What is Kinesiology ?

Kinesiology (pronounced Kin-easy-ology) is a natural therapy based on both Eastern and Western health knowledge that uses muscle monitoring as a means of finding the best correction for your issue.

It is a perfect therapy for the individual that wants to take responsibility for their health – whatever the health issue.  It isn’t my intention to replace other forms of health care but to work alongside them to help you receive benefits of all types of health care you may already  be receiving.

So what can kinesiology actually do for the client?  If nothing else, my clients leave my clinic feeling calmer.  Some can’t actually feel the difference as it is so long since they have felt calm and they can’t easily identify that feeling but you can see it in their face – a relaxed face that they didn’t have when they arrived.  Kinesiology can certainly help with physical pain but also has a deep impact on the mental and emotional pain so many people are experiencing at the moment with the global upheaval we’re all living.

Kinesiology works with the interaction between the nervous system (the body’s electrical circuit) and every other system in the body.  This is why we, as Kinesiologists, can help in so many different health issues.

Unfortunately, in our Western minds, we don’t have the language to easily explain what Eastern Medicine can do.  It is very easy to think that we need to see something for it to actually be there, and yet, there are times in our day when you may feel someone enter the room behind you, or know someone is looking at you without first seeing this happen.  This is the energy that we all put out and receive – without even trying!  To add to this, Kinesiology can also be provided over distance.  That is, you do not have to be physically in my clinic to receive the benefits of a Kinesiology session.  For some this can be a mind-blowing concept but for many indigenous cultures, this has always been known and accepted.

The points that acupuncturists work with when placing a needle are the same points I use as a Kinesiologist but I can use touch, sound, scent (essential oils), flower essences, crystals and light – NO needles!

I have protocols to follow and the muscle monitoring (see “Muscle Monitoring” tab in the “Kinesiology” section) directs me to what your body wants to help you feel better.  Indeed, any therapist that uses muscle monitoring to assess what they need to do for you, is using kinesiology – even if they call it something else.
