What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a system of natural health care that combines muscle testing and monitoring, together with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to assess energy and body function, applying a range of healing techniques to improve health, general wellbeing and increase vitality.

This popular therapy recognises there are energy flows within the body that relate to every organ and tissue that go to make the body a living, feeling being. These energy flows can be evaluated through muscle testing, which in turn reflect the body’s overall energetic state of structural, biochemical or emotional balance.

Energy Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms and does not treat named diseases, nor does it cure or diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with energetic imbalances in the body’s overall energy. In this respect, kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow.

How does Kinesiology work?

Kinesiologists use muscle feedback as a stress monitor to identify imbalances in their client’s structural, biochemical, mental and emotional energy systems. By correcting these imbalances, the kinesiologist can re-activate the body’s built-in healing ability as well as identify external factors affecting the client’s well-being. Kinesiology has a fundamental premise that the human body has an innate healing energy and is always doing its best to care for itself, but it needs to be helped sometimes into a better position to achieve this care.

Your body is the authority about you. It can give you feedback via muscle responses, such as which stressors weaken you; what you need to build self-esteem and heal your life; how to increase your vitality and have physical, emotional, chemical and energetic balance in your life. Muscle monitoring interacts with the being on a much deeper level than thought processes only.

With Kinergetics® Kinesiology we can access the subconscious emotional reaction locked in the muscle's memory and help re-pattern the response through the acupuncture system along with other neurological reflexes. This not only improves the function of muscles but also releases undesirable reactions to stress that manifest in the body.

Grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology

Kinesiology enables people to detect and correct imbalances that relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, minor injuries, and other issues they meet in their daily life. A non-invasive method, Kinesiology is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology and uses muscles as monitors of stress and imbalance within the body.

Kinesiology, in this way, taps into the energies that other modalities do not necessarily assess. Kinesiology looks at what is beyond the symptoms. Kinesiology does not diagnose or treat diseases. It is only concerned with the imbalances of the energy. Energy balancing helps the person become closer to achieving his or her goals.
