Pronounced “Kin-easy-ology”, it is a technique which tests muscle-responses to identify imbalances within your system. It is now being offered as training to physiotherapists, as it adds another dimension to their work. Kinesiology looks each person as a whole, and works with body, mind, emotions and spirit to restore overall balance to the system.

Kinesiology may be used to focus on specific issues, or as a general boost to overall health, wellbeing and energy levels. Using a range of techniques, kinesiology offers a gentle approach to easing physical and emotional symptoms, helping to make changes in all areas of life. It operates at different levels, allowing the kinesiologist to help with physical conditions, but also emotional, mental and energetic factors which are affecting the overall health of the person.

A kinesiologist looks at the structure and muscles of the physical body, at nutrition and hydration, and at emotions, beliefs and potential stressors on the system. I find the use of muscle-testing to discover what is really going on in a person’s overall system is such a wonderful resource.

I had regular sessions with a very skilled Kinesiologist who helped me to recover from a health crisis, and I continue to have regular sessions as part of my care for myself. I never expected to train in it myself, though! It was originally a means to an end, so that I could go on a workshop to learn how to integrate Primary Reflexes, and at that stage, this was only open to kinesiologists. I trained, and found that it was a catalyst for drawing together the various techniques I had learned into a holistic way of working.

NOTE: A Kinesiologist does not diagnose medical problems, neither does it replace the need for medical attention.
