What is Kinesiology?


As a kinesiologist, the most common question I get asked is, ‘what is kinesiology?

A lot of people have heard about kinesiology before but don’t really know what it is. Rather than starting with what, I think it’s better to start with why.

‘Why would you see a kinesiologist?’

Some of the most common concerns that we help people with are:
  • Energy and sleep;
  • Hormonal imbalance;
  • Skin concerns;
  • Digestive problems;
  • Emotional difficulties;
  • Pain or tension in the body;
  • Infertility
  • Stress and anxiety.

Think of it like this – kinesiology aims to remove any blockages that might be preventing your body from healing and functioning at an optimal level.

It is important to remember that your body wants to be well. So if you are unwell, your body is literally in dis-ease.

Kinesiology helps to restore this balance and ease back to your body.

Here are a few facts about kinesiology to help you get a better understanding:
  • The word, kinesiology, actually means ‘the study of human movement.’
  • Kinesiology originated in the 1970’s.
  • It is a unique blend of Eastern traditional medicine and Western principles.
  • George Goodhart, an American chiropractor started using muscle testing in about 1964 and created applied kinesiology.
  • Kinesiology is safe, effective, non-invasive and takes a holistic approach to health.
  • Gentle muscle testing accesses the body’s own biofeedback system and allows us to determine where there might be underlying stress patterns in your body.
  • This stress could be physical, emotional, biochemical or energetic.
  • Complementary and natural techniques are then used to balance or dissolve this stress.
  • These could include: acupressure points, nutrition and lifestyle advice, flower essences, energy or chakra corrections, postural and muscular work, neuro-lymphatic stimulation, emotional stress release techniques and so much more.
  • Every kinesiology session is unique to you and your body at that time, and no two sessions are ever the same.
  • Kinesiology aims to cure the root of the problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms.


How long is a kinesiology session?
  • Adults – 1.5 hours or 1 hour
  • Kids – 1 hour

I have a special interest in working with children to help them reach their full potential at school and at home. So many things affect a child’s development and kinesiology is really effective at seeing where the missing puzzles pieces might be and building those strong foundations.
