Is Kinesiology safe for my Beagle?
Kinesiology is a gentle, safe and non-invasive technique. If there is pain, the kinesiologist will be very attentive to not cause your dog any discomfort when performing a correction involving physical contact. A detailed history taken at the beginning of the session will allow the kinesiologist to know which parts of the animal’s body should be touched with care or avoided.
What to expect from a Kinesiology session
The kinesiologist will first meet and discuss the issue with you whilst taking a detailed history. He/she then carries out the muscle-testing part of the session on a surrogate, i.e. a person who "stands in" for the animal from an energetic point of view. This person is often the owner. The reason it is usually the owner is because if a strong bond exists between the animal and the surrogate it makes the session all the more insightful. A Kinesiology session can be a beautiful way to enhance the pet-owner relationship.
ALTERNATIVE HEALING & BLOG DISCLAIMER
Alternative healing articles and any other advice featured in this blog do not claim to replace any conventional veterinary treatment. This is an educational blog for Beagle owners to read about alternative options that we as Beagle owners have tried ourselves and seen positive outcomes. We do not post anything we have not experienced positively and will never endorse anything in which we do not believe through positive experience.
Kinesiology and other healing modalities do not diagnose, cure or prescribe, as these activities are the prerogative of veterinarians. Kinesiology may provide a different, energy-based approach to allergy support, and potentially allow for a reduction in the use of corticosteroids. As a kinesiologist, I believe that allergies, just like other ailments, may have an emotional and/or mental aspect which is worth addressing. As such, this modality represents a valid complementary therapy to veterinary care.
