Definition of Treatment

Kinesiology is a dynamic modality of encompassing ancient wisdom from eastern traditions and modern knowledge from western science. A form of energy balancing that combines the knowledge of Chinese acupuncture, modern chiropractic, osteopathy, nutrition, psychology and the subtle energy bodies (chakras). It promotes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health emphasising health maintenance, disease prevention, client education and client responsibility.

Kinesiology uses gentle manual muscle monitoring to gain direct feedback from the body to identify underlying stress patterns and their causes. Using acupoints, neurolymphatic & neurovascular reflexes, affirmations, exercise & energetic techniques to correct these imbalances, Kinesiology causes positive change to take place on a conscious and energetic level.

The muscles are used as a biofeedback system to identify the underlying cause of blockage from the person’s subconscious mind via the nervous system. Muscle monitoring is used to access information from the brain, in relation to the problem and also guides the practitioner to choose the correction required in order to stimulate the person’s innate healing capacity and supporting their physiology to return to normal function.

Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms recognising that the flow of energy within the body not only relates to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that make the body a living ever changing organism. These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body’s overall state of structural, chemical and emotional balance. In this way kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook.

The assessment must include the development of a specific treatment plan as to the best course of treatment for the patient’s condition/injury. This treatment plan forms the basis of the clinical notes. These notes must be consistent with the ATMS Code of Conduct, the Unregistered Health Practitioner Act and the additional requirements set by the health funds.
