What is kinesiology?
Often pain or discomfort that we experience in the body is symptomatic of an underlying issue. For example back pain can be caused by stress, a poor diet or a lack of water. Recurring headaches may be caused by emotional stress, neck problems, food sensitivities or something in your everyday environment, for example over exposure to electromagnetic devices.
Kinesiologists use gentle and precise muscle tests to tap into the biochemistry of the body in order to identify the problematic areas and tackle the root cause, whether that be emotional, physical, chemical, energetic or structural.
Kinesiology is a calming therapy that many people find delivers much needed relief. For more information please watch the video or contact me. Kinesiology is much better experienced than explained, and for this reason I offer short taster sessions (see below).
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 many clients choose to go on and have routine sessions two or three times a year as a way of maintaining good health.
