Kinesiology is a complementary health therapy using simple muscle testing techniques. The theory of muscle testing was first developed by an orthopaedic surgeon, R.W.Lovett, who was working with polio victims in the 1930’s. It was further developed by a chiropractor, Dr. George Goodheart, in the 1960’s who started using muscle testing to identify strong and weak muscles. A muscle will test either strong or weak dependent on biochemical, emotional and structural needs as well as subtle energies. Techniques including nutritional supplements, techniques for emotional stress release, Bach flower remedies, acupressure, gentle structural realignment, chakra balancing, massage of reflex points, meridian running as well as lifestyle changes are used by the practitioner to improve muscle strength to prevent or reverse the course of pain and disease.
Kinesiology addresses the whole person, emotionally, physically, chemically and energetically. Being out of balance in one aspect can affect the other aspects. As an example, if you are out of balance emotionally then you can develop a chemical, physical or energetic imbalance. The aim of the Kinesiology practitioner is to detect imbalances and to correct them. Kinesiology is gentle, non-invasive and holistic therapy.
Before a Kinesiology session it is important to avoid eating 2 hours prior to the consultation, avoid coffee and alcohol on the day and be well hydrated. It is important to wear comfortable clothes for the session. You may bring any supplements with you on the day for testing (but avoid taking them until after the session). Medications should be taken as usual but can be brought with you for using in the session to help lessen side effects etc

What happens before and during a consultation?
Prior to the consultation a case history questionnaire will be sent to you which you must complete and return to your practitioner before initial consultation. A case history questionnaire is very detailed and asks questions about your health and lifestyle from birth to your current age including your ancestry. You will need to spend time (at least an hour) completing this and may need to ask your relatives for help answering some of the questions.
During the consultation information from the questionnaire is used to put together a treatment plan consisting of naturopathic techniques, hydration and diet. In most sessions Kinesiology is used to test the body, balance muscles or make corrections. In some cases, a person may be too sick or in too much pain to be able to test well using kinesiology and it may be necessary to implement other naturopathic techniques and nutritional changes first in order to improve health so that kinesiology can be used in the future. Following your session time is spent creating your specific treatment plan consisting of naturopathic techniques, hydration and diet, which is emailed to you within 48 hours of the session along with some resources and instructions to help you.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required depends entirely on the health and progress of the individual client. At first you will be seen once a month usually for 2 or 3 treatments. Sometimes 2 or 3 treatments are enough although it is more likely that you will need up to 5 or 6 sessions to gain maximum potential of the treatments and diet changes. After the first 2 or 3 treatments it may be possible to go for longer between sessions (such as 2 or 3 months) as you will have a plan of changes that you will need to pursue.
