Aspects of Kinesiology
The following are outlines of some of the main aspects of kinesiology which one can learn in various courses or experience in one to one consultation work.
Meridians & Circuits
In Kinesiology one can obtain feedback about the state of the meridians in the body
(meridians are channels of subtle energy that nourish the functions and organs of the
body - they form the basis of acupuncture and the ancient Chinese healing principles).
This is important since meridian energy is fundamental to our state of
What is so interesting about meridians is that they are an intricate part of a whole
network of 'circuits 'interconnecting different parts and functions of the body. These
circuits, which include those in the nervous system, create a complex yet beautiful
functioning web. Through stress, inappropriate diet and or various other
factors, meridians and their related circuits, 'Switch off like a blown fuse,
upsetting the smooth or regular functioning of the body. Sometimes
inappropriate circuits will 'switch on' as in bad habits or improper
responses to stress. A wonderful feature of Kinesiology is its ability to locate
and influence the many circuits of the body.
Stress related work is becoming a major part of the Kinesiology field, and fundamental to its effectiveness in this area is the Emotional Stress Release or Stress Defusing concepts.
Stress Release techniques are very simple yet most powerful. They are taught in all Kinesiology courses and are used regularly in consulting work. This is because at the basis of many disharmonies we find stress and emotions blocking or impairing proper body and mind functioning. Stress Release can help to clear blockages related to past or present traumas, belief systems, negative thoughts etc.
The basis of Stress Release can be used by any individual for their own growth or to help others. It also functions effectively when used with affirmations or when working with goals.
Much of the electrical, circuit or nervous system work in Kinesiology comes into the realm of 'brain integration' and deals with aspects such as learning problems. Kinesiology has developed many 'switch on' points and techniques for the eyes, ears, coordination and the brain as a 'whole'.
The power of Kinesiology in this area has been brought to the fore by Dr Paul Dennison, whose discoveries updating conventional cross patterning movements have been most profound. While 'cross-crawling' is considered a normal motor activity, many people are not 'switched on' to this integrated movement. Consequently their body prefers non-integrated modes and circuits which have a detrimental effect on their ability to learn or respond appropriately to stress. Switching people back on in this respect is very basic to Kinesiology work. The simplicity of techniques which one can learn in this area is truly amazing.
Food & Sensitivity Testing
Twentieth Century living has given us a time where food sensitivities and "allergies" are manifesting as major health concerns (chemical sensitivities included). Most of us encounter food sensitivities, however, it is the severity and the range which determines the effects. Unfortunately, in many cases we are not aware that certain foods (or chemicals) are creating imbalances.
Muscle testing is a wonderful tool for determining food intolerances or
sensitivities. In fact, with Kinesiology techniques, individuals are able to monitor regularly
what foods their bodies are coping with or not. Working this idea into any diet regime adds
further value. Also young children and babies are not excluded from help. Much feedback
has come from mothers who have used muscle testing (surrogate) with their
infants & children with dramatic results and improvement in their child's health.
