Kinesiology is a healing modality that looks at the body as a whole. That includes not only your physical body but also your mental, emotional and spiritual bodies as well. Through gentle muscle monitoring a kinesiologist can determine where there are any stresses in your life, where it is affecting you in your body and how you can reduce or eliminate them.
Stress and tension affects almost everyone living in Western society.
Trying to achieve the optimal work / life balance seems to be elusive to most and the negative impact of this is that we become more reactive and emotional. This causes stress in our lives and in our bodies which then causes physical pain by creating tension in our muscles. We stop sleeping well, we can’t think straight and the stress and anxiety intensify. This can snow ball out of control until we do something about it.
This is where a kinesiologist can help. During a session they will ask you to lie down on a comfortable table, use an arm muscle as an indicator and start checking it’s response to certain questions. As the body wants to be in balance, once the stress is identified the brain becomes aware of the imbalance and wants to return your mind, body and spirit to homeostasis.
There are many tools are kinesiologist can use to help alleviate the stress and anxiety you are holding and here are a few:
Applying pressure or rubbing a point on the body while discussing an emotion;
There are many more tools then those listed above and some are unique to the practitioner and their knowledge base so each kinesiologist and every each session can be quite different.
What’s important to realise is that stress and anxiety can be alleviated. It does not have to become your normal everyday existence. But if you truly want to let it all go you do need to do the work and a kinesiologist can help you find the best way for you to do that. Once you have released all the stress and tension it can be quite empowering to feel the difference in your attitude to life and everything around you. Things seem brighter, easier and more fun. And let’s face it, isn’t that how we would all like our lives to be? So next time you are feeling stressed or anxious, why not give a Kinesiologist a go!
