Kinesiology embraces a range of health disciplines, and uses gentle manual muscle testing to monitor information about a person’s wellbeing.
Kinesiology originated in the 1960’s through the work of an American Chiropractor, George Goodheart D.C who used muscle testing to evaluate muscle function, posture and general body imbalances. Since this time there has been many inspiring contributors to the evolution of this holistic therapy.
Muscle monitoring is a powerful tool for rapidly locating and establishing the nature of various energetic imbalances or disharmonious patterns within the individual. The body/limb is placed into a specific position and gentle pressure is applied. The muscle will either ‘hold’ (i.e. the body/limb will remain in position) or the muscle will ‘unlock’. Thus the state of a muscle may communicate what is out of balance in the body and what treatment is needed to alleviate each stress condition present in the body. The client’s biocomputer indicates the therapy needed. Having identifies the factors that block the body’s natural healing process, the dysfunction’s are rectified by attention to reflex and acupressure points; the use of specific body movements and nutritional support.
Kinesiology combines Western techniques with Eastern wisdom (Chinese, Indian and Tibetan) to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health. What can Kinesiology be used for? Any stress in the body, whether physical, emotional, biochemical or physiological may benefit from kinesiology. Kinesiology simply is a de-stress technique. Through muscle monitoring it is possible to identify the contributing stress factors to a condition and ask the body what it needs for ‘balance’ to be reinstated.
