Kinesiology is a name given to the study of muscles and the movement of the body. It is a therapy that has origins in acupuncture, chiropractic, osteopathy and Chinese medicine. An American Chiropractor Dr George Goodheart invented it in the mid 60’s developing the system of applying muscle testing diagnostically and therapeutically to different aspects of health care.
It is a holistic therapy that works on every aspect of health, the physical, psychological, emotional, nutritional and spiritual levels, to identify and relieve the stress that may be preventing the individual from enjoying excellent health.
It works on the basis that in order to have total health, we must look at the person as a whole. Factors that effect the physical body will not only have an effect on other parts of the body but will have an effect upon the mind and emotions too. For example, chronic back pain could lead to a person feeling depressed and by the same token, excessive worry could contribute to the development of a stomach ulcer or digestive problems.
Kinesiology makes use of muscle testing techniques to monitor the flow of energy throughout the body on a very fine level. The assessment techniques are good at identifying the causes of problems and can be useful in pinpointing the sources of ill health and fatigue that have no obvious medical causes. It lets the body reveal precisely where the problems may lie and what the body may need to improve the energy.
Feedback directly from the body indicates what is required to correct not only the presenting symptom, but also more importantly the underlying cause.
It is also useful for preventing possible health issues.
Corrections are made by gentle massage and touch on reflex and acupuncture points. Kinesiology makes use of specific body movements and may suggest changes in lifestyle or nutrition.
The kinesiologist will explain the muscle testing procedure and will place limbs in different positions whilst applying a light manual pressure to test muscle response. Skillful muscle testing allows the practitioner to pinpoint the cause and areas of imbalance and will test for the appropriate procedure or technique required to restore energy balance and health.
Most muscle tests are conducted while the client is lying down on a treatment couch. There is no need to remove any clothes other than shoes. It is more comfortable if they wear loose clothing as some tests involve raising their arms and legs.
Corrections are made by a wide variety of non-invasive, gentle techniques such as touching reflex points, rubbing trigger points and light massage. Advice may be given on nutritional requirements, dietary changes, exercise and simple techniques for reducing stress. At times flower essences and vitamin supplements are recommended or prescribed to support the treatment.
By restoring balance to the energy channels, Kinesiology stimulates the body's natural healing processes and overall efficiency.
Kinesiologists do not diagnose or treat specific illness or disease but work with the body's vital energies within a holistic model of health maintenance and enhancement.
