What Is Kinesiology

Kinesiologists believe at some deep unconscious level, your body knows exactly what it needs to be healthy. Kinesiology is an advanced and holistic therapy that is based on the science of energy balancing.

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.)

Imbalances within the body are located through the process of gentle muscle monitoring techniques, which assists in gaining an insight into muscle patterns. The real goal of any Kinesiology ‘balance’ is to identify the cause of any imbalance and then resolve it. These imbalances may be nutritional, emotional, structural, psychological, energetic, spiritual.

What methods are used in kinesiology?

Kinesiologists use muscle monitoring to ask the body for feedback regarding its current state. Muscle testing allows the kinesiologist to find the most beneficial technique from a toolbox of structural, biochemical, emotional, electrical and spiritual processes. Common balancing methods of kinesiology can include:

  • Tracing or massaging meridians
  • Gentle rubbing, holding or tapping acupressure points
  • Gem and flower essences
  • Strengthening systems with wholefood nutrition
  • Sound and tuning forks
  • Light and colour frequencies
  • Movement, breath work and physical releases
  • Belief system reframing
  • Clearing sabotage patterns
  • Relaxation and visualisation work

Kinesiology is beneficial for the following:

  1. Physical problems such as headaches, migraines, ligament, muscle, bone or joint pain or strain.
  2. Chemical imbalances such as food allergies/sensitivities/malabsorption, hormonal imbalances (PCOS, endometriosis, infertility), nutritional toxicity or deficiency.
  3. Emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, recovery from emotional overload (e.g. verbal abuse, death of someone close to you, severe accident, diagnosis of a disease).

Which conditions can't it treat?

Kinesiology does not treat or diagnose any medical conditions or named diseases nor do kinesiologists prescribe.
