Frequently asked Questions
What happens during a Kinesiology session?
Our first session together will begin by reviewing your client history form as we dive deeper into your health and wellness history to ascertain how you are feeling now, what you would like to achieve and identify any challenges you may be facing. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better, so you feel relaxed, safe and comfortable.
Following our chat, you will lie fully clothed on the treatment table and I will use gentle muscle monitoring to identify the priority issues for that session and locate any stress or imbalance in your body. I use a variety of non-invasive correction techniques to bring your body back into balance including acupressure points, neuro-lymphatic and neuro-vascular points, energy healing, chakra balancing, Reiki, Australian Bush Flower essences and meridians … just to name a few!
Depending on what comes up during the session, we may discuss how it is linked to your presenting issues and what you are experiencing.
Once the ‘balance’ component of the session is complete, we will review how the session went, answer any questions you may have and discuss whether there is anything you could do in your daily life which may assist you in reaching your goals.
The overall process of a kinesiology balance is very gentle and supportive.
What could I experience in a Kinesiology session?
There isn’t a standard script or procedure when it comes to having a Kinesiology session with me. Each session is guided by you and I intuitively adapt depending on your personal beliefs, how you are feeling and what you need on that day.
During our session you may …
~ Close your eyes and relax, taking the opportunity to unwind and recharge.
~ Debrief what is going on in your life and how it is impacting you.
~ Gain some direction and perspective by workshopping ideas or scenarios.
~ Share past challenging experiences or traumas.
~ Release difficult emotions which you may have been repressing or ignoring for many years.
~ Feel shifts in energy or experience spiritual connection.
Regardless of your presenting symptoms or issues, each client is unique and has a different back story which brings you to this point. We move through each session without pressure, judgement or expectation.
What is muscle monitoring?
Muscle monitoring is a simple and non-invasive feedback mechanism which helps to access information from your body during your Kinesiology session. It allows me to identify any stressors, imbalances or blockages you may be experiencing and gather information on your physical, emotional, mental and energetic state.
The process involves applying gentle pressure to a muscle (usually your left arm) and identifying whether there is a change or loss in muscle strength. This ‘weakness’ in the muscle is not a sign you need to hit the gym, rather it indicates there is stress on your system in response to a particular stimulus. Muscle monitoring helps take the guess work out of your session and provides a more specific and tailored approach to what your body needs.
How long does a Kinesiology session take?
Generally, your first Kinesiology session will take around 70-90 minutes and all follow-up sessions take around 50-60 minutes. However, this is a guide only as each component of the session may vary depending on what we are working on and what your body needs at that point in time. There may be times where your body requires extra corrections to come back into balance, yet sometimes only a few corrections are involved. Through the use of muscle monitoring, your body will tell me when it has had enough and the session is complete.
What do I wear for my appointment?
It is recommended to wear comfortable and flexible clothes as I may need to conduct some muscle tests during the session which involve lifting or moving your legs and arms, however this is not essential. I usually ask clients to remove their shoes prior to getting onto the treatment table.
How will I feel after my Kinesiology session?
Each client’s experience is different, as it depends on what we have covered during the session. Some clients immediately feel more relaxed, calm and energised, with many clients describing a sense of ‘lightness’ or ‘relief’ after their session.
Yet some clients feel quite emotional or ‘heavy’, or experience headaches and tiredness for around 24-48 hours post-session. This can be due to the body shifting energy, releasing unwanted toxins, integrating the healing process or adjusting to a new way of thinking and feeling.
Some clients don’t notice any significant change as it may take a few days for the balance to integrate, or there may be subtle changes happening in the background.
There isn’t a right or wrong way of feeling, however if you have any concerns after your session please get in touch!
How many sessions will it take?
This depends on the individual and the issues you are experiencing.
To enable a greater level of transformation and see the most sustained benefits, I recommended you complete a series of 3-5 Kinesiology sessions. This allows us to peel back the layers, dig a bit deeper and ensure we uncover and resolve the root cause of your issue. Chronic issues and behaviour patterns which have been unresolved for many years may require additional sessions, whilst less complex issues may only need 2-3 sessions to clear the underlying stress in your body.
I recommend you complete your second session 1-2 weeks after your initial session. From there, your third and fourth sessions can be 2-3 weeks apart, with your fifth session being 3-4 weeks later. I suggest booking ahead to ensure you find a time which suits you best.
Kinesiology can also be used as a preventative measure for your spiritual, emotional and physical well-being, so my clients often book in for a regular session every 4-6 weeks.

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy work derived from ancient healing practices which is non-invasive, gentle and powerful. It uses guided life force energy to enable energy flow through your body and promotes deep relaxation and helps to release stress and tension.
During a Reiki session I place my hands directly on or above you to channel the healing energy. You may feel heat, warmth or cold sensations, see colours or experience mild twitches in your body as the energy shifts. You will definitely feel relaxed and may even drop off to sleep during the session!
Reiki can help to calm your body and mind, decrease emotional stress and improve your overall energy and well-being.
Does Kinesiology replace conventional medicine and treatment?
No. As a Kinesiologist I do not diagnose or treat any named diseases, nor do I prescribe medication or supplements. However, Kinesiology may assist with identifying and resolving possible underlying causal factors and symptoms.
Can I claim my appointment at Soul Flourish on my private health insurance?
