The Do’s & Dont’s of Kinesiology

How Kinesiology Works

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement which uses muscle testing as a Biofeedback way of communicating with your body. Kinesiologists use gentle, applied pressure to a muscle to find out where imbalances and stressors are within your body and understand how to bring balance to that area.  It’s how they identify what the underlying problem is and how to solve it so you can reduce your pain, inflammation, general uncomfortableness and be realigned again.

There are many misconceptions about Kinesiology and here at Health With Heart we aim to educate you further on what we “DO” and “DON’T” do for your health, mind, body, soul and wellness.
