A few years ago, I was “kicked” out of the corporate world, my time was up! I had a strong urge to study and I had no idea what I was going to study, all I knew was it was my year for it. One day a client said to me “I noticed you do Kinesiology”, I said “No I don’t right now, however I am going to!” and that is how Kinesiology found me.
Whilst I had heard of it, I signed up for the course and on day one I sat there with no idea of what was involved and/or how it could help people.
Kinesiology is a healing modality which is becoming more popular and known. It is considered to be one of the truly holistic modalities because it works on all aspects of a person and thus it is a three dimensional modality. Whereas most modalities are only one dimensional or at best two (i.e. usually just the mind).
It is an energy based healing modality with strong roots in both Eastern philosophies, such as Chinese meridian system, acupressure points, chakras as well as the Western principles of coaching and the study of Anatomy and Physiology .
In the early 1970’s John Thie D.C. evolved the teachings of Applied Kinesiology for the lay person to create his method of kinesiology, called Touch for Health. Previously it was a system made available to Chiropractors and those of the medical fraternity.
The word Kinesiology derives from the Greek word “kinesis” meaning movement and “kinein” meaning to move. Therefore kinesiology could be seen as the science or branch of knowledge related to movement.
Energy kinesiology is the movement of energy through the meridian system, chakras and auric bodies. Which is thought to also benefit movement through the physical and mental bodies. In Eastern medicine there is a philosophy: Bu tong ze tong, Tong ze bu tong, which translates: If there is no free flow, there is pain; if there is free flow, there is no pain.
Commonly Kinesiology is known for its use of muscle testing, which is the main tool a kinesiologist uses in order to obtain information from the body. Also a versatile tool which identifies imbalances and resonating correction techniques.
Muscles are able to move due to working with various other body systems, notable the nervous system. Our conscious mind transmits a command to our central nervous system which converts it into electrical impulses. The electrical impulses are then transported through the somatic part of our peripheral nervous system to the nerves responsible for controlling the necessary muscles.
When a client processes information which is beneficial for them, the muscle remains strong. However where the information causes a stress the muscle goes weak, it identifies information that is or could create energy blockages.
However Kinesiology is much more than muscle testing. Together with the client a goal is set for the session. Via muscle testing the kinesiologist will seek information that is creating energy blockages or sabotages which are impeding the client from achieving this goal.
The muscles have been shown to reflect tension, especially when stress hasn’t been processed properly. Which means they can hold memory of experiences which can be held onto for many years. Such stress which can manifest as dis-ease, aches and pains, sabotaging behaviour and/or crisis. Alternatively this stress can be triggered by events which bring it to the surface.
Muscles can be likened to filing cabinets for the subconscious mind. By using the muscles we can bring information to consciousness to be addressed and released. Which helps bring the body back into balance and thus such symptoms and behaviours release.
The kinesiologist has a tool bag of varying techniques, referred to as corrections, to address such blocks and thus bring the body, mind and spirit into alignment and balance. Such corrections are a mix of tried and proven energy based techniques.
A Kinesiologist will not diagnose, treat or prescribe however what they do is work with the client to achieve a goal set for the session. With the aim to balance clients in terms of the triad of health, which is chemically /nutritionally, mentally/emotionally as well as physically/structurally.
A balance is an individual experience as each session is tailored for what that individual needs (which can vary from each session). Kinesiology has been known to improve emotional and physical well-being, bringing a calmer and relaxed state of being, reducing pain, as well as improving self-esteem and confidence.
