Kinesiology is based on the principle that muscles, organs and glands are connected by a network of energetic channels that are often referred to as meridians.
Emotional or physical stress can disrupt this natural flow of energy and disease is said to result when these pathways become imbalanced. A wide range of powerful techniques, acupressure massage and nutritional recommendations help guide you back to optimum health.
“But where’s the proof?” I hear you say! A 2005 study revealed the meridian channels when exposed to a particular form of light. A number of other studies since then have explored this new knowledge further – although of course, to the Chinese, this isn’t new knowledge at all as work on the meridians (acupuncture, acupressure or others) has been the main form of healthcare dating back to 221 BC, when there is evidence of sharpened stones being used in the same way as modern acupuncture needles. (I’m glad I wasn’t around then!)
What happens when you visit clinic for a Kinesiology treatment? You may never have experienced Kinesiology and may be curious about the benefits for both mind and body? You will lie, fully clothed, on the couch while I employ a variety of simple and painless muscle tests. These tests are a type of body language that communicates potential problems and solutions to both the client and the practitioner. Once problems are identified, acupressure massage, light touch points and nutritional suggestions will be used to restore balance.
Although I prefer to work with people to prevent problems before they arise, I do also work with people who are experiencing a range of complaints (that sometimes can’t be explained medically.) Kinesiology also helps take the guesswork out of what nutritional supplements may be supportive and can give much needed insights into food intolerances.
Muscle testing is the main tool by which a kinesiologist can access your meridians. Within the chiropractic profession, the ICAK governing body has come up with the following definition of muscle testing:
“Manual muscle tests evaluate the ability of the nervous system to adapt the muscle to meet the changing pressure of the examiner’s test. This requires that the examiner be trained in the anatomy, physiology, and neurology of muscle function. The action of the muscle being tested, as well as the role of synergistic muscles, must be understood. Manual muscle testing is both a science and an art. To achieve accurate results, muscle tests must be performed according to a precise testing protocol.”
Whilst new kinesiology techniques are being discovered regularly, they are only incorporated into the body of kinesiology knowledge with adequate evidence review. Kinesiology studies tend to be perhaps a little smaller than some of the big pharma studies on drugs, but we understand that each person is unique and we can’t just put them into one group or another on the basis of one symptom alone.
Kinesiologists are insured, qualified and abide by a code of conduct laid down by their professional associations. As a part of their accreditation, they have to submit annual hours of continuing professional development each year.
