The word Kinesiology is pronounced kin-easy-ology. It is simply the study of muscles and the movement of the body. Kinesiology makes use of “muscle monitoring” – holding a muscle against light pressure – as a method of getting feedback from the body. This enables a Kinesiologist to identify what is causing imbalances within the body’s system and how best to re-establish that balance.


The human body is naturally a self-healing and self-regulating system and is designed to be in balance on all levels (physically, mentally, emotionally).

Specialised Kinesiology is a very gentle, non-invasive yet powerful therapy, and at its core is the fact that the human body has its own innate healing ability – but it is not always able to access this ability. The main aim of Specialized Kinesiology is to assist the body in being better able to heal itself and be more in balance.

Sometimes, however, we find ourselves in a state of “dis-stress” or “dis-ease” – either physically, mentally or emotionally. This is our body’s way of indicating that we have gone “off track”. Symptoms are our body’s way of communicating to let us know that we are “off track”, not living to our full potential, or not coping in one or more aspects or areas of our life.

Kinesiology offers a very powerful means to re-balance ourselves by allowing us to identify and balance the underlying cause of a complaint rather than just treating or suppressing the symptoms. Kinesiology looks at the whole person in order to find out what is behind the symptoms.

A Kinesiologist uses various balancing techniques and protocols such as light touch or pressure to specific points or reflexes to re-establish balance and activate the body’s intrinsic healing process so that the body can heal itself more quickly and effectively. It does not diagnose, nor does it focus on treating symptoms.

Kinesiology is a holistic healing modality that complements professional healthcare. It can help speed up recovery and improve quality of life.


Health is not just the absence of “dis-ease” or “dis-stress” – it is consistent energy, mental clarity, ability to adjust under stress, freedom from infection, emotional stability, good physical stamina, as well as the absence of dis-ease and, an attitude to embrace negative and positive aspects of life as a whole, flexibility.

Unfortunately with the pace and demands of our modern lifestyle, we no longer give ourselves sufficient time to heal or recuperate properly from stressors.

Kinesiology can help you to release the stress, allowing your body to recuperate and to recover its natural balance. This allows for more energy and motivation to do life and a greater understanding and acceptance of yourself and others. Seeing choices and solutions where none seemed to exist before. To have more appropriate responses and coping abilities in stressful environments. But all in all, an improved quality of life.
