Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement. It should not be confused with the pseudoscience applied kinesiology (AK). While an understanding of kinesiology is fundamental for the analysis and treatment of problems in the musculoskeletal system, it is not - unlike "applied kinesiology" (AK) - a method for the treatment or diagnosis of illness.
Kinesiology encompasses human anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, biochemistry, biomechanics, exercise psychology and sociology of sport. The relationship between the quality of movement and overall human health is also studied.
Kinesiological information is applied in such fields as physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, exercise physiology, kinesiotherapy, massage therapy, ergonomics, physical education and athletic coaching. The approach of these applications can be therapeutic, preventive, or high-performance.
The application of kinesiology can also incorporate knowledge from other academic disciplines such as psychology, sociology, cultural studies, ecology, evolutionary biology, and anthropology. Related interdisciplinary fields in motor skills, skills research are graphonomics, i.e. the study of handwriting movement control and the study of motor control in speech.
The study of kinesiology is often part of the curriculum for some of the areas in which kinesiological information is used (akin to a medical study - see sports medicine).
There are some professional physical therapists who are fully credentialed in some jurisdictions as "Registered Kinesiologists." In this case, the word "kinesiology" is being used as a synonym for "physical therapy."
Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body's structural, chemical, emotional or other energy, to establish the body's priority healing needs, and to evaluate energy changes brought about by a broad spectrum of both manual and non-manual therapeutic procedures.
This technique uses the body's own biofeedback system via muscle testing to promote health. The aim is to restore balance where there are nutritional deficiencies and to create wellness at a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Applied Kinesiology is a form of chiropractic introduced in 1964. It is a diagnostic method for determining health status through muscle testing and also a therapy wherein the practioner applies light finger-tip massage to pressure points on the body or head in order to stimulate or relax key muscles.
Nemo-Link a newly introduced therapy also includes a muscle test for diagnosis then disciplines the brain to assess and restore balance of the body and skeletal structure.
Clinical Kinesiology was developed by an Alan Beardell 20 years after applied kinesology was introduced. Precise manipulations called hand-modes are performed on the skull or arm muscles to heal musculosketel injuries, sports injuries, back and spinal pain.
One of my clients is a kinesiologist who has developed his own system of tests which begin by determining if the problem is based in the spiritual, emotional, or physical bodies, or all of the above.
He does not need to touch the body of the patient. He connects the index finger and thumb of his right hand. Then he places the index finger and thumb of his left hand into an interlocking circle with his right hand.
Silently he goes through a system of checks and balances on the patient's body by asking questions and getting answers based on the strength of the connection between the fingers as he asks each question.
For example - he could ask about a liver problem ----> tug at the circles created by his fingers. If the circles remain closed it that would indicate a positive answer vs. the fingers separating which would mean a negative answer.
He does this procedure quickly - guided by Spirit as he works.
Once he determines the problem/ problems he continues on with the healing often combining it with homeopathic remedies.
He believes that Kinesiology links with the electro-magnetic energies of the body to bring them into balance.
A similar technique involves the patient standing in front of the practioner his arm extended to his side.
The practioner will ask questions. As he does - he will press down on the entended arm. Resistance to lowering the arm will have one meaning - while a firmly extended arm will give a different response.
Try it with a friend. If he can push your arm down easily the answer should be either YES or NO - determine by the person you are working with.
