How to Choose a Kinesiologist
Are you experiencing health niggles or issues that just won’t go away? Then you might like to see a kinesiologist. They take a holistic approach to health – treating the whole body rather than individual symptoms.
But how do you go about finding the right practitioner for you? Just use our handy guide on how to choose a kinesiologist.
Know what you need
There are many different styles of kinesiology, including:
- Applied Kinesiology: this is a technique commonly used by osteopaths, chiropractors, dentists and doctors.
- Traditional Kinesiology: this is typically used in exercise physiology and biomechanics.
- Specialised Kinesiology: this tends to encompass several modalities including Touch For Health, Neural Organisation Technique, Applied Neurogenics, Hyperton-X, One Brain, Manual, Applied Physiology, Neuro Linguistic, Psych-Energetics and more.
The kinesiologist you visit depends on what you need help with. For instance, you might see a kinesiologist to help diagnose and treat:
- Mental health issues including anxiety
- Fatigue and sleep troubles
- Weight gain
- Hormone imbalances
- Digestive issues and food intolerances
- Chronic pain
- Sports injuries

goes into different types of kinesiology in more detail. It also explains what kinesiologists do, and what health conditions and complaints they can help with.
Check their qualifications
In Australia, kinesiologists can register with the Australian Kinesiology Association. As members, they must adhere to a strict code of ethics. Choosing a registered practitioner also provides peace of mind that they have undertaken an approved qualification recognised by regulatory bodies.
Ask for recommendations
Many people hear about kinesiology from friends and family. For instance, one of my friends couldn’t stop raving about how a practitioner got to the bottom of her hormone problems – something her doctor had been unable to do. I booked a session the same week, and got relief from lingering digestive issues and intolerances.
