What is Kinesiology?
A System of Natural Healthcare
So what is Kinesiology anyway?
Basically we are a big ball of energy. All signals that we receive in any form throughout our body, come from the brain. Just think about on a winter’s day and you pull off your jumper and you get zapped – energy!
In our body, due to environmental, emotional, and food influences just to name a few, the energy pathways – messages from the brain – can get disrupted.
Kinesiology in simple terms uses a biofeedback technique called muscle testing to ‘ask’ the body what and where those disruptions are coming from and then through acupressure and other modalities re-aligns the energy pathways to bring the body back into a state of homeostasis.
The brain only really cares about itself, and it will take the quickest path from point A to point B to get the job done. When these are disrupted, the brain needs to find alternative pathways to achieve the end result. The longer the new pathway, the more likely the signal is going to be disrupted or not even make it to the destination. Kinesiology uses techniques to clear the blocked or re-routed energy back to the correct pathways – thus helping to keep the body in balance.
These stresses may present themselves in many forms including:
- Learning difficulties
- Digestive problems
- Skin complaints
- Hormonal issues
- Emotional trauma & stress
- Physical pain
- Behavioural issues
- Low energy levels
- Food intolerances
- Fears and phobias
- And the list goes on…
The medical dictionary definition, as stated by The American Heritage Stedman’s Medical Dictionary, classifies Kinesiology as:
The study of muscular movement, especially the mechanics of human motion
In simple language,
As a Kinesiologist, I ‘ask’ the body what is happening regarding an issue by applying a gentle pressure on a selection of muscles.
To achieve this, our Kinesiologist will prepare your body to ‘answer’ them by a series of simple pre-tests. These pre-tests are similar to an artist preparing a canvas to paint. When the body is ready to ‘answer’, our Kinesiologist will simply look for a change in the muscle tension – this change indicates there is a stress.
Once a stress has been identified, a series of techniques, based on traditional Eastern medicine are used to bring the body back into balance.
Think of your body as a big battery.
A battery needs a few things to perform to its optimum level:
- Salts (acids)
- A clear circuit
Your body uses all of these.
So let’s go back to our body being like a battery now. As you would be aware if a battery is not connected at one end it will not work (that is, the circuit has been broken). If our body is not in balance, it does not work to its full potential. Kinesiology works on the principle of ‘re-connecting’ the battery (your body) and ensuring the continual flow of energy – thus maintaining a full circuit for the energy to flow.
While it encompasses many techniques, the main point of Kinesiology is that it uses the body’s innate desire to be in balance. We have come to believe that when there is something wrong in our body that the symptoms that appear are actually what is wrong with us.
Common examples include:
- ‘We start sneezing and coughing, therefore we must have a cold’
- ‘We have a fever and aches therefore we must have a flu’
- ‘We have trouble going to the toilet, or we have bloating, constipation etc., so it must be Irritable Bowel Syndrome, right?’
- ‘We have back pain, so we must have an injury’
- And on it goes…..
However, in many, many cases these symptoms are related to something deeper.
- Did you know that pain in your back can be caused by digestive issues?
- Did you know that knee pain and tennis elbow can be caused by too much sugar?
- Your digestive issues may be caused by stress and anxiety!
Even learning difficulties can often be helped by kinesiology – in some cases, it is as simple as helping the body identify what foods it can and can’t tolerate (the body’s reaction to foods it can’t break-down can involve everything from a simple upset tummy, to mood swings/temper tantrums, and even reduced cognitive and learning abilities). Additionally, headaches can often be helped by a few non-intrusive techniques that re-align the body’s energy system to create a clear path back to the brain.
So when you are feeling unwell, consider kinesiology for a non-invasive and chemical free alternative to unearthing what is really going on in your body.
