What is Kinesiology?
The practice of Kinesiology is the assessment of movement, performance and function. It includes the rehabilitation, prevention and management of disorders to maintain, rehabilitate or enhance movement, performance and function. Pickering Kinesiologists focus in the areas of sport, recreation, work, exercise, and activities of daily living.
Kinesiology Pickering brings together the principles of Ancient Chinese Medicine with western healing techniques to heal the body in a truly holistic manner. The western technique of muscle testing is used to gain energy information from the clients body. This information identifies the most beneficial treatment for the client, addressing underlying causes whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
