The Australian Kinesiology Association Inc., is a national kinesiology body representing the professional interests of kinesiology practitioners and instructors, as well as the personal interests of students and the public.

The AKA promotes the professionalism of kinesiology through registration of both practitioners and instructors who abide by a strict code of ethics and practice.

To the uninitiated, Kinesiology may be a somewhat mysterious experience. An often-heard comment from new clients is: I don t know what the practitioner did, but it seemed to work because I definitely feel better .

A kinesiology session is known as a balance during which the client remains fully clothed. After comprehensive history taking the practitioner uses muscle monitoring to address energy imbalances.

Each Kinesiology balance is unique because it is determined by the responses gained from muscle monitoring.

An unlocking muscle test indicates a disturbed energy flow - be it structural, chemical, nutritional, mental, emotional and spiritual. This stress may manifest in the person as some form of disease, an accident, poor nutritional or postural habits, an unresolved argument, personal trauma or crisis, even as a misunderstanding.

Stresses can also carry over from any time in the client's life. For the client, most issues have been long forgotten because they tend to subside into the subconscious and are only brought back 'on-line', or into current consciousness, through the stimulus of a trigger event that in some way matches that past experience. When the bio-computer (brain) recognizes a stress match that it interprets as a survival threat, it can cause us to react in a similar way.

This is how individuals become locked into inappropriate behavioural patterns and often find themselves behaving like irrational children, despite the fact that as adults they really want to change their reaction to life's challenges.

During a Kinesiology session, people are surprised to find themselves recalling long forgotten incidents. The person however, never forgets because our survival-oriented structure means we hold all memories, particularly memories of negative experiences, somewhere in our system. The subconscious mind projects these experiences into the body, mind and soul, and outcome that gives rise to 'feelings'.

Consider how mental tension is felt as a tight jaw, tensed shoulders and a churning stomach. This is a purely mental event projected by the mind into the body as a physical sensation, such as pain or discomfort. Kinesiology encompasses a vast array of balancing methods with most of these emphasizing the power of emotions, particularly unresolved negative emotions.

Muscle monitoring can pinpoint these emotional triggers, and by bringing them back 'on-line', the person is given the chance to re-evaluate the events and the circumstances surrounding it. In the context of their current life experience, they are then in a position to change their responses and to choose new and more relevant responses.

Choice is the real key to resolving many stresses. Where there is choice, there is balance, and where there is balance, there is optimal health potential. Each Kinesiology balance is different because it honours the person's own healing potential and the sequence it follows to bring about the remarkable process that is healing. Often it can seem too simple to have such an effective resolution. But as the Chinese sages taught so long ago: "A miracle is simply that which is divinely natural".
