Kinesiology is a holistic therapy that works on every aspect of health – balancing the person so that you are physically, mentally and emotionally in equilibrium.
It uses gentle muscle testing techniques to monitor the flow of energy in the body. They can then identify factors which may be disrupting the natural flow and causing health problems. Physical problems, illnesses, allergies and infertility may have a deeper lying mental/emotional root, and Kinesiology is helpful to get to the root of the problem, not just working on the symptoms. Kinesiology is also a great way of dealing with depression, anxiety, anger/aggression, trauma, fears/phobias, addictions and feelings of low-self esteem etc. It is also a valuable tool working with children with dyslexia, ADHD, speech problems, concentration, low muscle tone and identifying food allergies.

“What is Biokinetics?”
Biokinetics comes from the word BIO, which means LIFE, and KINETICS, which is derived from MOVEMENT, hence Biokinetics can be interpreted as Life through Movement or the Science of Human Movement
