Energy Kinesiology

Muscle Balancing

Energy kinesiology, through muscle balancing, can complement the care you receive from your medical team to promote conception, a sustained and comfortable pregnancy, natural birth, and joyful motherhood.  Don’t just take my word for it!  Comments from new parents who have had kinesiology sessions show that kinesiology works!  A personalized kinesiology session takes about 1 hour and can help you reach your health and personal goals, while resetting your body into a state of harmony.

What is Energy Kinesiology?  Energy Kinesiology is a holistic therapy that integrates eastern medicine and modern science to improve your health — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

What are your credentials for practicing Energy Kinesiology?   I am trained in the K-Power 5 Element Fundamentals for Mind-Body Therapists, through the International College of Healing Arts.  I am also Touch for Health (level I) trained.

How can muscle balancing help me?  Common preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum related issues kinesiology may be able to help include (but are not limited to): amenorrhea, painful periods, IVF, nausea, heartburn / reflux, fatigue, physical discomfort, pain and tension, digestive issues, bonding with your baby, difficulty sleeping, body image issues, optimal positioning of baby for birth, spontaneous labor prior to post dates, pelvic organ prolapse, sexuality, stress, incontinence, breastfeeding challenges, adjustment to new role, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

Are there any conditions for which a muscle balance is contraindicated?  No.  Kinesiology sessions are safe for all conditions, ages, and abilities.  You may be lying down or standing upright during your muscle balance.

Is it uncomfortable?  I don’t think so.  If you have ever been through physical therapy or chiropractic adjustments, you will find that the muscle testing and correction techniques of kinesiology are much gentler!

Is kinesiology an alternative to medical treatments?  No.  It is not within my scope to either diagnose or treat medical conditions, or to deliver babies, for that matter.  You still will work with your midwife or doctor, and kinesiology will be a tool you use to switch on your body’s healing resources and assist you in reaching your wellness goals.

What happens in a muscle balance?  In a balance, the expectant or new parent:

  • Sets effective goals
  • Undergoes gentle muscle testing to identify locations where energy is not flowing efficiently
  • Receives correction techniques to improve:
    • muscle performance
    • physical health
    • stress levels and emotional well being
    • mental clarity, and
    • attunement with one’s body.
  • Receives personalized homework to supplement the balance.

How do I sign up for a muscle balance / kinesiology session, and what is the cost?  Within the confines of your birth doula or postpartum doula contract, muscle balancing is a complimentary service that you can request from your doula.  When all of the prenatal or postpartum hours of your contract have been fulfilled, you may arrange for additional sessions at $30 / hour.  Contact me to set up an appointment.
