Kinesiology is muscle testing, allowing the practitioner to access information about the client that neither the client or the practitioner know at a conscious level. It is in a unique position amongst alternative therapies as it can be practiced as a complete discipline in its own or used as an additional tool to other therapies such as aromatherapy, chiropractic, Bowen therapy and homeopathy giving different insights.

Muscles testing is a painless procedure involving the practitioner applying gentle pressure to specific parts of the body (often arms and legs) to test of the response of the underlying muscles. The particular part of the body involved is placed in a specific position, in order, as far as possible, to isolate the muscles that is being tested. The muscle will easily be able to resist the pressure form the practitioner or will give way, as least slightly. Kinesiologist uses this response to access information about what is happening and what is needed. Because of the inter-relationship between muscles, meridians and body systems, this information can apply not only to the muscle being tested but also give the valuable information about other imbalances with the body and the necessary procedures to correct them.

During a typical Kinesiology consultation the practitioner takes a case history and then the client lies on a couch. The practitioner will test one of more muscles using gentle pressure. Depending on the response, the practitioner will then use various acupuncture points to stimulate or sedate the meridians. No needles are involved but the meridians can be re-balanced using various techniques depending on the particular branch of Kinesiology. Advice may also be given on supplements, flower remedies, exercise programs and life-style changed.

Kinesiology works with babies, young children, mentally handicapped, animals, the elderly and the downright sceptics! Sometimes a client will only need a single appointment for their problems, but more generally people need a series of appointments to maintain their health and to prevent additional problems arising in the future.
