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.
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 response testing and energy balancing to their practice.

WHAT IS MUSCLE RESPONSE TESTING?
The principal tool of kinesiology is muscle response testing.
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.
