, mental, nutritional and spiritual issues.
WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY
Kinesiology is defined primarily as the use of muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body’s structural, chemical, emotional or other energy, to establish the body’s priority healing needs, and to evaluate energy changes brought about by a variety of therapeutic procedures.
Kinesiology combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function, applying a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques to improve health, wellbeing and vitality.
HOW IT WORKS
Kinesiology also recognises that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that go to make the body a living, feeling being.
These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body’s overall state of structural chemical, or emotional balance.
In this way, Kinesiology taps into energies that other modalities do not assess. Kinesiology looks beyond the symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases. Nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with imbalances in the body’s energy. In this respect, Kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow.
MOST COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS
Kinesiology can offer support and treatment for a wide range of imbalances from the physical presentations of chronic or acute pain, immune weakness, allergy and asthma, hormonal imbalance or fatigue. It is also a useful tool in treating emotional and intellectual issues like clarity of thought, stress responses or anxiety.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT
The first visit will commence with an assessment of the current and historical health which will inform the treatment objectives and treatment planning going forward. The assessment will corroborate previous assessments that the client may bring to the visit, for example xrays or blood test results etc. We then use muscle monitoring to investigate any current structural or functional imbalances in the body related to treatment objectives & may perform other non-invasive assessments as appropriate (e.g., tongue analysis). Treatment begins with the first visit and, depending on the objectives, treatment may be complete by the end of this session.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TREAT A CONDITION
For those seeking assistance with a specific condition, treatment length depends on multiple factors including the severity or complexity of the condition, treatment objectives, life interference and individual circumstances (such as current stress levels). It is not uncommon to see a Kinesiologist 1-3 times for some conditions, or more than 6 times for more complex conditions.
