Nutrition & Kinesiology
'Ella Owen is a Nutritional Therapist...with a difference. I have had several sessions with Ella over the years and she has always been able to pinpoint, with great accuracy, what I'm sensitive to, what I need to eat more of, and exactly which supplements I need to take. I wouldn't be without her!'
In a consultation Ella Owen advises on the use of diet and food supplements to restore balance, aid detoxification and address potential nutritional deficiences.
For a personalised nutritional approach, Ella Owen uses Kinesiology 'muscle testing'. Kinesiology is used to obtain information about the bio-energetic system of the body.
Kinesiology is an holistic therapy approach. The beauty of this system is that it engages the wisdom of your body/mind system to reveal what is right for you as an individual. It is a means of obtaining information about the bio-energetic system of the body. It is not used as a medical diagnostic tool.
Who can benefit?
Nutritional Therapy and Kinesiology can help with many health concerns and wellbeing goals including:
Traditionally Kinesiology (pronounced kin - easy - ology) refers to the study of muscles and movement in the body. However, in the natural health field, the term Kinesiology is seen and used in a wilder context. Here muscles become monitors of stress and imbalance within the whole body. 'Muscle testing' is used to detect various imbalances which may relate to nutrition, emotional wellbeing, and meridian energies.
Kinesiology has its roots in the early 1960s with Doctor George Goodheart, an American Chiropractor. Dr Goodheart began muscle testing to evaluate muscle performance, posture and general structural imbalances. His continued research led him to link the meridian energy flow with muscles and organs. This work also included discoveries of other corrective and subtle energy balancing treatments, that work holistically to balance mind, body and emotions. Goodheart developed this system which he called 'Applied Kinesiology' and shared this knowledge with other chiropractors and professionals. Further Kinesiology systems have developed since these early days.
