It is time to thrive
LET’S DEFINE IT…
“Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s well-being. Originating in the 1970’s, it combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies the elements which inhibit the body’s natural internal energies and accessing the life enhancing potential within the individual.” (Definition approved by the Australian Kinesiology Association in 1999.)
At the beginning of a session we will start with an informal chat for about 30 minutes, where I will take a thorough history, discussing with you any symptoms you may have or any areas you’d like to focus on and improve. If you’re unsure of exactly why you are feeling the way you are, that is ok too - we can explore that during the session using muscle testing.
After the initial chat, you then lie on the massage table and I use Kinesiology (muscle testing) to uncover the root cause of the stress causing your symptoms.
RETRAIN THE BRAIN
Once we uncover the highest priority stressor, I then use a number of different techniques to remove that blockage and retrain the brain (forming new neural pathways) at different time frames. In turn, the next time you come up against the challenge once again, you can approach it in a completely new way.
Then end result is you living more in flow and the best version of you! Read below for an in-depth description of this process.
STEP 1 - Identify the symptoms
PROMOTING PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH
We are all born with the full potential to thrive! Over time, we can pick up fears, misperceptions and limiting beliefs in a variety of situations which can cause blockages or obstacles from living in complete flow or harmony and cause friction or stress. Sometimes we don’t know what is holding us back, and this is where Kinesiology comes in.
Whether your issue is physical, nutritional, biochemical, mental, emotional, or energetic, Kinesiology (through muscle testing) can help uncover the root cause of your symptom and in turn we can rectify it using Neuro-Training techniques.
Kinesiology and Neuro-Training combine Eastern medicine philosophies with Western understandings of anatomy & physiology to promote physical, emotional & psychological health.
STEP 2 - Muscle Monitoring
FINDING ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS
According to cognitive neuroscientists, only 5 % of our thoughts are conscious. Therefore most of our decisions, actions, emotions, and behaviour depends on the 95% of brain activity that goes beyond our conscious awareness - the subconscious. This is where muscle testing and Kinesiology can help us to tap into what the root cause of our stress or conflict is which is causing the symptom.

With Kinesiology, we are not ‘healing’ a person, or curing a disease, but in fact bringing a person back onto their line of recuperation or into “homeostasis” before it turns into a chronic illness or disease.
Walter Cannon, an American physiologist of the early 20th century, spoke of the “wisdom of the body” and he coined the the word homeostasis. Literally this term means “unchanging” but in fact is used to describe how dynamic the mind and body are - with its ability to maintain relatively stable internal conditions even though the outside world changes continuously.
Chinese and Eastern medicine really embraces the logic that it prevention is better than cure and emphasises the importance of keeping the mind and body in Homeostasis.
The Nei Jing, a medical classic written in the second century BC states: “Maintaining order rather than correcting disorder is the ultimate principle of wisdom. To cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one already feels thirsty, or forging weapons after the war has already begun”
Your body knows why it’s not functioning properly and what is needed for it to be brought back into alignment. We use muscle testing to find the highest priority stressor or obstacle which is holding you back as the basis of work for each session.
HOW DOES THE MUSCLE SHOW US THE PRIORITY STRESSOR?
According to cognitive neuroscientists, only 5 % of our thoughts are conscious. Therefore most of our decisions, actions, emotions, and behaviour depends on the 95 % of brain activity that goes beyond our conscious awareness - the subconscious. This is where muscle monitoring and Kinesiology can help us to identify what the root cause of our stress or conflict is which is causing the symptom.
Muscle monitoring (or muscle testing) is a technique used in Kinesiology to identify the presence of stresses or imbalances in the body. Also known as a ‘biofeedback tool’, muscle monitoring offers a direct link into the subconscious via the cybernetic loop between the brain and the body.
After doing a number of pre-checks on the muscle to ensure it’s integrity (including dehydration, switching and blocking), the practitioner will muscle check a number of scenarios to find the highest priority context or stressor to work on. If the muscle holds during this gentle test, it is considered to be ‘locked’. A muscle will ‘lock’ because the level of neurological information flow between the muscle and the central nervous system is sufficient to maintain muscle contraction in opposition to the dynamic pressure applied. If a muscle gives during this gentle test, it is considered ‘unlocked’. This is due to insufficient neurological flow between the muscle and the central nervous system, which occurs because of a physical, emotional, and/or mental stresses.
STEP 3 - Retrain the brain
HOW DO WE BALANCE THE STRESSOR?
Once we find the highest priority stressor or obstacle we can then balance it.
We use Neuro Training (incorporating many modalities or techniques including meridian therapy, homeopathy, imagineering and breathwork - just to name a few) to retrain the brain and to create a new way of dealing with challenges and in turn start to thrive.
