Kinesiology comes from the Greek word kineses meaning “movement”. It is a complementary holistic therapy which uses muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body. Muscle testing removes all of the guess work, it’s the language Kinesiologists use to communicate with the body and identify what is needed to improve health and wellbeing. Kinesiology is a non-intrusive, holistic, natural health therapy which helps support and manage health, wellbeing and emotional issues. Treatments are safe, effective, drug-free and are suitable for all ages.

Kinesiology is an accurate and safe way to identify food sensitivities. Knowing which foods are having a negative impact on your body is a key step into finding the root cause of your problems. Once a food sensitivity is identified, kinesiology can also identify what nutrition would help your body to eventually tolerate the food again. Kinesiology can also be used to identify deficiencies and which supplements might be required to rebalance the body. However, nutrition is Just one dimension to kinesiology, it can work to identify and correct imbalances in all the systems of the body and also looking at the emotional and mental aspects of the self.

When your mind and body are fully balanced you may find that many emotional and physical ailments disappear and you have new lease of life.

  • Low energy levels

  • Headaches

  • Eczema and Asthma

Karen Thrush

Karen Thrush began her training in Systemic Kinesiology in 2008, she is highly respected in her field and now teaches beginners kinesiology courses on behalf of The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology.

Digestion and food sensitivities are by far the most common issues Karen helps with, as digestion has such a huge impact on all other functions of the body. During the session Kinesiology  will identify which foods may be causing you a problem and also which nutritional supplements will help your body to recover. Stress related issues are another area Karen often helps to rebalance within her work. Karen uses many techniques to help clients release tension and manage stress with Bach Flower Remedies playing an important part in this process.  Karen’s sessions will help you release any stress which may be hindering your health and balance your meridian energies which will then help to facilitate your healing.

After identifying exactly what support the body needs through muscle testing, a variety of treatments are used to fully balance the mind and body including; nutrition, emotional work, lymphatic massage and electrical corrections.
