What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology may be understood as a system of holistic/natural healthcare which combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function, applying a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques to improve health, well-being and vitality.

Using the way a muscle responds as a yardstick, the function of the lymphatic system, vascular system, digestive system and other physiological functions can be assessed.  Muscle testing reveals energetic, structural, and bio-chemical imbalances, which are then rectified with different techniques such as light massage of specific reflex points, meridian tracing, de-stressing techniques, nutritional & supplement advice to name but a few.

Kinesiology is a therapy which uses gentle muscle testing to obtain bio feedback from your body intelligence to decipher what factors are involved in your health problem.  Your health is comprised of many different areas, namely:

Spiritual (Thoughts/Beliefs/Emotions/Spirituality)

Chemical (Food/Nutrition/Hormonal balance/Brain  chemical balance/Toxins etc.)

Structural (Spine & bone alignment/Posture/Muscle  tension & dysfunction)

Energetic (Aura/Chakras/Acupuncture meridians)

Through a series of kinesiology treatments, your  practitioner will investigate and treat any or all of the  above areas.  The beauty of kinesiology lies in the ability to  communicate with the immense  wisdom of your body intelligence through the muscle testing technique.  In a treatment, your  kinesiologist will identify through muscle  testing, the primary area that requires attention, and through  the testing, your body wisdom will only  permit treatment in the order/area that is of most significance at any given time.  Thus you are not only being treated in a non-invasive way but also in harmony with your bodies innate healing wisdom.

What to expect from a session

Systematic Kinesiology works in a verynon-intrusive manner. You remain fully Kin action shotclothed throughout the whole session (with exception of your shoes), lying comfortably on a massage table. The practitioner will put your arms and legs in different positions and test by applying light pressure to them. It is not a competition of strength, so you do not need to be strong or fit for this. Once an assessment is complete, any imbalances found will be attended to using different gentle techniques. The practitioner will also be able to give you some very helpful nutritional advice, as well as suggested exercises for you to do at home. The whole session takes approximately 1 + 1/2 hours and will leave you feeling pleasantly relaxed.

How many sessions will I need?

We are the sum total of all our experiences. If you have been under stress for a long time then it is understandable that one session isn’t going to give you the best chance of recovery. Still, we have to start somewhere and usually it is expected that a client will need between 3-6 sessions, spread over several weeks/months to see significant improvement.

    1. Hi Mike,

      Yes, I provide food sensitivity testing. (about 100 different foods)
      I also provide other services along with the food sensitivity testing as your symptoms may or may not be a reaction to something you are eating.
      Some symptoms can also be due to certain “imbalances” within the body and can be detested and rectified with Kinesiology.
      I am contactable on 085 759 3622 if you wish to discuss this further or if you wish to book in for a session.
