Kinesiology is a practice that involves the assessment and optimization of movement, performance and function. Through the use of rehabilitation, prevention and management techniques, Kinesiology’s primary objective is to correct, maintain or improve movement, performance and function in the body.
How It Works
Healing the body with a holistic approach, Kinesiology combines the principles of ancient Chinese medicine with Western healing techniques. Muscle testing is used to obtain information about the energy in your body, which helps our Charlton Kinesiologists determine the most effective form of treatment. Whether the root cause of your condition is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, our highly educated and experienced Kinesiologists in Hamilton empower you to take responsibility for your health.
Using evidence-based medicine, we develop custom rehabilitation programs to help you get fit, stay fit and perform at your maximum level. All of our programs focus on prevention, productivity and overall well-being in all facets of life including recreation, work, exercise, sport and activities of daily living.
