The History of Kinesiology

Originally used by the orthodox medical professions for many years to test range of movement, power and tone of muscles in injury and stroke cases.

Developed in 1965 by Dr J. Goodheart D.C. a Chiropractor  in the U.S.A. Dr Goodheart discovered that when a muscle was tested the result could reveal vital information about the individual being tested, which was quite impossible to determine by any other method of investigation.
Many new additional aspects of the health and physiological function of the individual being tested was able to be assessed in seconds. During the last 20 years the body of knowledge now known as  “Applied Kinesiology” has developed rapidly and much clinical research has validated the many new discoveries.

Development of the Science of Kinesiology

Following on from his discovery of  the links associated with the muscular system Dr Goodheart then connected the research already made by Chapman, an Osteopath, who had charted the Lymphatic Reflexes on the body with the different muscle groups.

Next, he investigated the skin reflexes located on the skull and previously researched by Bennet, another Osteopath, which were found to improve blood circulation with the lightest of touches.
By combining these works it was found that most of the muscles in the body have a common link with the nerve pathways which control organs in the body and that anything which benefits the musculature also balances the organ function.
Finally the link was made between Western technology and the ancient Chinese principles of natural energy flow in the body, and how it may be assessed and monitored by the use of simple muscle tests.
The science of Applied Kinesiological  testing made a quantum leap in it’s power and effectiveness.

Names of Kinesiology

The name KINESIOLOGY is used as a generic term in the United Kingdom because the name Applied Kinesiology is a registered trademark. Our Kinesiology courses teach the techniques of the original Applied form and utilise it in a systematic manner. Many other forms of Kinesiology have different names but all are acknowledged as being offshoots from the original Applied form.

What it does

Kinesiology links traditional Chinese ideas of meridian energy flow found in acupuncture and acupressure with Western style muscle testing, diet and stress management. Today almost every country in the West accepts the 'Eastern' forms of healing alongside orthodox medicine.

Continuous existence and rapid development of Kinesiology in today's modern and scientific society testifies to its effectiveness. This system of diagnosis is based on sound reproducible principles. Feedback directly from the body indicates what is required to correct not only the presenting symptom, but also more importantly the underlying cause.

The practitioner restores balance within the body simply and quickly, relieving energy blockages, reducing tension and enhancing the body's cleansing of toxins and natural healing ability.

Corrections include holding or massaging acupuncture points, neuro-lymphatic reflexes and neuro-vascular reflexes; coupled with nutritional supplements and dietary changes.

Although considerable benefit may be gained from just one visit, it depends on the severity and duration of the problems as to how many treatments are necessary. Experience shows that in most cases significant improvement is seen in three to six visits.
