Why do I need Kinesiology?

Kinesiology helps to restore health by balancing the body physically, mentally and emotionally.

So physically it can help with aches and pains. By circuit locating muscles which are reactive. A reactive muscle is a muscle behaving too strong (bully) while other muscles are switched off and not doing their job at all. When this situation is reversed it restores normal muscle tone. Trigger points also can be helped as well by targeting specific lympatic flow assisting knots to be released usually without the pain of deep tissue massage.

Mentaly, Kinesiology can help with anxiety, addictions, depression, obsessions and phobias.

On an emotionally level Kinesiology can help devellop self confidence, goal setting, strong relationships, self empowerment, creativity,  or improve work, sports, or school performance.

The mind body connection is amazing and you can start feeling empowereded by seeking out what information your body has to share with you.

I am Passionate about health, healing and creativeness in in all aspects of my business. Since 2005 when I qualified as a Remedial Massage Therapist I have been actively learning and discovering new ways to advance my healing skills. I am fascinated by the process of Kinesiloogy and believe there is so much more to health and living a healthy life that can not be accessed through any other means. I find Kinesiology a valuable tool to uncover the innate healing available to us.

This same wonder draws me into the world of art and colour. The main style I use in art is Expressionism and the media I use vary from Resin, Acrylic and Mosaic . I am drawn to vibrant colours and if I can make something shiny, glowing or transparent this adds extra interest to the piece.

Today is International Women’s Day

As women taking control and learning to design a life where we naturally attract positive relationships, perceiving our own value and being true to our own wisdom.  Kinesiology can help to improve overall wellness, confidence and happiness today and every day.

Acting with self esteem in both our private and professional roles and not allowing fear to hold back from the life we want for ourselves.

Kinesiology helps to dissolve negative self talk by releasing what is necessary for happiness.

I release the need for approval from others.

Emotional Vs Physical Health

When considering emotional wellness it isn’t very different than physical health.

In kinesiology I use a 5 element emotion chart which finds it roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In TCM they have an emotion for each of the bodies organs for example the liver corresponds to the emotion anger and it’s said that too much built up anger can affect the healthy functioning of the liver. While it’s said that grief affects the lungs. Have you ever felt sick to the stomach with worry or weak at the knees, knees can represent pride and ego , the inability to bend and can often be linked with unbalanced kidney energy.

Emotions affect our thoughts, feeling and beliefs and Kinesiology borrows that idea from TCM and uses the emotion to get to the core of issues.

Think less Feel More

Think less and feel more .  Your mind may be working overtime needlessly.

In life we are always attracting experiences into our life both positive and negative. The key is to always keep moving,  the best you can, towards positive experiences .

Kinesiology allows you to achieve congruency between mind and body and by making statements that your body is congruent with helps you bring this experience into your life.

Here is a list of possible goal balances.

 

Self Acceptance

Relationships

Health

I focus my energies on regaining my health

Career

I am open to new career possibilities

Addictions

I choose to release all addictions which are a substitute for self love

Personal power

Grounding

I make the commitment to myself to stay grounded at all times.

Weight

Bullying at School

With school back this week I think it might be interesting to discuss just how kinesiology can help your child feel more happy and confidant at school.

It is common for children to have problems with other children at school, they may feel anxious at school or about going to school. They may have problems with other individuals and feel powerless to speak or to be themselves.

Individual circumstances are all different but generally a good place to start is a goal balance around a positive affirmation such as

“ I am respected by my school friends”

Kinesiology is a tool to build mind body connection using gentle non invasive techniques with the aim to make a weakened muscle around this statement (perhaps not a statement they agree with) to a strong muscle ( a statement they do agree with) therefore empowering the child in the situation to gain control over a worrying situation previously out of their control.

Children of all ages can be helped by these simple techniques as well as teenagers and adults .

General Adaption Syndrome (GAS)

I don’t think you can under rate the stress we cope with on a daily basis with causing many of the illnesses we cope with in our lives. In Kinesioology we learn about the General Adaption Syndrome (GAS) the predicable nature of long term and short term stress.  Dr Hans Selye (1907-1982) wrote about stress as a major cause of disease and wrote about the 3 stages the body goes through to adapt.

Alarm – sympathetic nervous system fight or flight, adrenal insufficiency.

Resistance – Body compensates for stress forming a holding pattern retaining stress within.

Exhaustion – the stress continues beyond the bodies capacity to cope and illness forms.

‘’Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older” Hans Selye MD PHD

In kinesiology I use an emotion from the 5 element chart along with a clear affirmation or statement of what it is you hope to achieve by clearing issues. So with every balance the body has a little bit less stress. Bring back the balance into your life.

Both Kinesiology and Remedial Massage can help you to feel like you again.
