What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiologists use muscle feedback as a stress monitor to identify imbalances in their client's structural, chemical, mental and emotional energy systems. By correcting these imbalances the kinesiologist is able to re-activate the body's built-in healing ability as well as identify external factors affecting the client's well-being.

New Zealand Kinesiology Practitioners Accreditation Board (NZKPAB) definition

Kinesiology is defined primarily as the use of muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body's structural, chemical, emotional or other energy, to establish the body's priority healing needs, and to evaluate energy changes brought about by a broad spectrum of both manual and non-manual therapeutic procedures.

Explanation of NZKPAB definition
A fundamental premise of Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing its best to care for itself, but that sometimes it needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this care.

Kinesiology also recognises that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that go to make the body a living, feeling being.

These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body's overall state of structural, chemical, or emotional balance. In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases. Nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with imbalances in the body's energy.

In this respect, Kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow.

Where, as the result of injury, emotional trauma, nutritional or other unresolved stress, the energy flow is interrupted, the whole body is affected. The exact nature of blockage in the energy flow can be more closely identified by 'muscle testing'. Acupressure massage, light touch and other simple correction skills are used to restore muscle 'balance', which has a flow-on effect into total body energy.

Kinesiology is often called 'muscle balancing' or 'energy balancing' - helping the body into a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by 'balancing' its energies.

Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice - in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life generally.

This energy balancing that is at the heart of Kinesiology may involve dealing with one or more of the stress factors already mentioned: identifying a nutritional lack or excess, clearing a negative emotional component, relieving pain, stimulating the integration of muscle groups, or improving mental and physical coordination.



How does Kinesiology Work?

Kinesiology helps one access the inner knowing and find again the power of choice in one's life.



What are the benefits of a Kinesiology Session?

Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities do not assess. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms, Kinesiology does not treat named diseases nor does it diagnose them, Kinesiology is concerned with correcting imbalances in the body's energy and in this way it has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow.



Is it backed by science?

Meridian pathways have been mapped by modern medicine. Kinesiology is the science of energy balancing and is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology. Kinesiology uses muscles as monitors of stress and imbalance within the body.
