What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a non-invasive complementary, natural therapy using biofeedback (listening to the body) to find and treat energy imbalances. Through gentle muscle testing techniques (such as gentle tapping, massage and acupressure), I pick up on your body’s reflex responses. I then use this information to develop an individual treatment plan to reach your goals.
Your unique treatment plan
As your kinesiologist, I will develop an individualised treatment plan just for you. Drawing from a toolbox of natural, holistic techniques, your plan could include:
- holding, tapping and massaging acupressure points
- flower essences
- principles of homeopathy
- lymphatic massage
- energy healing
- acupuncture meridian points
- nutritional guidelines
A triad of health
Health isn’t just a physical state. Just like when you’re nervous and your heart starts racing and your stomach feels sick, emotions and mentality have a huge impact on how a person performs or feels. Similarly, benefits you feel when eating a diet that is just right for your requirements is elating and energising! One has to treat all components of the triad of health to be truly healthy, happy and energised. Kinesiology as a modality and myself as a practioner look at the triad of health, mental/emotional, nutritional and physical. Any of these components could be holding someone back from being their very best and achieving their goals.
Discover what’s getting in the way
Kinesiology is not just for healing. Improvement at school, work, home, in sports, relationships or just achieving that goal to go to sleep every night at a reasonable hour are all valid goals that kinesiologists assist people with regularly. Kinesiology can discover what is stopping a person from achieving their goals and move through any emotional or physical blockages.
The body knows the answers
The gentle art of muscle monitoring allows the kinesiologist to get feedback from a person’s body and really get to the bottom of an issue.
Eczema, food intolerances, trauma, pain – all these issues and more have a root cause and the truly holistic nature of kinesiology means it can be found and resolved. Of all the natural therapies, kinesiology uses the body to determine which body system needs assistance to heal.
So how does it work?
The simplest way to explain kinesiology is through examples. One simple example may be that a person feels tired after a 5km walk. We should feel energised after walking, not tired, so we can identify that this person has an imbalance of energy. The kinesiologist will muscle test to determine what the body requires to correct this imbalance. It may present that this person requires acupressure on one or more points on the feet. Talking through an associated emotion during the technique will allow us to discuss why this might be an ongoing issue for this person. Upon ‘clearing’ both the issue and the acupressure points, this person will find they are no longer tired walking 5km, but energised!
Another simple example may be a person who has suffered from sciatica for many, many years and is currently managing the pain with painkiller medication. This person may ask their kinesiologist to remove the need for medication due to contraindications with other medication. The kinesiologist will use muscle testing to find the correct pain relief technique this person requires. It may result in the person tapping a particular point slowly whenever the pain presents which completely rids the person of this sciatica pain. The kinesiologist will teach the person how to rid their pain whenever they require it, so the person does not need to keep coming back for pain relief.
