“Kinesthetic” refers to the sense that detects bodily position and movement of the muscles, tendons,and joints. When this sense does not function properly the brain is unable to initiate movements accurately, causing stress to the involved structures. This is comparable to a loose ball bearing in a car or an unstable joint in a mechanical structure, which will wear out over time or break under increased pressure. Kinesthetic Restoration aims to restore correct sensing, thus allowing for correct function.

No part of the body functions in isolation. Muscles, tendons, and joints are connected to and affected by organs, the spine, the fascial system, and the craniosacral system which consists of the tissues surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Dysfunction in any of these systems will weaken specific muscles. This in turn can lead to pain, muscle tightness, and a predisposition to injuries.

Hamstring and quadriceps problems, for example, are frequently caused by underlying intestinal imbalances. Weakness in the muscle will persist in spite of exercise because it is not due to an under-exercised muscle, but rather to the brain-muscle connection being impacted so that the muscle cannot adequately respond to the stimulus from the brain. Thus, even highly trained athletes might be surprised to find weak muscles with muscle-specific resistive testing. The imbalance in the organ may be subclinical, meaning it's subtle enough to not cause noticeable symptoms.



Treatments

Kinesthetic Restoration treatments are precise, effective, gentle and non-invasive. Patients are fully clothed, unless they wish to combine treatments with Swedish or deep tissue massage.

Through muscle testing, resisted movement, and skilled listening to the tissues together we will determine which structures are functioning suboptimally and identify the underlying cause. Using a variety of advanced manual healing modalities, such as Neurolink, Visceral Manipulation, and Craniosacral Therapy, the underlying cause will be treated, allowing the body to heal. Some improvement usually happens immediately, though complete resolution may take a few sessions. Other seemingly unrelated problems may also improve, such as problems with:

  • Digestion
  • Sleep and Fatigue
  • Menstruation
  • Headaches
  • Urinary tract
  • Other chronic health issues
