Kinesiology. The Triangle of Health

I have been so fortunate to have the privilege to discover and learn such a healing modality as Kinesiology. When I meet most people they are unsure of what it is about and how it all works. This blog is to explain just that. I hope you enjoy it and I have answered some of your questions.

Kinesiology was first discovered by Dr George Goodhart in 1964 . He was a Chiropractor In the late 1960's. He developed a new concept, in which he began to use muscle testing to evaluate muscle function, posture and general body imbalances. He also discovered corrective measures for the evaluated dysfunctions, which led him to formulate what he called "Applied Kinesiology". It was the study of how the body works, applying results against the traditional Chinese Medicine philosophies of Acupuncture and using "muscle testing" as a feedback process. In the early 1970's another Chiropractor from California, Dr John Thie DC, met Dr Goodheart and studied with him in a small research group. Dr. John Thie had wonderful humanitarian insights and developed a simple, safe and very effective system for the lay-person, he called it "TOUCH FOR HEALTH". Dr Thie began teaching this new "self-help program" to his patients. Many people from all over America came to study with Dr Thie and soon word had spread to Great Britain and other countries around the world. Dr Bruce Dew, a medical doctor was one of the students who studied touch for health. He had great interest in this modality and decided to carry out further research and studies in this area. He then went on to create PKP Kinesiology. He developed a college in New Zeland and now people all around the world can learn this powerful modality. Dr Bruce Dew explanation of Pkp is as follows:

"Kinesiology is the most holistic of all the natural therapies and recognises the importance of body, mind and spirit in health and healing. Kinesiology enables people to detect and correct imbalances that relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, minor injuries, and other issues they meet in their daily life. A non-invasive method, Kinesiology is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology and uses muscles as monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. A fundamental premise of kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is always doing its best to care for itself, but sometimes needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this care. Kinesiology recognises the flows of energy within the body not only relate to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that make the body a living, feeling being. These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body’s overall state of structural, chemical, or emotional balance. In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook. Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms and does not treat named diseases nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with imbalances in the body’s energy. In this respect, kinesiology has close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow. Where, as the result of injury, emotional trauma, nutritional or other unresolved stress, the energy flow is interrupted, the whole body is affected. The exact nature of blockage in the energy flow can be more closely identified by muscle testing. Acupressure massage, light touch and other simple correction skills are used to restore muscle balance, which has a flow-on effect into total body energy. Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice - in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life generally"

PKP kinesiology takes the guess work out of what your body truly needs to thrive not just survive. Who wouldn't want to be performing their best and feeling 100%.

What I love about PKP Kinesiology is that it is very specific and we use finger mode techniques which is asking the bodys inate intelligence what it would like. It bypasses the conscious mind and works on a subconscious level. If you are ready for change you are ready for Kinesiology. You won't look back!
