Kinesiology was originally developed by the American chiropractor Dr John Goodheart in the 1960’s to enhance and improve the quality of his treatments. Since then, it has evolved into many different branches, all based on the scientific, neurological workings of the body.
“Kinesiology is the science of assessing the energetic systems of a person for balanced function, by using the change of physiological response through the muscular system as feedback. Using this same feedback, Kinesiology identifies any non-invasive treatment strategy to primarily affect and balance the energetic systems of a person for the purpose of promoting, restoring and maintaining health.” The International Association Of Specialised Kinesiologists (IASK) Definition
Sometimes we find ourselves in distress. This is our body’s way of indicating that we are “off track” or not coping in one or more areas of our life. In other words we need to pay attention to the signals and find a way to adapt and deal with the situation appropriately.
When we are presented with dis-ease symptoms it is a message from the body that we are not living to our full potential and it is time to address those factors that are limiting us. To address this imbalance kinesiology is used as a method of finding the underlying cause or issue. Muscle Testing is used as a verification biofeedback tool in a series of tests or protocols to achieve a particular end result or goal.
Adaption is the ability of all the systems in the person to work together to create changes that suit the desired result in that particular circumstance. Kinesiology is used to find where and how a person is unable to adapt appropriately.” The Beginning of Understanding Kinesiology – Andrew Verity
