Holistic Kinesiology uses a unique mix of complementary therapies and muscle monitoring to release physical, mental and emotional stress. Because of its holistic approach, Kinesiology can help all areas of health and wellbeing, for example:
- Chronic Illness
- Learning Difficulties
Holistic Kinesiologists have training in a wide range of complementary therapies, including acupressure, nutrition, chiropractic techniques, blood and lymph reflexes, various forms of counselling, colour therapy, flower essences, chakra healing and homeopathy; therefore they can devise a treatment that is specific to you.
What is unique to Kinesiology is the use of muscle monitoring, which is simply testing a muscles resistance. The clarity of response provides the kinesiologist with information about what is going on within your body, mind and spirit.
What is involved in a Kinesiology session?
In your first session Emma will begin by taking a Medical & Lifestyle history. Then by incorporating a mixture of muscle monitoring and counselling, Emma will work with you to treat your presenting issue using the broad range of techniques she is trained in.
At the end of a session you will most likely get some homework, such as a positive affirmation, a nutritional supplement, a flower remedy or a homeopathic remedy; all of which are designed to keep you feeling wonderful long after leaving the clinic.
The fact is that no two kinesiology sessions are alike, so there is no substitute for trying it yourself!
How many sessions do I need to have?
I like to commonly work with someone for 4-5 sessions, spacing a month apart, as this allows me to get to the true cause of the presenting issue and help you to move on effectively with new learnt skills. However, as each person is unique you may need more or fewer sessions.
Frequently asked questions
Where did Kinesiology originate from?
The first use of muscle monitoring which led to the development of Kinesiology was by George Goodheart (a Chiropractor). Kinesiology was first introduced to the public by John Thie who developed ‘Touch for Health’.
Since the early 1980’s many different Kinesiology disciplines have been written. It wasn’t until 1995 that the different courses that existed have been put together in a coherent manner and this led to the establishment of the Kinesiology House in Melbourne (Australia) that first offered a government accredited diploma in Kinesiology. The College of Complementary Medicine in Sydney has offered International and Australian government accredited courses since 2002.
What is the power of learning about ourselves?
Learning about yourself is learning to accept yourself- all parts, including those parts which are vulnerable to the judgements of the world. We all have these vulnerabilities.
The beautiful Brene Brown has done a wonderful presentation on the Power Of Vulnerability and why it is our ability to empathize, belong, love is what we are all searching for underneath.
