What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a complimentary modality where the aim is to identify the root cause of any imbalance in the body and rebalance it.
Its effective results come from the way it works with the body’s natural healing process to restore balance and health. Through this modality, profound changes may be experienced emotionally, mentally and physically increasing a person’s health and wellbeing. When our system is functioning well, we feel well.
A kinesiologist combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health using the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s wellbeing.
Our bodies have a bio feedback system that can be read by how the muscle responds to muscle monitoring. When the body is under stress which can be anything from a nutritional or physical issue through to an emotional imbalance; these can block energy flow within the body causing specific muscle patterns. Muscle monitoring gains an insight into these muscle patterns. The kinesiologist will then determine the best strategy or corrections to restore balance and unblock the energy flow within the body.
What happens in a kinesiology session?
During a session a client lies fully clothed, face up on a massage table. The kinesiologist will gently monitor muscles and test acupressure points to determine what is going on in the body. Corrections will occur throughout the session which may include but are not limited to acupressure, tapping, emotional release or sound therapy.
Who would benefit from kinesiology?
The simple answer is EVERYONE. Who doesn’t need more balance in their life?
Because kinesiology reveals the body’s overall state of structural, chemical and emotional balance, it’s able to help with a wide range of issues. A visit to a kinesiologist could be for anxiety, stress at work or school, learning difficulties, overcoming fears and phobias, belief systems for relationships or your career.
Or it might be something more physical like persistent pain, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, nutritional imbalances, insomnia, energy or muscular pain.
