Cotswold Kinesiology



What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology uses manual muscle testing in a highly efficient manner to evaluate and explore areas of dysfunction within the body. It is a holistic language of the body which allows self-healing.


When did it start?

The founder was Dr George H Goodheart (Dr of Chiropractic U.S.A.) who developed this system in 1964. Since then, extensive and ongoing research has been done to prove its efficacy in allowing the body to heal itself.
