Kinesi What?

A blend of eastern wisdom and western science, kinesiology is becoming more widely accepted, but the therapy is still a bit of an enigma. In short, kinesiology is the study of whole body movement. It encompasses a number of holistic health disciplines and uses the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s wellbeing.

I’ve been seeing a holistic kinesiologist, Merryl Key, regularly for a couple of years. I don’t always need a physical ‘reason’ for my sessions with Merryl – I see them more as general maintenance that enhance my sense of wellbeing and help me work on areas of my life where there may be blockages. Post session, I often feel stagnant energy moving through the body. This sometimes results in an energy hangover, where I can feel down, have a good cry or even feel nauseous, followed later by a sensation of something clearing or shifting, creating a sense of lightness or balance in my body.

Responses to treatments can be strong and it is crucial to find a qualified kinesiologist that you click with.

Always curious, I attended a free one-day introduction to kinesiology at the Australian College of Complementary Medicine (ACCM) on Saturday 5 December. The day was informative without being overwhelming, with great facilitators in a welcoming environment. I‘d highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to find out more about kinesiology.

Find out more at the ACCM website. The college also has a 2-for-1 offer on student clinic sessions at the moment – two sessions for $30 – a bargain!
