Feeling under par?


Kinesiology is a therapy that uses manual muscle testing to determine where the client may have imbalances in their system, and what the client needs in order to restore balance and wellbeing. The roots of kinesiology can be traced back to the American chiropractor George G. Goodheart who, in 1964, identified that the evaluation of normal and abnormal body function could be carried out by muscle testing.

Amazing kinesiology treatment for my 10 year old daughter for hayfever, Julie made us both feel very relaxed, and we had fantastic results. Will definately recommend your services to everyone. Thank you again.

How does it work?

The basic concept behind Kinesiology is the fact that in order for the body to function correctly and maintain health there should be balance between all the body systems.

In Kinesiology terms this is related to the Mental, Physical, Chemical components of the body as well as the energy.

Kinesiology, which means “the study of movement” was discovered by chiropractor George Goodheart in the early sixties. He learned to interpret the results that he found when he exerted pressure on a limb to test how a specific muscle was working.

Goodheart also found that if a muscle wasn’t as strong as the other muscles, he could rub treatment points on the body that acted like switches and turned the muscle back on to full strength. He realised that if he stimulated certain acupuncture meridians, it would also restore a muscle’s strength and that each muscle shared a circuit with a meridian and an organ. This discovery allowed him get to the root of why some people’s hip, back or knee pain was not improving, or why they needed regular adjustments because treatment would not hold. He found that he was able to identify and correct muscle malfunctions by finding the cause of their distress. This might be a nutritional imbalance, an emotional stress, or an acupuncture meridian imbalance. He could then apply the best treatment for his patient’s underlying problems. Treatments worked really well and ‘held’ a lot longer. Since Dr Goodheart’s original discoveries, other practitioners have developed kinesiology into the amazing diagnostic tool it is today.

Kinesiology uses a range of gentle yet extremely powerful techniques. These restore and maintain health and well-being. You can function better on all levels. Kinesiology also allows the kinesiologist to draw on other healing techniques and modalities and integrate them into the session where appropriate and indicated by the muscle response.

If we can understand that the body has an innate ability to heal itself then we can assume that it is always trying to care for itself. Sometimes however through an imbalance due to stress (mental), a food intolerance that has been ‘undiagnosed’ (Chemical) or a physical injury (physical) then the body will eventually become unbalanced and that is where Kinesiology can help.

By using different muscles that are related to different energy systems (based on Chinese medicine) we can test where and what the imbalance is. It acts as a natural bio-feedback system where the muscles are the indicators.

Once we have established the reason for the imbalance then we can correct it by various techniques such as massage, colour, bach flower remedies, and sound.

Feedback from client after a Kinesiology balance:

Kinesiology has played a very significant part in my recovery from Borreliosis (Lyme Disease). Having suffered very severely for a period of over 12 months, my consultant recommended seeking other holistic treatments, to complement aggressive antibiotics prescribed by my GP. My initial scepticism of Kinesiology was put to rest within 48hrs of my first treatment. I could barely believe the improvement in my physical symptoms – something I hadn’t experienced in over a year. I have now had 4 treatments and each has facilitated a marked improvement. I am now fully returned to work, gently running and cycling again and really enjoying family time J.
Julie was recommended to me by a friend – and I would not hesitate to do the same for others.”
– Jeff M from Rochdale after Kinesiology

During a Kinesiology treatment we can help to establish what the root causes of the imbalance are.

We can see what areas of the body may have energy blockages and imbalances

We can see if there are areas of the body that may need food supplement support

What foods can cause the body to be stressed and what foods would be beneficial to you.

We can see if your thoughts are causing you to to become imbalanced.

What are the benefits?

Because kinesiology works on the body at a very deep level it is particularly useful for releasing stress and past trauma as well as helping with the current physical and mental problems the client is experiencing.

What are the side effects and when should it be avoided?

Because kinesiology is non-invasive it can be used by anyone, including children and the elderly. Clients who attend a kinesiology session for a physical problem may discover, during the course of the consultation, that the physical symptoms are connected to long-buried emotional issues.

Some clients report that, because kinesiology helps to release pent-up stress, they have found themselves responding to the treatment with tears or other strong emotion. Most people say that the muscle testing process is very relaxing and enjoyable.

I’ve been to see Julie for two health issues that doctors could not fix;
One was extreme unexplained bloating; Julie discovered via kinesiology that it was emotionally related and fixed me. I’ve never since had the extreme pain I used to suffer from!
The second was a very scary constant dizzy feeling; a loss of memory; confusion, leg pain and continual vertigo. A neurologist couldn’t find anything wrong and I’d been forced to resign from work. After one visit to Julie for a session of kinesiology, I left feeling absolutely fine. She fixed me in less than an hour!
I can’t explain her treatment as I still don’t understand it, but I 100% recommend her as a therapist. She has such a delicate and compassionate disposition with her patients and I can honestly say I hold a very special place for her in my life now.
Thank you Julie X (Sarah B)

Food Intolerance and Allergy Testing

Stress can be a major cause of food sensitivities as stress can compromise the digestive system; it can weaken the immune system. Some sensitivities are genetic such as Crohn’s, eating habits and immune related factors. Sensitivities can occur due to eating too much of one type of food – did you know that 80% of most diets are made up of just 10 foods?
Sensitivities can occur due to an enzyme deficiency, nutritional deficiencies, poor liver function, poor thyroid function, toxicity, leaky gut, Crohns disease, Candida, chronic antibiotic use, chronic steroid use, alcohol abuse and many more factors.
At Totally Holistic Health we don’t just test for an intolerance or allergy as there are so many factors to take into account. First we have to make sure that the body is in a balanced state which we achieve by using a technique called Kinesiology. Only once the body is balanced do we then proceed to test for an allergy or intolerance as on many occasions there is no intolerance just an unbalanced body.

If and when an intolerance has been identified we then can use Kinesiology techniques to strengthen the body against the allergen to help your body to be able to process it better.
