What is Kinesiology?
A remarkable system which enables a practitioner to deal with a wide range of issues both physical and emotional. It has its origins in manual muscle assessment and chiropractic techniques from the 1940s, and 1960s, which were then combined with other energy systems such as Chinese acupuncture. Kinesiologists use the art of muscle checking as a biofeedback technique to determine and correct “imbalances” in the body. (Krebs, O’Neill McGowan, 2014)
Each session is an individual journey between my client and myself (whatever age) as we navigate and explore the factors creating the key issues and then apply the best therapeutic techniques for that situation.
Educational Kinesiology is a model designed by Dr Paul Dennison, ( US) which honours the learner and supports that individual to become more receptive to learning new skills. It is goal based, movement based, and uses many protocols including the well known Brain Gym® Movements
Developmental Kinesiology works with to integrate retained primitive reflexes which can interfere with many aspects of learning and to ensure that postural reflexes are established.
Janet also draws upon a range of other treatment modalities as required, such as Touch for Health Kinesiology, , stress release/ emotional diffusion/sabotage clearing and Rhythmic Movement Training.
The Brain And Neuro Plasticity . - Dr Paul Dennison says that ‘We learn to move and move to learn’. Every time we move we change the brain.
Research has now shown that the brain never stops changing. ‘Neuroplasticity’ is the term used to describe the capacity of the brain to change with learning.
• At the beginning of life: when the immature brain organises itself.
• In case of brain injury: to compensate for lost functions or maximize remaining functions.
• Throughout life: whenever something new is learned and memorized.
• In order for new neural connections to be made, the brain’s pathways are stimulated through activity.
