WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY?
Kinesiology is a holistic system of natural health care which uses muscle monitoring to communicate directly with the body.
Since its inception in the 1960's, Kinesiology continues to evolve as new techniques are developed. There are now many different branches of kinesiology, each with its own approach to healing. So, each practitioner will develop their own, often unique, style of working.
There are several key principals that are consistent between practitioners however, irrespective of their modality.
Kinesiology applies a wide range of gentle yet powerful techniques. These restore balance and create and sustain health, well-being and more effective functioning. Kinesiology also draws on and integrates other therapies and healing modalities and can be used as an adjunct to any therapy.
Kinesiology is renowned for being able to uncover and help the underlying causes of health problems that are difficult to find by any other means.
Touch for Health is the most widely recognised kinesiology in the world, being taught in over 30 countries worldwide and accredited by the International Kinesiology College. Touch for Health workshops are open to anyone, irrespective of prior knowledge. Classes are often a mix of people interested in learning how to improve the health of themselves and their family, and healthcare practitioners looking to add muscle monitoring and energy balancing to their practice.

WHAT IS MUSCLE MONITORING?
The principal tool of kinesiology is muscle monitoring.
The Kinesiologist applies pressure to a contracted muscle and the client is asked to match or resist that pressure. The Kinesiologist evaluates the functioning of the muscle in response to a specific stimulus. The response of the muscle, whether it is able to remain in contraction or unlocks, gives the Kinesiologist feedback.
This feedback is used to determine what the priority stresses are and the best way to address them.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM KINESIOLOGY?
People of all ages - whatever their level of fitness or health - can benefit, including:
Even healthy people will benefit from regular kinesiology treatments. Babies and people who cannot be muscle tested directly can be tested through a surrogate.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF KINESIOLOGY?
Kinesiology restores the whole system to balance, facilitating the self-healing process.
It can, for example:
TREATING THE CAUSE, NOT JUST THE SYMPTOMS
Muscle monitoring, done by a fully trained kinesiologist, can access information regarding the underlying causes of a person's health problems and identify the most appropriate treatment.
For example, two people with similar health complaints may receive quite different advice. Let's imagine two people go to see a kinesiologist, both experiencing headaches, and see how a kinesiology session may work out a unique treatment for each person.
Person 1: The kinesiologist uses muscle monitoring to read the body's energetic imbalances and the priorities show up to be a chemical imbalance involving impaired digestive function and hormone imbalance. Muscle monitoring is further used to establish what course of action would bring the body's energies back into balance and support innate healing. Muscle monitoring identifies some foods may be too challenging for the person at the moment, and some dietary supplements that may be helpful in supporting digestive health and hormone balance.
Person 2: The kinesiologist uses muscle monitoring to read the body's energetic imbalances and the priorities show up to be a structural imbalance in the neck and hip area, which in turn relates to an unresolved emotional issue. Muscle monitoring is further used to establish what course of action would bring the body's energies back into balance and support innate healing. This time the treatment might involve gentle massage of reflex points to release muscle tension and balance the physical body, together with a gentle technique to diffuse emotional stress and a personalized prescription of flower essences (chosen by the person's body through muscle monitoring).
