What Is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology (pronounced KIN – EASY – OLOGY) monitors the movement of muscles. More importantly, Kinesiology monitors how our muscles respond to stress and things which cause us stress.

When we are under stress of any kind, our muscle fibres shorten both automatically and subconsciously. This is an ancient hangover that still exists from when we were preparing to run away from a predator back when we lived in caves.

In the modern day, this stress response still exists. Now, it gives us feedback on everything that causes us stress – the foods we eat, our jobs, income, relationships & friendships, negative thoughts and the numerous other things we worry about.

I use the tools in my toolkit to balance your body and your life. We will know that balance has been achieved when you think of the topic that we worked on and the muscle monitoring shows a locking and “balanced” muscle. 

Who Is Kinesiology For?

Kinesiology can be used for all sorts of imbalances and dis-eases. 

Here are just some of the ways you can use Kinesiology:

  • To achieve your personal goals, by overcoming subconscious resistance and increasing your commitment to achieving them
  • To improve your posture and correct deviations
  • To increase your concentration
  • To improve your sports performance
  • To reduce and alleviate pain
  • To reduce your stress, anxiety and panic attacks
  • To improve recovery times of injuries
  • To improve your rehabilitation
  • To identify foods that lower your energy and which foods support and raise your energy

What happens in a session?

At the start of the session, we will begin discussing your medical history and a list of the areas of your life that you would like to work on and improve.

Which area you want to work on is your choice and could range from anxiety and feeling overwhelmed, stressed in the modern day, to improve your relationships, improve your abundance, work on your business, pain management, weight loss or reach a specific goal. Once you have chosen the area of your life you want to work on, I will use muscle testing to identify the best approach to help you.

What’s on the menu?

Imagine you are going to go out to eat for the evening.

First, you need to decide what cuisine you want to eat, Chinese? Indian? Pizza? Or Sushi?

Once you have chosen your restaurant, you need to decide what dish you want to eat. Chow Mein? Kung Pow Chicken? Pork Balls? Egg Fried or Special Fried Rice?

This is a bit like a session with a Kinesiology Practitioner. Each Kinesiologist has a unique set of tools according to their training that they can offer you to reduce stress and bring balance back to your life.

When you come to see me and tell me what you want to work on, we can then use muscle testing to get feedback from your body while asking the question, “from all the treatments I have learnt which one do you want to use?” (Which cuisine is best for you?)

Then from that treatment, I ask and muscle test which specific technique do you want to use? (Which dish would you like to eat?)

This means each session is bespoke and tailored for you to reduce the stress, change your reaction to it and to bring both your body and that area in your life into balance.

How long does a Kinesiology Session last?

You can choose between a 60-minute appointment or a 90-minute appointment. With a 90-minute appointment, there will be more time to explore the issue or to bring into balance the topic that you want to work on.

What do I need to wear?

A Kinesiology session is delivered while you are clothed.

It is usually delivered on a massage couch however it is also possible to receive it seated or standing if required.

Do I need to prepare anything?

Mostly no, there is nothing to prepare. If you need to bring something for a session it will come up in the muscle testing at the end of the session. I will ask the question is there anything that we need to prepare for the next session. e.g. a food that needs testing or something to bring from home.

How often do I need a balance?

When you are happy to come for several Kinesiology sessions or if you buy a block of sessions, then I can muscle test at the end of the session for a range of time when it is best for your next session, e.g. between 1 and 3 weeks from your last appointment. 

Can I use Kinesiology by itself or with other modalities?

Muscle monitoring can be used to identify which modality is the best one to use. We can use it to ensure that we are giving you the best possible balance and treatment for the area you want to work on.

Kinesiology In My Life

I strongly believe it is important to walk my talk. For me, that means using the techniques that I use with others for my own life. Here are a couple of examples of how I have used Kinesiology to help me in my own life.

Kinesiology is the first treatment I tried in my journey into complementary therapies. I used it initially to overcome my anxiety and it took approximately 6 sessions over 8 weeks to bring me into balance and for my panic attacks and anxiety to go away.

I fell in love with the ability to get feedback from my body and mind by using the muscle monitoring and so, whenever I felt frustrated, stuck or overwhelmed in any way I would return for a follow-up balance.  

At the end of each session, the Kinesiologist would check when my body was ready for another balance, so I knew when my next appointment was due.

Later I realised I could train in Kinesiology and I took my first class in 2005.

Since my first class, I continue to use Kinesiology regularly, I am always improving my training and continuing to get a balance myself regularly.
