What is kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a specialised natural health care therapy that involves combining many different techniques for an integrated approach to recuperation. Its focus is mainly on re-training the person’s nervous system to adapt to all kinds of stress responses, either conscious or subconscious. The therapy looks beyond the symptoms of a person and recognises the patterns formed as a result of an accumulation of unresolved conflict.
Evaluation of a conflict or stress within the person is monitored by a change of muscle response. Many different muscles can be used to access and evaluate different organs, glands, systems and mental/emotional responses.
Kinesiology draws on the ancient wisdom of Eastern cultures and the latest research and understandings from the West of how the body and brain work together, to heal, create balance and to function efficiently and effectively.
How can a kinesiologist help you?
What sets kinesiology apart from all other health care modalities is its ability to communicate directly with the innate body intelligence through muscle monitoring.
Muscle monitoring provides the feedback that allows the Kinesiologist to identify stress in the body, find the specific corrections to reduce the stress, and monitor effectiveness of the corrections applied. This is an invaluable “evaluation and communication tool” to tailor health solutions to each person, taking guesswork out of providing effective health care.
Through monitoring the muscle response, kinesiologists can quickly identify which category of stress to address first; physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, energetic, or other specific areas, and then identify the personalised corrections the client’s health imbalance will respond to.
You might visit a kinesiologist when you feel like there is something ‘wrong’, but you can’t find the answer, and you’ve exhausted other options.
More common reasons might be:
- Anxiety and stress
- Feeling generally under-the-weather
- Insomnia or sleep issues
- IBS and constipation
- Menstrual problems
- To restore balance to your life
- Allergies and food intolerances
- Weight gain
To be a kinesiologist you need to be trained to Degree level. Always visit an accredited practitioner who is a member of a professional association like ATMS.
