Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a non-invasive method that uses gentle muscle feedback and body awareness to promote health and well-being. It can help you to reduce stress and pain, improve your performance at school, work, sport and in relationships.

Kinesiology began with chiropractors in the 1960’s, who combined their knowledge with techniques from Chinese Medicine and other natural therapies to create a self-help program for their patients.

Muscle testing is the essential tool which Kinesiologists rely on. The muscle will either hold easily when tested with a light pressure or give way, providing information about the muscle and its related meridian energy.

A range of natural approaches are used to correct the imbalances found - including personal goal setting, emotional stress release, techniques to address muscle imbalance, coordination and posture. Exercises for enhancing learning and performance, balancing the chakra system and using flower essences are more examples of the ways a kinesiologist will balance your energy system.

The principles of Kinesiology are based on the traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy of supporting an ongoing state of wellness rather than being motivated to address issues only when we are unwell. You may be given advice or self-help techniques to follow up at home.  To begin with, three sessions are recommended.
