What Is Kinesiology?


Kinesiology (Kin-easy-ology) is a comprehensive system of health care that utilizes manual muscle monitoring feedback – otherwise known as muscle testing - to identify and correct imbalance in the whole person. Kinesiology addresses all aspects of health and wellbeing.

Kinesiology is a proven effective method that is grounded in anatomy and physiology and has it’s origins in traditional as well as contemporary medicine. It is completely natural and non invasive. Simple in it’s application, yet profound in its results.

Kinesiology offers a truly unique approach to our health and wellbeing needs. An unparalleled feature of Kinesiology is that it allows direct access to our body’s innate wisdom, whereby the cause of imbalance can be detected and our unique and priority healing needs can be established.

A key principle of Kinesiology is that we all have innate healing energy which aims always to maintain optimal health and equilibrium. Due to varying stressors however, there are often blocks to this healing capacity and the body may then require help in achieving this balance. The body has the wisdom to heal itself, and Kinesiology can access that information in order to assist the natural healing process. The answers truly lie within.

The P.K.P. Difference

The field of Kinesiology may be put into specialist categories, each with their respective methodology. Kinesiology Dynamics applies the P.K.P. (Professional Kinesiology Practice) system, as developed by I.C.P.K.P. (International College of P.K.P) P.K.P. is among the most advanced and comprehensive kinesiology practices available today, combining the most widely respected kinesiology approaches from around the world. P.K.P. incorporates the many individual streams of kinesiology into the one system, resulting in a unified approach.

Muscle Testing Explained

Kinesiology Dynamics - Muscle Testing

A muscle test can roughly be described as an information gathering tool or a communication pathway that allows a direct link between the facilitator and the body, providing specific access to the subconscious levels of the body-mind. This form of communication is known as bio-feedback. Muscle testing is therefore a natural feedback system using an indicator muscle (the primary muscle used for monitoring feedback), which supplies information via nerve pathways and the meridian system of the brain and body.

The muscle test may be considered natures ‘diagnostic tool’ by which we can access the precise information required for the balancing process.
The precision and accuracy of muscle testing ensures no guess work, no ‘professional opinions’, and no text book answers. Only knowledge from within.

Muscle testing quite simply involves a muscle – commonly a limb – comfortably positioned in either a state of extension or contraction. Slight pressure is then applied to this muscle by the practitioner and the muscle responds in one of two ways in what is termed a “lock” (muscles remains strong) or an “unlock” (muscle weakens). How the muscle responds and what the response is telling us depends entirely on the details of the session at the time.
