What actually is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the science of muscle testing to find imbalances in the body’s energy systems. Pronounced Kin-easy-ology it is one of the most holistic therapies available to you today. It is a non-invasive simple technique that involves you placing your arm and leg muscles in specific positions while gentle pressure is applied to them. From the results of these muscle tests, the cause of your imbalance can be found. There are many different branches of Kinesiology and it can be quite confusing to the lay person when you first start researching which type you would like to experience. The branch I practice is Progressive Kinesiology which I co-founded in the United Kingdom in 2000, and I have written 2 books on the subject to help spread the word of this awesome modality: Your Body Has The Answer and Your Child’s Body Has The Answer – self help guides to healing your body using simple kinesiology techniques.

As an holistic approach, Progressive Kinesiology gives equal attention to the emotional, nutritional, physical and energetic needs of a client. It is different to some other branches of kinesiology, which may focus on only one of these areas.

Emotional/ Mental factors include our emotions, thoughts, beliefs and attitudes about the past, present or future.  These can cause a range of problems including stress, insomnia, addictions, phobias and anxiety attacks.  In dealing with health problems, it is often necessary to identify any emotional factors involved. This is done by explaining the mind-body connection, using the Five Element emotions and the Behavioural barometer.  Emotions are then supported using flower essences, affirmations, counselling skills and specific Kinesiology techniques. Emotional Freedom Technique and Neuro Linguistic Programming methods are also recommended where appropriate.

Nutritional/Chemical factors include sensitivity reactions, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, blood sugar imbalances and toxicity.  All of these can cause symptoms such as skin conditions, headaches, IBS and dizziness. I can test for sensitivities to over a 1000 different substances.

Physical factors include imbalances in the muscles, joints and bones.  These can cause poor posture and aches and pains.  Kinesiology tests the major muscles to identify weak or tight muscles and for misalignments of the cranium, spine and pelvis.  I use reflex points to stimulate lymph and blood to the area that will support your condition. I am also qualified in Cranio-sacral therapy techniques to help headaches and back pain.

Energy/Vibrational factors are problems that occur when energy is not flowing in harmony around the body.  Kinesiology tests for over and under energy in all circuits, left and right brain integration, ionisation, aura balancing, centring and polarity switching. I can test and balance the relevant chakras and meridians that will help your condition.

All of these factors will contribute to disease and any combination of factors may be contributing at one time. The beauty of Kinesiology is that you can find which of these factors and in what order of importance, is making you ill.  As Progressive Kinesiology treats the individual rather than the presenting symptom, a wide variety of ailments can be helped. The treatment is suitable for all ages and children are welcome.

I am highly experienced in treating clients suffering with:

  • Digestive problems
  • Aches in muscles and joints
  • Skin complaints
  • Hormonal symptoms
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Emotional trauma and Stress
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Addictions
  • Weight and Body image issues

Please feel free to contact us about your specific ailment and we can explain how Progressive Kinesiology can help. Kinesiology does not take the place of conventional medicine.  Kinesiology advocates a self-responsibility model of healing which requires your participation and involvement. You are the healer of yourself, guided and supported by me as the practitioner. Hence “Your Body Has The Answer!”

Testimonials from people who have experienced Kinesiology with me:

“Thank you again for all the support you have given me over the last few weeks.  I feel really good emotionally and confident about my direction and also feel that I am finally able to speak my truth about what I would like for the future and also to let go and move on from the past. I am so honoured to have worked with you, you are a true inspiration.”

“Thanks to you our little man (age 11 months) is happy and healthy and his skin rash cleared up in no time after just one treatment!  Any time you would like a testimonial I would be all too happy to share our success story. You are an amazing practitioner with a wonderful gift and your generosity and care meant so much to us. I have told many others of our story and have passed on your details.”
Ilene Gardner

Elizabeth you are a genius! I’d never had a kinesiology treatment before and I can’t believe how great I feel! The pain that’s been in my side for 20 years (yes 20 years!) has finally, after only one session with you, gone! I’m sleeping better, feeling better and I’m just BETTER! Thank you so much”
Jeanne Trelor

“You have helped us both so much – words can’t express… I am forever grateful that we met you. The way you helped my son was beyond words – as a mother I couldn’t think of a gentler, more accurate method of dealing with his problems. I thought long and hard about counsellors and psychologists and found those options too ‘hard/brutal almost’ for my child. My child was thrilled after his visit today – some quotes from him follow: ‘How did she know?, wasn’t it amazing,’ ‘I can’t wait to see Elizabeth again’,  ‘She’s fantastic’ (about half a dozen times now), ‘Wow! Elizabeth is the best Kinesiologist in the world!’, ‘I want to be a Kinesiologist when I grow up.’ He is right! You were totally spot on today.  I am so glad we found you and you helped us so much… Eternally grateful!”
