What is Kinesiology, How can it help me?

Access your body’s own unique wisdom...

Imagine if you could ask your body what you needed to do to enjoy vibrant health and well-being and actually have your body answer back.

This is the founding principle of Kinesiology – a well established therapy system that combines the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the modern technique of muscle testing

Your body is extraordinary...

As you read this, your body is hard at work, breathing, excreting toxins, balancing hormones, assimilating nutrients and performing countless other vital functions to keep you in a state of balance.

Sometimes that balance is disturbed – whether by physical trauma, emotional or psychological disturbances, stress, allergens or any other physical, emotional, mental or environmental factor.

Kinesiology accesses your body’s unique wisdom to find out exactly what you need to help you maintain balance and feel truly healthy, both inside and out.

How does Kinesiology work?

Kinesiology communicates with your body using gentle muscle testing. This highly skilled technique involves applying light pressure to a muscle and monitoring how it responds. This response reveals exactly what procedure is ideal for you.

The techniques are gentle and may involve the person:
  • Thinking a precise thought,

  • Self touch,

  • Being placed in a specific body position or carrying out a specific movement,

  • Having magnets, essences or allergen samples placed on specific places on the body.

While doing this, acupuncture points are gently held to retune the energy of the body and help to maintain the body’s natural balance. No needles are involved

KInesiology therapy is very gentle, non-invasive and can be used by all age groups.

You don’t have to be ill to experience benefit from Kinesiology...

Allergy Testing through Kinesiology

The most comprehensive Allergy and Low Tolerance testing available

What is an allergy?

Depending on which source you listen to there are many different definitions for an allergy.

In the holistic approach of Kinesiology we are looking at the body as an energy system so we define an allergy as ‘a substance that causes an altered energy reaction, in the tissue, in response to any amount of that substance’.

This means the smallest grain or particle will be enough to disturb your energy system.

The disturbance in the energy system could result in any number of responses any time up to 72hrs after the exposure.

In fact any symptom in your body can be created or exacerbated by an allergy.

With Kinesiology, because we are not just looking at what effects your skin or your breathing or your digestion, we can often identify allergies that are affecting parts of your system that conventional allergy testing will miss

This is only the tip of the iceberg of what Kinesiology can do for your body.

Allergy and Low Tolerance, what is the difference?

From the outward reaction there is little difference between allergy and low tolerance, but on the inside, they affect the body in very different ways.

Whereas the body will respond to any amount of an allergen, it is the volume of the low tolerance that matters.

The body recognises what the substance is, but finds it hard work to process and metabolise it. So the more you have the more the body struggles to deal with it. When the volume you have had, which may have built up over several days or weeks, exceeds the body’s capacity to cope, then a reaction will occur.

The effect can be multiplied if you are in contact with a number of low tolerance items at once. This also explains why, for some people, they don’t react all the time to things they suspect, or why they are well or unwell only in certain places or at certain times of the day, week, month or year.

It is also possible to have a zero tolerance to a substance but not to have an allergy; in this case the substance should be avoided.

How is the testing done?

All the testing is done using the gentle muscle testing techniques of Kinesiology; we monitor the body’s response when we place a sample of a potential allergen on a sensitive acupoints just below the navel. The response from the muscle indicates what effect the substance is having on the body.

All samples remain sealed in glass vials so there is no chance of a physical reaction taking place. Only muscle testing is used so there is definitely no use of needles, blood testing or scratch testing. As balancing techniques from Kinesiology are used to calibrate the body, most people find the experience relaxing, intriguing and reassuring.

The testing takes about one hour with your results discussed and presented in a booklet on the spot.

What do I do with my results?

How you use your results is up to you, there are two main options that we suggest.

Firstly you can use an elimination diet. This is where you totally remove exposure to the items identified as allergies. Significantly reduce the things to which you have a low tolerance so that you are not having these items so that you are not exposed to them more than once in every seven days so that your body has time to remove one exposure fully from the system before you have another one.

Within 3-4 weeks you should see an improvement if you are being strict and have followed the guidelines for removing additives and chemical.

Anything less than a complete effort with this method will only bring a partial improvement.

What if I can’t (or don’t want to) avoid items in my results?

The second way to help yourself is to return for some further sessions of Kinesiology and we can help to improve your body’s ability to tolerate your low tolerance items and even to correct the allergies so that your body no longer reacts to them.

The procedures are and non-invasive and will be carried out in a programme that is specific to you.

At the end of your treatment we will tell you when it is safe to re-introduce the items from your results. We may also advise other lifestyle or dietary changes.

What do you test?

We currently testing for over 560 different items, these include:
  • 200 Foods and Alcohols
  • Over 50 Food Additives
  • Food Phenolic Compounds
  • Over 50 Pollens, Dusts and Moulds
  • 115 Industrial Chemicals and Inhalants
  • Fragrancing Chemicals
  • Personal Care ingredients
  • 75 Pesticides
  • 25 Common Metals

The list has regular updates and contains most common items. Please feel welcome to brings small samples of any items, including medications, you feel may be effecting you.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your situation or if you would like any other information


About Ben

I began with an early interest in natural healing when I was introduced to the benefits of crystal healing and aromatherapy at the age of 15. As my personal interests in these fields continued, I gradually developed a very strong personal belief that there was a very natural harmonic way of healing and supporting our lives. While looking for a way to resolve my own health problems of psoriasis and allergic rhinitis, I was introduced to Kinesiology and the interests that had been developed were given a very simple and powerful organising structure which brought them all together beautifully.

Finding Kinesiology was like turning a big light on, creating motivational and passional forces that initiated a change in career and the development of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual lifestyle that I had known was possible, but hadn’t been able to make a reality until now. Further study in Integral Theory and Bowen Technique really helped to expand and develop my model of balance, integration and wellness.

This passion for the system has led me to train and practice Kinesiology up to advanced levels as well as train in the additional skills of Body BioEnergetics, Scott Protocol, Nutritional BioEnergetics, Intrusive Energies and the causative analysis course 16P’s. I am also a qualified Bowen Practitioner registered with the European College of Bowen Studies. To complement and support this I have also done study in Assimilation Kinesiology, Geopathic Stress, Allergies, Sekhem Healing (Advanced level), Vibrational Essences, Aroma Therapy and Thermal Auricular Therapy and most recently have been studying Positional release Therapy and Integral Theory. I also continue my personal learning and experience in nutrition, sacred geometry, Taoist Internal Alchemy, shamanism, naturopathy and herbology, colour and sound therapy and homeopathy.

My enthusiasm for helping people unlock their limiting patterns so they can move forward and allow themselves to shine will be felt in each session. The process is not only about the technical methods and data but also the development of our selves as emotive and spiritual beings. Our learning experiences should be enjoyable and enlightening with an understanding of how we relate to them. Be inspired to change for the better through a journey of knowing yourself.
