What Is Kinesiology


Kinesiology is a gentle and non-invasive natural therapy or complementary health practice that combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine. Kinesiology techniques including muscle testing enable a kinesiologist to identify stress in the body, whether emotional, mental, physical, nutritional or energetic. 

A kinesiologist will then perform gentle non-invasive kinesiology techniques to improve health, wellbeing and vitality. Some of these techniques include tapping, emotional release, massage of meridian points, acupressure holding points, oils or essences, just to name a few. This process is known as a Kinesiology Balance.

Kinesiology is complimentary, we do not claim to treat, diagnose or cure. Kinesiology is designed to complement other traditional forms of medicine. What Kinesiology can do is help people manage and release stress, reduce or relieve pain, improve performance and promote health and wellbeing.

History of Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a natural healing modality originally developed by Chiropractor Dr George Goodheart DC, in the early 1960s. He discovered the relationship between the Chinese meridian system and the muscles, organs and glands. Bringing the two together to work in coherence gave us the ability to holistically look at the body, mind and energy system, and see how they interact with each other.

How Does it Work?

Kinesiology taps into energies that other modalities do not assess and looks beyond the symptoms to address the imbalance that is causing them. To put it simply, Kinesiology identifies what needs to be done in order to bring the body back into a state of balance. Once the stress is gone the client has the opportunity to have better performance and success in their relationships, career, learning, communication, and even in the body’s physiology.

Kinesiology clears stress by

  • Releasing sabotages
  • Clearing emotional wounds
  • Removing the issues that are blocking a person from thriving
  • Clearing old experiences that have dissolved self-esteem
  • Clearing old family patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving you
  • Releasing any blocks to healing
  • Opening you up to receive the abundance that life is offering.


There are many different streams of kinesiology that cover different methods for finding and relieving stresses in the body, both physically and mentally. People are unique and so a one size fits all approach hinders the best possible results.

My Approach

My focus in the clinic is to always have the most effective tools to help clients achieve their desired outcome. This focus, combined with my huge love of learning has led me to complete training in 5 different streams of kinesiology and many more modalities.

I leverage all of my experience and training to help me find insight into my clients ‘internal’ patterns and programs, which are stowed away as a memory. This allows me and you as my client to understand the emotions, which influence these behaviours and habits, so you can learn more about what’s preventing you from living the life you desire.

By harnessing the gentle yet powerful healing properties of the various Kinesiology techniques I have mastered, I look to bring positive, long term improvements to my client’s health and well being. 

You can BOOK a kinesiology session Monday to Wednesday and some Saturdays in my clinic in Crows Nest, Sydney Australia!
