What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology (pronounced kin-easy-ology) comes from the Greek word 'kinesis' meaning motion and is the study of movement. Certain aspects of the system have been used by conventional doctors and physiotherapist to test the range of movement, strength and ability of muscle-damaged patients.

Kinesiology is used to detect and rectify functional imbalances before they develop into disease. It is a complimentary therapy treatment that identifies patterns of weaknesses in muscles through gentle muscle testing.

It is in the process of being recognised by Government through the development of National Occupational Standards.

Kinesiology harnesses many techniques from allopathic medicine and other complimentary therapies in order to assist the client in correcting the imbalances identified through kinesiological assessment.

Kinesiology is a gentle non-evasive therapy with no side effects. It is perfectly safe for people of all ages and states of health.

The Kinesiology practitioner at Central England Holistic Therapies uses acupuncture, massage, zero balancing (a form of gentle manipulation of bones), postural training and nutritional and dietary advice to assist the client in correcting the imbalances identified through kinesiological assessment.


How is a Kinesiology session conducted?

To reach a diagnosis, the kinesiologist questions the person about their symptoms and current situation, and will also ask about family history, lifestyle and past medical history. The practitioner will then assess the function of a number of muscles appropriate to the client’s condition by applying gentle pressure to the muscle and asking the client to match that pressure so that the limb does not move. If the client has difficulty in matching the pressure this indicates a imbalance. Further muscle testing will then identify the correction required in order to regain full control.

The corrective action required maybe any of the following :-

  • Clearing blockages in acupuncture meridians.
  • Clearing blockages in the lymphatic system by massaging reflex points.
  • To avoid foods or other substances that the client may be sensitive to.
  • To use nutritional supplements that the client may be deficient in.
  • Postural or stretching exercises.
  • Gentle manipulation of bones to facilitate proper alignment.


How many Kinesiology sessions will be needed?

Treatments are generally weekly at first, gradually reducing as the condition improves. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the illness, its duration, and how the person responds to Kinesiology. The practitioner can advise on this at the first consultation.


What is the cost of Kinesiology treatment?

The price for Kinesiology is £100 for the initial consultation & treatment lasting 2 hours, subsequent sessions are charged at £50 and last up to 1 Hour.
