About Kinesiology/FAQs

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a complementary health system that uses muscle response testing as a way of communicating with the body. Through muscle tests kinesiologists gain an understanding of what the main issues are and what the body needs to restore health.

The approach is completely holistic, with a kinesiology assessment taking into account emotional, physical, chemical, energetic and structural aspects that may be stopping a person from getting better. This 360 degree approach is one of the reasons why kinesiology is so often helpful in getting to the bottom of stubborn health issues.

Kinesiology is a calming, gentle therapy that many people find delivers much needed relief.


How does muscle response testing work?

Muscle response testing involves the client resisting light pressure placed upon muscles that are associated with their problem. Each muscle corresponds with an organ and an acupuncture meridian. Biofeedback obtained from muscle testing identifies imbalances in the meridian energy circuits, helping to determine:

  • the location of the imbalance/problem
  • the type of imbalance - mental, physical, chemical, energetic or structural
  • what is required to address the imbalance and support the body

Muscle testing is non invasive, painless and suitable for all ages, including babies and the infirm.


What happens in a kinesiology session?

Before your session I will ask you to complete a questionnaire regarding your health history. In the first session we will spend some time discussing this and your current health challenges. I will carry out a series of muscle response tests which will indicate the areas we need to focus on.

I will then carry out balancing techniques, which can include holding reflex points to improve blood supply to the affected area, massage to stimulate lymph supply and drainage (helping to remove toxins) and meridian tracing to promote the healthy flow of energy throughout the body.

At the end of the session I will suggest a plan, which may include nutritional support and lifestyle changes.

The assessment is done through clothing, there is no need to undress, and loose or stretchy clothing is recommended.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends very much on the health issue and how long you have had it. As a guide, most clients require between three to six visits. Long term issues may require more, but whatever the issue most clients start to see changes early on.

Having regular kinesiology sessions can help to prevent issues occurring and after experiencing the benefits of kinesiology many clients choose to have routine sessions two or three times a year as a way of maintaining good health.


How much do you charge for a kinesiology session?

£75 initial appointment - duration approx 75 minutes

£60 subsequent appointments - duration approx 60 minutes (except Midhurst*)

£15 additional time - for each 15 minutes (additional time to be mutually agreed during the session)


*Please note subsequent appointments at Midhurst are the same rate and duration as initial appointments due to the way the room appointments are set by the venue.


Not sure if kinesiology is for you?

Please feel free to contact me to find out more about the therapy. I also offer taster sessions to help you decide if kinesiology is for you. The cost for taster sessions is £10 - this amount is deducted from your first appointment should you decide to go ahead. More information.
