Kinesiology is the study of human body movement. It addresses the physiological, biomechanical and psychological mechanisms of movement.
The application of kinesiology to human health includes strength and conditioning work, sports psychology, rehabilitation and sports specific exercises.
This is one of the many techniques that may be used during a bodywork session at Body Alignment Solutions. Other techniques may include myoskeletal alignment therapy, assisted stretching, joint mobilisation and deep tissue massage. All designed to increase the body’s range of movement and improve physical performance.
Kinesiology as described above should not be confused with applied kinesiology, a controversial medical diagnostic method.
