“Kinesiology, literally the study of body movement, encompasses holistic health disciplines which use gentle manual muscle testing to monitor information about a person’s well being. It originated in the 1960′s combining Western techniques with Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies factors that block the body’s natural healing process. These dysfunctions are rectified by attention to reflex and acupressure points, the use of specific body movements and nutritional support. Kinesiology can relieve pain, stress, muscular and nervous disorders; detect allergies and nutritional deficiencies; assist with psychological and learning problems, stimulate energies and release untapped potential.”
(as defined by the British Parliament)
1.The force per unit area applied to an object. Objects subject to stress tend to become distorted or deformed.
a. A physiologic reaction by an organism to an uncomfortable or unfamiliar physical or psychological stimulus. Biological changes result from stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, including a heightened state of alertness, anxiety, increased heart rate, and sweating.
b. The stimulus or circumstance causing such a reaction. (Source)
Stress can manifest itself in many ways, particularly in the body. Have you ever noticed when you are faced with a situation, say when you’re nervous, you can feel that in your body in the form of butterflies or a tightening sensation in your stomach. Or when you’re angry, you can experience increased heart rate and perspiration, shallow breathing flushed cheeks. Prolonged and sustained experience of these symptoms could potentially lead to unwanted health issues such as gut problems or hypertension (high blood pressure), which could then lead to further stress in trying to manage and control these symptoms. It can become a never ending cycle.
Kinesiology is a modality that seeks to address stress as it presents itself – this could be either physically, emotionally or energetically. Using gentle muscle monitoring techniques, Kinesiology looks at identifying and treating the root cause of the issue at hand – what was making you nervous or angry, where was this pattern first learned – rather than just focussing on the symptoms experienced, making it a more effective treatment in addressing any imbalance in your system. Using a combination of modalities (such as acupressure, flower essences, chakras to name a very few) we can seek to address the imbalances to restore equilibrium in the body, allowing clarity and peace to be achieved.
