Conventionally, the word Kinesiology Means the Study of Motion

In the natural health field, the term kinesiology is used to indicate the systems which have sprung from Applied Kinesiology and Touch for Health. The concept of "muscle testing" becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting imbalances in the body which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, injuries, etc. One exciting aspect of kinesiology is called "muscle balancing". Muscles are evaluated using muscle testing. Muscles are then stimulated using corrections like acupressure to work at full potential.

In the early sixties an American Chiropractor, George Goodheart, D.C., began to use muscle testing to evaluate and correct the state of various bodily functions. He took the study of movement (kinesiology) and looked for ways to correct any weakness and imbalances detected (applying his knowledge). He formulated Applied Kinesiology, a system he made available to other chiropractors and professionals.

In the early seventies, another chiropractor, John Thie, DC., systemized kinesiology for the lay person, making techniques simple and practical for anyone.

The techniques of kinesiology have continued to develop and broad application has blossomed greatly. Many imbalances may lay behind the physical, mental and emotional problems which are experienced today. One of the great virtues of kinesiology is its versatility. Its concepts and techniques can be applied almost anywhere at anytime.

Specialized Kinesiology is an educational process that helps you improve your quality of life. A kinesiology balance can enhance learning and performance skills, correct electromagnetic distress, eliminate physical dysfunction due to energy blockages, facilitate emotional balance and transform limiting beliefs systems that are outside of conscious awareness. Clients often enjoy more freedom and peace of mind.

Specialized Kinesiology works on the basis that our inner, subjective states determine our overall health and interactions. The outer, physical body is a manifestation of our inner thoughts and emotions. Similarly, our thoughts and emotions are meant to reflect our essential Self. When this four dimensional system (physical-emotional-mental-spiritual) is aligned and coherent, we experience radiant health and are able to live our lives to the fullest.

When any aspect of our multi dimensional system is out of balance the entire system is affected, as is the quality of life in general. Often, due to limitations in consciousness and despite efforts to the contrary, our bio-psycho-emotional aspects are not aligned with essential Self. Thoughts and emotions can often become automatic, habitual and/or imported from others. They seem to take on lives of their own and we begin to feel powerless, out of control, isolated, or confused as to why situations do not turn out as we intended.
Specialized Kinesiology works on the basis that we each inherently know what is best for ourselves and that real healing comes from within. The energies of the essential Self are vibrating at higher frequencies and can powerfully realign the physical, emotional, and mental vehicles. Thus, by bringing blockages into conscious awareness--and by accessing and actualizing the innate intelligence and inner resources of each individual--balance is restored.

The Specialized Kinesiology process works on multiple levels simultaneously. It unites the bodymind system by utilizing the powerful yet subtle method of manual muscle monitoring to identify limiting belief systems and other blocks that often lie outside of our awareness. Distortions in the energy fields, emotional imprinting, out-dated decisions, illusions and other imbalances are easily identified and brought to the level of consciousness. The Specialized Kinesiology process recognizes consciousness itself as a powerful healing energy in its own right. The ultimate goal is continuity of consciousness on all levels.
Specialized Kinesiology is a potent, comprehensive energy balancing process by itself and also serves as a powerful adjunct to conventional psychotherapy or bodywork. A kinesiology balance facilitates physical well-being, personal growth, and spiritual development.

How did we create these blockages?

Specialized Kinesiology is based on the belief that the body stores all information, like a computer. This information can be reproduced if the right question is asked and, simultaneously, the right muscle monitor is done.

The stored information originates from our own life and is mixed with information acquired from our ancestors. This information is grouped with interrelated information and stored physiologically. An event, together with the emotion related to it, decisions related to the emotion, specific circumstances of life at the time of the event, smells, tastes or sounds, specific muscles or groups of muscles, specific brain functions and the specific neuro-program that made it possible for this package to be created all store together as a package. When the body encounters a similar situation it adds to the present information. This causes problems to recur over and over. On top of that, the body has a tendency to continuously search for similar circumstances in the present because it recognizes them. Problems repeat instead of disappear.

If we understand how our memory works with its information packages, we can also understand how health problems or diseases can originate and sometimes even pass from generation to generation. The body repeats patterns until they literally make us ill.
Usually it is an emotion that keeps the negatively operating programs going. This is the emotion that we are looking for. The goal is to replace any survival decisions that are linked to the emotions with “living” decisions that are useful today.

Muscle Balancing

Specialized Kinesiology began as a system of muscle evaluation and balancing. In Specialized Kinesiology each muscle in the body relates to a specific meridian, a pathway of energy through the body. We can test muscles and use them to evaluate the integrity of the meridians at the same time. Meridians also relate to organs, allowing the muscles to give us information about their function as well. Evaluation of a muscle response can be a guide in supplement testing.

Posture Balancing and Reactive Muscles

Sometimes, through injury or repetitive muscular misuse, our posture changes. By correcting energy flow through involved muscles and the reactions between muscles within a group (reactive muscles), posture can be realigned. Using muscle balancing and other specialized kinesiology techniques chronic patterns of muscle can be re-educated.

Are your muscles in a chronic pattern? Do you use your body in a repetitive way? Are you energized or tired after walking or exercising? Would you like your muscles to work together co-operatively so you feel better? Specialized kinesiology may find answers for you.
Do you know what your body knows? Kinesiology can help.

Modalities that are based on Kinesiology:

BodyTalk is consciousness based healthcare. BodyTalk can be used to address specific health problems, as well as being a preventative health maintenance measure.
The BodyTalk System seeks to re-establish broken links of communication between different areas such as organs, glands, muscles, bones, and energy centers resulting in improved functioning. Most importantly, the BodyTalk practitioner is guided specifically by the innate intelligence of the patient, thus ensuring that the human body's remarkable healing capabilities are being utilized to their maximum potential.

Emotional Freedom Technique or Thought Field Therapy EFT is one of many techniques known under the name "energy psychology." These are physical tools (often using acupressure or the chakras) that help to release emotional stress and tension. EFT has famously been used for phobias, pain, to change bad habits, and to improve sports and study performance. It is an innovative and effective therapy tool for the modern age, and has been praised by such experts as Deepak Chopra, Candace Pert, Norm Shealy, and Donna Eden.

Hyperton-X (HTX) Developed by the late Frank Mahoney, HTX is designed to identify and release the hypertonic (over-tight) state of muscles. Releasing the muscles leads to increased range of motion, reduction of pain and has a profound impact on sports performance, injuries and learning difficulties.
Touch for Health In Touch for Health muscles become monitors (biofeedback) of stress and imbalance within the body. The concept of “muscle testing” becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems and injuries.
Touch for Health is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life!

The Yuen Method of Chinese Energetic Medicine is a powerful touch or non-touch technique blending anatomy, physiology, Specialized Kinesiology, structural analysis, energetic technique and quantum physics, to quickly locate and shift your imbalances/blocks on all levels and dimensions. When weak energy signals in the body are identified and optimized, you can experience immediate relief from physical pain, emotional issues, unproductive behavior and more. Chronic and painful conditions that have resisted all other healing modalities respond well to the Yuen Method.

Body Organization Sometimes through physical or emotional trauma, organs may adjust or prolapse, valves may lock open or closed, creating physical disharmony. Through massage type manipulation and acupressure points the soft tissue body can be reorganized to its original structure/function.

The flow of food through the digestive system is enhanced when the valves and organs are functioning at their potential.

Symptom relief as reported may include:

• Gas
• Bloating
• Heartburn
• Stress incontinence (bladder control)
• Loose stool
• Constipation
• Urinary incontinence
