Systematic Kinesiology, which is also known as human kinetics combines modern western techniques with ancient Chinese medicine to form a natural holistic healthcare system.  This system detects emotional, chemical and physicaKinesiology | The Wellness Directory NZl disparity by use of muscle testing.  Balance is re-established, by stimulating certain points on the body.

The principle of kinesiology is the use of pressure points on the body is successful as the flow of blood to the muscles is stimulated.  Furthermore the supply of lymph, which is a watery fluid that moves toxins away from the tissues is also supported and generated.  Like acupuncture, it is believed that there is an unseen flow of energy running through the body.  When this path of energy is disrupted or blocked, due to illness or stress, the body becomes weak due to the shortage of ‘energy’ production.

Testing muscle strength reveals information about the flow of energy and helps to access the client’s general wellbeing.  Moreover kinesiology can be utilized as a preventative therapy as the therapist can detect any unseen imbalance and resolve any underlying issues before they become a problem.  This could be seen in an individual who is consistently fatigued and their condition is also compromised due to slow or poor blood circulation.  A kinesiologist can treat this condition by stimulating the flow of lymph and blood within the body by massaging pressure points. The exact treatment required for balancing the body will largely depend on the feedback supplied by the muscle test.

Your Kinesiologist will employ muscle testing to identify problem areas.  In order to assess muscle movement and response, the therapist will apply pressure to a clenched muscle whilst you resist the force.  The practitioner during testing will be looking to identify a lack of nutrition or energy or a physical disorder that could be at the foundation of the problem, once the problem area has been discovered, the blood flow to the muscles and the stimulation of lymph secretion can then be encouraged through gentle and light pressure point massage, this restores harmony and balance through the body through the flow of energy.  The lymph’s main function is to detoxify the muscles.  Muscle function is important within the role of healing the body as when they receive an optimal supply of blood and lymph they function at their peak. The Therapists role within your healing process can be wide ranging, they may deal with phobias, allergies, stress, nutritional disparity and they may instigate a process of detoxification.  At your first and subsequent sessions your kinesiologist will discuss your condition and any progress, from there you will be advised upon further sessions that are needed. 

Typically, many clients find six appointments usual, from there they may return for recommended follow-ups around three to four times per year. Kinesiology is also used in conjunction with homoeopathy, herbalism and osteopathy. Hence, it is advisable to contact an osteopath or chiropractor who is also qualified in kinesiology, for problems related to ligaments, muscles or bones.   If however your condition is of an emotional or mental nature, contacting a psychotherapist or counselor, who practices kinesiology, would be recommended.


Most people find Kinesiology deeply relaxing and enjoy the tension it releases throughout the body.  It is also extremely safe when carried out by a qualified Kinesiology practitioner.  It is wise to carry out some research and select a therapist who is either a member of, or accredited by, an association or professional body such as the Kinesiology Association of New Zealand (KANZ).  Kinesiologists are obligated to a code of ethics and procedure that determines the therapy is carried out in a suitable and safe environment.  These regulations also guarantee a specialist who has undergone certifiable training and receives professional upskilling.
