“Corrections” are the name given to the parts of the treatment which actually rebalance the person’s energy and defuse the stress. Kinesiologists often don’t go into great detail about these because there are a lot of different types and different ones will be used at different sessions.
Basically, they are mini treatments. I’d say, generally, they last from anywhere between a couple of minutes to maybe 10-15 minutes. The set of corrections each kinesiologist uses will depend on the courses they’ve done and so will vary between practitioners.
Broadly speaking, they fall into 4 categories:
Electrical corrections – these work on restoring left/right brain connections and correct the stresses that have “blown our circuits”. Some of these have been taken on by teachers in schools via the “BrainGym
” exercises. Also, in this section are the acupressure corrections which work on rebalancing the meridians.
Emotional corrections – these work directly on the emotions. Some of these will involve gaining awareness through information which comes up. Many kinesiologists use flower remedies – the most well known being the Bach Flower Remedies. These work very gently on resolving unwanted emotional states.
Nutritional corrections – these correct imbalances by working on the nutritional system. Many kinesiologists do allergy and intolerance testing (although this isn’t something I do) and sometimes this is the first thing people think about when hearing the work kinesiology. It might be appropriate for the client to add or remove certain foods from their diet for a while, or it might be appropriate to work directly on the effect nutrition is having on the body.
Structural corrections – these are the ones that work directly on the muscles of the body. The kinesiology systems have aligned many of our muscles with the Chinese 5 element and meridian systems. By muscle testing the different muscles, we can correct the energy imbalances. This can make kinesiology very good for treating muscular problems and even postural problems.
Then there could well be other corrections. 3-in-1 Concepts Kinesiology covered a module on Face Reading (how our facial structure relates to our characteristics we inherited genetically). This can provide a huge insight for people into why they tend to behave and be drawn to certain experiences. Practitioners may be qualified in other therapies and choose to bring them into their work.
As you might expect if you’ve been reading the whole of this series of blog entries, the corrections are chosen according to the muscle testing. Often different ones will come up over several sessions with the same client, although they can seem to “favour” certain ones. For that reason, every session is unique.
