Specialised Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about the person’s well-being. Originating in the 1970s it combines western techniques and eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
A fundamental premise of Specialised Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing it’s best to care for itself, but that sometimes it needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this care.
Kinesiology also recognises that there are flows of energy within the body that release not only to the muscles but to the every tissue and organ that go to make the body a living and feeling being.
These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of structural, chemical, or emotional balance. In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases. Nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with imbalances in the body’s energy.
Where, as the result of injury, emotional trauma, nutritional or other unresolved stress, the energy flow is interrupted, the whole body is affected. The exact nature of blockage in the energy flow can be more closely identified by “muscle testing.” Acupressure massage, light touch and other simple correction skills are used to restore muscle “balance,” which has a flow-on effect into total body energy.
Kinesiology is often called “muscle balancing” or “energy balancing” — helping the body into a better position to heal itself of reach a specified goal by “balancing” its energies.
Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice — in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life generally.
This energy balancing that is at the heart of Kinesiology may involve dealing with one or more of the stress factors already mentioned: identifying a nutritional lack or excess, clearing a negative emotional component, relieving pain, stimulating the integration of muscle groups, or improving mental and physical coordination.
