Wholistic Kinesiology

Wholistic Kinesiology is a branch of Kinesiology created and specialized by Dr. J. Dunn. It is the most sophisticated, functional, detailed, and remarkable kinesiology tool that allows one to speak clearly with the body.

Now…Wholistic Methylation is a very specialized process that unites the “art” of utilizing Wholistic Methylation techniques while incorporating Wholistic Kinesiology. The two work hand and hand, beautifully in symphony to take the guess-work out of just analyzing one’s genetics and making “one size fits all” recommendations, similar to the way the Western Medical system operates. One should be careful about generalizing the health information one reads, as each person is completely different from the next and what works for one person rarely works the same way for another. For example, one client’s life may change on the spot by taking a nutrient called 5-MTHF and another may get very sick temporarily and be very uncomfortable.

As an Advanced Wholistic Methylation practitioner, I research as much information about you as I can possibly attain. Step One for many people is to get your DNA tested. I prefer AncestryDNA.com which will give you a host of ancestry information and will give me an incredible blueprint of your genes. I then analyze this blueprint using one of many databases. I prefer FHEval. Using this information along with many other tools including muscle testing, I can begin to determine your distinct health care risks, as well as the optimal nutrients, lifestyle, and diet for your unique needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Balance the Body?

Natural-Wholistic Kinesiology does not treat conditions, but concentrates on whole body balancing in order to restore health. When the whole body has attained balance and health, many symptoms can be relieved.

Common symptoms that can be relieved: Allergies, Asthma, Auto Immune disorders, Bronchitis, Candida, Chronic Fatigue, Confusion, Depression, Diabetes, Eczema and Psoriasis, Fears & Phobias, Gastrointestinal disorders, Hay fever, Headache, Hormonal Imbalance, IBS- Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Muscle pain & Joint pain, Stress, Weight problems, and more.

Is Wholistic Kinesiology Different Than Kinesiology?

Wholistic Kinesiology is different than Kinesiology in that it is used in a clinical setting to evaluate much more than muscle strength. It is the art and science of neuromuscular evaluation for optimizing health. In Kinesiology, we make great use of the meridian flow pathways in the body. 

How does Wholistic Kinesiology Work?

Kinesiology is a branch of science which was developed by doctors, chiropractors, and acupuncturists in the USA. They pooled their knowledge and added it to Chinese medicine (using the scientifically verified meridian/energy system in the body) to develop a totally new technology which is amazingly efficient at balancing the body so that it can return to excellent health, energy, and emotional strength. It stands apart from any other type of health technology largely due to its use of revolutionary non-invasive muscle testing. 

Kinesiology evaluates the neurological functioning of the body’s nervous system using an indicator muscle. The nervous system (meridian system) is electrical in nature, with its positive and negative currents. With muscle testing, we are zoning in on any short-circuiting (imbalances) in this system. Using nutrition, supplements, and various other modalities, these imbalances in the nervous system will come back into balance and one’s body will begin to heal and repair. This is where one begins to feel “In Sync” with their body, mind, and spirit and total health and well-being can return.

How is Wholistic Kinesiology and Chinese Medicine related?

The Chinese systems of flow of electrical energy are called meridians. In Wholistic Kinesiology, we make great use of the meridian flow pathways in the body. The eastern medical practitioners have paved the way for us by literally mapping out electrical highways in the body. If electrical energy is not flowing properly to an organ or muscle or joint we can detect this imbalance through testing the nervous system. This system of diagnosis may sound simplistic but it is very profound and valuable.

What to Expect?

Your first appointment will consist of a 2 hour in-depth analysis of all current health issues, family history, symptomology, current medications, supplements, blood work, and your current health goals. You will receive your first kinesiology session where you will lay down on a comfortable table and I will use “muscle testing” to detect any imbalances in your body or organs. A beginning supplement program will be designed with instructions and a follow-up appointment in approximately 3-4 weeks will be scheduled.

Follow-up appointments will consist of 1-1/2 to 2 hours to review and re-evaluate progress and levels of imbalance using kinesiological testing and a revised supplement and/or diet and exercise program will be generated. We may include specialized testing like food or environment allergy testing, emotional work, etc. on subsequent visits. Muscle testing will allow your body to tell me the exact next direction it would like to go for the greatest benefit to your healing.

*Please note that though most clients notice changes after the very first or second visit, some deeper-rooted health issues may take longer to clear and will require considerably more time, resources, and commitment to experience lasting results. I always remind clients that they did not experience disease and imbalance overnight and that there is not a “quick fix” or single pill that will heal the depth of their challenges. But I can guarantee that there is a core reason for their issues and there is in fact a road back to a quality life with little or no symptoms. Depending on one’s time, energy, desire and budget we can work together to create a wonderful plan of healing for you and your family.
