Kinesiology is a non-invasive complimentary, alternative therapy originating from a Boston orthopaedic surgeon in the early 20th century whilst working with polio and spinal nerve damage patients. He realised that muscles which “tested weak” often shared a common spinal nerve. In the 1960’s a chiropractor using kinesiology discovered a connection between various muscles and acupuncture meridians.
By "testing" certain muscles (i.e., applying a very gentle pressure to a muscle and gauging the response), an unspoken dialogue with the body can be established which can reveal a broad picture of what is happening in a person’s meridian system, and how this may be affecting them on several different levels.
I use kinesiology to find the priority stressors specific to your body and the most appropriate action to take to bring your whole being back in to balance. These “balances” can range from addressing physical concerns, emotional issues, mental beliefs, chemical balances, dietary changes, etc. By approaching health in these integrated, whole-health terms, the toolbox of techniques available during a kinesiology session far exceeds the offering of many other forms of therapy. I find that kinesiology can be especially helpful when seeking to address the root cause of a problem.
Just as each individual is unique, every kinesiology session is also unique. During our initial session we will discuss what brought you here, take a case history, agree a specific goal to work toward and clear any imbalances. This generally lasts somewhere between 1 ½ and 2 hours, and if required, follow up sessions usually last around 1 hour.
