Natural health and wellbeing at Procuro Clinic

Wednesday, 13th September, 2017 6:06pm

Wellbeing applies not just to our minds, but to our bodies too. Liam Daly DipAK is a systematic kinesiologist practicing out of Procuro Therapy Clinic in Douglas as part of an integrated wellness team. Applied kinesiology originated in 1964 through the work of Dr George Goodheart, a chiropractor who pioneered this form of alternative medicine. He said that he discovered that the strength or weakness of every muscle was connected to the health or lack of health of a specific corresponding organ.

How does it work?

The practitioner will test the patient's muscles at certain points which directly co-relate to a particular meridian in the body. This allows him/her to see where the imbalance may be. Using gentle pressure he will look for weaknesses at these points. If the muscle is not firing correctly, due to imbalance in the body, the patient will be unable to respond firmly. This may possibly be an indication that something is out of balance and needs correction.

These imbalances may be because of an emotional disturbance or a deficiency in diet. It is then the role of the practitioner to test to see what exactly is causing these imbalances and design a treatment plan through diet, exercise or supplements to combat these weaknesses and correct the imbalance.

What does applied kinesiology possibly treat?

· Pain · stress and confusion · depressive tendencies · digestive disorders · fatigue and tiredness · back problems · learning disabilities · respiratory issues · nervous disorders · food sensitivities and responses · sports injuries · personal development and lifestyle enhancement · general wellbeing

Speaking about kinesiology, Liam said: "Since I discovered kinesiology four years ago, my health and wellbeing has improved to a huge degree, and since 2015, I have been a practitioner and course tutor, sharing this wonderful therapy with the wider world.

"I often get asked what kinesiology is and my answer can vary depending on the condition being discussed.

“When a client comes for a treatment, I check for imbalances in all of the body’s energy systems by applying gentle pressure on various muscles around the body that are connected to these energy systems, which in turn are related to various glands and organs in the body."

He added: "If any muscle feels a little weak on testing, this indicates an imbalance and I ascertain the root cause of the problem. Kinesiology has powerful, yet very effective techniques that alleviate emotional, adrenal and structural stress. It can realign imbalanced muscles and alleviate aches and pains.

"As your practitioner, I can advise techniques to help with focus and memory, learning difficulties, circulation and flexibility. People with low energy find great relief from kinesiology and in some cases, life altering changes to their energy levels," concluded Liam.
