How can Applied Kinesiology help you?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) was developed from manual muscle testing by two chiropractors in the early 1960’s, Dr Goodhart and Dr Thie. In AK, muscle testing is used to identify the hidden stresses, underlying the meridian muscle relationship. These stresses reveal the energetic imbalances of the associated organs, glands and systems and also identify the underlying emotions/beliefs/ attitudes – suppressed or subconscious, which run the operations of the physical body.
Kinesiology as defined by the British Parliament is:
“literally the study of body movement, [which] encompasses holistic health disciplines that use gentle manual muscle testing or monitor information about a person’s well-being.
Kinesiology uses manual muscles testing to identify factors that block the body’s natural healing process. These dysfunctions are rectified by attention to reflex and acupressure points, the use of specific body movements and nutritional support.”
What is Muscle Monitoring?
AK uses manual muscle monitoring as a bio-feedback system to identify where all stress patterns are located in the structural, biochemical, emotional, mental and electromagnetic systems of the mind-body relationship, and indicates to the Kinesiologist how to release these blockages for healing and well-being.
Muscle monitoring uses the body’s own wisdom by accessing all information about the mind-body via the neural pathways of the brain – which stores all our memories, traumas, stress patterns, and unconscious beliefs which run the whole mind-body system.
How Does It Work?
It works on the principle that the body has innate ability and power to heal itself and is at all times doing its best. However, there are times when the body needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this.
In this way, Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook.
What is a “Kinesiology Balance”?
A Kinesiology balance encompasses a whole range of therapeutic/healing modalities, including rubbing Neuro-lymphatic points, holding Neuro-vascular reflexes, sedating over-energised meridians, strengthening under-energy meridians, strengthening weak muscles, and balancing tight/over facilitated muscles that cause pain and restrict movement. The goal of a kinesiology session is to ‘balance’ the causes of the stresses involved
How many sessions do I need?
It really varies from one individual to another. Some people need a few; others need more over a period of time. However, a basic guide is that each kinesiology session balances the mind-body system in relation to the stresses, at which point the healing begins. Without identifying and balancing the causes we simply do not fully heal. A balance is something to look forward; as it allows us to move on from the pain or discomfort that we might be in now.
What is Kinesiology used for today?
Injuries that do not respond to other treatments Adrenal Exhaustion
Recurrent Aches and Pains Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Fibromyalgia Learning Difficulties/Attention Deficit Disorders
Weak/tight muscles Fears, phobias and addictions
Lower back pain and Neck pain Cravings (drugs, stimulants, food)
Allergies/ food sensitivities Candida and yeast infections
Grief, Loss Weight issues
Depression Low self esteem/Lack of self-confidence
Anxiety/panic attacks Blocked creativity and self-expression
In fact, Kinesiology can help any issue.
