Kinesiology is a gentle non-invasive approach to healing – a means to bring all systems in the body into balance, on a physical, mental, emotional, bio-chemical and energetic level. The body must maintain balance by constantly monitoring the internal and external environment via the nervous system, and making appropriate adjustments to support good health. This treatment uses manual muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to assess the patient’s nervous system to find where an imbalance lies, and then deciphers the easiest method of correcting it. Almost like asking your body what’s wrong with it, and allowing it to determine and activate the best way to fix it.
The body’s mental, emotional and physical bodies are interconnected by energy pathways called a meridian system. Each of our 12 major organ systems has its own meridian line which peaks for two hours a day. By testing the resistance of a muscle when a small amount of pressure is applied to it, weaknesses and imbalances in its corresponding meridian can be identified.
We believe that problems arising within the energy system will eventually be reflected in the body and our job is to facilitate your body’s ability to self-heal. Muscle testing taps into the body’s adaptive system, giving us information to facilitate changes within your own healing process.
“Applied Kinesiology recognises that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism. When health is lost, something is interfering with the body’s adaptability, and it’s unable to cope with the different daily environmental stresses. Examination effort is directed towards how the body is dysfunctioning, the cause of the dysfunction and finally, the therapeutic efforts that will enable it to regain and maintain health.” – David S. Walther.
It can be of benefit to most people and can help in many conditions – from minor aches and pains to severe and persistent chronic health problems, some of which include:
Our role is to help your body unlock its own innate ability to heal itself; we are the facilitators in your wellness process. For this reason we often incorporate Kinesiology into our treatments and in so doing start your process of recovery. We believe in curing the cause and not the complaint, so with Kinesiology and all the other modalities, it’s important to combine them to get the best result.
