My story started in Russia where I was born. At thirteen I moved to England and fell in love with this incredible country. After finishing my Masters in Organisational Psychology I also worked in clinical settings though I was never happy with the limitations of the conventional medical model. I sensed that there were more effective and less invasive methods of healing mental and physical illness than taking potent drugs with toxic side effects or undergoing surgery. Using my scientific background I attempted to build upon my conventional medical knowledge in order to bridge the gap between science and the spiritual. I learned from spiritual teaches in India, Nepal and Thailand. Then, trained in Health Kinesiolgy, EFT, NLP and Hypnotherapy. The alternative therapy that I resonate with the most is Health Kinesiology

What is Health Kinesiology
Health Kinesiology (HK) is aimed at balancing the distribution of the “vital energy” or Chi running through the energy pathways or meridians in our bodies, discovered by the Chinese practitioners thousand of years ago. This energy has similar characteristics to electromagnetic energy though it is much more than this.
The disturbances or blockages in the meridians lead to health problems as well as have an effect on our psychological wellbeing. This can be caused by many different factors such as pollutants, nutrition, stress, negative emotions, allergens, toxins, electromagnetic frequencies, geopathic energies and so on. Health Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify these disturbances and then uses various balancing techniques in order to promote good physical and psychological health.
HK Can Help With:
Aches & Pains
Allergies/ Hay Fever
Phobias & Fears
Low Self Esteem
Who can Benefit from HK?
A wide range of physical and psychological problems can be treated by Health Kinesiology.
It has also been able to treat ailments that traditional medicine could not diagnose despite numerous tests undertaken. It can help to alleviate emotional and physical pain. Health Kinesiology was attracted people from all walks of life as it recognises that each individual is unique and respects the body’s own inner knowledge what it needs.
A Holistic Approach to HK
Health Kinesiology is a holistic approach where physical, emotional, mental and spiritual attributes of an individual are addressed. They are viewed as interconnected aspects of a person that have a causal relationship with one another. This is rather different to the mainstream medicine where physical ailments are addressed in isolation.
Health Kinesiology recognises that symptoms manifesting on the physical level may be caused by imbalances in the person’s emotional life. Health Kinesiology also recognises that the physical body is important and that nutrition, allergy work or other techniques that affect the system can sometimes be the best way to alleviate the symptoms. Sometimes symptoms such as irritable bowel or back pain may be reflecting disharmony in the emotional mental or spiritual areas. At other times, psychological problems such as irritability and tension can be caused by mineral imbalance in the body hence the best solution would be to focus on the physical rather than psychological.
What Techniques are used in HK?
Health Kinesiology uses a number of methods to alleviate the symptoms. These include holding pressure points on the meridians, nutritional supplements, altering client’s diet, the use of herbal remedies, essences, essential oils, homeopathic remedies as well as recommending lifestyle changes. The appropriate balancing method is found through muscle testing.
What is Muscle Testing Used in HK?
Muscle testing works on the premise that at the level far below conceptual consciousness the body “knows” what is good and what is bad for it. The Indicator Muscle will test strong or weak in the presence of emotional, intellectual or physical stimuli. For example a statement “I hate you” or an allergen will make the muscle test weak and a smile or a healthy natural supplement will test strong. The client may not consciously know what the root of the problem may be. It is by accessing body’s own inner wisdom in the form of yes/no answers that fast progress in the session can be made. When a practitioner applies pressure to a specific part of a body (often arm), the client’s muscle will either resist the pressure of will weaken. The first means “yes” and the latter means “no”. Because of the relationship between muscles, meridians, and body systems the practitioner can gain information about imbalances within the body and the necessary procedures to correct them.
What about he Placebo Effect in HK?
The client does not need to have to have blind faith in order to benefit from Health Kinesiology. Health Kinesiology has been used on people who are mentally handicapped as well as on babies and animals. These clients have improved despite having no conscious concept of what was happening to them.
