What is Kinesiology?
A brief introduction to Kinesiology
Kinesiology is known to treat a wide range of health issues and problems. It offers a holistic, safe, and long term solution to muscular disorders, nervous disorders, emotional problems, stress, behavioural problems, and many other physical and emotional problems.
What is kinesiology?
The term refers to the study of movement and was first used by an American chiropractor named Dr. George Goodheart in 1964. Kinesiology works on the principle that every single muscle in our body is connected with a specific part of the body. In case a muscle is not working properly, it would cause problem in the part of the body to which it is related. Kinesiology aims to improve the overall health of a person by ensuring that all the muscles in the body are functioning correctly.
During a kinesiology session, professional kinesiology practitioner performs muscle testing to find energy imbalances in the body. The practitioner then makes use of one or more kinesiology techniques to balance the body’s energy and promote its healing, naturally.
Some of the techniques that are commonly used in kinesiology are lymphatic massage, acupressure, emotional release, muscle release, use of flower essences and homeopathic and nutritional advice. Depending on the physical nature of the problem or the disease that a person is suffering from, the kinesiology practitioner makes use of one or more techniques.
Kinesiology can be used to treat a wide range of disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, frozen, shoulder, whiplash, arthritis, headache, pain in neck, back, and shoulders. Kinesiology can also help children in many ways, such as improving their concentration, memory, and learning. It also helps resolve emotional problems related to stress, anxiety and trauma. Nutritional deficiencies and skin allergies can also be treated with kinesiology.
