Kinesiology is a truly holistic approach to treating the whole person – emotionally, chemically, structurally, and energetically.

What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology (pronounced kin-easy-ology) is a way of identifying imbalances within the body by assessing the body’s ability to hold its muscles against gentle pressure. Using muscle testing allows investigation but without intrusion. Kinesiology is the science of muscle testing in relation to all body functions as developed by the Chiropractor, Dr George Goodheart, in 1965. Dr Goodheart discovered that when a muscle was tested, the result could reveal information about the energy of the organs of the individual. Each organ is related to a meridian (energy pathways used in acupuncture), and together the muscle, organ and meridian form a ‘circuit’ of energy. Muscle testing detects even minor imbalances within the energy ‘circuit’ allowing the opportunity to re-balance the depleted system.  Kinesiology supports the energy systems of the body, enhancing the natural body processes.

What a treatment entails:

You will usually remain fully clothed, lying on a treatment couch, and your kinesiologist will apply gentle pressure to arms or legs to assess the responses of different muscles.

Based on the feedback, your kinesiologist can then offer you an individual well-being plan. This may include nutritional supplements, stress release techniques, chakra balancing, flower remedies, light touch points and lifestyle changes including using established friendly, rather than unfriendly foods.

How many treatments?

This depends on the individual complaint – how long you have had it, and also how willing you are to fully commit to your own treatment, i.e. making suggested dietary or other changes into your daily life. Usually, most people feel an improvement in three to six visits and it may be recommended that you have a routine balance two or three times per year.
