Have you ever wished you knew exactly what was wrong within your body? Why your knees hurt or why you are always fatigued? Kinesiology is one of the world’s most under-utilised forms of therapy.
What exactly is kinesiology? It is the study of movement through muscular monitoring – otherwise known as biofeedback. Biofeedback through muscle monitoring looks at the possible causes for imbalances within your body and attempts to correct the issues found by using specialised lymphatic massage, nutrition, emotional work as well as electrical balancing.
How does muscle testing actually work? By correctly applying a minimal amount of pressure to a specific muscle or muscle group thereafter assessing your ability to meet pressure and resist. This can be done over the entire body and thus allowing kinesiologists to evaluate and identify imbalances within various structures of the body. Below are but just a few of the benefits of muscle testing.
As the testing is being done on a bio-feedback basis there is no need for invasive examinations, or expensive sonograms and allergy testings. All we require for this process is an open and willing mind as well as your body. This is a huge benefit to all our patients as they are no longer pushed from pillar to post in order to receive the correct prognosis. After just a few sessions we will be able to identify and clear that which would have usually taken weeks of blood test results, sonograms, and even X-rays.
Muscle Testing Is Holistic:
Using your body and mind as a whole allows for kinesiologists to locate whether the issue is sitting in your mind or body. For example, someone who is dealing with chronic migraines and is constantly on medications may walk into a meeting with a kinesiologist and come to the realisation that the root cause of their pain has been anxiety caused by PTSD that was untreated. This is one of the reasons traditional doctors struggle to find the root cause of chronic pain, they have been taught to treat symptoms instead of finding the root cause of the problem.
Muscle Testing And Neuro-feedback To Treat Depression:
Muscle testing and neuro-feedback working in conjunction with one another have been extremely successful in the identification and treatment of depression. Muscle testing is able to identify metal build-ups which may inhibit the transmission of serotonin. Serotonin otherwise known as the ‘happy’ chemical may become subdued due to these blockages around the body. Once the blockages have been cleared, it leaves the serotonin able to freely circulate the body and thus eliminating the need for medications.
Imbalances Within The Body That Muscle Testing Can Detect:
Whilst kinesiology uses the muscles to verify issues within the body, a kinesiologist is able to identify four key areas that could require adjustment. The first of these is to identify issues or imbalances within the hormones, PH balances as well as chemical nutrition. The second key area would be the structural side of your body like issues within the bones, muscles, or tissues. The third key area is emotional fears, phobias, previous traumas whether emotional or physical as well as your level of stress. The fourth and final key is electrical hydration, energy levels as well as energetic fields.
The biggest benefit surrounding kinesiology is that all of this is done by monitoring the muscles and your body’s response to the questions that are being asked. It is of vital importance that you allow your practitioner to guide you through this process uninhibited for the full benefits of this practice to work.
