Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify imbalances a person has by monitoring their ability to hold their muscles against light pressure.  Each muscle is related to an organ and an energy pathway called a meridian.

If there are chemical, emotional, structural or energetic stresses, weakening the circuit the muscle test will feel weak indicating an imbalance.



Massage improves the blood circulation in several ways without putting additional strain on the heart. It helps the flow of blood through the veins and also stimulates the nerves which control the blood vessels. It has the added benefit of relaxing tense muscles and tight connective tissues which may have been constricting blood vessels and thus enabling blood to flow more freely. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, sore shoulders and more….
