Questions about Kinesiology Treatments
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on how long you have had a particular health concern. Generally speaking it is a good idea to commit to 3 treatments at the beginning. Regaining your health does take a little bit of time, and many need ongoing support while changes in lifestyle and treatment takes place. That’s why we suggest you plan to book three sessions initially, usually one week apart. However everyone is unique and you can discuss this with your practitioner.
How much does a treatment cost?
Prices vary around the country. But generally speaking a treatment will be from €55 – €85 for approximately an hour.
Does Kinesiology help you to lose weight?
Kinesiology helps with a wide range of issues, including helping you to lose weight. Kinesiology not only works with finding out foods which you may be sensitive to, it will also work with the underlying emotional issues.
General Questions About Kinesiology
What is the difference between AK and Systematic Kinesiology?
Dr George Goodheart founded Applied Kinesiology and only those practitioners trainedwith the International College of Applied Kinesiology use this term. Members of ICAK have done at least a 100 hours course in Kinesiology techniques. Some members study for the title of Diplomat and for this must do extensive research and produce papers on Applied Kinesiology that furthers its use and understanding. Only those trained as doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists or others who have medical or science orientated qualifications are able to do the ICAK course.
Applied Kinesiology uses a diagnostic approach using manual muscle testing to measure the motor response of the central nervous system to a sensory challenge.Systematic Kinesiology encompasses the techniques used within ICAK, the techniques originally described by Dr George Goodheart and others such as Walther who have gone on to research Kinesiology and have tried and tested these techniques. Brian Butler initially developed this course in the U.K. and its aim is to train lay people in Kinesiology and keep up the high standards equivalent to those trained by the ICAK in the USA, UK and other countries.
