Kinesiology is a holistic therapy which uses muscle response testing as a way to measure the reaction of the central nervous system to a sensory challenge. It is a non-invasive, drug-free and empowering method. Kinesiologists look for changes in muscle response that are triggered when a relevant factor is introduced such as an emotional stress or a food that one is sensitive to. By doing this, imbalances can be determined and methods to rebalance the body can be identified.
Each muscle is related to an energy pathway called a meridian, each of which is associated with an organ. If there is a stress that affects this energy pathway, the muscle affected will test weak. It can also be seen as a way of measuring the flow of energy through the body.
Muscle testing therefore gathers information and corrects imbalances. Some suggested remedies include lifestyle alterations, supplements, dietary changes, emotional stress management techniques or non-manipulative structural adjustments. The client and the Kinesiologist can identify an exact cause and devise a personal plan of action together; it takes the guess work out of health.
Kinesiologists treat people as a whole, looking beyond the symptoms to find the root cause. When fully addressed the imbalance clears, which should prevent the problem from returning.
