What to expect from a Kinesiology treatment

During the initial Kinesiology treatment, I will conduct a detailed assessment to ascertain your current state of health, lifestyle, diet, emotional state and what your priorities are.

Through muscle testing, I will determine the imbalances that may be contributing to your issues and which ones are a priority for your body. Once these priority imbalances have been identified, I can then see which nutritional supplements can support your body’s recovery and whether there is any emotional involvement in the imbalances.

These imbalances are then treated through massaging key points to help improve lymphatic drainage, holding other points to improve blood flow and the flow of energy along the meridians. Once completed, I will retest the muscle to ensure that it is now reading strong, indicating that balance has been restored.

At the end of the Kinesiology treatment you will receive a recommendations sheet which will outline any suggested changes to food/lifestyle as well as the supplements that tested as beneficial for your body. You may purchase these supplements here or I can purchase them on your behalf. You will also be given Bach Flower remedies to counter emotional issues.

Kinesiology sessions are performed fully clothed. The clinic is located on the first floor up one flight of stairs. If stairs are a problem, please let me know in advance and I can arrange for the session to be performed on the ground floor.

How many Kinesiology treatments will be needed?

We will be looking for improvements after the first session with much improved outcomes after 3 or 4 sessions. Everyone is different and this can depend on a number of factors, such as: the amount of time you have experienced the condition, what underlying emotions issues are contributing to the problem, whether you are willing and able to make any recommended lifestyle changes including taking the recommended supplements.

Sessions are normally performed at monthly intervals. Even after any symptoms have been resolved, it is still recommended to have regular sessions to correct any imbalances before they develop into health issues. It is entirely up to you how regularly you’d like to receive Kinesiology sessions.

All disease begins in the gut

Gut health - The Ileocecal Valve (ICV)

The most common reason for many issues that people experience is due to poor gut health, which can cause many diverse and seemingly unrelated ailments in the body. Symptoms may include: abdominal pain, autoimmune conditions, excessive gas, constipation/diarrhoea, hip and lower back pain, fatigue, migraines, shoulder problems – just to name a few. It is now believed that the gut forms an estimated 80% of our immune system, so it is important that we keep it in good working order.

The purpose of our gut is to take in nutrition, digest it, absorb it into the body and eliminate any waste. The stomach digests our food, using acids and enzymes to turn it into a liquid known as “chyme”. This is then passed to the small intestine, which has a single-cell thin lining that allows the small particles of nutrition to be absorbed into the body. Any waste is then passed into the large intestine via the Ileocecal Valve (ICV), which opens and closes periodically to allow waste to pass through and preventing any flow of toxins back into the small intestine. The large intestine reabsorbs water and eliminates waste via the rectum.

If the ICV malfunctions it may not open/close when required, allowing toxins to build up in the small intestine or flow back from the large intestine. It is these toxins that can cause health issues. Kinesiology provides a set of techniques that allows us to detect a malfunctioning ICV and restore it to full working order.

Microbiome reset

Did you know that an estimated 90% of all the DNA in your body is not actually you? We are hosts to a myriad of organisms and bacteria that work with us symbiotically. In return for providing them with a home they help us digest food, produce vitamins and protect us from pathogens. An average person carries approximately 2kg of microbiome in their gut alone. Scientists have recently found that the vagus nerve, which connects the brain to our gut, actually carries 80% of the communication from the gut to the brain. Our gut can influence our behaviour and really should be regarded as our second brain.

Our microbiome helps protect the small junctions in the permeable walls of the small intestine, which allows amino acids, glucose, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to pass into the bloodstream. These tight junctions can become enlarged allowing larger particles of food that is not fully digested to pass through the gut lining. These particles are not recognised by the body as nutrition and may be attacked by the body’s own immune system. This is known as leaky gut syndrome.

Our microbiome can be thrown out of balance through overuse of antibiotics, a poor diet, stress, toxins and infections. When our microbiome becomes imbalanced it provides an opportunity for the “less-friendly” bacteria to take a foothold; this imbalance in the microbiome is known as “dysbiosis”.

The microbiome reset is an 8 week programme that restores the balance of the microbiome and repairs the intestinal lining. Kinesiology allows us to find the supplements that will help restore and repair the gut. Weeks 1 to 4 focuses on removing the bad intestinal flora and clearing out toxins from the intestines. Weeks 5 to 8 is about repopulating the gut with beneficial flora and repairing the intestinal lining. A healthy body needs a healthy gut.
