What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology will change your life because It's All About Balance!


What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is based on the study of anatomy, physiology, advanced neurology and Chinese medicine. It is the most holistic of the healing arts, recognizing the importance of the body, mind and spirit in health and healing . All aspects of the person's structural, chemical, mental and emotional energy systems are given equal emphasis, focusing on releasing the cause of the problem versus just treating symptoms.
What is unique to Kinesiology is that it uses the gentle art of muscle testing as biofeedback to identify, educate and bring awareness of the stressors and imbalances in the body, so that they can be released and the body's natural ability to heal restored. Based on the muscle test the Kinesiologist will then use a range of natural therapies ( acupressure, nutrition, blood and lymph reflexes, chakra healing, essences, essential oils, color therapy, etc) to help you move through the issue.
Kinesiology has developed along the educational or energy model rather than the medical model of disease. This means we do not treat medical conditions. For example: we do not treat asthma, we balance the body energies in relation to a goal. A goal of being able to run for 30 minutes continuously may be used or whatever the client would like to achieve and currently cannot because of the asthma condition. By using a goal approach it allows us to go after the root cause of the problem. Instead of just fixing symptoms such as the breathing difficulties of asthma, the bigger question is why do you have asthma?

What is a muscle test?
This is a noninvasive, gentle test on a muscle to see if a muscle is locking or unlocking. This response is used as an indicator of the body's accurate feedback to identify stress and imbalances that are blocking the body's natural healing ability.

What are stressors?
Stressors are anything that cause the body to be out of balance. They can be emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, chemical or nutritional. This can be past, present or future stress. Stress can become stuck in our system for years. When in an emotional state a bio-chemical change is created in the body. For example, feelings of love have a positive effect on our bodies and boost the immune response. Feelings of anger and extreme stress cause bio- chemical changes that weaken the immune system and put us at risk for serious illness.

Who can Kinesiology help?
Kinesiology can assist anyone from the very young child to the mature adult and elderly and can even be used for animals.

Is Kinesiology safe?
When used properly by a trained practitioner who follows accepted protocol, Kinesiology is very safe and has no negative side effects.

How long does it take to work?
It varies from person to person, but it is not uncommon to see results while you are in a session. These improvements typically will continue to grow as time goes on, especially if there is home reinforcement to be done.
