What Is Kinesiology


A recent survey conducted by the Australian Psychological Society found that:

“The majority of Australians feel that stress impacts their physical health (72%) and mental health (64%) but very few reported seeking professional help.”

Stress-related illness has indeed become a silent “pandemic” and this is where Kinesiology aims to help.



Don’t worry, even though Kinesiology has been around for almost 100 years, we get this question all the time!  

Stress can manifest in all systems of the body.. perhaps creating digestive system issues, musculoskeletal aches and pains, hormonal imbalances, anxiety or depression, “brain fog” or just generally knowing we don’t “feel right”.

Energetic Kinesiology incorporates Eastern science, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western techniques to create a bio-feedback system through muscle monitoring, to then help the client release stress held in the body and mind – neurologically and physiologically.



During a session, the client mostly lays down on a massage table while the Kinesiologist monitors gentle muscle resistance when stressors are activated, via the acupressure points and discussion. 

The muscle monitoring is not in relation to strength of the muscle – but rather the Kinesiologist is trained to notice the subtle variances in resistance, due to the neurological bio-feedback

This allows the practitioner to acquire information from the body about where – and often why – the stress is present.

Kinesiology techniques then help stimulate the body’s innate healing abilities and responses, assisting in relieving the stressors, bringing the individual back towards homeostasis and away from stress and dis-ease. 

These will include a variety of therapies such as: Acupressure / pressure point stimulation incorporating the Chinese Meridians; Bach, Dessert and Bush Flower essence remedies; the use of Sound frequency; Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular stimulation; and a professional, confidential and nurturing space for clients to unburden and maximise their potential for total wellness.

During Kinesiology balances, we aim to bring the client out of the “flight or flight” Stress Response, and instead activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System – the “rest and digest” state. 

This is when the body can tap into its innate healing capabilities; where for example the Immune system, Digestive System and Hormones can function more optimally and find balance again. 

When these systems are functioning well, we feel well, and when our health and wellbeing improve, profound changes can be experienced in all aspects of life – mentally, physically and emotionally.
