What is The Best Method To Overcome Stress, Anxiety, PTSD and Depression?... Kinesiology

byron bay kinesiology alchemy wellness


Kinesiology ( KIN-ESI-OLOGY ) is a modality which can help you to make lasting changes in all areas of your health and well-being. Incredibly safe, gentle and non-invasive, Kinesiology works to navigate to the root cause of your illness by removing the blockages locked deep inside your mind. One of the great things about Kinesiology is the ability to tap into the physical, biochemical and mental aspects of the body, which are all interconnected. Something that affects the mind will cause biochemical and physical signs and symptoms. Kinesiology accomplishes this by combining muscle testing with Traditional Chinese Medicine theory to resolve many health conditions.


Muscle Testing is used to detect stress in the body and mind, by working with the central nervous system it is able to bypass the conscious mind and tap into the subconscious mind, allowing us to examine where, when, how and why stress has occurred and been stored or suppressed throughout our life, so we can explore the hidden parts of ourselves. Once discovered a variety of balancing methods are applied to resolve the stress by acting on the nervous system, for eg Acu-points are stimulated.

In Kinesiology we say " the body doesn't lie ". We all have memories, beliefs and stories that effect how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. One of the most powerful aspects of Kinesiology is its ability to bypass these subjective ideas and find the root cause, this is where true illumination and transformation occurs.


Let's take my client for example, let's call her Lauren - she was feeling stuck and unfulfilled in her job. She knew she needed to make a change but was fearful, & wasn't sure what kind of job to do next, she was feeling financially burdened, stressed out and confused.

Through muscle testing it was revealed that the fear based thinking Lauren was experiencing stemmed from her very early childhood where she was always trying to impress her father, looking to earn his love and approval. In not receiving the love and attention she desired, she developed a belief system that she wasn't good enough. From this root belief system many other 'beliefs' and 'fixations' developed, manifesting in different ways and areas of Lauren's life.

By using muscle testing we were able to discover that in relation to this issue it was the core survival emotions of the Brainstem that had become triggered for Lauren, we located which core survival emotion - in this case it was Fear, and found the precise Neuro-Emotional pathways that the stress was travelling through within the entire brain. The negative belief systems, and the activation of the core survival emotion of FEAR is why Lauren had become 'frozen', unable to make the changes necessary to move forward, too scared of leaving the safety of her job, because of her belief systems that she's not good enough, she was expecting change to bring suffering instead of joy. Lauren had so many layers of stress...that she had lost connection to herself and her purpose.

By stimulating a select series of acupuncture points to get a nervous system response, we were able to diffuse the stress that has been locked away in Lauren's body for her whole life. This process of 'making the unknown known' is a crucial part of the healing in Kinesiology. Not only do we release and balance the stress, but Lauren was able to understand WHY she felt how she felt! How powerful! She was able to see her life and her current situation from a new perspective. At the end of the session, we retest the muscles to ensure that the stress has been dissolved and that the body is now in balance, the body now holds the new belief system.

Through regular Kinesiology sessions Lauren was able to remove the stress she was experiencing around her work situation, and many areas of her life. She overcame her fears, she was able to reconnect with her goals and move into a new and inspiring career.


Commitment to a series of sessions is recommended, more frequently at first, to retrain the systems of your body back to 100%. Once major goals are accomplished, regular tune up sessions, are a great way of keeping the entire body system healthy, balanced and full of vitality.

Ownership of the healing journey is crucial for transformation. The greatest change comes from within and this is a great time to reflect upon different patterns of behaviour experienced throughout all stages of life. At Alchemy Wellness we support our clients outside of the treatment room with lifestyle advice, Alchemy Elixir Essences and ongoing contact to help facilitate change and transformation at the deepest level. Stress, Anxiety, PTSD and Depression are conditions that have great impact on all areas of life and it's hard to thrive when these dark guests are lurking!

If you or someone you love is suffering with conditions such as Stress, Anxiety, PTSD or Depression and you feel it's time to make lasting positive change, Kinesiology can help you to re-align your health and wellness into everything you wish for. Come back to feeling like yourself, feel calm, balanced and in control. I would love to work with you to help you achieve your goals.
