Just the other day, we overheard someone in the office talking about kinesiology.
For those of us who’ve never dabbled in the alternative therapy, we brought in holistic kinesiologist and author Melissa Horne to explain why she’s hooked on the study of muscles and movement.
Mel started her wellness journey in the buttoned-up corporate world, and while the 9-5 life brought her periods of fulfilment and prosperity, she quickly began to yearn for more… More calm, peace, creativity, freedom and a whole lot less fear and insecurity.
After a health scare landed her in hospital with severe symptoms, she was determined to lose the stale, unsettled feeling clouding her life and embark on a healthy new relationship with her body. In the weeks that followed her operation, she let go of her stressful way of life and began to experience a whole new level of clarity and connectedness. Today, she is healthy and happy, blessed to be in a beautiful relationship and so eager to spread the word about kinesiology. Keep reading for Mel’s tips on releasing stress and tension, creating positive energy and finding the perfect Kinesiologist for you…
The first time the word ‘Kinesiology’ came into my awareness, I was hooked.
Call it a sign from the universe or a jolt onto my path, 4 years after discovering kinesiology, I took a big leap of faith, quit my day job, and began studying this phenomenal healing modality. The rest is history…
Kinesiology literally means the study of movement: the movement of your body, your energy, your emotions, your bio-chemistry and the movement of your life.
Kinesiology is all about being in flow, in balance and bringing you to a place where you are in alignment with your truth (the stuff that lights you up & makes you smile), and living up to your potential.
It’s truly incredible.
So, how does this all happen?
Kinesiology works directly with your body via muscle testing: connecting in with your body’s bio-feedback system, which pinpoints stress and energy blocks by accessing your cellular memory (each of the trillions of cells in our bodies have its own memory bank, which is how we can remember repetitive actions, recognise familiar places etc).
Once we’ve found where the energy block or stress is, muscle testing also shows what is required to diffuse the stress and bring you back to balance – it could be an acupressure point, a chakra clearing, a specific emotion released, stress around a memory cleared or any other holistic technique that is required.
I like to think of Kinesiology as being a door to your conscious & subconscious self, where out-dated beliefs, behaviours & stresses, are unlocked and released from your body, your mind and your energetic self.
How does this benefit YOU?
The short answer: in so many ways. Who doesn’t like feeling vibrant, creative, energetic and connected to self?
When there is a block, or you’re feeling stuck for extended periods of time, or you’re not quite reaching your goals, there’s some kind of stress lingering, so if you catch it and clear it before it manifests physically, you are much better off.
Stress might first show up as:
- Feeling the pressure of not enough time in the day
- Feeling flat, tired and anxious
- Negative self-talk and “comparisonitis”
- Feeling unhappy and like you’re just keeping up
- Right through to physical illness such as infertility, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, adrenal fatigue and many other illnesses, of which stress is a known contributor.
Immediate benefits after a kinesiology session are increased clarity, sleep, energy and a deeper connection to self. Long term benefits are reduced stress and a happier, more soulful life, because Kinesiology is great for teaching you about yourself and how to manage those day to day stresses (and the bigger ones) which pop up for all of us.
Why would you go to a Kinesiologist?
A lot of the time, you’re working towards a goal.
How do you want to feel? How do you want to live? What do you want to achieve?
You can think big here.
I’ve worked with people to clear Achilles heel pain, banish diverticulitis, bring in streams of insight & creativity and come up out of the fog of ‘ruttness’ (amongst other things).
Here are a few other examples;
- If you’re feeling out of whack though aren’t sure why
- Lack of clarity & connection to self
- You need better quality of sleep
- You want to reach bigger & better goals for yourself (think money, fitness, career, personal development, life development etc.)
- Boost confidence & self-worth
- Bust through self-sabotage + break old cycles and nasty habits
At the end of the day, everything is energy, and if there is a block in that energy flow creating stress for you and in your life, Kinesiology will help to clear that stress and move you to a more positive place.
My best tip for finding a Kinesiologist:
You develop a pretty special relationship with your kinesiologist, so my best tip is to find someone who you feel you can connect with, be open with and be inspired by.
If you do, you’ll relax into the process more readily and your results will be phenomenal.
They may not be the closest person to you, but they’ll be the right one to help you get to where you need to go.
So, are you ready to be balanced?
