Principles of Kinesiology


Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

Kinesiology is a system of natural health care which combines muscle testing with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function. A touch therapy, it uses a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques and can be effective in the treatment of many conditions, including allergies, backache, fatigue, emotional difficulties, headaches and skin and bowel problems. This book describes how kinesiology can help with these problems by correcting imbalances found in the different forms of kinesiology assessment.

Maggie La Tourelle works in London as a holistic therapist, teacher and writer. She started teaching Touch for Health (a form of kinesiology developed specifically for non-professionals) in 1984, and since then has gained experience in all the main branches. Maggie is also a NLP master practitioner. She is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Kinesiology Federation, the Association for Systematic Kinesiology, the Association for Therapeutic Healers, the Scientific and Medical Network and the Guild of Health Writers. Anthea Courtenay is a freelance writer, journalist and translator, also based in London.
