Conventionally, the word kinesiology (kin-easy-ology) means the study of motion, in particular the study of how muscles act and co-ordinate to move the body.
However, in the natural health field, the term Specialized Kinesiology is used to indicate the many systems which have sprung from Applied Kinesiology and Touch for Health™.
Here, muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the body. The concept of “muscle testing” becomes a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body which may relate to stress, nutrition, learning problems, injuries and so on.
In addition to balancing the body, Kinesiology give us tools to assess how your body moves, and adjusts to compensate for injuries, restrictions and pain. In essence it helps to locate the cause of the imbalance, not just the symptoms.
