Kinesiology as we use it today was developed by Chiropractor George Goodheart in 1964 from osteopathic techniques in the 1920s.  Kinesiology means `study of movement`.  Working with Chinese medical theory, Goodhart and colleagues discovered links between muscle response, meridian energy and related organs. They linked these with Chapman’s neurolymphatic massage points and Bennet’s neurovascular holding points. Further research identified nutrients which would support rebalancing of the various systems and foods which could affect these circuits in a negative way. Emotional associations which contributed or resulted in imbalance and structural distortions were also identified and corrected.


Kinesiology Muscle response testing give your body a “voice”.  When we test a muscle, it enables your body to tell me what your imbalances are.  It does this by changing a muscle response.  Whenever we move an arm or a limb, there is a message from the brain, down the spinal cord, to the muscle, to tell it to move and contract, and then there is a message back again.


What has been found is that when you are performing this test that energy changes - anything that the body likes or doesn’t like such as a food, supplement, herb, flower essence, sound, thought, will reflect in a change of muscle response – a muscle “locking” or “unlocking”.  Kinesiology Muscle Response Testing enables us to identify what is going on in the body, what it likes or doesn’t like, what is the best way of resolving problems in the body, which is totally unique to you. 


I will ask you to lie down on the therapy couch and I will put your arms and legs in certain positions.  You simply match my gentle pressure – i.e., my hand won’t move, and your arm / leg won’t move, we will be matching each other’s pressure. 

I lightly touch areas on the body and if required gentle massage techniques on lymphatic reflex points, spinal reflex points, alarm points, acupuncture points, meridians, the jaw, head etc.  TEST, DETECT, BALANCE.

When the triangle is equilateral, the person is in a state of optimal life-force and health, but no one really achieves this perfection as the body in its wonderfully adaptive way compensates and compromises in order to survive in this world of challenges.  These “compensations” are called “symptoms” in Western Medicine.
