What is Kinesiology?

Pronounced Kin-easy-ology, the starting point of this therapy is being able to say it, and as you can see, it’s ‘easier’ than it first looks!

Kinesiology literally means ‘study of movement’. The word comes from the Greek word kinesis, which means motion, and ology, which means the study of. It is believed that, by interpreting the energy flow within key body-systems, we can gain useful information about the body’s physiological and biochemical status.
Kinesiology works on the basis that in order to have total health, we must look at the person as a complete whole. Factors that affect the physical body will not only have an effect on other parts of the body but will have an effect on the mind and emotions too. For example, chronic back pain could lead to a person feeling depressed and by the same token, excessive worry could contribute to the development of a stomach ulcer or digestive problems.
Maggie La Tourelle, a leading Kinesiologist, defines Kinesiology as a system of natural health care, which combines manual muscle testing with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy balancing and other healing modalities.
Kinesiology is one of the only therapies that can be truly called holistic, as it looks at all aspects, be it mental, chemical, physical or energy. I am  able to test and correct which of these aspects is causing an imbalance.
Kinesiology makes use of muscle testing techniques to monitor the flow of energy throughout the body on a very fine level. Through this system I can identify the factors which may be disrupting the natural flow of energy, which are essential to good health, based on the principle that muscles are related to meridian energy lines. Meridians are channels which follow certain life force energy, known as a Chi.
All energy must be flowing correctly around the body for it to be healthy, and severe energy imbalance can cause disease. Corrections are made by gentle massage and touch on reflex and acupuncture points. Kinesiology makes use of specific body movements and may suggest changes in lifestyle or nutrition.
Kinesiologist’s are like “health detectives”. We can uncover the root of your health problems, and when we pinpoint the cause of your problem, we can give your body the tools to heal itself naturally.
As Progressive Kinesiology treats the individual rather than presenting symptom, a wide variety of ailments can be helped. The treatment is suitable for all ages and children are welcome but they will need an accompanying adult if less than 16 years.
