Kinesiology at Twickenham therapy clinic
Kinesiology is a practice used to relieve physical and mental strain or stress.
It is a holistic approach which considers the entire person, as opposed to
diagnosing a single symptom or one point of issue. Muscle testing, or muscle
monitoring, is a key tool used in kinesiology and is present in all variations
of the practice.
This practice is kinesiology’s foremost diagnostic
tool and involves applying pressure to contracted muscles to gauge responses.
Patient treatment is determined from this practice and will involve a variety
of remedies, taking into account all aspects of the patient mentally and physically,
which is why no one treatment will look the same.
Kinesiology was originally developed in the early 1960s by a chiropractor,
Dr George Goodheart DC, who realised that chiropractic practices were not
enough to fully relieve discomfort in physically disabled patients.
a link between Chinese meridians and holistic practices, and the human body,
noting that they had a real and great impact on muscle groups, organs and
glands. Today it takes many different forms globally but remains, fundamentally,
a practice in full-body health.

What to expect during treatment
In your first session, your practitioner will aim to get to know you, often
through a series of questions to find out what your main concerns are and
how you would like the treatment to help. This will include compiling a
personal history for you and compiling details about your emotional wellbeing,
lifestyle and diet.
Muscle testing is at the forefront of any kinesiology session. This is
the process of gauging a response from a contracted muscle. To do this,
your practitioner will place your limb in a position which contracts the
muscle, from her pressure is applied to contracted muscles. The muscle’s
response, whether it unlocks or remains contracted, determines imbalances
in energy pathways to be corrected.
Corrections are made in a variety of ways, which is why kinesiology sessions
look different depending on the patient. All methods are non-invasive and
range from a gentle massage or acupuncture to the use of magnets or the
power of thought. You might also discuss homoeopathic remedies or nutritional
changes to take home with you.
