Kinesiology, literally the study of body movement, encompasses holistic health disciplines, which use gentle, manual, muscle monitoring to determine information about a person’s well being.
What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology combines Western techniques with Eastern wisdom, to remove stress being held in a person’s system. Through its dual East-West roots, its foundations extend back thousand of years.
Where did Kinesiology originate from?
Thousands of years ago humans were more in tune with their bodies. They could interpret messages the body was sending and deal with issues immediately. As we’ve moved away from this intuitive way of being, some of us now need help in interpreting what our body is telling us.
Initial research began in the U.S. in the 1930′s and was expanded in the 1960′s by chiropractors embracing techniques derived from Chinese medicine using acupressure and meridian systems to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health.
How does Kinesiology work?
A Kinesiologist’s role is to assist you by clearing stress that continues to be held from long forgotten incidents, from your system. Our bodies never forget these incidents as our survival-oriented structure means we hold all memories, particularly negative experiences, somewhere in our system. Awareness is the first step in being able to shift problems. Once you become aware of what your emotional triggers are, you have the ability to re-evaluate the event and circumstances surrounding it. Using the context of your current life experience, you are now in a position to change your response and choose a new and more life affirming response.
In doing this, we’re able to stop the pattern of recreating the same situation over and over again, thereby being able to move forward in your life.
I like this movie trailer for E-Motion that explains what happens when we hold onto emotions and when we release them.
After comprehensive history taking the practitioner uses muscle monitoring to correct energy imbalances.
An unlocking muscle test indicates a disturbed energy flow – be it structural, chemical, nutritional, mental, emotional or spiritual. This stress may manifest in the person as some form of disease, an accident, poor nutritional or postural habits, an unresolved argument, personal trauma or crisis, even as a misunderstanding with others. Stresses from the past, if not dealt with, can continue to be held in the system, impacting your life today.
What results can I expect from Kinesiology?
Each session is unique because it is determined by what is currently present for you. Kinesiology can relieve pain, stress, anxiety, depression, detect allergies and nutritional deficiencies, rebalance your hormones, assist with psychological and learning problems, stimulate energies and release your untapped potential!
