Many people make the decision to see a kinesiologist as a last resort. After trying a number of therapies without success, or, after putting up with a health issue for months (even years) they turn to kinesiology with great hopes and very high expectations.
Now I completely understand that someone at the end of their tether is desperate for a quick fix or a magical cure. Truly, I do get this. However, as a practitioner, I find it quite bewildering that such fast or miraculous results are continuously expected from kinesiology, more so than from other modalities.
Here are the three wishes clients often want granted.
Wish 1: kinesiology will fix their problem, quickly.
Many clients think they will only need one session, two at the very most, to help resolve their long standing health issues. They tell me they are tired of spending money on therapies which are not working and are sick of their health problems. They seem surprised to learn that numerous kinesiology sessions might be needed. Sure, some people respond quickly to kinesiology, but for the vast majority, a few appointments are needed to address the various underlying issues.
Wish 2: kinesiology will fix not just one, but many things, quickly.
It is not uncommon for clients to indicate a list of health issues, as long as their arm, which they want to work on, in one session. While kinesiology does work on the whole body, and many additional benefits are often noted after one session, the best approach to a kinesiology balance is to focus on one issue at a time.
Wish 3: the kinesiologist will fix their problem, quickly.
As a kinesiologist I do not ‘fix’ anyone. I facilitate a process to help clients heal themselves by helping them remove energetic blockages and address emotional issues. The process is active and involves the participation of the client throughout the whole session (there is no snoozing during kinesiology!). Following the inclinic session, clients are set ‘home reinforcement’ activities to do post balance. Activities could include lifestyle or dietary changes, new behaviours to adopt or habits to break. As a kinesiologist it is my job to ensure clients are taking responsibility for the changes they want to see in their life.
Kinesiology can make fast and lasting changes in people’s lives. Super quick fixes can and do happen, but they are the exception, rather than the rule. If you’ve got a chronic health issue, it will take time to address, with effort on your part.
Kinesiology is amazing.
Kinesiology will often get results where other modalities can’t.
Kinesiology can be magical in how it helps people, but as J.K Rowling said ““We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.” No magic wands required.
