What is kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a system of natural health care that combines muscle testing and monitoring, together with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to assess energy and body function, applying a range of healing techniques to improve health, general wellbeing ,and increase vitality.
How does kinesiology work?
Kinesiology has a fundamental premise that the human body has an innate healing energy and is doing its best to care for itself at all times, but it needs to be helped sometimes into a into a better position to achieve this care.
Also, Kinesiology recognises that there are energy flows within the body that relate to every organ and tissue that go to make the body a living, feeling being. These energy flows can be evaluated through muscle testing, which in turn reflect the overall state of structural, chemical or emotional balance of the body.
Kinesiology, in this way, taps into the energies that other modalities do not necessarily assess. Kinesiology looks at what is beyond the symptoms. Kinesiology does not diagnose or treat diseases. It is only concerned with the imbalances of the energy. Energy balancing helps the person become closer to achieving his or her goals.
