What is Kinesiology?
Accidents, injuries, trauma, emotional upheaval, negative thought patterns – any number of things in our day to day lives can cause disruptions in the energy system of the body. When the energy flow is disrupted it can be much harder for our body to function at its best.
Kinesiology aims to bring your body’s energy system into balance so your own natural healing response can flow. Grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology, Kinesiology uses muscle testing or monitoring to identify stresses and imbalances that may be affecting the body on structural, chemical, or emotional levels.
Incorporating elements of ancient Chinese philosophy, acupressure and massage, it aims to balance the person as a whole and target the causal factors stopping you from reaching your goals.
How can Kinesiology help you?
Because Kinesiology is aimed at finding the causes of issues and restoring the body to balance, it can be helpful with a wide range of problems, including:
Structural / Physical – pain, injuries, posture, flexibility, sports performance
Emotional – emotional trauma and pain, anxiety and depression, self-sabotage and negative thinking, stress and major life changes
Learning – brain integrations, learning enhancement, concentration and mental clarity
Overall wellbeing – stress reduction, goal setting and outcomes, confidence and self-esteem

how it works
When we encounter a stress our brain responds by momentarily shutting off our muscles to assess the stress and determine our ability to cope. Usually this happens so quickly we don’t notice, but if the stress is great enough, the effect on our energy system may be ongoing.
In Kinesiology we use this bio-feedback to identify where the energy system is stressed or imbalanced. We do this by using light pressure to test the integrity of the muscles’ function in a targeted way. Once we find the imbalance we can then utilise a range of techniques to help correct them.
The wonderful thing about Kinesiology is that we can use muscle testing to talk to your body and find out what is most beneficial. Because I’m talking to your body, each session is specific to you. The range of corrections used in Kinesiology includes stretching or moving particular muscles, rubbing or holding of reflex points, discussion of lifestyle changes, talking through emotions or goals and many more.
