Kinesiology is a non-invasive, client centred, wholistic and integrative modality which requires utilising the skills of muscle monitoring (as a verification or biofeedback mechanism) for anatomical, physiological and psychological stressors within the person.
The Kinesiologist obtains feedback from the client via muscle monitoring and identifies the non-invasive strategies, applying these as required for the client. This enables the client to reduce their physical, emotional, energetic and mental stressors and to positively affect their health and well-being. Practitioners may be self-employed as independent practitioners or work in a professional centre with other practitioners of different qualifications.
“Kinesiology, literally the study of body movements, encompasses holistic health disciplines which use gentle muscle testing to monitor information about a person’s wellbeing. It originated in the 1960’s combining Western techniques and eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Kinesiology identifies factors, which block the body’s natural healing processes. These dysfunctions are rectified by attention to reflex and acupressure points, the use of specific body movements and nutritional support. Kinesiology can relieve pain, stress, muscular and nervous disorders, detect allergies and nutritional deficiencies, assist with psychological and learning problems, stimulate energy and release untapped potential.”
Excerpt from British Parliament Definition
Definition of Kinesiology by Robert Freeman
My basic description is as follows.
Kinesiology is a complimentary healing system that can deal with most issues a person may face in their life, be it emotional, mental, physical or spiritual. We use the tool of muscle testing to able to access information relating to the imbalance present, and to be able to verify the benefits of a correction. When muscle testing we are not testing the strength of the muscle but rather its integrity and ability to function in isolation.
The body has tangible aspects to it like the muscles and nerves and it has the intangible like the meridian system or charkas, all areas are accessible through muscle monitoring. The body has its own natural system of healing but due to various factors like Trauma, injury, bereavement or even pollution and toxins invading us, the body looses it ability to self regulate. Our job as Kinesiologists is to realign the body’s energy by using a series of non-invasive corrections to re-establish the balance.
The brain is like a computer and uses the nervous system as its wiring circuit in order for the various signals to travel into or out of the brain. Using the bodies muscle system like we would a keyboard on the computer we can establish what and where the problem is. Once the imbalance is established we set up and discover the context and corrections the body chooses to make the change. In the analogy of the computer, what we are doing is reprogramming an error response or failure to be able to compute the outcome. Once the software problem is corrected the hardware can again function as normal.
This natural healing approach can enhance and increase one’s chances of recovery or progress by complementing western healing systems and will not interfere with any benefits derived from prescription medication, operations, counsellors, occupational therapists etc.
There are many people who will frown at the idea of the body being able to do its own healing and disregard natural healing modalities like Kinesiology. One needs to think of some basics here, like for example if we cut ourselves, we will happily watch and know that the body will self heal and the cut will close. Once the cells have reconnected with each other and done the work they had to, the injury is forgotten. If one has a major operation and the surgeon slices away at your internal layers we are led to believe the stiches are what does the trick, in-fact the stitches only hold the flesh together so that we can move about, the bulk of the work and regeneration is done by the body itself. My point is that if we can self heal at this high level and accept it blindly, why then is there such a question mark over the body’s ability to heal other issues relating to the body, mind or soul. Any body therefore in the “ healing profession” is merely a facilitator to help the person’s body onto the right track.
