During your first appointment the kinesiologist will take a case history from information provided by you about your health, symptoms and diet. You will then be asked to take off your shoes and lie down on a couch. If lying down is difficult, the session can take place with you in a seated position.
The kinesiologist will position your arms, legs or head and apply light pressure to the muscles to determine if there are any imbalances in the body. They may also ask questions or ask you to think of words or phrases. Your responses and the feedback your kinesiologist receives from the muscle testing will determine what course of treatment is recommended.
The kinesiologist may employ massaging
techniques during your session and use essential oils or flower essences. They will discuss this with you before beginning treatment. The techniques your kinesiologist uses are gentle and many people find the experience of kinesiology extremely relaxing.
Once your session has ended, the kinesiologist will discuss the experience with you and suggest nutritional supplements
, dietary changes or exercises that will aid your therapy. They will then recommend a follow-up appointment. The natural remedies and balancing techniques can cause detoxification
in the body and a shift in energy. You may experience headaches
, flu symptoms or diarrhoea
after treatment but this will usually last only a couple of days.
