Q. How does kinesiology work?
A. Kinesiology uses the gentle art of muscle testing to identify health concerns in the body caused by imbalances that are the result of injury, nutrition, or stress. By applying gentle pressure to the main muscles, a kinesiologist can interpret the response to gain information about the person’s overall health and devise the best way to target these problems using a combination of modern techniques and ancient medical wisdom.
Q. What makes kinesiology so effective?
A. By using the muscles as a tool for communication rather than simply listening to the patient’s list of symptoms that could indicate any number of health issues, a kinesiologist can bypass the conscious mind and tap into the subconscious to access ‘biofeedback’ and pinpoint the exact problem and its cause. This enables the patient to understand what their body is trying to tell them and resolve the issue, empowering them to heal themselves.
Q. How many sessions will I need?
A. It depends on the severity of the issue and the strength of its cause, but Narissa says typically one to three consultations is enough.
Q. What is the meridian system and how does it tie in with kinesiology?
A. This detection technique stems from traditional Chinese medicine and is also used in acupuncture. There are 14 meridians in total, linking various parts of the body together to distribute energy, known as qi (chi). These 14 meridians are associated with the 14 main organs and vessels in the body, which connect to 14 main muscles. In kinesiology, the kinesiologist uses these main muscles to assess problematic areas and often balance them. What make Narissa Harrison different is that she has learnt to use just one main muscle to assess the whole body, making her approach less invasive.
