We use the technique of muscle testing for our natural health testing and biochemistry sessions. This is part of the kinesiology method.
Kinesiology was founded in 1964 by chiropractor George H. Goodheart. It is a diagnostic technique using basic muscle testing to enable practitioners to identify areas of dysfunction within the body as a whole. Based on the principle that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism that – put simply – aims to be well, kinesiology tests for chemical, emotional, or structural problems. These three form the ‘triad of health’ and many health problems can be a combination of these three – or even start as one and become more complex, affecting the other aspects of a person’s health.
The purpose of using kinesiology to test you directly or your hair sample is two-fold: firstly to aid in diagnosis, i.e. to identify in which part of your body the imbalance occurs, and secondly to find a remedy or treatment that will help. This may be identifying which nutrients you are deficient in, and finding the optimal source of that nutrient.
This is the process we go through:
- Muscle testing.
- Identify imbalances in your biochemistry.
- Establish the body’s priority needs, i.e. what needs treating first.
- Make corrections and prescribe correcting remedies, diet and lifestyle.
- Create balance.
Kinesiology is primarily concerned with neuromuscular function and how it relates to the regulation of structural, chemical and mental physiology.
The triad of health is interactive and all sides must be evaluated to establish the underlying causes of a problem. A problem on one side of the triangle can effect the other two aspects of health.
The skills involved in kinesiology have been refined from many disciplines including chiropractic, osteopathy, medicine, dentistry, acupuncture, biochemistry, psychology, homeopathy and naturopathy.
Kinesiology is a way of testing any presenting symptoms as well as establishing and correcting any imbalances that may result in symptoms if left untreated. It is not a replacement for standard medical consultation.
