What Is Kinesiology?

How Does It Work?

kinesiology casurinaA fundamental premise of Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing its best to care for itself, but that sometimes it needs to be helped into better balance to achieve this care. Kinesiology also recognizes that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ. These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body's overall state of structural, chemical, or emotional balance.

In this way, Kinesiology taps into energies that other modalities do not assess and uses the wisdom of the individual body in each session.  Kinesiology looks beyond the symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with imbalances in the body's energy. In this respect, Kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow. Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice ~ in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life in general.

Kinesiology Put Simply:

Kinesiology is a non-invasive method, using precision muscle feedback and body awareness that can help you to reduce stress and pain, improve performance at school, work and home, in sports, in relationships, and promotes health and wellbeing. Kinesiology helps a person access the inner knowing and find again the power of choice in one's life. Kinesiology allows you to take charge of the way you relate to the past, your present circumstances and the future.
