What is Kinesiology?
On some level, the body has an awareness of what it needs in any given situation to nourish itself to good health.
Kinesiology uses feedback from muscle tests to communicate with this awareness so that the underlying causes of symptoms can be understood and gently released. This release frees up resources in the body which can be redirected to more constructive purposes.
In this way, it is possible to redefine behaviour patterns or responses to situations and align oneself to feel empowered and excited to enjoy life.
How does Kinesiology Work?
Kinesiology is an energy based practise aimed at restoring the flow of a person's energies holistically, to help them achieve their maximum potential. Each session is unique, in response to your body's feedback, but structured towards achieving a specific goal.
When will you notice a change in your symptoms?
Kinesiology is a holistic practice and its success can be best measured by how you feel following a session. Following a balance, it is not unusual for a client to forget that their original issue ever bothered them! Even so, a pre-balance assessment and post-balance assessment are taken so that you can evaluate for yourself if change has occurred.
What happens during a kinesiology balance?
During the first consultation, a brief client history is taken to help streamline the balancing process. Thereafter, a typical session will consist of discussing the issue that you’d like to work on and how it is affecting you, refining a priority goal for the session then the actual balance. This whole process lasts an hour.
For the balance, you are invited to relax on a therapy table fully clothed. Your current muscle integrity is assessed in relation to the chosen goal then further feedback from the muscles is used to deconstruct the blockages preventing you from achieving that goal. Some typical balancing techniques involve massaging different areas, holding acupressure points and discussing emotional connections.
A balance culminates in reassessing muscle integrity in response to the original goal to confirm that the goal is no longer stressful.
You will often also have home reinforcement activities to complete in order to reinforce the work done during a session. This simple ‘homework’ is determined by what came up during the balance.
How many sessions will I need?
This can depend on the significance of the issue being worked on (e.g. how strongly it impacts on your day to day life) and also how long you have held the issue.
Large goals can be broken into smaller, more achievable goals - so as not to be overwhelming to work on - and may take a number of sessions. Ultimately, your body has an awareness of how much work you can comfortably achieve each session and will indicate if further balances would be useful.
