Health Kinesiology Therapy

Imagine if you could ask your body what you needed to enjoy vibrant health and wellbeing and actually have your body answer back. This is the founding principle of Health Kinesiology UK© – an established therapy system that combines the ancient wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine with the modern technique of muscle testing.

As you read this your body is hard at work, breathing, excreting toxins, balancing hormones, assimilating nutrients and performing countless other vital functions to keep you in balance. Sometimes that balance is disturbed – whether by physical trauma, emotional or psychological disturbances, stress, allergens or anything else.

Health Kinesiology UK© accesses your body’s unique, inner wisdom to find out exactly what you need to help you maintain balance and feel truly healthy, both inside and out. Called bioenergy, it is our natural energy that makes us alive and is sometimes referred to as Chi in traditional Chinese medicine. Ancient philosophers described its many qualities and how it is the active principle forming part of every living thing.

Using Health Kinesiology UK© you can rebalance bioenergetic reactions to substances (where you have an altered reaction on the bioenergetic level), and thereby allow the body to use its own energy more appropriately to help itself.

Definition of bioenergetic:

‘A system of exercises based on the concept that natural healing will be enhanced by bringing the patient’s body rhythms and the natural environment into harmony.’
Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 8th edition.

How does Health Kinesiology work?

Health Kinesiology UK© is a complementary therapy concerned with rebalancing the energy system of the body. It uses muscle testing to identify the problem areas. Light pressure is applied to a muscle and the response is monitored. Once the stressors are identified, gentle techniques are used to bring the body back into balance and harmony with itself. Common forms of treatment include the use of magnets, homoeopathic remedies, flower essences, self-touch, being placed in a specific body position, or even a particular thought. While doing this, acupuncture points are held to retune the energy and help maintain the body’s natural balance.

Most clients find the session a deeply relaxing and enjoyable experience. No two sessions are the same, even for people with similar issues, because each person is treated as a unique individual. Health kinesiology’s truly holistic approach of addressing issues makes it an especially powerful healing system, which is being increasingly recognised by members of the medical profession.

In a single session the therapist may identify bioenergetic allergies, rectify nutritional imbalances, deal with phobias, rebalance chakras and start the process of rebalancing the body. You don’t have to be unwell to benefit from health kinesiology. Even when there are no obvious problems, it may well be possible to improve overall wellbeing, attitude or potential.

Health Kinesiology UK© can help balance your bioenergy system allowing the body to naturally deal with life and allow you to achieve better results. Regular sessions can help you maintain a greater balance allowing other areas of your life to come under control, making it easier to feel good and look good. Health Kinesiology UK© can help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

  • Health kinesiology treats you as an individual.
  • Health kinesiology treats the whole person, not just your concerns.
  • Health kinesiology is natural – it doesn’t rely on drugs.
  • Health kinesiology is a gentle system of allowing self-healing to occur, suitable for people of all ages and dispositions, including babies, children and the elderly.

What happens during a treatment?

The client lies down fully clothed on a couch, with one forearm resting at right angles to the couch. The Health Kinesiology practitioner gently exerts a light pressure on the arm to ascertain the unique level of resistance that your muscle is able to give. If the muscle relaxes and ‘gives way’ this is interpreted as a ‘NO’ response. If the muscle remains strong and rigid, this is interpreted as a ‘YES’ response.

By presenting your body with various stress items and then testing the response of the arm muscle to see whether it relaxes or remains strong (NO or YES), the practitioner can discover what weakens your energy system and more importantly what strengthens it. It will help to identify exactly what your body needs to be in balance and to enable your system to heal/rebalance itself in a simple, non-invasive way.

Your first visit will be longer than the subsequent health kinesiology sessions because it includes a thorough assessment. The number of further health kinesiology sessions will vary according to your needs, how long a particular condition has lasted and how quickly your body is able to respond. This will be discussed during the consultation.
