Kinesiology is a combination of Eastern and Western medicine to promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It originated in the 1960s and is based on the premise that the body has innate healing energy and at all times tries to heal itself, but sometimes needs some extra assistance. It also recognises that there are flows within the body that relate not only to muscles, but every tissue and organ, which can be evaluated by testing the function of muscles.

Muscle testing can identify blockages and correct them with simple acupressure and other corrections to place the body in a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by balancing its energies.

It is also useful for identifying foods or other substances, which stress or suppress the body’s natural healing ability, nutritional imbalances, clearing negative emotional patterns, stimulating the integration of muscle groups or improving mental and physical coordination.
