WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY?
Kinesiology is a global human approach which is the result of the convergence between:
traditional Chinese energetics
and the recent discoveries in neuroscience.
Kinesiology is a comprehensive approach covering several disciplines, which have muscle testing in common.
The purpose of which is to support everyone in achieving a better mental, emotional, physical and energetic balance.
Kinesiology gives the keys to the person to move forward and change by helping to identify the cause(s) of his/her difficulties, which are sources of physical and / or psychic tensions, and then by releasing the weight of the emotional charges associated with appropriate balances.
Physical & psychic tension
IMBALANCE IN THE BODY
IDENTIFICATION of the imbalance by a muscle test
RELEASE of emotional charges linked to imbalance
Appropriate BALANCE accompanied by physical anchoring

Dr. Goodheart, a chiropractor, developed a system called "Applied Kinesiology" from the discoveries of the Western medicine and the principles of traditional Chinese medicine in the 60s in the United States. This system is reserved for medical professionals.
John Thie, also a chiropractor, simplifies and popularizes some of these discoveries: thus was created the "Touch for Health" based on manual muscle tests to assess muscle tone. This technic serves as the basis for most other kinesiology's branches.
Kinesiology uses the muscle test as a bio-feedback instrument that allows us to know the physiological response of our body to a physical, emotional, mental, nutritional stimulus, etc.
Through the muscle test, the kinesiologist doesn't communicate with the conscious mind but with the consciousness of the body and its cellular memory. During a Kinesiology session, the kinesiologist uses muscle tests to:
highlight energy imbalances and stresses
specify its nature and origin as well as the emotional and mental states associated with them
determine the nature of the corrections
verify the effectiveness of these corrections
The goal of Kinesiology is to deactivate physical or emotional blockages to allow the person to use his/her full potential.
When to see a kinesiologist ?
Some concrete examples :
Addictions and phobias
Muscle pain and tensions
Learning difficulties at school
A kinesiologist have to be certified
Kinesiology cannot be improvised. To become a kinesiologist and obtain a certificate, you need a minimum of 700 hours of professional training, provided by a school recognized by the International Kinesiology College (such as the IBK where I trained).
My career path
The progress of a Kinesiology session :
A Kinesiology session takes place in 5 steps :
the kinesiologist and the client take a time to determine the session's objective based on the priority needs
the kinesiologist identifies imbalances, their nature, their origin and the associated mental and emotional loads
the kinesiologist identifies the appropriate balances
the kinesiologist checks the effectiveness of these balances and explains them to the client
in agreement with the client, a work of growth can be proposed.
