What is Kinesiology?
A Holistic Complementary Therapy using Gentle Manual Muscle Testing
Systematic Kinesiology was discovered by Dr George Goodheart in the 1960s. It is a totally holistic therapy using muscle testing to gain access to the body’s bio-feedback mechanism for information about the client. The basic tool within Kinesiology is the muscle test which is the ability to hold a muscle against light pressure. Within kinesiology, testing a range of muscles indicates areas which need focus. If a muscle tests "spongy" it gives an indication of how to proceed. Whenever a relevant factor is introduced, the muscle response changes, a bit like a switch.
Kinesiology supports you through a range of conditions
|"I had been in and out of hospital for months with stomach and back pains, the doctors and surgeons couldnt find out what was wrong with me. I came across Linda's website and thought I would give kinesiology a go! Linda helped to ease the pains and after each session I felt stronger, happier and more positive. I tell everyone I see about Linda and the amazing effect kinesiology had" |

Individual & YOUnique Kinesiology Treatments
The kinesiology session and testing is carried out fully clothed laying down on a comfortable couch. This in itself is very calming. There will be a series of kinesiology muscle tests against light pressure on the arms and legs and we can then introduce different options to see what changes the muscle response. The options may be lymphatic massage, flower remedies, nutritional supplements or energy work. Also, I am able to integrate techniques from reflexology, retained primitive reflexes, low level laser work and other therapies such as EFT (emotional freedom technique) to help make the treatment unique to your needs. We can also devise together a procedural plan for potential lifestyle changes which will help you achieve the change you desire.My goal is to make Kinesiology a household name and to make
Systematic Kinesiology a discipline that EVERYONE wants to learn
It is difficult to say how many sessions will be required – the beauty of humanity is that we are all different..! The lovely thing about kinesiology is that it treats you as YOU. The average is at least 3 and this could be more depending on the severity of your condition, what lifestyle changes you are prepared to make, how long you have had symptoms and how many “layers” you are willing to unravel but there is absolutely no pressure to discuss anything you dont want to.
Following a session, it is "normal" to feel a number of things:
* slight light-headedness
I allow time for you to sit, drink a glass of water and "come-to" before jumping up, getting dressed and leaving. All my clients leave a treatment feeling better after kinesiology than when they came in. Nobody leaves before feeling they are ready to. See my testimonials here

This may be stress to the body in the form of sensitive foods, poor nutrition, erratic eating habits, dehydration. Kinesiology will test to see what will help the body - either eliminating certain foods for a short while or supplementing with good quality nutrition
Physical / Structural
Kinesiologists will not manipulate the body in the way a Chiropractor or Osteopath would. Instead they use lymphatic massage and light contact or low level laser light on neuro-vascular points or cranium to relieve pain and tension in joints
This element may indicate the need for more water, holding of meridien energy interchange points or meridien work. It can also involve retained Primitive Reflexes
Self Help Tools to Take Home I encourage clients to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing to ensure that the benefits of the kinesiology sessions are magnified and I will make suggested recommendations for lifestyle changes which, if the clients take up, will speed their recovery. I can also give specific exercises relevant where there are retained primitive reflexes that have not been fully integrated
