What is Kinesiology? Systematic Kinesiology is one of the fastest growing fields in natural health therapies. It is a complete natural healthcare system using muscle testing to identify what the body needs to restore and maintain health and well being.
The restoration of balance is achieved using kinesiology balancing techniques that address four key areas of the body
- Physical – Structural (muscles, tissue, bones…) balancing techniques to physically align the body
- Chemical – Identifying what the body is not getting that it wants (eg nutrition) as well as what the body is getting that it does not want (eg food sensitivity testing)
- Emotional – emotional techniques enabling support for past, present and future emotional issues.
- Electrical – Acupuncture meridians and combinations of acupressure holding points to balance our electrical field. Incorporating the philosophy of the ancient Chinese Traditional 5 Element Theory.
Muscle Testing is the tool of the Kinesiologist, used to identify the above. In Systematic Kinesiology we muscle test up to 44 muscles.
Each muscle is controlled by electrical circuits in the body, via the central nervous system (think of this as our electrical wiring). Our ‘electrical circuits’ connect our muscles, organs and systems into groups. By assessing the strength of a muscle we are also assessing the general balance/strength/function of the entire group related to each circuit.
It is important to stress that Kinesiology and muscle testing does not diagnose disease. Muscle testing allows analysis which detects functional imbalances. If these imbalances are ignored and allowed to accumulate disease may follow.
