Can kinesiology help with anxiety?
You wake up in the morning with a knot in your stomach, and a feeling of apprehension about the day ahead. It’s not overwhelming, but it is there. You start running through your mental ‘to-do’ list and the overwhelm continues to grow.
You clam up in social situations, you actively avoid crowds, and even making a simple phone call feel like something you must work yourself up to.
Your racing heart and shallow breathing are a reminder that your body and mind are in a state of constant alertness. You feel like you are constantly just waiting for the other shoe to drop and looking for danger that you believe is waiting for you just around the next corner.
You have learnt to live in this state. This subtle unease that is always present like a low-grade hum. This state of anxiety. This ‘fight or flight’ response. Unaware that the longer your body stays in this stress response, the more likely it is your body will start presenting you with other physical and emotional health issues. Maybe it already has?
You may know why you suffer from it, but like in most cases, you may not. Without knowing what is driving the anxiety, or having the tools to treat it at the core root, it is really hard and near impossible to overcome it for good.
You may have even tried all the usual things that people suggest, like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, or changing your diet, but no amount of meditation (with a monkey mind) or slow deep breathing has been able to give you any long-term relief.
I can tell you that you don’t have to live like this anymore. There is a way of getting to the root cause of the underlying fears driving your constant feelings of anxiety – and that is with Kinesiology.
How Kinesiology works to treat anxiety.
Kinesiology uses muscle testing to find where there may be imbalances or weaknesses within the body. A weak muscle will show where the body is experiencing a stress response. With the right questioning a kinesiologist can use muscle testing to communicate with your subconscious to find the root cause of the stress, and what your body needs to let go of that particular stress response for good. These corrections may target your physical, emotional, mental or spiritual body, but most likely all of the above, to provide a holistic and permanent change to your body’s standard operating procedure.
Maybe your anxiety began when you suffered a traumatic experience in the past? Maybe it is because you have a hormonal imbalance? Maybe your mother was feeling anxious herself while she was pregnant with you? Maybe you suffered a traumatic incident in a past life, or one of your ancestors did? Maybe you have a vitamin or mineral imbalance? If we don’t ask the body directly, we are only guessing at what the cause could be.
An example of this was a client of mine who was sure her anxiety was related to a relationship breakdown, but her body indicated that it actually went further back to when she was only 5 years old and a teacher who had told the entire class that they were all hopeless. An incident in fact that she had completely forgotten about until it came up in the session. Knowing the cause of the anxiety resulted in a very different treatment plan than if we had focused on the relationship breakdown.
Following your kinesiology session, you should feel that situations that used to trigger your anxiety no longer affect you in the same way. You will also feel more able to handle stressful situations that occur in the future. I have had many clients mention that they have walked out of my treatment room already feeling calmer, clearer and go on to report having the best night sleep after their session. Treating the anxiety and lower the ‘fight or flight’ stress response will improve more than your mental health, but can benefit so many more areas of the body. Hormones can rebalance, digestive issues can settle down, blood pressure can lower, chronic pain can reduce, and much more.
