What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology comes from the Greek word meaning “study of muscles and their movement” and was discovered by Dr George Goodheart, an American Chiropractor in the 1960’s after realising that giving muscles a physical stimuli such as a nutritional supplement would make a muscle strengthen in testing compared something detrimental to health, such as artificial sweetener, which would bring about a weakened response from the muscle. What’s fascinating here is in no way could the mind get involved, this was the body talking it’s language. He also linked muscle testing with traditional Chinese medicine working with the body’s subtle energy to form a unique and incredible holistic healing treatment known as Applied Kinesiology.
Brian Butler founder of The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology brought this to the UK and is known as Systematic Kinesiology.
As David R, Hawkins wrote in Power vs Force “to explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed”. It can be quite difficult to explain in a succinct way or simple terms how incredible Kinesiology is as a treatment and sometimes you just have to experience it to believe just how beneficial it is.
When muscles are not working at their optimum strength, other muscles compensate, become painful and in the end, become over used. Kinesiology takes the guess work out of how to bring the body back into balance by using muscle testing to find the root cause of imbalances in the body. A holistic approach is taken not just “fire fighting” symptoms but finding the root cause in looking at the whole person, their physical body & energy, emotions and nutrition.
The human body is so intelligent it knows how to heal itself, Kinesiology is the perfect companion to ask it what it needs to do this, to come back into balance and the results are incredible. To experience the magic of the body communicating what it needs through the muscles, is in so many cases, life changing.
Sometimes something a simple approach is needed to bring ourselves back into balance such as finding out if we have a food intolerance which could lead to a minor change in diet or taking nutritional supplements to boost energy levels, other times we feel stuck in life and can’t move on from emotions, trauma or thought patterns that no longer serve us and need to be released. Our organs and body systems such as digestion also need support as do our muscles and joints.
Kinesiology can be used for:
Intolerance & food testing
Stress & anxiety
Sleep issues & fatigue
Muscle strengthening & imbalances
