What is Kinesiology?

It is one of, if not the most holistic modality available in complementary medicine. Kinesiology was developed by a Dr of chiropractic in the 1960s and merges western anatomy and physiology with traditional Chinese medicine. Each person is approached through the lens of bio-individuality, and kinesiology works with this uniqueness, ‘balancing’ the whole being back to a state of homeostasis. A foundational concept of kinesiology is the Triangle of Health, with the three sides representing the key aspects of our being: Physical/Structural; Mental/Emotional; Bio-Chemical; Kinesiology uses ‘muscle testing’ to access understanding and incongruences across all aspects of health and facilitates the process of ‘balancing’ the individual’s requirements to achieve outcomes.
