Kinesiology (kin-easy-ology) is a tool which enables us to gain better health and well-being; it involves gently testing the client's muscles and interpreting the body's response. It is totally non-invasive and the client remains fully clothed at all times.
Each muscle is linked to a particular organ or body system by energy channels, known as meridians. (It is this same concept that forms the foundations of accupuncture and reflexology). Therefore, when a muscle is spongy or weak and cannot resist the gently applied pressure, we begin to explore why this might be. It can be a purely muscular issue as a result of overstrain or weakness, or it may be linked to the corresponding organ or system, which could benefit from support.
This support can be structural, nutritional, emotional or energetic.
Treatment involves a variety of aspects to strengthen the muscle and corresponding organ or body system which can include: deep lymphatic massage, stimulation of the neuro-vascular points, balancing of the body's energies, emotional support, identification of supporting nutrition.
Kinesiology is a wonderfully holistic tool which addresses the client's issues from a variety of angles. Unlike modern-day medicine which can so often simply mask the symptoms, kinesiology gets to their cause.

Perhaps you are a lucky individual who feels that they are in tip-top health and full of energy. If this is the case, then you might still like to consider an 'MOT' every once in a while. We do it for our cars, why not do it for our most prized possession: our health?
When our body feels pain or discomfort, this is actually quite some way down the line to ill health. Ill health starts as imbalances; these then force our body systems to compensate, which often leads to a negative change in function. It is only then that we actually 'feel' them and want to do something about them.
Kinesiology is able to pick up where there are weaknesses or imbalances within the system and address these issues before they develop into something more serious; after all, prevention is always better than cure!
