What is Health Kinesiology?
Health Kinesiology is a treatment that uses muscle testing techniques to analyse problems, issues, concerns and life goals combined with acupuncture techniques (minus the needles), to gently and effectively balance the body’s energy systems for optimum health and vitality.
Health Kinesiologists use gentle muscle testing combined with verbal questioning to communicate directly with your body’s energy system. Health Kinesiology muscle testing involves applying gentle pressure on a muscle (commonly your arm) and assessing the response.
- If the muscle locks then the response is “yes”
- If the muscle is malleable or gives way the response is “no”
The body is offered a variety of procedures and is able to select the techniques that will help to restore balance and self-healing by saying ‘yes’ with a locked muscle response.
The techniques could involve:
- The person having a possible allergen placed on them
- The person thinking a specific thought or memory
- Having a magnet/magnets placed on them
- The use of crystals, aromatherapy oils or homeopathic remedies, etc
Throughout the highlighted stress the body regains balance and moves back to a healthier state. No needles are involved and people generally find this a very intriguing and calming experience.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Health Kinesiology are based on the understating that our well being is dependent on the balanced flow of energy to flow around our systems. Many factors can upset this energy such as, psychological stresses, fears, stuck belief patterns and behaviour, phobias, allergens, micro-organisms, environmental toxins, electromagnetic fields and other frequencies. All of these may block the energy causing our energy systems to become imbalanced over a period of time, leading to ill health and sickness.
Who invented Health Kinesiology?
Dr Jimmy Scott’s original training was as a scientist. He has a Ph.D. in psychology, physiological and an awareness in geopathic stress, electro-magnetic pollution and nutrition. He became interested in Kinesiology in the 1970’s and had the basic structure of Health Kinesiology in place by 1981. He has developed an immense system that looks at people as a whole taking into account their emotional, psychological and environmental needs of the physical body.
What happens in a session:
During the session you lie down on a therapy couch wearing loose comfortable clothing. If lying down is not comfortable, you can sit up for the session. Using muscle testing techniques the Health Kinesiologist accesses your body’s sole inner understanding and finds out what is needed to recover and retain balance to feel healthy on the inside and out.
Occasionally, you may only need one appointment, but more often than not people need more. During the first session the Health Kinesiologist will determine how many treatments and the length of time needed between each session. As part of a Health Kinesiology session it may recommend life-style changes, such as nutritional intake, exercise, sleep, rest, meridian toning, positive affirmations, relaxation advice or just having fun. Each session is unique (even for people with the same symptoms) and moves at the pace that you body determines.
Almost everyone from newborn babies to the elderly, the fit, injured, entertainers, athletes, sick and even your pets can benefit from Health Kinesiology.

Life can be challenging and it is not always easy to change the things you want to change—whether that is your health, your job, your relationship or all of these and more. Sometimes we just don’t know where to start and how to keep ourselves motivated. Health Kinesiologists use muscle testing as a way to find out why your physical, emotional, chemical and nutritional systems fell out of balance and how to go about changing them for the better. In a world where we are bombarded by information from other people, Health Kinesiology lets you get information from you. The body is doing its best to communicate with us, via twinges, pains, anxiety etc, and muscle testing enables this communication to solve its problems.
Illness does not arrive suddenly, though it may seem to do so. It is usually the result of a build-up of stress–physical, mental or emotional—leading to imbalances in the body/mind system, which ultimately leads to physical symptoms. Our body has an innate ability to heal itself and does this quite naturally on a daily basis. Sometimes this is not possible and our system needs a bit of help, either medical or complementary, or often, a combination of both. Health Kinesiology, by balancing all aspects of the person, puts the body in an optimum state for self-healing.
The healing effects can continue for days, weeks and even months following a Health Kinesiology session. The effects of sessions are cumulative. It is possible to see a benefit from the first session, or you may take longer for the cumulative effect to be clearly noticeable to you. How long improvement takes will depend on the individual and their ability to rebalance and heal. Each client responds as well as their body and energy system is able. Generally the rate of improvement depends on how long you have had the concern, how deeply rooted it is, your ability/willingness to make and sustain suggested life-style changes, and how good your energy levels are.
