What to expect from your session
Many people have no idea what to expect from a Kinesiology session. They enter an unknown realm expecting everything from a massage to tarot cards. Like any practitioner, every Kinesiologist works a little differently according to their training and this is the beauty of the practice, that each session is tailored to the individual and different individuals will have an affinity with different Kinesiologists.
Kinesiology as a protocol introduces a completely different way of thinking about our maladies, but ultimately the result is that a Kinesiologist will use the client’s body as a feedback mechanism to identify stressors and find the information that’s inhibiting recuperation.
The way I work, is according to my training through www.asksa.com (the regulatory body for Kinesiologists in South Africa) and a session with me will always start with a full history of both emotional and physical events, as well as dietary and supplementation questions and a discussion about the reason for the visit. This is followed by muscle testing once we begin our session and after this we are guided by the neurology through the muscle response. Information emerging in a session is often seemingly unrelated to the focus or reason for the visit, but what we need to remember, is that we require all elements of our makeup (mental, emotional and physical) to work together to keep us alive, so when we are presenting with a symptom, the cause may well have its roots elsewhere, It is this that is the biggest mind shift that is so completely different from the traditional allopathic approach.
A bit about the protocols I follow;
- Touch for Health:
This is the internationally recognized kinesiology protocol that is the basis for all the other kinesiology work we see today. It was developed & founded in America in 1970 by Dr John Thie and is a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine principles like acupuncture/acupressure and recent Western developments. It explores the link between certain muscles with specific organ systems, particular energy meridians, and parts of the lymphatic and vascular systems and aims at balancing different aspects of life to improve health and increase energy and vitality.
- Neural Organisational Technique
In short – the aim is here, is to rewire or reset the nervous system – to enable the “ecosystem”, that is all our parts, to work together as they should. Much of this work is done on the head and the cranials, as the immune system, which is controlled by the limbic system, keeps the other survival systems (circulatory, endocrine, reproductive and digestive systems), in balance. Our health depends on how well these systems are maintained and their ability to receive, process and respond to sensory information in a constantly changing environment of both internal and external stressors. This protocol works by ensuring that these systems work together to maintain functional integrity, considering these systems and sub systems and how they reciprocate with each other in a priority basis.
- Emotional kinesiology;
This protocol gathers information relative to a stressor or suppression in present time and then backtracks to the age of cause to find out where or what created the suppression in the first place. The age of cause is always a specific event or situation and once found, information is gathered in that time frame and then balanced
- Neuro training;
Neurotraining is a protocol that identifies defence, distress, patterns or habits, as well as survival reactions that are not working for the client. Once these largely unconscious responses have been identified, the neurology is retrained to respond appropriately.
