Frequently Asked Questions



What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a holistic approach to long-lasting health and vitality, with results that can be felt immediately.

It melds ancient eastern energetic healing arts with western physiological healing sciences to address a wide-range of physical, emotional, mental, nutritional and spiritual issues.

What makes kinesiology unique is that the Kinesiologist is not the dispenser of healing knowledge to the client but rather the facilitator of the body’s own intelligence to be healed and whole. The major tool used in kinesiology is gentle muscle monitoring, a form of direct communication with the physical, emotional, mental and cellular systems of the body.

The client’s muscle response not only directs the Kinesiologist to the cause of their problems but also directs them to the correction needed to resolve these problems. Everyone can benefit from kinesiology, from the unwell to the very fit. Adults, children, men and women use it to improve performance in many areas of their life such as education, sports, business, finance and relationships.

While Kinesiology helps a wide range of health issues you don’t need to be sick to a see a kinesiologist. It can help you make positive changes and improve your overall health and wellbeing.



Why do Accredited Kinesiology Training?

As a student looking for a career in Natural Therapies, Government Accreditation is extremely important, and there are a number of reasons why:

Nationally Recognised Training provides a standard against which courses and colleges can be assessed.
    It assures the student that the course is of an appropriate standard.
    It assures the student that the educational techniques and principles of the college are sound.
    It promotes recognition of courses between training organisations and ensures that they meet government guidelines for courses.
It ensures students are studying a course that is recognised and carries credibility with both government and professional bodies that register and regulate practitioners.

As a Registered Training Organisation Nicolie O’Neill Kinesiology is making a commitment to the future of Kinesiology and its practitioners. It offers accredited training with qualifications that are recognised nationally to ensure all practitioners graduating from the program maintain high standards of Kinesiology practice.

With some 20 modalities of Kinesiology being taught throughout Australia, the need was seen for an integrated and professional training course that would enable practitioners to combine the different Kinesiology approaches in a competent manner.

The fragmented approach of offering different modality workshops has meant that practitioners learn a limited range of Kinesiology techniques. In fact, students have been discouraged from extending their knowledge, as many modalities teach the same skills without recognition of prior learning.

The Nicolie O’Neill Kinesiology training program has been created to provide professional training that will lift the standard of Kinesiologists and improve their ability to offer clients the best possible results. The goal of the program is to enhance Kinesiology’s reputation as a worthwhile and beneficial complementary therapy.



What's involved in a kinesiology session?

A Kinesiology session is non-invasive. The practitioner will use an arm muscle as their muscle monitoring tool.

By applying gentle pressure the Kinesiologist is able to identify physical, emotional, mental and nutritional imbalances or blockages.

Using muscle monitoring the Kinesiologist will identify all the imbalances involved in the issue and then what techniques to apply to restore the client’s Body-Mind to balance. These techniques may include:
    Meridians and acupoint stimulation (needle-less)
    Muscle stimulation
    Sound therapy
    Emotional stress release
    Specific exercises
    Flower essences & vibrational remedies



How can Kinesiology help physical pain issues?

How can Kinesiology help alleviate pain and physical/structural issues?
  • Do you have a physical pain or muscle tightness?

  • Do you have an injury? Or an old injury that has never been fully resolved?

  • Do you have a sore back every day and have tried everything to relieve it but nothing has worked?

  • Do you have an ongoing structural complaint such as carpal tunnel, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, whiplash etc?
In 6 Kinesiology sessions we can improve your posture, relieve pain and release tension by accessing and correcting imbalances using gentle muscle monitoring and non-invasive Kinesiology techniques. The focus of these balances is the musculoskeletal structures of the physical body.

What makes Kinesiology unique for addressing physical pain and structural problems is that it can access and resolve all the physical, emotional, mental and physiological stresses involved in your issue. If you commit to the required treatment schedule, then we can address all the areas that are contributing to your physical complaint/s and you could find yourself free from pain and physical discomfort permanently!

Being “out of balance” in life will reflect in stress holding patterns held in the muscles, this results in muscle groups not working effectively together and compromising body posture and function. This is often reflected in generalised aches and pains in the body, including shoulder aches and lower back pain.

The cranium, jaw, spine and pelvis are all structurally connected. Balancing one part of the system may leave the corrections vulnerable to being compromised later by the other areas that are still holding stress patterns. Kinesiology balances work with these structural interconnections on a deeper level. Kinesiology is a top-to-toes solution for your physical body to help you live a pain-free life!
Treatment plan for physical/structural issues:6 Kinesiology sessions each 2 weeks apart. Follow-up 4 weeks after last session to confirm resolution of issue/s



How can Kinesiology help improve fatigue?

How can Kinesiology help improve adrenal fatigue?

Do you:
    Feel tired for no reason?
    Have trouble getting up in the morning?
    Feel run down and stressed?
    Experience food cravings?
    Feel grumpy & irritable?
    Have regular feelings of weakness?
    Feel depressed? Experience mood swings?
    Experience restlessness? Apathy?
    Have headaches? Muscle and joint aches?
If you answered YES to 2 or 3 of these, you could be suffering from adrenal fatigue.

The term ‘adrenal fatigue’ was coined in the late 1990s to identify a specific kind of chronic tiredness that many people experience. It can affect anyone who undergoes frequent, persistent or severe mental, emotional or physical stress. It is a modern condition that has become more common due to the high levels of prolonged stress many people endure in our increasingly busy world.

The most important hormone to help the body deal with stress is cortisol, which the adrenals release in high levels during stressful periods. During prolonged periods of stress the glands become overworked and are unable to keep up with demand. As a result cortisol levels drop and the body cannot respond effectively to pressured situations. Kinesiology sessions can restore optimum adrenal gland function by accessing and correcting imbalances using gentle muscle monitoring and non-invasive Kinesiology techniques.

What makes Kinesiology unique is that it can find and resolve all the factors contributing to adrenal fatigue: physiological, emotional and mental. By restoring the adrenals’ ability to respond effectively to stress, the body’s overall hormone levels will become more stable, restoring balance and optimum health.

Kinesiology is a holistic solution for resolving adrenal stress to help you live a vibrant and healthy life!

Treatment plan for adrenal fatigue: 3-5 Kinesiology sessions each 3 weeks apart. Follow-up 6 weeks after last session to confirm resolution of issue.



How can Kinesiology improve learning & brain integration?

How can Kinesiology improve brain integration and resolve issues, including learning?

Would you like to enhance yours or your child’s:
    ability to learn or memory?
    ability to achieve set goals and reach your highest potential?
    enjoyment of school, sport, work and all areas of life?
    ability to think clearly even in stressful situations?
Kinesiology balances can help with learning difficulties, brain integration and performance enhancement. Brain integration can come and go depending on two factors: the stress in your life at that time and the stress associated with the task you are performing both at present and in your past. For some it may only be a momentary loss of integration (ability to think clearly) when performing a specific task, while for others it may be an ongoing loss of integration in whole areas of function.

Dr Charles Krebs, world renowned brain specialist and Kinesiologist says there is no other treatment modality besides kinesiology that can so dynamically interact with the on-line brain processing or that allows the integrity of the brain functions to be so directly assessed. Both minor and complex brain processing issues can be resolved gently and effectively with kinesiology balancing.

Through kinesiology brain integration treatment the stresses causing loss of brain integration can be defused and brain synchronicity restored allowing children and adults to achieve to the best of their ability. This specialised kinesiology treatment also involves a step-by-step approach to resolving specific learning difficulties such as ADD and dyslexia. If you want to help your children or yourself achieve full potential in ALL areas of life then call us today!

Treatment plan for brain integration / learning issues:
5–10 Kinesiology sessions each 2 or 3 weeks apart. 5 Kinesiology sessions recommended for general loss of brain integration issues. 10–15 Kinesiology sessions are recommended for specific learning difficulties such as ADD, dyslexia. Follow-up 4 weeks after last session to confirm resolution of issues.

How can Kinesiology help alleviate hormonal imbalances?

  • Do you have difficulty sleeping? Or wake-up feeling like you’ve hardly slept?

  • Are you suffering from low-energy? Feel tired most of the time?

  • Do you have a thyroid problem, adrenal fatigue or another endocrine dysfunction?

  • Do you have a reproductive issue such as PMS, irregular periods, infertility, low testosterone, menopause symptoms etc?
Kinesiology sessions can improve your overall hormonal balance by accessing and correcting imbalances using gentle muscle monitoring and non-invasive Kinesiology techniques. The focus of these balances is the endocrine glands which are all intimately connected to each other. Rather than addressing only the gland/s directly involved in your issue, Kinesiology aims to find and resolve all hormonal pathways contributing to your problems.

Under stress your endocrine system functions inefficiently and glands such as the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, adrenals and pancreas are affected. These changes can impact on your growth, metabolism and reproductive systems. Kinesiology can balance the endocrine system and help keep your hormone levels stable, restoring balance and optimum health.

What makes Kinesiology unique for addressing hormonal problems is that it can access and resolve all the emotional, mental and physiological stresses involved in your issue. If you commit to the required treatment schedule, then we can address all the areas that are contributing to your physical symptoms and you could find yourself sleeping peacefully every night, feeling healthy and vital every day, and experiencing healthy reproductive cycles. Kinesiology is a holistic solution for balancing hormonal issues to help you live a vibrant and healthy life!



How can Kinesiology help alleviate allergies or asthma?

Is your immune system weakened due to stress or ill-health?
Do you suffer from hayfever or another allergy?
Do you suffer from asthma?


Would you like to ensure you have a strong immune system to avoid colds and flus?
What makes Kinesiology unique for addressing allergies, asthma and impaired immunity is that it can access and resolve all the emotional, mental and physiological stresses involved in your compromised immune function. When you are stressed your body goes into fight/flight mode and this slows down your immune function. Kinesiology can address all the areas that are contributing to your physical symptoms and you could find your health improved and reactions significantly decreased.

When your immune system is functioning at its optimum level you will have the appropriate defences to fight off colds, flus and other pathogens you may come into contact with. The common cold is a viral infection and as such is easily spread from person to person within our community. Building and maintaining your immune system improves your chances of keeping winter colds and flus at bay.

Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to substances that in most individuals cause no reaction. These substances can trigger sneezing, wheezing, coughing and itching. Many of our clients have found Kinesiology treatment helpful in re-setting their immune system so that it no longer reacts to these harmless substances. Kinesiology can also improve impaired respiratory function associated with asthma.

Kinesiology sessions can strengthen the immune system so that it can defend the body effectively and in a healthy way. Physical, emotional and mental stress all affect the immune system and impair its function. Using gentle muscle monitoring and non-invasive Kinesiology techniques we can release these stressors and return the immune system to its optimum level of functioning.



How can Kinesiology help alleviate nutritional imbalances?

  • Do you suffer from poor digestion? Experience bloating or pain during digestion?

  • Is your body deficient in important nutrients, despite taking supplements?

  • Do you want to eliminate toxins from your body?

  • Do you have a nutritional issue such as Candida, blood glucose imbalance, hiatus hernia, herpes etc?
Kinesiology sessions can improve your body’s ability to digest food, absorb essential nutrients and eliminate toxins by accessing and correcting imbalances using gentle muscle monitoring and non-invasive Kinesiology techniques. Rather than addressing only the organs directly involved in your issue, Kinesiology aims to find and resolve all physiological pathways that may be contributing to your problems, from the systemic level down to the cellular level.

Under stress your digestive system functions inefficiently and organs such as the stomach, pancreas, small intestine and large intestine are affected. These changes can impact on your nutrient absorption, metabolism and elimination processes which in turn affects your energy levels and all the other systems of the body as they rely on appropriate nutrition to function effectively. Kinesiology can balance the digestive system and metabolic pathways restoring balance and optimum health.

What makes Kinesiology unique for addressing nutritional problems is that it can access and resolve all the emotional, mental and physiological stresses involved in your issue. If you commit to the required treatment schedule, then we can address all the areas that are contributing to your physical symptoms and you could find yourself experiencing new, higher levels of health and vitality. Kinesiology is a holistic solution for balancing nutritional issues to help you live a vibrant and healthy life!

Treatment plan for immune issues:

4–5 Kinesiology sessions each, 3 weeks apart. 5–10 sessions are recommended for severe nutritional imbalances like Candida. Follow-up 6 weeks after last session to confirm resolution of issue/s.
