What is Holistic Kinesiology?

Kinesiologists work on improving health and wellbeing by stimulating the client’s own healing potential. As Kinesiologists, we do not diagnose illness. We work with stress patterns, signs and symptoms. We are often interested in what diagnosis has been given to a client, but we do not treat two clients with the same diagnosis in exactly the same way.

The following definition of Kinesiology was approved by the Australian Kinesiology Association in 1999:

Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s well-being. Originating in the 1970′s, it combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies the elements which inhibit the body’s natural internal energies and accessing the life enhancing potential within the individual.”

As Holistic Kinesiologists, we use muscle monitoring in clinic as one of the main assessment tools, finding areas to explore and where to correct. It is an extremely useful tool when used appropriately and in conjunction with other assessment tools such as orthopaedic and neurological assessment, homeopathic constitutions, Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis and constitutions, pathophysiology, counselling, and client feedback.

Muscle monitoring is very good at assessing what is relevant for a stress that is current now. For example, checking what emotion underlies a particular ache or pain. We can use kinesiology to help people connect with their core and find their truth. Ultimately, it is the client that connects to the truth and by connecting understands themselves and the world better.

How Kinesiology can help you

The primary purpose of a kinesiology session is to identify stress and the underlying patterns and to re-balance the body, mind and spirit. Kinesiology can help all areas of health and wellbeing. Kinesiology can relieve pain, stress, muscular and nervous disorders, detect allergies and nutritional deficiencies, assist with psychological and learning problems, stimulate energies and release untapped potential. It can assist with determining blocks in your life that may be preventing you from moving forward, it can bring awareness to the beliefs you have that are not beneficial to you and assist you in changing your perspective.
Anyone can benefit from a kinesiology balance. You do not need to have a specific illness or issue. The body can always benefit from some general maintenance.
