How Kinesiology can Calm Anxiety | Alma Vale Centre

Find out from Alex McArthur how kinesiology can help work out what is at the root of your anxiety and from there put your body back into balance


Alex McArthurKinesiology provides a completely holistic approach by looking at the whole mind and body and is a non-invasive, safe way of identifying what is causing feelings of anxiety.

We work on the premise that the body never lies. By talking through any physical symptoms you are showing or feelings you are having, we then test different muscles to identify these imbalances, and find out what the cause is.

Most people that feel anxious a lot of the time find that their bodies are in a permanently stressed state, or what we call a stage of adrenal fatigue. This is when your body is constantly producing stress hormones. This then in turn effects the endocrine system and the gut… and on it goes.

Kinesiology can identify if this is the case and help you to work out what is causing it. During a session, we can then bring your body back into balance with a combination of nutritional support, lymphatic massage and energy work, much like reiki.


How long does it take to reduce anxiety symptoms?

Your body has probably taken years to get to this point so it’s unlikely to be fixed in one session! But you will notice a difference. Most clients can start to see extreme anxiety lessen over three to four sessions.


Case example

Sam came to see me at a point where she was exhausted. She was working a full week in a stressful job and managing three children. Her husband had recently been taken ill and she felt the weight of the world on her shoulders.

Normally ‘a bit of a worrier’ she realised she had started compulsively worrying about everything, so much so she was waking up 2 hours after going to sleep and not going back to sleep.

In her first session, she identified that her anxiety was something she’d always had but as the need to perform was greater with it all perspective had been lost. We identified some strong emotional triggers, including frustration and grief, that were playing their part, tested for the right nutritional support and she identified some small changes she could make in her routine.

Over four sessions she reported her stress scale had reduced from 9/10 to 5/10, she was feeling more ‘like me’ and was sleeping through the night for the first time in years.

By tapping into her body, she now understands and can recognise when the extreme anxiety kicks in and has tools at hand to deal with it.
