Kinesiology Q&A

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology, also known as biomechanics, is a non-invasive, holistic study of body function. The primary goal of this approach is restoring and maintaining balance within the body to optimize one’s health. A kinesiologist identifies imbalances with muscle testing then applies structural, mental, nutritional, and energetic balancing techniques to address the imbalance. Kinesiology is based on the philosophy that the body has natural healing abilities when everything is in balance. Therefore, the practice of kinesiology restores balance to the body to alleviate pain, improve physical and mental performance, and enhance energy.

How does kinesiology work?

The kinesiologist uses muscle testing to identify energetic and structural imbalances in the body. Once the imbalances are identified, the kinesiologist will provide therapies and lifestyle adjustment guidance to restore balance to the body. Muscle testing often gives the practitioner and patient, immediate feedback, to confirm that corrections have been effective.

What are the benefits of kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a holistic treatment that not only considers the overall health and wellbeing of a patient but also provides improvements to a patient's physical, mental, and emotional health. For example, some patients experience rapid relief of acute and chronic pain. Patients have found relief from conditions including joint conditions such as knee and hip problems, frozen shoulder, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Other patients use kinesiology to improve their physical and mental focus to become champions in their sports. Kinesiology focuses on the needs of the individual patient, with treatments tailored to address those specific needs. The individual focus on improving the body’s ability to heal itself often stimulates emotional benefits, including:

  • Removal of lifelong stressors
  • Eliminating post-traumatic stress
  • Enhancement of performance
  • Creativity

Kinesiology can also identify food intolerances and potential allergies. Patients may not even know that they are not reaching their optimal performance because of low grade inflammation or allergic reaction to allergenic foods. Enabling the body to operate at optimal levels allows patients to achieve personal goals such as: anti-aging, weight loss, increased energy, better relationships, and career enhancement.
