Kinesiology / Acupressure

Kinesiology is a healing technique which improves the balance, general wellbeing and health of an individual. Through gentle muscle testing techniques, practitioners can make a holistic assessment and apply a tailored program for healing to the individual.

As kinesiologists, we use a muscle testing technique which reveals insights about the mind and body’s overall state. The practice looks at all aspects of the individual and the flows of energy around the body. The technique reveals insights to the practitioner as it measures the nervous systems functioning between the muscles and the brain and body. The tension in the muscles reveals the pathways of blocked energy which need to have healing attention. When we find the areas which need to be treated, there are techniques which are used to stimulate the body into its natural self-healing modality.

During treatment, patients are comfortable and fully clothed. It is a non-invasive treatment which has no associated pain and sessions usually run for about one to one and a half hours. The amount of sessions required will be advised by our professionals.

Acupressure is a practice within Chinese traditional medicine that is believed to be over 5000 years old. It is one of the oldest and most widespread healings in the world. It is similar in nature to acupuncture, except without the needles! Acupressure uses deep finger pressure on specific points in the body, to clear the blockages in our body’s energy pathways.

Acupressure is used to stimulate the energy systems in your body, restoring the balance of yin, yang and qi and thereby releasing and bringing relief to the areas of your body that are out of balance.

Acupressure can be used for pain relief, to reduce tension in the body, to increase circulation, as preventative health-care, boosting the immune system and enhancing the body’s healing energy. The beliefs in Acupressure are that we have an invisible system of energy channels within the body, known as meridians. These energy channels are directly attributed to parts of the body. When blockages prevent the flow of energy around these points, it can cause discomfort and disease.

Acupressure is usually performed on a soft massage table, with the patient fully-clothed. Our practitioners press on various points on the body in a non-invasive and gentle manner. Sessions are usually run in one to one and a half hour blocks, with a number of sessions usually required for a complete treatment.

Acupressure massage therapy deals with all aspects of a person considering body, emotions, mind and spirit as one, not as separate parts. The healing touch of acupressure supports a longer, healthier, more vital life.
