What is Kinesiology?

If you’ve ever caught yourself right at that moment when you’re about to self-sabotage, even when it’s something you know you’d love, then you need to know about Kinesiology.

Kinesiology from the Greek word meaning movement, and although it does involve physical muscle testing, it’s much, much more than that.

Basically, we bypass your (sometimes not so helpful) conscious brain and ask your body the questions we need answers to. Often, your subconscious is a lot more honest!

We tap into your subconscious brain and get answers about your emotional, mental, and physical body via your muscles. This allows us to skip the part where you rationalise, interrupt, and generally talk yourself out of what it is you’re really feeling. Because here’s where we can let ourselves get in our own way – we construct these blocks out of emotions we don’t want to feel, or situations we want to avoid, or feelings we simply think we can’t cope with. The answers we get through muscle testing helps us identify what those blocks are so we can move them along and take steps forward to what we truly want.

Clever, right?

Think of it like this:

Your mind is like a gorgeous trail, through an incredible forest. The thing is, if you don’t take care of it; if put the living creatures in it under duress, or freak the plants and wildlife out with some kind of random stressors, you don’t have a healthy forest. Your path can get muddy. It starts to look confusing. Or it’s overgrown with some kind of introduced species you definitely don’t want in your way.  

This causes overall dis-ease – which can then turn into emotional problems such as anxiety (what if a bear eats you?) and depression (will all the trees die? What’s the point anyway?) Then, those can turn into physical issues such as pain, ailments, illness.

The thing is, your incredible forest didn’t pop up by itself. It includes everything about you – from you. All your thoughts, experiences, memories – that time you learned that if you go to fast on a bike without your shoes on something messy might happen, the time you found if you just took a bit of a leap of faith things might turn out OK – all that lives in your forest.

Alongside that, all your belief systems – the experiences your brain took and turned into a somewhat unchangeable story – they live there too. Growing. Then, right deep down in the soil, is everything your parents, grandparents, ancestors gifted you down the genetic line. All the pain, hurt, confusion, challenges, triumphs, grit, and determination your forefathers and mothers lived their lives with. It’s a big forest and if you go wandering about it in yourself you’re likely to get a bit frustrated and lost.

A Kinesiologist, however, is a bit like an explorer with the ultimate map. Because we can get inside all that growth and find what we’re looking for – speak to your ultimate nature – and uncover what’s growing around in there. We can ask it questions, discover big old tap roots into old, outdated belief systems, and get overall answers. We ask your subconscious mind, and it responds, via the electrical connection between it and your muscles.

It really is the easiest way to get real answers to the questions you need to focus on. It simply and gently uncovers and releases all the ‘stuff’. It moves those blocks out of your way with a nod and an acknowledgement you don’t need them anymore. It’s non-invasive and surprisingly refreshing. It gets you out of your own way.
