"What is Kinesiology?"

Originating in the 1960's, KInesiology combines western techniques and eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

A fundamental premise of Kinesiology is that the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing its best to care for itself, but that sometimes it needs to be helped into a better position to achieve this care.

Kinesiology also recognises that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that go to make the body a living, feeling being.

These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body's overall state of structural, chemical or emotional balance. In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities may overlook.

Kinesiology looks beyond symptoms. Kinesiology does not treat named diseases. Nor does it diagnose them. Kinesiology is concerned with the imbalances in the body's energy system. In this respect, Kinesiology has close links with the Acupuncture concept of energy flow.

Where, as the result of injury, emotional trauma, nutritional or other unresolved stress, the energy flow is interrupted, the whole body is affected. The exact nature of blockage in the energy flow can be more closely identified by 'muscle testing'. Acupressure massage, light touch and other simple correction skills are used to restore muscle 'balance', which has a flow-on effect into the total body energy.

Kinesiology is often called 'muscle balancing' or 'energy balancing' helping the body into a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by 'balancing' its energies. Kinesiology is not limited to dealing with ailments. Energy balancing brings a person closer to achieving any goal of their choice - reduced stress and pain, improved performance at school, work, home, in sport, relationships, learning or coping with life generally.

This energy balancing that is at the heart of Kinesiology may involve dealing with one or more of the stress factors: identifying a nutritional lack or excess, clearing a negative emotional component, relieving pain, stimulating the integration of muscle groups, improving mental and physical coordination.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the unbelievable changes you and your unique skills have brought to my life. After having the combination of Kinesiology, Bach Flower remedies and counselling I understood the full benefits of what you are offering. I feel more in tune with my emotions, my physical wellbeing and the chemical changes that occur within and outside my body, which influence the world I choose to have around me. I feel more in control of the energy flow within, my attitude to others and the stressful issues I am facing during this continuous journey through life.
Thank you Katha!

Katha has been my healing angel who helped me at a time, that was a huge turning point in my life. I have just resigned from a job that I had held for 17 years and the transition from a very stressful work phase to having a 3 months break left me feeling like a passenger on the Titanic without a life jacket.

I immediately felt the benefits as my stress levels decreased and my life again began to have some purpose. The Kinesiology sessions I had over the last 18 months helped me deal with major issues in my life, peeling away layers of unresolved stress with each session leaving me more positive, and at peace with myself. The most profound result was in relation to my Type II diabetes. My blood sugar readings dropped considerably to an all time low and my sugar cravings are a thing of the past.

“I am writing to confirm the positive personal results I experienced during the short kinesiology balance you gave me whilst at the workshop.

As explained to you, I had an operation in November 2003 to remove my right fallopian tube. The operation was performed via laparoscopy and though this is meant to be minimally invasive, what they actually do to your body during this procedure is quite horrific.

As a result of the operation, I ended up with continuous pain in my right abdomen. So much so that my quality of life was being compromised. I am normally an active person – I couldn’t even walk a short distance without being in agony. Continuous visits to my gynaecologist (who performed the operation) left me feeling more and more in despair. He couldn’t give me a reason for the pain and in March this year he prescribed anti-depressants – not because I was depressed but because these were supposedly good for numbing nerve pain. Against my better judgement and beliefs, I took one tablet, which left me feeling so absolutely revolting that I vowed never to take another one again.

On return to the gynaecologist and stating my experience with anti-depressants, he then prescribed Epilem. On questioning, he finally admitted that it was an anti-epileptic drug!!! I said I had never suffered from epilepsy and he said that he was prescribing it because “it was also good for nerve pain”. I said that I refused to take something that would affect the chemicals in my brain and that didn’t really seem appropriate for my pain.

Absolutely disillusioned and frustrated I left his office wondering was this my fate – live with constant pain for the rest of my life or take some hideous drugs with who knows what side effects. My faith in the medical profession is totally non existent after this fiasco!

In April, I decided to visit a doctor of Chinese Medicine and he gave me herbs to strengthen my body. Those these lifted my spirits and eased the pain somewhat, my life (and the lives of the people I love) were being greatly affected.

As you know, I was suffering with a migraine on the first weekend of the workshop (the migraines had become a lot worse with my constant worry) which is why you offered a quick treatment. However, you did a lot more than help ease the migraine. The pain in my abdomen disappeared totally for the first time since November and it’s still gone. I don’t know exactly what you did but it has convinced me of the power of kinesiology. Because its cessation was so sudden, I keep waiting for it to come back (I know I shouldn’t!).

I am walking 4kms again and doing other exercises – all without pain. My family is happy to have the “happy and healthy” wife/mum back.

I can’t thank you enough Katha. Keep up the good work and good luck in all that you do,
Warmest regards,
Anni Casey

I would like to thank Katha for helping my daughter Monica (age 5) so quickly and effectively after she has suffered from a bout of severe diarrhea for 5 days !! She is usually a very lively and happy child, but she was getting quite lethargic, withdrawn and physically weak. We consulted a local doctor, who prescribed medication for her stomach aches and diarrhea. The medication did nothing to improve her symptoms and I got very concerned about her condition. She wouldn’t talk or interact with me and 2 days after we have consulted the doctor we took her to the hospital, where she stayed overnight. The medical treatment she received at the local hospital did not improve the situation either. She couldn’t keep any food or fluids down and was getting more and more distressed every day.

A friend of mine suggested to see a kinesiologist as a last resort.

Katha’s friendly nature and professionalism put Monica at ease immediately and she felt very calm throughout the whole session, which took only 45 minutes. The results were truly astounding! Three quarters of an hour after our kinesiology session, Monica felt much better, her mood lifted, she started laughing again and was asking for food – the first time in 5 days!!! The symptoms were greatly eased and stopped completely the following day. She had no difficulties with her digestion ever since!

I was amazed and so relieved! I am eternally grateful for helping my daughter to get back on track so quickly and naturally with the power of kinesiology.
