Kinesiology uses gentle muscle-monitoring techniques to access the subconscious mind and gain accurate information about your current issues and what is needed to help your body, mind and spirit to restore balance.
The aim of a Kinesiology session is to help restore balance to the body.
We use muscle testing to determine where you’re currently out of balance and often discuss some of the causes of these imbalances.
We then use feedback from your body (again through muscle testing) to determine what techniques will help to bring your body back into balance.
When you’re in a balanced state it is far easier to access your own wisdom so you can make decisions from a place of clarity.
An article about Kinesiology on the Better Health Channel describes it this way:
Kinesiology means ‘the study of movement’. It describes a form of therapy that uses muscle monitoring (biofeedback) to look at what may be causing ‘imbalances’ in the body.
Kinesiologists may treat a range of disorders including stress, muscular disorders, nervous disorders, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, emotional problems and learning and behavioural difficulties.
Definition of Kinesiology from the Australian Kinesiology Association
Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s well being. Originating in the 1970’s, it combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional,mental and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies the elements which inhibit the body’s natural internal energies and accessing the life enhancing potential within the individual.”
Definition approved by the Australian Kinesiology Association 1999.
Where does Kinesiology come from?
Kinesiology started from Chiropractic in the 1960s.
Kinesiology literally means “the study of movement”. George Goodheart, a Chiropractor, is recognised as the founder of contemporary Kinesiology. He began to observe and explore muscle monitoring techniques in the 1960’s.
Goodheart discovered that each major muscle had a corresponding organ relationship. This theory was soon expanded to include acupressure and the meridian system. Applied Kinesiology continues to be used by some Chiropractors and other health professionals.
