What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a form of natural health care that works from the perspective that different muscles relate to different organs and healing systems in the body. Through specific muscle testing we can identify imbalances in the body and address them at their root, rather than the presenting symptom.
Muscle testing assesses the integrity of the muscle and its corresponding circuit – not its physical strength. A muscle test can show a physical answer of ‘strength’ to tell us there is a complete and working energetic connection and the related system is well balanced. If a muscle signals as ‘weak’, we know the energy of the associated organ and/or healing system is out of balance and needs addressing.
Each session is uniquely tailored to the individual and will integrate a variety of techniques and healing modalities such as: targeted lymphatic massage, Bach flower remedies, gentle realignment techniques, working with the meridian system used in Acupuncture, Acupressure, emotional stress release through eye movement and tapping, nutritional support, dietary and lifestyle advice… to name just a few!
How can Kinesiology help you?
Kinesiology follows a holistic or whole person approach. This means we treat the person, not the symptom. Every treatment will take into account your mind and emotions, key nutrition to support individual systems, the energetics of the human being and of course, your unique physical body.
Kinesiology helps to aid the body in restoring homeostasis and promote natural healing. Because of this, Kinesiology is for everyone!
Kinesiology can help with a wide range of issues such as chronic pain or fatigue, IBS symptoms, headaches, emotional processing following trauma/loss/stress, fears and phobias, behavioral or developmental issues, low immune system, skin issues (acne, eczema, psoriasis), disturbed sleep, allergies, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies and joint or body pain.
What does a typical session look like?
After an initial conversation to understand your background on your first visit, you will lie fully clothed on a treatment bed while a variety of simple and painless muscle tests are employed. These muscle tests can be thought of as a type of body language that communicates potential problems and solutions to both the client and the practitioner. A session is typically 1.5hrs in length.
