Kinesiology for Children - Food Sensitivities

Kinesiology is considered to be a complete form of complimentary wellness care.  It uses gentle muscle testing to look for, understand and aid in supporting any imbalance within the body.  

I find that children from around the age of 5 are able to muscle test with me.  If however this is tricky then I use a wonderful technique called surrogate muscle testing. 

To use surrogate muscle testing, the parent is in physical contact with the child and I use the parents muscles to test the muscle responses of the child. Through this brilliant technique I am able to suggest the imbalances that the child may be challenged with and can then create your child’s individual wellness plan. 

Food Sensitivity

Food...we have an interesting relationship with it.  It can be used to fuel our bodies and provide nutritional content to help our well being and it has an impact on our mood and behaviour. 


How then do we know if we have a sensitivity to certain foods?  We aim for our 5 fruits and vegetables a day and only have the occasional treat, so how would my body tell me that I have a sensitivity? 

Your body is awesome - it will provide hints, clues or even problems so that you are able to 'notice' when you don't feel 'right'.  Some of these signs include, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, tummy pains, skin issues and behaviour changes. 


These challenges can sometimes seem overwhelming for both the parent and the child  Through Kinesiology using the parent as a surrogate, I can discover where the child is being challenged and then can suggest where their body needs support.

What do sessions involve? 

As I assess the muscles using the surrogate testing technique (if necessary) and the feedback that they provide, I will create an individual wellness plan for your child which may have the following suggestions: 

  • Food supplements suitable for children

  • Dietary changes including advice on food and chemical sensitivities 

  • Gentle relaxation techniques
