kinesiology for kids
Kinesiology is a natural therapy that relies on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to assess energy and body function throughout the mind/body system.
The modality primarily relies on muscle testing, which is a natural bio-feedback mechanism that supplies information via nerve pathways and meridian systems. The muscle, which is usually the arm, is placed in a position of optimal contraction, with the aim to shorten and straighten the muscle fibres to identify a stress.
By using muscle reflect testing and applying a range of non-invasive and gentle, yet powerful techniques, Kinesiologists are able to instantly access holistic information held by our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind holds our memories, thought patterns and beliefs, and once tapped into this, Kinesiologists are able to identify and locate energy blockages, stresses and imbalances within our physical and metaphysical being.
who can benefit from kinesiology?
Anyone and everyone can benefit from a Kinesiology session. The aim is to clear stress, energetic imbalances and find clarity for the individual.
As individuals, we all experience some form of stress – whether it be big or small, it doesn’t matter, how our bodies experience it and hold it will show up in the same way. Our bodies begin to speak to us to show that the stress/pain that we have been through is now repressed or pushed down in our system. When ignored, this repressed stress/pain can begin to show up as physical or mental pain; causing spiritual, emotional and mental imbalances felt throughout the body.
Working with Ash, you will be able to move through these old emotions, blockages, belief systems, patterns and behaviours that are holding you back and keeping you from moving forward.
how is my approach different for kids?
My aim for every session with children is to build trust from the start. By creating an environment where the child feels safe, they can share their innermost feelings and thoughts with ease. Some children will open up straight away, whilst others can take a little longer to feel comfortable to share. Both are welcome, as I use mind AND body techniques to clear stress, and therefore sessions can be tailored to each individual child.
how does the appointment work with kids?
For each appointment, I will ask for the parent to come into the room for the first 10 minutes, just to ensure the child feels comfortable. All I ask is that you as the parent are understanding, patient and allow the child the chance to speak up about their feelings.
If the child is 5 years or older, it works quite similarly to that of a session with an adult.
We spend 15 minutes at the start of the session identifying the main causes of stress, acknowledging the emotions being felt and empowering them to figure out how it is they want to be feeling.
If the child is 4 or under, I tend to use the parent as the surrogate. Surrogating energy means I can muscle test on the parent’s muscle to tap into their child’s energy field – all of this is done by asking permission first.
As well as using remedies, I will also incorporate a lot of breathing techniques and energy healing to help regulate and calm the nervous system. This creates an environment for the subconscious to relax and bring forward any stress that we can speak to, clear, shift and rebalance.
how can the imbalances, stress or pain be cleared?
A child may have imbalances in their mind, body or spirit that will need certain remedies to bring back into balance. A block or imbalance can manifest in the form of physical pain, mental pain, dis-ease, negative thoughts, anxiety or stress. By using quick and specific muscle testing, we can identify the underlying cause of the stress.
Some of the stressors I can help children overcome and move through are:
Understand their feelings and surroundings
My main priority through each session is to make the child realise that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with them. I allow the child to be involved in each session, allow them to feel heard and nurture them to trust that they can start believing in themselves. My role in each session is simple – I guide the child to feel balanced, safe, nurtured, and secure in their feelings.
Quite often, the parent will book a session to tackle their own healing and how that may be coming through in their relationship with their child. As 95% of our body/mind operates from the subconscious level, it is extremely beneficial to have a non-judgemental, caring practitioner to guide you through shifting these unwanted beliefs, patterns, and behaviours.
I feel very lucky to work with families and their children, as I get to witness pure growth and transformation throughout the whole family lineage. For me, I find the shifts happen quickly with children, as they just want to feel joy and continue in their lives feeling playful and curious.
