Kinesiologist – Job Description
The basic premise of kinesiology is that the body has its own healing energy and is doing its best to care for itself, but sometimes needs a little help to achieve this state. Kinesiology, therefore, may be understood as a system of natural health care which combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function. The kinesiologist enables this process by applying a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques to improve health, well-being and vitality.
Kinesiologists tap into energies that other modalities do not assess. They look beyond the symptoms, and do not diagnose or treat named diseases. In fact, they do not limit themselves to dealing with ailments, since energy balancing can bring a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice, whether in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life in general. They are concerned with imbalances in the body’s energy, and in this respect, have close links with the acupuncture concept of energy flow. A kinesiologist recognizes that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that go to make the body a living, feeling being.
Kinesiologists apply muscle testing to identify and correct energy blockages within the body; it is a natural feedback system which receives information via nerve pathways and the meridian system of the brain and body. This muscle feedback system gives instant access into the holistic information held by the subconscious brain. A weak muscle test can therefore be an indicator that stress is having a tellingly negative effect somewhere in the system. By accessing the bio-system via this muscle monitoring tool, kinesiologists can get quite specific and very quickly come up with the right answers.
