What is Kinesiology?
The Kinesiology Federation gives the following definition:
Kinesiology, meaning the study of movement, describes a form of muscle testing as a biofeedback tool to look at what maybe causing imbalances in the body. Kinesiologists work with health and wellbeing issues, including stress, physical orders, nervous disorders, nutritional issues, emotional problems, and learning and behavioural difficulties.
Kinesiology focuses on resolving these issues and uses techniques to assist the body’s natural healing processes. Restoring an optimal state of wellbeing to the client is the aim of any Kinesiology session.
A balanced body is a healthy body. You have to experience it!
The word ‘kinesiology’ comes from the Greek work kineses, which means motion. In the medical sciences it is the name given to the study of muscles and the movement of the body. ‘Applied Kinesiology’ was the name given by its inventor, Dr George Goodheart, to the system of applying muscle testing diagnostically and therapeutically to different aspects of health care. Today Applied Kinesiology refers only to the parent system, as taught by the International College of Applied Kinesiology. As a number of different branches have evolved, the term Kinesiology has come to be accepted as a general term for all of these systems.
What to expect
Almost all Kinesiologists will give a session lasting one hour or longer. Much of the first session will be spent in gathering information, in order that the practitioner can built up a picture of the balance of your structural, nutritional and emotional state. The Kinesiologist will pay attention to any specific symptoms you may have, but all aspects will by covered, as it is a holistic treatment. At the end of the first session, the practitioner will be able to give you a summary of the main areas of imbalance that your body has shown. You may also be told about the corrections you have been given. You may be advised to attend weekly for three to four sessions, and then at less frequent intervals.
