Kinesiology is a gentle natural system of healthcare that uses painless muscle
testing techniques to determine subtle imbalances in the body.
The word kinesiology was originally used in connection with the science of joints
and muscles, but the holistic therapy commonly practised today has developed
from the testing techniques pioneered by the American chiropractor, George
Goodheart, in the 1960s.
There are various branches of kinesiology, but they're all based on the principle
that there is a relationship between disease and muscle responses.
On an energetic level, it is believed that our life force energy flows
through a series of pathways within the body, called meridians, and
when these energy channels become blocked or the flow is disrupted,
our health can be affected. The resulting muscle responses have been
found to reflect these disruptions within our energy systems, which
allows a trained practitioner to detect the source of the outward
physical, mental or emotional condition.
The muscle testing procedure involves the Kinesiologist applying gentle
pressure to various parts of the body - usually, but not confined to, the arms
or legs, in order to measure the response of the underlying muscle.
This testing can be carried out lying down, sitting or even standing, with the
client remaining fully clothed.
As the arm or other part of the body is moved into a specific position, the
practitioner will be able to determine from the resistance to the applied
pressure, where the energetic imbalances in the body are.
During a kinesiology session, the practitioner may use a range of techniques,
depending on their assessment of the resulting muscle responses.
These can include... massage or tapping specific points on the body, the use
of colour or sound, such as tuning forks, to balance the energy flow in the body,
nutritional advice, dietary supplements, flower or other plant based remedies,
or whatever healing modality they consider is needed to help bring the body
back into balance.
Kinesiology is a gentle holistic therapy that can benefit people of all ages, and is
used to treat a wide range of conditions. It can also be used as a regular
preventative therapy to keep the body, mind and spirit balanced, increase
energy levels and maintain optimum health and well being.
