What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a combination of western techniques and eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health. Kinesiology combines the goals you want to achieve in life and your picture of health to discover any sabotages, beliefs and patterns that are stopping you from achieving your true potential.

‘A fundamental premise of Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is doing its best to care for itself, but sometimes needs assistance to achieve this state.’

Kinesiology recognises that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ to make the body a living, feeling being. When the body is under stress, it will block a degree of energy flow in certain parts of the body thereby blocking the body’s natural healing process. Kinesiology helps to identify and correct these blockages allowing the energy to flow freely once again.

Energy blockages can affect all areas of your life on a physical, mental/emotional and biochemical level. When all three sides are in balance, optimum health and your highest potential can be attained. However, if one side has a blockage it causes the triangle to become unbalanced and in turn the other sides of the triangle and the other aspects of your health and well-being are also affected.

For example, an emotional stress causes an emotional blockage, this in turn affects us physically (we hunch our shoulders and clench our jaw) and biochemically (we release higher levels of cortisol into our system and prepare for flight or fight). Over time, imbalances in any side of the triangle manifests as a lack of energy, a decline in health and well-being and can hinder your ability to reach your goals and your true potential.

What happens at a Session?

A case history is taken and reasons and/or goals are identified. The client remains fully clothed throughout and can choose to sit, stand or lie down for the session. During the session, gentle muscle testing is used to identify any blockages and imbalances in the body (ie. the body’s priority healing needs).

Based on the traditional Chinese medicine concept of internal energy or Chi, muscle testing involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a muscle (often as simple as applying slight pressure to the forearm). An unlocking muscle test indicates a disturbed energy flow or imbalance – be it physical, mental/emotional or biochemical. This gives the Kinesiologist a physical sign that the body is responding to specific stimuli (e.g. thought of a specific emotion). The muscle can now be used to search for stresses and corrections needed to balance the body.

Kinesiology muscle testing allows you to empower yourself and change how you relate to your past, present & future.

Kinesiology can assist with many issues including:

General health & well being, Postural Imbalances, Anti-Aging, Nutritional Deficiencies, Stress, Shifting old patterns, Lack of Energy, Self Confidence, Relationship issues as well as Worry, Fear & Grief.

However, holistic kinesiology in my experience is very effective for a wide range of conditions, particularly chronic pain, headaches, migraines, depression, learning difficulties (including attention deficit syndrome), back pain, chronic fatigue, bed wetting, sleep difficulties, asthma, and blood sugar disturbances. It can also help with relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, fears, phobias, allergic reactions, and setting and achieving goals.

Shesaid Says:

Have you ever done something that you feel very, sceptical about but you do it anyway? Well that was me walking into my first kinesiology session with Louise Restuccia. My session was over 2 hours long and it almost blew my mind how powerful it was…Needless to say I did not have a life threatening illness or severe depression or mental issues that I needed dealing with but I was definitely at a cross road in my life with certain decisions about my life and the future to be weighed up. My kinesiology session with Louise was intensely personal but also deeply rewarding and uplifting. Louise seemed to be able “unlock” some blockages in me that were holding me back and help me identify with some of the issues I have been internally grappling with lately about which direction to take my career, family and friends. She uncovered things I had buried very deeply and she gently encouraged me to examine these feelings and either embrace them or iradicate them from my mind in a very cleansing and powerful way.

I felt very relaxed afterwards and have seen a noticeable difference in my outlook on life and especially my own opinion of myself and what I can achieve and want to aspire to achieve. Kinesiology could easily be dismissed as hocus pocus or too alternative for many people but I challenge you to open your mind and visit a qualified Kinesiologist if you feel you are not living up to your potential or are having problems that you can’t seem to overcome. I don’t know how it works but I just know it worked for me and I will be going back for more when I feel the need for more help and strengthening from kinesiology and Louise!
