Before your balance…
I recommend you are well hydrated as this facilitates muscle testing.
If your balance is face to face in clinic I’d suggest you wear shorts or pants as you’ll be lying on a massage table and there may be some leg movements involved.
Other than that, just come along with an open mind and willingness to explore the process.
During your balance…
At your initial consultation I’ll take a client history. This will include collection of standard information such as contact details, history of the issue you’re coming to see me for, current medications or supplements etc. I may also ask about past significant events, family and other relationships etc. The aim of this is to gather as much information about you, where you’re at in life, how you got there and where you’re wanting to go. This will help us in identifying what to work on to get you to where you want to be.
After the client history we’ll start the kinesiology balance. You remain fully clothed throughout and have the choice of sitting, standing or lying. Most clients prefer to lie on the massage table.
The ‘balance’ is painless and involves me moving various muscles and/or using pressure points and touch. It may seem a bit odd and unlike anything you may have experienced before but I encourage you to relax and go with it.
After your balance…
After the balance I’ll do a further assessment and we’ll discuss any changes. I may also suggest some home reinforcement (homework) for you to consider.
How you feel afterwards will vary as each person is different. It can take a few days (and really good sleeps) for your body to take up and process the changes. If there was physical pain usually you’ll leave with reduced or no pain. If it was an emotional issue you may feel lighter or more at peace. Often these changes will become more noticeable and prominent as your body fully processes the balance.
On rare occasions a client may experience a headache or an ‘off’ feeling, most likely due to toxins being stirred up and leaving your body. It’s important to drink plenty of water as this helps eliminate toxins and assists your body with processing and recovery.
