What is Kinesiology therapy?

Kinesiology

Kinesiology comes from the Greek words for the study of movement. This branch of study was started by Dr. George Goodheart, who was a chiropractor, but later he discovered the relationship between Chinese meridians (used by practitioners of Chinese medicine including acupuncturists), muscle groups, organs, and glands in the body.

Kinesiology testing does not diagnose disease. Muscle testing enables analysis which detects functional imbalances. Minor imbalances when not corrected, accumulate and cause compensations. Compensations compound each other, lead to functional changes, and give rise to symptoms of discomfort, pain or maybe allergic reactions. If these warnings are ignored, disease can follow. Health wards off disease!

Kinesiology uses simple, safe, precise muscle testing procedures to find problem areas helping to get to the root causes and does not just dealing with the symptoms of a problem. Kinesiology looks at the cause, structurally, biomechanically, emotionally and energetically.

Kinesiology is the answer to keeping the body balanced, able to cope with what life throws at us. By challenging muscles in specific positions, a qualified Kinesiologist will get to the root of the problem and be able to deal with it. Some problems fix easily others are more layered and take longer, it is usually in connection with how long the person has had the problem. Kinesiology deals with the causes NOT the symptoms.

Kinesiology offers healthy, practical solutions to change common health problems that are not due to disease or pathological conditions for example:

Low energy – Pain – Food Allergies & Sensitivities – Nutritional deficiencies – Low self-esteem – Increased Personal Performance – Fears, Phobias & Anxieties – Learning Difficulties – Dyslexia – Muscular-Skeletal Problems – Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) – Addictions – M.E. / Chronic Fatigue Symptoms/ Infections etc

In Dr George Goodheart's own words, "Applied Kinesiology had a simple beginning in 1964, based on the concept that antagonist muscle weakness is involved in most muscle spasms and, indeed, is primary."
