What is Kinesiology (kin-easy-ology)?
Kinesiology is a complementary medicine aiming to achieve and maintain a state of internal balance, an important characteristic of all living things.
This steady state within the organism is called homeostasis (ho-me-o-stay-sis).
Kinesiology is a wholistic approach incorporating the physical, emotional and mental aspects of our bodies.
How does it work?
Kinesiology is a non-invasive and gentle healing technique, utilising muscle testing and the body’s biofeedback mechanism.
Muscle testing provides information to the brain and body via nerve pathways and gives information from both the conscious and subconscious minds.
Through accessing neurological pathways within the body, Kinesiology can ‘reprogram’ responses to stressors which no longer serve a person. This will create the freedom to choose and bring positive changes and balance into a person’s life.
At the Kinesiology College of Victoria, we follow the principle that the Kinesiologist is the facilitator for the client’s process. The Kinesiologist provides the resources for the client to achieve the defined outcomes. This will be measurable and evidenced through clearly defined goals suitable for the client’s life style.
What corrections are used?
There are different areas of specialisation in Kinesiology and every one of them uses different correction methods. Most Kinesiologists will use muscle testing to find imbalances and the priority correction method within the body.

Kinesiology is an unregulated industry with a variety of different applications which can make it confusing.
Ensure that your Kinesiologist is registered with one of the main Australian industry bodies:
