What is Kinesiology?

What is Systematic Kinesiology?
Systematic Kinesiology is a natural healthcare system which uses manual muscle response testing to evaluate many functions within the body.
Kinesiology was developed by Dr. George Goodheart, a US Chiropractor, in 1964.

What is muscle testing?
Muscle testing is the ability to hold the muscle against light pressure. This process enable analysis of minor functional imbalances, which when not corrected can cause compensations and more serious health issues.

Each muscle is related to an organ or gland, and also to an energy pathway called a meridian.

Kinesiology was introduced into the UK in 1984 and we use the terminology Systematic Kinesiology

Finding imbalances
Together the muscle, organ /gland and meridian form a "circuit". Any bio-chemical, emotional, structural or electro-magnetic stressors affecting the circuit can be identified when a muscle tests weak or "spongy".

Once an imbalance has been found, the kinesiologist uses further muscle tests to see what factors are aggravating the imbalance, and what will help to rebalance it.

Discovering what's involved and what will help
Each time a relevant factor is introduced, the muscle response will change, a bit like a switch.
For example, if a muscle is spongy (or "switched off"), and then the person suddenly thinks of a specific emotional stress and the muscle then tests strong again, (i.e. "switches on"), this indicates that this specific emotion is linked to the imbalance. The same method is applied for bio-chemical, structural and electro-magnetic problems.

There is no guess work with Systematic Kinesiology.
Based on this feedback, the kinesiologist and the client can investigate together which factors are relevant to the imbalance, and a bespoke treatment package is created. This may include nutritional supplements, techniques for emotional stress release, Bach flower remedies, acupressure, gentle structural realignment, chakra balancing, massage of reflex points, as well as lifestyle changes. The treatment you receive depends on the feedback your body gives through the muscle test and about what it needs to return to health.

Enjoy improved health
Systematic Kinesiology practitioners are dedicated to prevention as well as to relieving the condition. They are able to help clients more effectively if the person is committed to improving their health through self-help and changes to their health regime. Taking control of your life and enjoying improved health and well-being is something that we can all do.

How many sessions do I need?
This usually depends on your complaint and how fully you participate in your own treatment including making the suggested lifestyle and dietary changes that often form part of your "homework". Usually, however, most people feel an improvement in 2 to 4 visits. It is then recommended that you have routine balances 2 or 3 times per year for maintenance.

For children under 5 and for those with limited mobility we normally use a surrogate. This may be a family member or friend, and the surrogate may need to be balanced first.
