Kinesiology for Stress

Kinesiology for Stress
Reducing stress in our lives is one of the basic components of good health. Stress is ever-present, and eliminating it is impossible. Besides, sometimes we need stress to propel us to complete tasks, make changes in our lives, or run from a hungry lion (or out of control car, depending on where you live!). It’s the way we deal with stress that usually needs work.

Kinesiology works with the technique of muscle testing which provides biofeedback, and pressure point techniques which are based on the Chinese meridians to assess where energy might be stagnating in the body, causing imbalances. Our physical, emotional and mental problems, such as how we deal with stress, affect the sense of balance in our bodies.

How Does Stress Work?

Stress is a normal physical response to either internal or external stimuli that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. It could be your relationship, work , the traffic, or a real physical danger (that hungry lion). When you sense danger the body's natural set of defenses, called the “fight-or-flight” response, kick in. Hormones surge through the body in an automatic process and can get us out of sticky situations.

This flight or flight response is your body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, alert and energetic, so that you can meet deadlines or perform in an exam. In emergency situations, stress can save your life – giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to hit the brakes to avoid an accident – or running from the lion.
The problem is though that we rarely come face to face with a lion. The stresses we deal with day to day are the ones that start to undermine our balance.

How Can Kinesiology Help?

Kinesiology offers a method of accessing information in the subconscious and releasing it through the muscle testing technique. Kinesiology aims to create a state of balance that will lead to optimal health.

One simple kinesiology technique that you can do for yourself or others is the emotional stress release technique. It is said that when we are stressed, blood flows to the back of the brain, where past memories are stored. When we are stressed we fall back on old patterns – things that may have worked once in a certain situation, but aren’t appropriate to the current situation. If you are feeling intensely emotional, place your hands on your forehead, just above the temples. Focus on the emotions you are experiencing to a specific incident. By placing the hands on the forehead, you are stimulating blood to flow to the front of the brain, where it is thought that new choice is formed.  The theory is that you will be able to approach the situation in a different way and let the stress surrounding it go.

Try this technique next time you are feeling tense, stressed or blocked about some issue.
