History (in brief)

What is Kinesiology?

This document provides general information of what to expect when you visit a therapist, and a general theory behind how their discipline works. It must be noted, however, that every therapist works in an individual way, and may subscribe to slightly different theories on how their discipline works. It is always advisable that you ask to see relevant qualifications and discuss the treatment offered to you by the practitioner if you are in any doubt whatsoever.

It is thought that the body 'knows' why it is ill and that this knowledge can be tested through muscle resistance. Sensitivities to food and toxicity levels within the body can also be tested for.

Applied kinesiologists believe that the whole body is connected via a complex network of pathways along which energy passes. The muscles, glands, organs, lymphatic, circulatory and nervous system are all interconnected. Because of this interconnectedness it is believed that the weakness or strength of certain muscles corresponds to particular body systems.

When illness, injury or toxic overload occurs in any part of the body, the muscles have their energy circuit "turned off". Muscles are in a constant state of relaxation or contraction, yet when a muscle is weak its opposite muscle will become strained and tense in an effort to compensate for the weakened muscle. It is thought that by testing these muscles the practitioner is able to diagnose imbalances within the body.
