Q: What is Kinesiology Therapy?
A:Through a combination of muscle monitoring, acupressure formatting and high quality corrections a skilled practitioner has the tools to that take their client from a state of chaos to healing. Corrections commonly used in kinesiology therapy include meridian and acupressure stimulation, emotional stress release techniques, neurolymphatic and neurovascular stimulation, and specific exercises to name a few.
Q: How does Kinesiology Work?
A: The major tool used in kinesiology is muscle monitoring, the body’s own biofeedback tool. Muscle monitoring provides access to all the physical, emotional and mental systems of the body and allows the practitioner to see where stress is causing dysfunction. How does this work? Every muscle in the body is connected to our central nervous system (brain) and when our brain registers stress this interferes with the neurological circuit and causes a muscle response. It is from this muscle response that the practitioner can identify all the stresses involved in the Clients issue/dysfunction whether it be physical, emotional, mental, nutritional or a combination of these. Through the same muscle response the practitioner can also identify what corrections the body needs to come back into balance.
Q: What can Kinesiology Help With?
A: While kinesiology helps with a wide range of health issues, you don’t need to be sick to see a Kinesiologist. This treatment can help you make positive changes by improving your overall health and well-being. Therapy is varied and can assist with emotional challenges, sports injuries, and much more. By retraining the muscles and nervous system, a Kinesiologist can open new doors to complete physical and mental health.
Q: Who can benefit from Kinesiology?
A: Everyone can benefit from Kinesiology, from the unwell to the very fit.
Q: What can I expect?
A: A Kinesiology session is non-invasive. The practitioner will use specific muscles as their muscle monitoring tool.
Q: Is Kinesiology a form of medical treatment?
A: No. We do not diagnose, treat or work with named diseases. We balance the body’s energy, thus promoting its own healing abilities.
Oxford University Study
Oxford University was recently involved in research into Muscle Response Testing, the primary tool of any Kinesiologist. When doctoral student Anne M Jensen first presented the results of her study on muscle response testing, the results were so impressive that the university staff didn't believe them and made her repeat the study to replicate the results. This she did. The sceptical faces were now interested. The results of this unknown testing format surprised everyone... by being a whole lot more reliable than they ever imagined. Having successfully completed her doctorate, Dr Jensen chose to have her research paper published open source and so the full study is now available online:
