What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a powerful alternative health therapy that uses both ancient eastern healing arts and western physiological science, grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology. It combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese Medicine to assess imbalances in energy and body function, having close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow.
Muscle monitoring is a natural feedback system which receives information via nerve pathways and the meridian system of the brain and body. Energy flows within the body can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which relate to every tissue and organ in the body and reflect the overall state of structural, chemical, emotional or spiritual balance.
Kinesiology bypasses the conscious mind, allowing the practitioner to build a picture about the state of our wellbeing, specifically relating to our goal or health issue, and helps to identify and relieve the stress which may be preventing us from enjoying optimal health and vitality. This gives us the power of choice in our life, allowing us to take charge of the way we relate to the past, present circumstances and future.
How can Kinesiology help me?
When we have imbalances in our body, mind and spiritual connection to ourselves, we can experience emotional disturbances, depression, learning disorders, weight issues, fatigue, friction at work, feeling like we don’t belong – the list can go on!
When there is conflict about what we truly desire or want to create in our life, we can become stuck in patterns, thoughts and emotions that don’t serve us. Kinesiology allows us to safely explore the underlying causes of these blockages and triggers, helping to identify and remove deeply held subconscious patterns. Once we understand why things keep happening in our lives, we begin to learn from our experiences. Life starts to make sense; we develop understanding and wisdom, and realize we have choice to create a more positive and balanced version of our life.

Frequently asked questions
How many Kinesiology balances will I need?
An initial 90-minute Kinesiology consultation is recommended, followed by 3 – 5 1-hour sessions, 2 weeks apart.
With most people, issues or physical pain that have been present for many years can take time to address and shift. Committing to fortnightly sessions initially can help your body to kick start the healing process, followed up with monthly maintenance sessions. This can help you to address and deal with stressors as they arise, to prevent them from turning into bigger problems.
What happens during a Kinesiology balance?
Your medical and lifestyle history will be taken followed by a confidential discussion about your goal or health issue you would like to work on. The balance begins by lying on a massage table face up and fully clothed. Muscle monitoring is the main tool used in Kinesiology and through this indicator muscle (usually the forearm) it allows access to information from the body and the subconscious. Each Kinesiology consultation is unique depending on the goal or issue that you are working on.
What happens after a Kinesiology balance?
Profound changes may be experienced emotionally, mentally and physically after a Kinesiology balance. Give your body time to adjust and be gentle with yourself, don’t make any major decisions or ‘over react’ to situations after a balance as your body is in the process of change. You may experience an emotional release of stress in the form of anger or pain, or new happiness, tears or other emotions, or become more reflective as an understanding of underlying issues is realized. You may also experience tiredness for a few days, whilst your body deals with toxins as a result of releasing long held stress, during which time you may need more water to assist with this release of toxins. These experiences are all positive and indicate that change is occurring.
