What is Kinesiology and how can it help you?

Just like your fingerprint every individual is unique.

Kinesiology is a holistic system of natural health care grounded in anatomy and physiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It uses your muscles (called muscle testing) to detect and correct various imbalances of the various aspects of your body.

These include the emotional, structural and biochemical aspects of you. Therefore, any problem or issue that you present with could have an underlying component of one or all of these.

For Example: a new mother presenting with low back pain may have a structural component of weakness in the core musculature, an emotional issue of feeling “unsupported” by her friends and a biochemical imbalance where she is deficient in magnesium and dehydrated.

Kinesiology then balances these using a variety of energetic techniques, and recommendations are made for strengthening and addressing each issue.  This approach works with you as an individual to restore your balance.

The most common causes of imbalance in the body come from trauma, illness, accidents and stress! Often stressors in the body can accumulate over time until a point is reached where symptoms may appear.

Kinergetics Kinesiology

Kinergetics is a stream of kinesiology founded by Phillip Rafferty which combines more traditional approaches with the healing energy of reiki. It has been useful for those who suffer from:

  • Chronic Pain

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Trauma

  • Fibromyalgia

  • TMJ pain

  • Heavy Metal Toxicity

It can be helpful for many other ailments

It goes deep very quickly, and many clients will speak of big shifts in their healing after only a session or two.

It also gives you conscious awareness of the underlying reasons for your problem so that you can take meaningful action in your life.  Kinergetics is unique in that its primary focus is getting your body out of the fight/flight response and improving hydration so that your body’s innate healing ability is restored.

The connections between trauma, dehydration, various nutrient deficiencies and consequently pain and other chronic syndromes have been established with this modality. We simply cannot ignore the influence of  our past or current stress on our health.

Please note that kinesiology does not diagnose or treat any diseases, it balances energy and it is recommended to see your GP if you have any concerns.

Both my husband and I have been seeing Amanda now for almost 10 years – she is very professional and is able to diagnose the real issues quickly. Amanda also has a deep knowledge of the body and knows exactly what type of exercises and rehab to give you. I always feel great improvement once I have seen her and know I am back on the road to recovery. There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t even walk but Amanda really helped me through those difficult times. I would recommend her to anybody.


I have suffered from chronic back spasms ever since i had my second baby. I am happy to say after seeing Amanda and have some Kinesiology my lower back pain diminished very quickly and I am now back to normal and even signing up for the gym. I thoroughly recommend Amanda to all of my friends and family.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for your treatments. I’ve had great results with you as a Physiotherapist & even longer lasting wellness with the combination of all the modalities you practice. I always come away from my treatments feeling amazing. Also after all the years of trying to conceive we are pregnant with our first baby. I believe the balancing we did around conception helped us in a big way. Thank you


Amanda was able to help me see the things contributing to my pain which was more than just physical. This was very surprising and refreshing to me. My job has a lot of inherent stress and I definitely appreciate the tools and process Amanda uses.
