How I started this journey

I started my journey in Kinesiology thanks to the needs of one of my children. My daughter was about 18months and had a violent, dry and very itchy eczema on both of her arms. I didn’t want to start her on cortisone so young. We were working with a homeopath which helped, but didn’t assist her body to deal with the eczema completely. The homeopath felt that the eczema may be an allergic reaction. If that was the case, I wanted to know “To what?!” … and I wasn’t going to have the patience to try changing the washing powder this week, try cutting out flour next week… I wanted to know the answer, and then, well, I would try to manage to deal with it. I was referred to a kinesiologist, and, although I had some misgivings about meeting a weird hippy in a turban, it was worth the risk if I could just know how to make the eczema better.

After presenting the (very normal) lady with my reason for being there, she tested my daughter (using me as a surrogate) and said that it was nothing that I was putting in her or on her, it was an emotional reaction. She rubbed here and held there and together we worked out what was bothering my daughter, and after the second session, she said “We’ll see if we need another.” I was well and truly flabegasted… and didn’t believe that there was any possibility it could be this easy… in fact my answer was… “Well, what do you expect it to do? Go away?”

Despite my disbelief, it did! And now I was confused… how could this possibly work?… and is it okay?… the results were good, but this was weird for someone brought up under Western medicine! And so began my journey… and I grow in respect for the science and art that lies behind kinesiology every day.

You Don’t Have to Change the World

Ben, a previously enthusiastic 5yr old, didn’t want to go to school and every morning would cry and perform. The teacher had been keeping an eye on him and trying to find out what may have caused the change but was equally as uncertain as the parents. He had friends, enjoyed playing and was an enthusiastic learner. We listened to the story that emerged through the kinesiology process, and became aware that Ben was being bullied by a friend who was battling with his own emotional expression. Although the bullying had started out physically, it was now a mental and emotional bullying (which was why the adults were battling to pick it up).

For Ben the challenge that he was facing was linked to a desperate need for acceptance and a fear of rejection. The kinesiology process offered Ben the assistance he needed and the change in the playground dynamic after the balance was remarkable.

Ben now had the courage and self-assurance to choose to play with other children, instead of desperately seeking out the acceptance of the bully, and this child started to understand that Ben wasn’t going to accept poor behaviour.

This proved to be a learning experience for both children but, most importantly, Ben was assisted to manage the challenges in his own life and set up a pattern that stopped the behaviour that was causing him difficulty.


Specialised kinesiology is something that many people have little experience of. It is a broad and diverse field that includes many different ways of working, and that doesn’t help the confusion that people feel when trying to research it.

The one common feature is that a kinesiologist will use one or more muscles to indicate where the stress is held. These videos give you just a small insight into kinesiology:
