Can kinesiology help with anxiety?

Animal Kinesiology

Our pets can also benefit from a kinesiology session. They show us unconditional love to the point that they often absorb and remove stress from their owners, and take it on themselves. They can mirror the emotions, behaviours, reactions and energy of their owners, or perhaps they may have experienced trauma or abuse before they became part of your family. If they can’t discharge this negative energy it can cause emotional stress, physical symptoms, unusual behaviours and disease within their bodies.

Kinesiology can allow us to tap into their bodies and find out exactly what they need in order to clear this stress and allow them to return to their true nature of pure unconditional love.

The bonus is, that animals do not have the same level of emotional stress or conditioning, so they can respond very quickly with fewer sessions required.

What can kinesiology help?

The list is endless, but kinesiology can help with:

  • excessive barking,
  • pulling on the lead,
  • anti-social behaviour,
  • anxiety,
  • depression,
  • excessive clinginess,
  • fussy eating,
  • digestive issues,
  • and many more.

How does a session work?

Kinesiology can be performed through a surrogate, so the majority of my sessions are done on the owner themselves, rather than having the animal come to the session. You just need to bring in a photo of your furry friend. In some cases, it may be helpful to bring your pet to the session, or for me to attend your home. Pricing for home visits will be negotiated based on travel time required.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a way of letting your body and soul do the talking when it comes to finding the underlying cause of dysfunction or imbalances within your body. The symptoms that you are experiencing are your body’s way of communicating to you that something isn’t quite right, and kinesiology can help you to get to the root cause of those symptoms. Quite often it identifies causes that the mainstream medical system has failed to consider, such as past trauma or underlying emotional stress.

Our mind and body are always talking to each other and influences each other. The problem is that a lot of this communication is happening on a subconscious level (approximately 95% of our day), so trying to unravel what is going on can feel impossible. By tapping into your subconscious through muscle testing, we can get the answers without having to logic our way through them.

Gentle muscle monitoring is used to follow the trail of where the stress is being held in your body, as well as show us how your body wants to correct and remove those stressors. By unravelling ingrained negative patterns and removing blockages, we can allow the body’s self-healing abilities to operate as they were always intended to do. My kinesiology clients have experienced profound improvements in their physical health, as well as in their mental and emotional wellbeing following their sessions.

Who would benefit from a kinesiology session?

If you suffer from any of the following, than kinesiology can help you:

  • chronic pain or illness
  • stress
  • relationship issues
  • headaches or migraines
  • digestive disorders
  • hormonal imbalances
  • anxiety or depression
  • learning difficulties
  • autoimmune conditions
  • insomnia
  • adrenal fatigue
  • food intolerances or allergies
  • low immune system
  • phobias
  • needing clarity
  • money blocks
  • self-esteem and worthiness
  • and many more

How does a kinesiology session work?

Your initial appointment will begin with a detailed discussion about your health and lifestyle, and what you are hoping to achieve from your kinesiology session.

After this you will lie on the treatment table so that I can use muscle monitoring (typically on your forearm) to assess what your body is ready to shift, where the root cause of your symptoms are, and how your body wants to begin unravelling them. The tools that I use to correct imbalances in your body can be varied and differ from treatment to treatment. They may include bush flower essences, acupressure points/meridians, craniosacral therapy techniques, foot reflexology, balancing chakras, energy healing, clearing emotions, reconciling past lives and many more. Sometimes just the awareness of the underlying cause is enough for your body to start unwinding it.

All therapies are gentle and non-invasive.

How will I feel after a kinesiology session?

Following a session you should generally feel more calm, clear and focused. You should have an amazing night sleep and you may notice some improvements in symptoms (such as a reduction in digestive symptoms or reduction in pain).

However it is also not abnormal to feel out of sorts for up to 24 hours as your body readjusts to its new equilibrium and can result in what appears to be a worsening of symptoms (such as a restless night sleep or upset digestive system). This is actually a good sign that things have changed and is just part of the healing journey. These symptoms should settle down within 24 hours. Keeping up your water intake for 48 hours can help any shifted energy to continue to clear and move through with ease.

How many sessions will you need?

If you have had an illness for a long time, it is rarely going to be remedied by one treatment (although sometimes it can be). There is usually more than one layer to your health issues, and each time one layer is removed the body needs to integrate the changes before it is ready to show us the next. To receive the most benefit from your sessions, it is recommended to book at least 3 appointments upfront (1-2 weeks apart). Once your symptoms begin to lessen, you can then move to less regular appointments. However, after experiencing the benefits of Kinesiology, you will want to keep kinesiology as part of your regular mind, body and spirit self-care practice.

To speed up your healing, I offer a package of Kinesiology Package which includes your initial 90 minutes session, 2 follow-up 60 minute sessions, as well as weekly check-ins and ongoing support between sessions. This designated time can be used for coaching or a quick distance healing and is only available for Kinesiology Packages paid for in full.

Do online kinesiology sessions really work?

Kinesiology can be performed over distance just as effectively as if you are here in person, as I can muscle test my own body as a surrogate for yours. This can be explained simply by the fact that everything in the world is energy, and all energy is connected regardless of space or time (the more complex explanation requires an understanding of quantum physics!).

Online sessions are great for people who do not live locally, or cannot come in person due to health reasons. Bookings can be made on my calendar by selecting the ‘Telehealth’ option under ‘Appointment Type’. Note that these sessions will need to be paid for at the time of booking the appointment.

“Today’s Online Session with Karen was really powerful and clearing. I’ve been holding a negative life draining belief for the last 6 years. Today’s session shed so much light, clarity and a healthier path moving forward in such an easy and nurturing way. Karen’s approach offers a fast and effective way to heal the “baggage”. So grateful for today’s session. I feel lighter, clearer and deeply satisfied that my issue has been released and I can enjoy a life on the other side of it! Highly Recommend!” Nadia, 2023

“Karen is very caring and professional, and I have always felt very comfortable in her presence and in her space. I have tried numerous therapies with Karen, including kinesiology, lymphatic drainage and remedial massage and I have always left feeling fantastic and relaxed. Would highly recommend!”  Kayla, August 2019

“Karen has made such a difference in my life. I’ve been seeing her for a few years for massage and over the past 8 months for kinesiology. Her abilities to help overcome emotional and mental barriers has made such a difference. At first I was sceptical but within the first session I noticed a difference. Her kind and calming manner makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend Karen.”  Ilona, August 2021

Reiki

Reiki is a healing technique where ‘life force energy’ is channelled into your body to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Life-force energy is channelled through the therapist and into the client to clear any blockages that may exist in the flow of energy throughout the body. These blockages may be causing pain, disfunction or illness to exist within the body.

Pamela Miles, author of Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide and leading US exponent on the integration of Reiki into mainstream healthcare facilities, writes:

“… studies that have been done so far have showed promising results for using Reiki to reduce stress, anxiety and pain. The data include objective measures (decreased stress hormones, improved immune indicators, decreased heart rate and improved blood pressure) as well as subjective improvements in anxiety and pain.”

The therapist may follow a set pattern of hand placements over the body, or may be led by intuition to where the treatment is needed the most. Reiki can be performed as a stand-alone treatment, or can be incorporated into other massage treatments. As a stand-alone treatment it can be performed fully-clothed, without the use of oil, and may even be used without physically touching the client’s body (hands may hover over the body, sending energy via the clients energetic field).

In my practice I have used Reiki to assist those with headaches, stress and anxiety, chronic pain and other dysfunctions within the body that cannot be assisted by conventional massage. Clients report feeling a deep sense of peace and relaxation during and after the treatment.

It also combines extremely well with Acupressure treatments, as both modalities focus on improving the flow of life force energy (or Qi) throughout the body.

Reflexology

Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic healing technique based on treating ‘reflexes’ in the feet, hands and ears which correspond to congestion or tension in glands, organs and other parts of the body.

Reflexology is non-intrusive, indirect method of healing parts of the body (such as organs) that can not normally be effected by massage generally. The treatment is often very relaxing as well as providing a well needed boost of energy to the entire body.

Reflexology treatment can:

  • Relieve stress and tension
  • Improve blood supply and promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses (thereby improving the flow of blood and nutrients to all parts of the body including organs)
  • Reduce toxicity
  • Improve immunity, and
  • Help the body to achieve homeostasis.

The treatment can be undertaken fully clothed, with only the shoes and socks removed. The pressure used is firm enough so that the feet do not feel ‘ticklish’, yet not so deep that the client feels pain.

Over the next 48 hours the client may notice a subtle clearing of toxins from congested systems as they are processed and eliminated. This is a good sign that the treatment has made positive changes to the body’s health.

Acupressure

Acupressure

Acupressure

Like acupuncture but without the needles, acupressure targets points throughout the body to stimulate the body’s self-curative abilities. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using these points for thousands of years to treat illness and pain. Qi, or ‘life-force energy’ flows through the body following various specific pathways called ‘meridians’. Blockages in this flow, or an imbalance of Yin and Yang energy, can cause illness or pain to manifest in the area of the blockage, or somewhere along the same meridian pathway. By treating these blockages, energy is able to flow freely through the body, enabling the body to heal itself.

Acupressure can treat a myriad of symptoms, such as:

  • lower back pain,
  • headaches,
  • emotional stress,
  • sinus dysfunction (allergies, congestion, snoring etc),
  • digestive disorders, and
  • can assist women prepare for labour, resulting in better birth outcomes.

Acupressure can be applied as a standalone treatment specifically designed for you, or points may be utilised during a normal remedial massage as an additional technique to assist muscle tension and other dysfunctions. As a standalone treatment, this can be carried out fully clothed.

Finger pressure is applied to the points for between 1-3 minutes, either alone or in conjunction with other related points. Pressure used is very light, and in many cases can be just as effective as trigger point therapy for relaxing tension in a muscle without the pain that is usually involved in this treatment.

Acupressure can be used throughout pregnancy to assist with the treatment of pregnancy related discomfort (headaches, back and hip pain, heartburn, leg cramps, oedema etc). However it is important to note that there are some acupressure points that must be avoided until near the very end of the pregnancy, and therefore acupressure should only be administered by a qualified therapist.
