Kinesiology is a very personal therapy as it concentrates on each patient as an individual, using muscle testing which may help identify the root causes of problems and not just manage the symptoms. It encompasses many aspects of a person's wellbeing, and may help problems as diverse as irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, back pain and skin complaints. Candida, allergies, parasites and toxicity may also be identified and supplements found to help eradicate them.
Kinesiology may be used as a diagnostic tool enabling the kinesiologist to identify the triggers of chronic symptoms which a person may have been suffering from for a long time but doctors have failed to diagnose.
In 1964 a chiropractor called Dr George Goodheart developed applied kinesiology or muscle testing to identify blockages in the electromagnetic energy fields of the body when a person is exposed to or in contact with an allergen. Muscle testing bypasses the conscious and subconscious mind and a strong muscle may weaken when a suspected allergen is in contact with the body.
It may be very useful for pinpointing food intolerances which don't show up in hospital tests for allergies, as intolerances don't provide an instant reaction to pinprick tests but manifest their symptoms over a longer period of time. Removing the offending foods may improve digestive health, which has the knock on effect of helping a person feel and function better.
Kinesiologists are trained to carry out a variety of techniques which may alleviate health problems, from a manual technique to relieve the pain endured by those who have a hiatal hernia to a gentle spinal technique for physically balancing the body thereby reducing back pain and many others in between.
How Does Kinesiology Work?
One explanation of how kinesiology works is that it is the opposite of the 'fight or flight mechanism' whereby when the brain senses a physical danger adrenaline is produced and blood and energy are sent to the body's extremities enabling us to either thump someone or run away. When a more subtle threat is perceived, the blood and energy are sent to the body's vital organs to protect them, depriving muscles of energy and thereby temporarily weakening them.
I find it easier to liken it to the reaction of most women's knees if George Clooney walked into the room! They would definitely weaken! It is involuntary and it is an immediate reaction.
In short, muscles will remain 'strong' when they are working properly but when a substance is introduced which upsets that body then the muscle will temporarily 'weaken'.
I work with vibrational test vials for both conditions or symptoms and for at least 150 different foodstuffs, aiming to help my patients regain a feeling of wellbeing after many years of suffering unidentified symptoms.
Kinesiology also utilises techniques from Traditional Chinese Medicine like stimulation of acupressure points and balancing chakras from Indian Ayurvedic therapy.
I have been trained to carry out Chakra Vital Force balancing which balances the meridians as well as the chakras making it a more compehensive treatment.
Is Kinesiology Right For Me?
Kinesiology is suitable for most people of any age, from babies via surrogate testing to a delightful patient who is now ninety-five and has proved a swift, reliable and non-invasive way of helping patients suffering chronic symptoms to regain their health in a reasonably short period of time, although this can depend on what that person is suffering from and how long they have been suffering.
Young children and babies may be tested using an adult as a surrogate.
Patients may improve after a couple of treatment sessions but those with more complex conditions may take longer.
