- Kinesiology was developed in the 60''s by Chiropractors in the United States of America.
- Kinesiology is now the world''s fastest growing natural therapy.
- Uses muscle monitoring to assess and correct imbalances in the body''s different structures.
- Kinesiology is non-invasive; the client can keep all their issues in their head, thereby respecting the clients need for privacy.
The benefits of Kinesiology
In the model of Kinesiology there is a connection between the physical structures such as the muscles, bones, hormones, neurology, etc and the energetic structures such as the aura, chakras, meridians, etc. Muscle monitoring gives the practitioner the ability to assess the stress levels in the physical and energetic structures. After the source of the stress has been identified, muscle monitoring allows the practitioner to find what would be the most appropriate correction technique to correct the imbalance. This eliminates the need for guess work, thereby making the corrections very efficient.
WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY?
Kinesiology was originally developed by an American chiropractor called George Goodheart. He found that by testing muscles before and after he made a correction he achieved better results for his patients. As time progressed he was able to make a connection between various muscles and acupuncture meridians. By testing these muscles the kinesiologist can get a picture of what is happening in your meridian system and how this is affecting you. But, equally, the muscle testing can also show what has affected the meridians in the first place and indicate what is the best way to deal with that stress, be it emotional, physical, environmental, nutritional or mental.
So, kinesiology is a blend of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western techniques that allow a kinesiologist to treat you in a truly holistic manner. Each person''s session is unique to them. Kinesiology can establish connections between imbalances and can establish which is the priority issue to be dealt with and what is the most effective treatment.
Kinesiology uses a range of gentle yet extremely powerful techniques. These restore balance to your system and create and maintain health and well-being. You can function better on all levels. Kinesiology also allows the kinesiologist to draw on other healing techniques and modalities and integrate them into the session where appropriate and indicated by the muscle response.
Some people consider kinesiology to be one of the best methods to use to uncover and help the underlying causes of health problems that are difficult to find by any other means.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A TREATMENT
Your kinesiologist will first take a medical and lifestyle history. You can remain fully clothed in a Kinesiology session. The Kinesiologist will places your arms, legs or head into specific positions and then apply a light pressure. The quality of response to this pressure determines whether or not there is an imbalance in the muscle-organ-meridian circuit. A muscle test, as used by Kinesiologists, does not measure the raw physical strength. Imbalances even show up on body builders.
Muscle testing gives the Kinesiologist information and feedback from your body about its condition. Since our bodies accumulate imbalances in a certain order, they will return to health quicker if the imbalances are treated in a certain order. Through muscle testing, a Kinesiologist can assess the order in which to treat the imbalances. Usually, once a priority imbalance has been treated, you will see that other related imbalances disappear immediately.
Based on feedback from the muscle test, you and the Kinesiologist can discover exactly what is involved in your imbalances and devise a treatment plan. It may include nutritional supplements, various emotional stress release techniques, Bach Flower remedies, acupressure, gentle structural realignment, chakra balancing, light touch, firm reflex massage, suggested lifestyle changes and more. The exact treatment you receive depends on the feedback your body gives through the muscle test about what it needs to return to health.
