Here at The Little Escape, we have a brand new therapist, Kostas. I was lucky enough to catch his talk on Kinesiology last week and thought I would share what I learnt about this interesting therapy.
Kinesiology (pronounced Kin-easy-ology), is a way of identifying any imbalances a person has by monitoring their ability to hold their muscles against light pressure.
Each muscle is related to an organ and also to an energy pathway called a meridian. Together the muscle, organ and meridian form a circuit. If there are chemical, emotional, structural or energetic stresses affecting the circuit, the muscle tested will feel ‘spongy’, indicating an imbalance.
Once an imbalance is found the Kinesiologist uses the muscle test again to get feedback from the person’s body about what factors are aggravating the imbalance and what will help to rebalance it.
Here is how it works…
Each time a relevant factor is introduced the muscles responses change, a bit like a switch. Imagine a spongy muscle as being ‘off’. If the person then thinks of an emotional stress and the muscle is suddenly able to hold against the pressure, i.e it switches ‘on’, that indicates that emotional stress is involved in that imbalance.
Similarly, if a particular nutrient when placed on the body, causes the muscle to switch ‘on’, we know it will be helpful. The same process can be used to find related structural problems and energetic factors.
Based on feedback the Kinesiologist and client can discover exactly what it is involved in the imbalance and devise a treatment plan. These can include nutritional supplements, various emotional stress release techniques, homeopathy, flower remedies, acupressure, chakra rebalancing, suggested lifestyle changes and more. The exact treatment you receive depends on feedback your body gives through the muscle test about what it needs to return to health.
Kostas is with us every Thursday evening for you to come and experience this for yourself. Also you can check out his website http://totalhealthnow.co.uk/
