Kinesiology comes from the greek word 'Kinesis' meaning motion.
Kinesiology is the study of muscles and their motion. Applied Kinesiology is a system of applying muscle testing as a tool for identifying and monitoring the motion and flow of energy in the body. Where blockages are found in the form of inconsistent muscle response, a series of corrections may be used to restore balance. This system of Applied Kinesiology was originally developed by Dr. George Goodheart in the 1960's and has since developed into a worldwide network of practitioners.
Kinesiology spans a remarkable spectrum of applications taking into account the physical aspects of health in addition to emotional, nutritional and electrical functions and conditions. It is truely holistic in that it is fully compatible with other therapies and is particularly useful as a means of determining which therapies will be of the highest benefiet in meeting any particular need or requirment of the individual person. The main function of Kinesiology is to ask the body directly what it requires and therefore to bypass mental confusion and bias. It's ultimate aim is to promote health through the alleviation of stress which in it's multiple forms, leads to emotional, mental and physical malfunction. Most people find Kinesiology sessions to be relaxing and pleasant and report feeling much more clear and focused afterwards.
