The Chiron Centre is probably the busiest kinesiology practice in the UK and one of the most progressive – the ground-breaking ‘Quantum K’ system was developed within these walls. We all have similar core training and regularly exchange new ideas and best practices to ensure we stay at the cutting edge of our profession.

What is Kinesiology?

The human body is like a living computer. It knows the condition of every organ, every muscle and every cell within it. This information is fully available to us, if only we could access it….

Fortunately, a way was found in the 1960s by Doctor George Goodheart. He discovered that messages from the brain to the muscles could be disrupted by any number of stresses, including foods, hormones, emotions, chemicals and physical ailments. By gently testing a relevant muscle, he could find imbalances throughout the body and, more importantly, identify an appropriate correction.

This relatively new therapy has since spread across the world. It is extremely flexible, allowing therapists to personalise their treatments within the overall umbrella of muscle testing. As we have studied very widely, we can tailor each session to the specific needs of the client, including techniques based on:

  • Acupressure
  • Homoeopathy
  • Spiritual healing
  • Energy healing
  • Quantum K
  • Naturopathy

Our own style of kinesiology is particularly suitable for people with a variety of seemingly unconnected symptoms that hinder conventional diagnosis and treatment.

For those who have suffered for years without really knowing why, kinesiology can provide the missing answers.

The treatment itself

Kinesiology TestA kinesiology session is relaxing and enjoyable, lasting up to one hour. After an initial consultation, you will lie fully clothed on a couch. We will then measure changes in the response to gentle pressure on your arm while either problem areas on the body are touched, or a small test vial containing the suspected food, toxin or hormone is placed on your body.

The initial session normally has a diagnostic element to it. We will perform an ‘M.O.T’, assessing the health of the major organs and establishing whether any toxins, stresses, or structural imbalances are affecting their performance. These underlying causes can then be linked back to any presenting symptoms and a range of actions agreed as the first steps towards better health. We will also look into any emotional stresses that may be contributing to your symptoms, this is a crucial part of most sessions.

Any subsequent sessions will normally be at 4-6 week intervals. We will check progress against the original findings and trigger whatever level of detoxing is required.

There will usually be a strong emphasis on the hidden, subtle imbalances that have been suppressed over your lifetime. There may be belief systems set in childhood to explore and unhelpful emotions to embrace and release. A kinesiology session connects you with your wounds in a safe and loving environment. There may be a sense of lightness after the session, but there may also be emotions to feel into afterwards as you engage lovingly with what you have previously locked away.

Client Satisfaction Survey – Andrew Kemp

Following principles developed at Bristol University, I conducted a detailed survey between July 15th and November 15th 2005. It included every new client that I started seeing during this period and saw at least twice. This is a short timescale, but the 36 qualifying case studies are more than enough to produce statistically significant results.

Each client assessed their progress at the beginning of each session, so the results of the first treatment were established at the start of the second. I used an assessment scale of 0-10, where 0 is as good as it could be over the last week and 10 as bad as it could be, so a diminishing graph is good! Here is a brief summary of the results:


The survey period was very short, with on average only 9 weeks between start and finish of the monitoring. For clients who had suffered chronic symptoms for an average period of 7 years (with a median of 4 years), such a quick response is very significant.

It is also worth noting that not one person reported worsening health during this study, despite the risk of personal circumstances adversely influencing the results.

The headline results are:

  • The average overall health rating improved by over 1.5 points from its starting position, that is a 33% improvement towards good health.
  • The average symptom reduction was nearly 2.5 points, a 33% improvement from its starting position towards being symptom free.
  • No-one recorded worsening levels during the survey.
  • 88% of participants, that is close to 9 out of 10, recorded improvement in their measured symptoms during the survey period (some of the remaining 12% improved afterwards).
  • No supplements of any type were used or recommended for any clients. The improvements arose solely from the kinesiology protocols
  • Over 90% of participants were referrals from other therapists or clients.

Finally, here are one or two testimonials I have received to re-inforce the human aspect of these treatments:

“Dear Andrew, I just wanted to reiterate my thank you for an interesting and challenging session last time. I am amazed and heart warmed by your skills, by kinesiology and your personal intent and care.” Daphne

“Andrew, to say things are much better is a gross understatement. I think the accumulative effect of the sessions have come together now, I feel fantastic, my excess weight is reducing because I am eating normally, I have got 90% of my brain function back AT LAST. I have not been this up for this time of year for so many years I didn’t realise just how depressed I was. I am going from strength to strength now, I can say without doubt this is due to my sessions with you because it has been effortless for me and as you know effort is not one of my strengths. Also it has given me the strength to face my nemesis the dreaded “sugar”. It has been like playing with a little kitten not the demon lion of my imagination. 3 weeks now sugar free that has never happend before ever and no cravings is nothing short of a miracle.” Ray

“Just to say a big THANK YOU for all your wonderful work Andrew. It is so fantastic to have me back and all my energy”. Jane

“You have worked your magic again. So far I have been well and feeling full of energy.” Shirley

“I can let go of my stuck habits and old thought patterns and that is very liberating. …So you can tell how grateful I am for your help.” Anne
