The word âKinesis’ in Greek means movement and Kinesiology studies the relationship between the quality of muscular movement and overall health. Kinesiology deals with methods of maintaining good health through proper functioning and movement of all the muscles in the body.
This system operates under the belief that each part of the body is connected to a corresponding muscle. If a muscle is not working properly, associated parts will be affected and this manifests as a disease.
Kinesiology is related to acupuncture and draws on the principles of ancient Chinese medicine. Both sciences deal with the specific paths in the body called meridians. As in acupuncture, Kinesiology believes that physical disorders are a direct result of blocks in the path of the energy flow in our body.
A trained Kinesiologist employs muscle testing to identify problem areas. The doctor applies pressure on a clenched muscle and asks the patient to resist the pressure. Thus he assesses muscle movement and response. The practitioner looks for any physical disorder, lack of nutrition or lack of energy that may be at the root of the problem.
Once the problem area is identified, gentle techniques are used to re-establish harmony and to rejuvenate the flow of energy. A light massage on the relevant pressure points usually restores the flow of blood to the muscles and stimulates the secretion of lymph. Lymph is responsible for detoxifying the muscles. So when the muscles receive a good supply of lymph and blood, they function well.
Other common forms of treatment include the use of magnets, flower essence, homeopathy and even thought control. Most patients find their Kinesiology sessions immensely enjoyable and relaxing. They leave therapy with a feeling of wonder that such a joyous experience could really cure them of their illness.
An experienced Kinesiologist would be able to assess the ENTIRE health chart of a client in just a single sitting. The therapist may identify allergies, deal with phobias or stress, rectify nutritional imbalances and may even start the process of detoxifying the entire system of the patient.
Like any other holistic medical practice, you really do not need to have any external symptom to benefit from Kinesiology. Even in the absence of illness, Kinesiology helps improve health, increases the feeling of well-being, boosts intellectual functioning and unleashes positive attitudes. In short, it can help individuals reach the highest point of their potential. One can achieve success in just about any field by riding on a high wave of confidence and ability.
Kinesiology works because it is non-invasive, gentle and free of side effects. Kinesiology is an effective preventative therapy. Some of the areas where Kinesiology works wonders are:
– Prevents illnesses
– Increases energy levels
– Relieves physical pain by improving posture
– Heals traumas
– Identify allergies
– Enhances brain functioning and coordination

An aromatherapy school will teach a modality of complementary therapy that uses herbs and plant oils (essential oils) to relax and heal your body. The oils are applied to the body through massage, but also the sense of smell plays its part in creating a positive change in your mood and illness. Aromatherapy and essential oils can help clients who are suffering from many different illnesses.
A perfume makers discovery:
When first starting in aromatherapy school, students will probably hear the story about how this massage therapy was discovered. In the 1920\’s, a French chemist who was working on new perfumes in his laboratory, accidentally set fire to his arm. He put his arm into some lavender oil to put the fire out.
The French chemist discovered that the lavender oil helped his arm to heal really fast and didn\’t leave a scar. So the chemist spent the rest of his life dedicated to aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy schools teach students about the different types of essential oils and what illness they help to relieve. For instance If the patient is suffering from burns, an aromatherapy student will be taught how they should use lavender oil, and also the quantity and frequency to apply it.
Many aromatherapy schools believe that aromatherapy is a science and should only be practised in a professional manner by aromatherapy school graduates. Although other schools teach the student to open up to there intuition as well. Which is seen by some as being the more balanced way.
Some doctors disapprove of aromatherapy:
There are some doctors who do not approve of aromatherapy and the aromatherapy schools that teach it. They also say that all that an aromatherapy school teaches is the ability to reduce stress. They also state that there reasons are based on the lack of any real facts or figures.
Does aromatherapy only give stress relief:
Some doctors actually agree some patients may have been helped by an aromatherapy treatment, however, they are quick to state, only because aromatherapy helped to ease their stress. For sure, stress can help to create a number of illness\’s and when stress is relieved, the illness is often relieved as well.
However, they also comment that aromatherapy is not as successful as traditional medicine when it comes to serious illness. This is the block aromatherapy experiences in its attempt to reach the public at large.
While many doctor\’s don\’t agree, there are lots of aromatherapy teachers who do, and there are lots of potential students applying to get into an aromatherapy school. There more than likely be a aromatherapy school near you, because as aromatherapy becomes more popular schools seem to be appearing in most cities in the US and Europe. Even if you are not sure about the use of aromatherapy to help illness, going to an aromatherapy massage school will most certainly open you up to its true potential.
I am 19 and not many people I know listen to Enya. My opinion, she is the most contemplative musician out there. I think so much when I listen to her music about things I don’t think about ordinarily. I think of nature and calmness. It sounds hippyish, I know. But every song has its own memory for me. Anyone else get that way too?

I have hip trauma that effects my back. I’d like to find a doctor who could offer a proper help to have my hip back to its place and stop it loading pressure on my lower back. I heard that light yoga exercises have great positive effects in cases like this. Any one knows a doctos/s in UK or even outside it who would deal with sport traumas?
