What is actually Kinesiology?

Share this Article

When you start learning Kinesiology, you think about it for a long time the easiest way is to explain to people what it is. If I meet someone face to face and they ask me “What is actually Kinesiology? ” I will start with the question: “Do you know acupuncture?” If they say yes… I continue and say something like: “Well… Kinesiology is like acupuncture but with no needles and it is created for the Western mind the understand. We use muscle testing and if you like I can show you how we do it”

I will ask permission if I can muscle test the person and often I use their real name and then a fake name, like Pluto for muscle testing, or you can say, I am a boy, I am a girl. You just need something that is true for the person and something that is untrue. That way they get glimpses of what kinesiology is about.

Most of the clients who have been coming for some time, don’t know how to explain it either. Some say… “I don’t what you do, but this magic shit works”, or “I try to tell my friends, but I cannot explain it. It makes me feel good, I think my friend has to come to see you, to experience your magic”.

I started my healing journey in 2001 and 22 years later, I still think it is a magical tool. I can not imagine a life without it. I feel so honoured to be able to use muscle testing for my family, my friends, myself and my clients. I thank the person almost every day for creating this amazing modality Touch for Health.

Touch for Health has grown so much over the last 20 years. People have explored a lot more since then and the learnings never seem to stop. It is exciting to find out new things.

I am aware that it takes a team to heal, and I am most happy to refer clients to other practitioners. Sometimes it is good to change the energy, change the scenery.

Today, someone asked me over the phone: “what is actually Kinesiology?” . I said… I just found something perfect and I will read it to you.

Here it is:

Energetic kinesiology is a holistic approach to health and wellness that combines the principles of traditional kinesiology with the idea that energy flows throughout the body and affects physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It aims to identify and resolve imbalances or blockages in the energy flow, which can manifest as physical or emotional symptoms.

In Energetic Kinesiology, practitioners use muscle testing, also known as applied kinesiology/Touch for Health, to identify areas of stress or imbalance in the body. They apply gentle pressure to specific muscle movements while asking the client to resist the pressure. If the muscle unlocks or gives way, it is considered a sign of stress or an imbalance in the corresponding energy pathway.

Practitioners then use a balance method with a variety of techniques, such as acupressure, meridian tapping, or chakra balancing, to restore balance and harmony to the energy flow. These techniques can help release tension, reduce pain, improve posture, enhance physical performance, and promote emotional well-being.

Energetic Kinesiology is often used as a complementary therapy to conventional medicine, and it can be applied to a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain and fatigue to anxiety and depression. It is a non-invasive and gentle approach that can help individuals achieve a greater sense of balance, vitality, and overall health.

If you have been wondering, what is actually kinesiology? Find a local kinesiologist. Try it, experience it, you might like it and then you can do it again.

The question of course is how many times do you see a kinesiologist? The answer is I don’t know. How long is a piece of string, how big is your onion? Most of my clients use kinesiology for stress management or maintenance. It can help with acute conditions, but it is up to you to make a choice to make an appointment and give yourself permission to heal.
