What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a comprehensive and effective complementary therapy that strengthens your body’s natural healing ability so that you can achieve optimum health, wellbeing and vitality. Kinesiology does this by detecting and correcting the physical, emotional, mental and other imbalances that inhibit body function, performance and well being.

Kinesiology can help you:

  • perform at your best
  • attain better health and happiness
  • release self-sabotaging patterns
  • take control and be the master of your life
  • feel good about yourself and your life
  • healthily release and manage your stress
  • maintain abundant energy and vitality
  • get more out of other therapies/treatments you receive


How does Kinesiology work and why is it effective?

Kinesiology (kinn-easy-ology) comes from the word kinetic, meaning moving energy. It originated in the 1960’s from the chiropractic field and has effectively adapted many western and eastern therapy techniques and philosophies such as: anatomy and physiology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, chiropractic, massage and muscle therapies, acupuncture, homeopathy and more.

Kinesiology is a therapy that goes beyond the levels of many other treatments and therapies. It is distinctive in its ability to identify and address the underlying causes of stress and imbalance, whether it is from past or present traumas, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, foods, chemicals or even inherited traits.


Kinesiology uses gentle muscle ‘testing’ or ‘monitoring’ as a tool for identifying the underlying cause of your problem or stress and the best therapy technique to correct the imbalance. This simple and effective process can identify and resolve all types of health or life issues, whether they relate to your body, mind or spiritual wellbeing. The type of techniques used will depend on what is best for your unique circumstances. They could include:

  • muscle, meridian, vertebral or lymphatic work
  • releasing emotional and other stresses from the past and present
  • reprogramming unhealthy and limiting stress/survival responses embedded in the body
  • balancing sub-conscious blocks to your healing, happiness and goal achievement
  • desensitising and resetting the body’s immune system and its response to allergens
  • identifying and releasing self sabotaging thoughts, beliefs and behaviours and more

Kinesiology is gentle, safe and non-intrusive and enhances the benefits of other medical treatments and natural therapies.


Who can benefit from Kinesiology?

Any person of any age (new born to the mature aged) and with any need or disability can benefit from Kinesiology.

Kinesiology can be used to improve performance, education, sports, business, health, emotional and physical wellbeing, the achievement of goals and the success of other treatments. Kinesiology can do this because it creates balance and harmony in all functions of the body no matter what the problem or goal may be. Once the body is in balance around the problem then the body is better able to heal itself and achieve the desired outcomes.

What to Expect During a Consultation

Generally, a consultation or ‘balance’ as it is commonly known, involves initial discussion with Diane to clarify the problem and define the goal you wish to achieve. It will involve laying clothed on a massage table, but if this is not possible, sitting or standing is just as effective. Diane will then use gentle muscle testing to detect imbalances and stress and also the priority therapy techniques required.


Generally, the therapy techniques involve holding, rubbing, massaging or tapping meridian, lymphatic, trigger and reflex points, essential oils, nutritional supplements, affirmations, visualisations, emotional stress diffusion, neuro-linguistic balancing and more.


The ‘balance’ will also involve discussion with Diane to help you understand what is happening and why. Along the way you will gain wonderful insights about your life and your body and how you can become healthier, happier and more fulfilled. You will nearly always have strategies for support and reinforcement to take home with you.


You will be treated as an individual and with integrity, care, respect and confidentiality. A Kinesiology ‘balance’ is a unique process for each person and thus the treatments you receive will be specific to your needs.


The healing and benefits that can come from Kinesiology are often subtle but profound and sometimes these benefits can unfold over a period of days, weeks or months. An often heard comment from new clients is: “I don’t know what Diane did, but it seemed to work because I feel better, more relaxed and freer”.



Planning your time and finances is an important part of the healing process. A good guide is to expect 3 sessions over 6-8 weeks, although wonderful things can and do happen in one session.
