Greetings, I am Simon Lawton, a certified Systematic Kinesiology practitioner operating in Epsom, Surrey.
Kinesiology is a holistic healthcare practice that aims to promote overall wellness by addressing the body as a whole. The root cause of ill health is often due to a combination of factors such as environmental/chemical toxicity, physical and emotional stressors, nutritional deficiencies and pathogens.
Although the human body has a remarkable ability to repair and heal itself, it can sometimes become overwhelmed, leading to the development of chronic conditions. In some cases, symptoms are disregarded or concealed with pharmaceutical products. Unfortunately, many individuals accept these conditions as “their fate” or an unavoidable consequence of ageing.
Kinesiology employs powerful techniques for tapping into the body’s biochemistry to ascertain any imbalances that may cause pain, discomfort, stress, etc. These symptoms are the body’s way of warning us that something is wrong and should not be ignored.

The medical profession divides the body into distinct systems. Kinesiology treats the body holistically.
Kinesiology takes a holistic approach to maintaining well-being by incorporating different aspects of the body:
Physical – The structure of the body: muscles, bones, joints etc.
Mental – The emotions we experience
Chemical – Nutrition and toxins
Energetical – The flow of energy through our body
Modern-day life is full of challenges for the body, from the stresses of a hectic lifestyle to the nutritionally deficient food typical of the Western diet. Every day we experience the emotional rollercoaster of work and relationships and are constantly exposed to pollutants and toxins whilst being bombarded with electromagnetic fields. The body does its best to deal with all of these stressors but can get overwhelmed. When it does, it will make adaptations to cope; this is what can lead to the development of health problems. Kinesiology provides the tools to get to the root of these problems by talking directly to the body through the language of muscle testing.
Muscle testing is a means of talking directly to the body, and the body never lies.
Kinesiology uses muscle testing to find imbalances in the body and what is needed to restore balance. It is a non-invasive, gentle and safe means of assessing the body’s status.
There are over 40 different muscle tests in Systematic Kinesiology, each linked to specific meridians and organs of the body. A muscle is tested by placing aspects of the body in particular positions to isolate it. Gentle pressure is then applied briefly to the muscle, with the client attempting to resist that pressure. The integrity of the muscle can be assessed by observing if the response is strong, weak or shaky.
Muscle testing doesn’t test the power of the muscle. It tests the nervous system’s ability to “fire” the muscle. Whenever a muscle is engaged, the body needs to check a multitude of systems to ensure that everything is fine to contract the muscle. Many factors can cause the muscle to lose its ability to fully function, including emotional stressors, chemical imbalances and impediments in the energy flow.
Muscle testing often reveals imbalances that will not show in clinical tests. When the integrity of the muscle is restored, it impacts the whole body by restoring energy flows, resolving chemical imbalances, and removing emotional distress, allowing the body’s innate ability to restore itself to a natural state of health.
