It is a therapy that uses the kinetic strength of muscles through muscle testing to correct imbalances in the body, be they through a physical element like an allergy or a psychological element such as a relationship break-up, problems at work etc.

Kinesiology uses muscle testing as a biofeedback system to access the body’s cellular memory and innate wisdom. Everything that has ever happened to us gets stored and unless released adequately contributes to dis-ease in our body, mind or spirit. Working to release these stresses held in the Unconscious Mind will not only strengthen the immune system, it will strengthen our entire being thereby allowing us to operate more effectively in all areas of our lives.

Kinesiology, also known as human kinetics, is the scientific study of human movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms. Applications of kinesiology to human health include: biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise.* Individuals who have earned degrees in kinesiology can work in research, the fitness industry, clinical settings, and in industrial environments.* Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.*

Kinesiology as described above should not be confused with applied kinesiology, a controversial* chiropractic chiropractic treatment techniques|diagnostic method.*The word comes from the Greek word kinein, to move.


Kinesiology is the study of human and animal movement, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. Applications of kinesiology in human health include physical education teacher, the rehabilitation professions, such as physical and occupational therapy, as well as applications in the sport and exercise industries. Kinesiology is a field of scientific study, and does not prepare individuals for clinical practice. A bachelor's degree in kinesiology can provide strong preparation for graduate study in biomedical research, as well as in professional programs, such as allied health and medicine.

Whereas the term "kinesiologist" is neither a licensed nor professional designation in the United States nor most countries (with the exception of Canada), individuals with training in this area can teach physical education, provide consulting services, conduct research and develop policies related to rehabilitation, human motor performance, ergonomics, and occupational health and safety. In North America, kinesiologists may study to earn a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, or Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Kinesiology or a Bachelor's degree#Kinesiology|Bachelor of Kinesiology degree, while in Australia or New Zealand, they are often conferred an Applied Science (Human Movement) degree (or higher). Many doctoral level faculty in North American kinesiology programs received their doctoral training in related disciplines, such as neuroscience, mechanical engineering, psychology, and physiology.

The world's first kinesiology department was launched in 1967 at the University of Waterloo, Canada.*

Scope of practice

In most countries, kinesiology refers to an area of study and is not associated with a professional designation. In Canada, kinesiology is a professional designation associated with the assessment of movement, performance, and function; and the rehabilitation, prevention, and management of disorders to maintain, rehabilitate, and enhance movement, performance, and function in the areas of sport, recreation, work, exercise, and general activities of daily living.*Kinesiology is applied in areas of health and fitness for all levels of athletes, but more often found with training of elite athletes. All too often biomechanical analysis focuses on the kinetic energy or the working numbers in execution of technique. More emphasis should be placed on muscle and joints as they are involved in the action and the role they play in execution of the technique is critical.*

Licensing and regulation


In Canada, Kinesiology has been designated a regulated health profession * Kinesiology was made a regulated health care industry|health profession in the province of Ontario in the summer of 2007 * and similar proposals have been made for other Canadian provinces. The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance-Alliance Canadienne de KinÚsiologie is a not-for-profit corporation that promotes the professions of kinesiology in Canada http://www.cka.ca.

United States

In the United States, the American Kinesiology Association is the national kinesiology organization of university departments providing professional information about kinesiology degree programs.*
