Kinesiology Awareness Week 12th-18th March 2018
What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a complementary therapy which combines muscle testing with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It aims to restore a state of balance and supports the natural self-healing ability of the body.
Not as widely known about as other forms of complementary therapy such as acupuncture or reflexology, the annual Kinesiology Awareness Week aims to bring Kinesiology to a wider audience.
10 things you didn’t know about Kinesiology:
- Created by a chiropractor who made the correlation between the energy channels in the body (from Traditional Chinese Medicine) and the muscles of the body.
- Most widely known for food sensitivity testing Kinesiology can actually be used to support any aspect of your health and wellbeing or overall performance.
- Kinesiology looks to identify and address the underlying root cause of a symptom/issue rather than simply ‘masking’ the symptom/issue. This makes it a good alternative when a conventional approach has failed to help or for those who prefer a more natural and holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
- Kinesiologists use muscle testing to identify what is happening with the flow of energy in the body.
- Each session is unique as it is based on the feedback from that client’s body at that time.
- A Kinesiology session is called a ‘Balance’ because it aims to balance the flow of energy within the body and bring the client back into a state of balance.
- Clients often feel a difference after only one session although sometimes a series of sessions are required.
- Kinesiology has many benefits both preventative as well as being able to address existing issues.
- Kinesiology is highly effective at treating stress and stress related issues/symptoms.
- ‘Weird’ is one of the most common words used to describe people’s first experience of Kinesiology and muscle testing.
I couldn’t just leave it at 10 things…
- As a complementary therapy it is very gentle and can be used alongside conventional medicine.
- It supports the body, mind and spirit as it is holistic in its approach.
- There are hundreds of techniques and supports available to you within a Kinesiology treatment. Examples include rubbing or holding reflex and acupressure points, flower essences, use of colour, sound, nutrition or talking to name a few.
- There are many different schools of Kinesiology so you’ll often find that different Kinesiologists have different ways of working.
- Within the UK Kinesiology is regulated by the Kinesiology Federation.
What can Kinesiology help with? It can for example:
- Increase energy and vitality
