What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a truly holistic practice, using gentle muscle testing to find out where imbalances lie within the body and then treating the client on a chemical, structural, emotional or electrical level. The overlying principle of kinesiology is that everything is connected so where a client might present with a certain condition or pain, a kinesiologist might work on a different aspect of the body. Where it is it isn’t! This can get to the root of many problems.

Kinesiology works on what the body needs addressing the most, the priority first and then through the layers of what is presenting. Therefore each treatment is different for each client, but all equally as effective.

Aspects of Kinesiology


Our chemical health includes the food and water we consume and how our body reacts to these, the vitamins and minerals we need and how they are absorbed or supplemented, our digestive health, our hormonal health and our exposure to toxins and pollutants. Food intolerance testing and identifying certain beneficial supplements is a regular part of a kinesiology session.

Structural / Physical

Physical health can be compromised through injury to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and spinal discs. Compensations can then occur where pain and difficulty is experienced because of another issue. Kinesiology can help to increase blood and lymph circulation to certain areas and release overly tight muscles.

Emotional / Stress

Our emotional health is an important part of our well being and can often manifest in physical problems. Kinesiology can help people with emotional and stress issues. They do not even have to reveal what the actual problem is. Just holding the thought is enough to change a muscle test and from there a number of techniques can be applied.

Electrical / Energetic

We are electrical beings and our energetic health needs to be in balance. Holding certain acupressure points can release blockages and leave a client feeling lighter and more relaxed.
