WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY?
Kinesiology is a wonderful marriage between Eastern Traditional Chinese medicine and Western Chiropractic medicine. These 2 modalities were combined by Dr Goodheart in the USA in the 1960’s and the result was the wonderful holistic therapy that today we know as Kinesiology.
MIND BODY & SOUL
Kinesiology, Naturopathy and Breath Therapy
are holistic ways of regaining and maintaining your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. They stimulate your body’s healing potential.
Kinesiology works on a wide range of symptoms including physical, biochemical,emotional/mental and spiritual issues. Examples of issues I deal with include:
When considering your symptoms (depression, pain, etc) my purpose is to uncover the root cause of the stress that resulted in your symptom and to remove that energy blockage.
Kinesiology is totally pain free and non-intrusive. You remain fully clothed for your session.
Kinesiology is non-invasive and uses muscle monitoring as a biofeedback system toidentify those factors that are blocking your body’s natural healing processes.
When As it is holistic multiple factors are taken into account; including physical, biochemistry, emotional, electro-magnetic and spiritual. The beauty of muscle monitoring is that it accesses subconscious information that you as a client may not even have been aware of on a conscious level.
Your body really is a mirror of your inner thoughts and beliefs. The important thing
is to remember to listen to it; your symptoms are telling you something. We get so busy working, doing and so forth that we don’t actually sit down and truly listen to what it is our bodies are trying to tell us. This is what makes Kinesiology wonderful as it looks beyond symptoms to find causes and it is when we clear causes of stress thattrue healing occurs.
Kinesiology does not diagnose or treat symptoms, rather it addresses the underlying stress patterns associated with imbalances in your body.
As a Kinesiologist I work extensively with meridians and their associated acupoints.
What exactly are these? Below you can find some basic information which will give
you an understanding to the background of what your session entails.
MERIDIANS & ACUPUNCTURE POINTS
The meridian system, also known as the acupuncture system, has its basis in Traditional Chinese Medicine. One can think of the meridian system as a giant web, linking different parts of
our body together. Its purpose is to distribute qi
(pronounced chee) or energy to every part of
The flow of qi throughout the meridian system concentrates in certain areas on the surface of the skin and these are the acupuncture points (or acupoints). Meridians can therefore be seen as a collection of acupuncture points.
We have 12 meridians which are named according to their corresponding organs (heart, small intestine, pericardium, triple heater, stomach, spleen, lung, large intestine, bladder, kidney, liver and gall bladder) and 2 additional meridians known
as governing vessel and central vessel. The qi flow in our 12 meridians follows a specific time schedule with qi being more prevalent in different meridians at different times of the day. So for example, the
active time for the Liver meridian is 1am – 3am so if you are waking up at this time every morning it is your liver telling you that it needs looking at (on a physical level you may be need to be detoxing or on an emotional level you may need to deal with
anger in your life (as the liver meridian emotion is anger).
