Systematic Kinesiology

What is Systematic Kinesiology?

Kinesiology was developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964. It is a way of identifying imbalances someone may have by monitoring their ability to hold their muscles against light pressure. Each muscle is related to an organ, and also to an energy pathway called a meridian.


Finding imbalances

Together the muscle, organ and meridian form a “circuit”. Any chemical, emotional, structural or energetic stresses affecting the circuit can be identified when a muscle tests weak or “spongy”.

Once an imbalance has been found, the kinesiologist uses further muscle tests to see what factors are aggravating the imbalance, and what will help to rebalance it.

Discovering what’s involved and what will help

Each time a relevant factor is introduced the muscles response changes, a bit like a switch. If a muscle is spongy (or “switched off”), and the person suddenly thinks of an emotional stress and the muscle is suddenly strong again, (ie “switches on”), this indicates that particular stress is involved in that imbalance. The same method is applied for nutrition, as well as for structural problems and energetic problems.

Truly holistic treatment

Based on this feedback, the kinesiologist and the client can investigate and discover together what factors are relevant to the imbalance and a treatment plan is devised. This may include nutritional supplements, techniques for emotional stress release, Bach flower remedies, acupressure,gentle structural realignment, chakra balancing, massage of reflex points, as well as lifestyle changes. The treatment you receive depends on the feedback your body gives through the muscle test and about what it needs to return to health.

There is no guess work with Systematic Kinesiology.

Enjoy improved health

Kinesiology practitioners are dedicated to prevention as well as to alleviating the condition. They are able to help clients more effectively if the person is committed improving their health through self help and changes to their health regime. Taking control of your life and enjoying improved health and well-being is something that we can all do.

How many sessions?

This usually depends on your complaint and fully you participate in your own treatment. i.e. making the suggested lifestyle and dietary changes that often form part of your treatment plan. Usually, however, most people feel an improvement in 3 to 6 visits. It is then recommended that you have routine balances 2 or 3 times per year for maintenance.

For children under 5 and for those with limited mobility we normally use a surrogate. This may be a family member or friend, and the surrogate may need to be balanced first.
