Kinesiology is a deep but gentle holistic therapy, combining western techniques with the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. Its distinguishing tool is muscle testing; a method of tapping into the body’s knowledge to identify the underlying causes of health problems, and to guide the therapeutic process.
How does Kinesiology work?
All sessions are guided by the muscle testing. By applying pressure to an arm or leg, the practitioner can get feedback from the client’s body about the energetic state of it. Various “corrections” can then be used to rebalance this. Any energetic blockages can cause stress, pain and disease. By removing these blockages and rebalancing the energy, clients find many symptoms disappear or reduce and they have an improved sense of wellbeing.
The energy imbalances are treated by a series of “corrections”. Some come from the Traditional Chinese Medicine system, using the 5 elements and the meridians. Others use flower essences, the most famous being the Bach Flower Remedies. Some provide emotional awareness. Others use movement as a way of correcting the imbalance or suggest dietary changes. Each kinesiologist has their own set that they’ve gained from the training they’ve done and will continue to add to them.
Kinesiology can help with just about anything, as any disease or pain has an energetic imprint on the body and mind.
We offer two different types of kinesiology here at The Wellbeing Centre: 3-in-1 Concepts Kinesiology with Ros Kitson and Systematic or Applied Kinesiology with Helen Peedell.
3-in-1 Concepts Kinesiology
3-in-1 Concepts Kinesiology works on defusing emotional stress. Stress is behind many of our problems (physical and emotional) and can lead us to feel disempowered in our lives. Returning to a position where we feel we have choice again, can enable us to improve and even transform our lives.
3-in-1 Concepts Kinesiology is particularly appropriate to helping stress, trauma, anxiety or any other emotional problem. It can help us change our belief systems which are no longer serving us and those we’ve inherited from our parents and teachers, which were never our higher truth in the first place. By doing this, it can help us to empower our lives and make lasting changes. Many physical symptoms have an emotional element to them, particularly the ones which haven’t healed in a timely manner. Therefore this therapy can also help with many physical symptoms too.
It is a gentle therapy, although it can also be very deep. However the muscle testing process ensures that the therapy is guided by the client and will only progress at a speed they are comfortable with.

Systematic or Applied Kinesiology
Applied Kinesiology is a system which evaluates the structural, chemical and mental aspects of the body. It employs muscle testing with other standard methods of diagnosis. Nutrition, manipulation, diet, acupressure, exercise and client education are used therapeutically to help restore balance and maintain wellbeing throughout a life.
Kinesiology is a system of natural health care which arims to create and maintain health and wellbeing and is primarily preventative. It is truly holistic working with all aspects of the person: structural and postural, chemical and nutritional, mental and emotional. It combines muscle testing, a range of energy balancing techniques and nutrition to re-educate the body/mind to function appropriately and bring all aspects into balance and harmony.
