"So what exactly is Systematic Kinesiology?" is a question I get asked a lot so I thought it was about time I gave a concise and clear explanation.
Systematic Kinesiology is a complementary therapy. We don’t suggest you see us instead of a western doctor rather that you can choose to see a complementary practitioner alongside your doctor. We don’t diagnose or treat disease, instead we help to holistically support the body to facilitate healing on every level.
THE M.O.T PACKAGE
The best time to see a Kinesiologist is when you’re feeling completely fine. This is because when you feel well we can detect minor imbalances in your body that haven’t yet progressed to a persistent problem. However, most people pay us a visit when they notice a stubborn problem that’s not going away, what we call symptoms. These are our friends as they alert us to imbalances in the body. Think of your body like your car; you normally book an MOT when the car needs a general check up, not when it’s having problems. While we aim to be a rebalancing MOT service, most people come to us with symptoms that they can’t get rid of.
SYMPTOMS + FROGS
So where do symptoms come from? Take a look at the diagram below which explains the step by step process starting with full health and leading to disease.
This is not meant to scare but to create awareness that symptoms shouldn't be ignored. There's a wonderful analogy we use in Kinesiology called the Boiling Frog principle. Scientists placed a frog in a pan of cold water and incrementally turned the heat up. The frog didn’t realise it was slowly boiling to death until it was too late* (please note no frogs were harmed in this experiment!). The same happens to humans, we don’t notice the incremental changes over the years until it’s too late and we end up with a disease or condition which is irreversible. This doesn’t need to be the case if you address the imbalances via Kinesiology before they become a problem.
TREATING THE WHOLE
We look at your health on every level including your emotional, structural, chemical and energetic health as often the symptoms you’re experiencing have a root cause in a different realm. Your mind and body are not separate so we don’t treat them as such.
Example 1. Feeling anxious can often be caused by an emotional block such as lack of trust in the process of life, but it can also have its roots through a nutritional imbalance of certain minerals and vitamins which support a healthy functioning nervous system.
Example 2. Having diarrhea every morning can often be caused through a slight food sensitivity such as coffee, but it can also have its roots through an emotional trigger such as stress around work or holding on to grief from a loss of a relationship or job.
I don’t dismiss any of the other incredible therapies out there, they are all wonderful in their own right but Systematic Kinesiology is the only one that deals with you as a whole.
THREE MEN IN A BAR
Three men in a bar have lower back pain. One goes to see a physiotherapist and he comes out feeling great because his lower back pain has disappeared. He tells his two friends who book in immediately. The second man has his session and comes out feeling better temporarily but his lower back pain quickly returns. The third man goes in and his lower back pain doesn’t change. Why is this?
The first man had lower back pain with a structural root cause so the physio was able to make improvements. The second man had lower back pain but the root cause was a malfunctioning Illeocecal Valve (ICV) and therefore didn’t feel any long-lasting pain relief as his digestion and nutrition wasn’t addressed. The third man was going through a divorce and the root cause of his lower back pain was from a lack of emotional support which had switched the muscles off supporting his back, therefore a physical therapy didn’t make any difference when it wasn’t addressing his emotional state.
Systematic Kinesiology allows us to get to the root cause, wherever it may be hidden, allowing the body to return to homeostasis. If you have any questions about a particular health concern get in touch to discuss in absolute confidence.
