A Holistic and Natural Healthcare System
Systematic Kinesiology is a complete form of natural health care that accesses the body’s innate wisdom to discover what is needed for healing. Using what’s called ‘manual muscle testing’ I am able to obtain bio-feedback from the body. This takes the guess work out of healing, allowing me to investigate what the root cause of the issue is and what is needed to restore balance.
Whether you have some simple symptoms which you would like addressed, or longer-term chronic health complaints, Kinesiology can help. It’s also a great way to maintain health and prevent illness, allowing any imbalances to be found and corrected before they turn into more serious complaints.
Holistic and Integrative Healthcare System
Unlike the conventional medical approach, Systematic Kinesiology takes a whole-person approach, looking at the emotional, structural, chemical and energetic aspects of dis-ease.
Once imbalances are found I will use the testing process to identify what would be the most effective way to assist you to optimise your physiological, emotional and physical well being. Kinesiology is truly holistic as it incorporates a wide range of natural and holistic techniques to help you find the quickest and most effective route to healing. This might include:
- Nutritional changes and supplements
- Herbal teas, tinctures and remedies
- Acupressure or lymphatic massage
- Emotional resolution or release (including EFT and Hypnotherapy)
- Energy work using meridian lines, chakras or neurovascular points
- Cranial work
- Lifestyle advice and changes
Kinesiology can be used in many ways and there are many techniques for addressing different issues. It is gentle, safe and can even be used on the elderly, inform and children. Some people use it on animals. We can use kinesiology to:
- Identify and correct imbalances in the body before they turn into more serious problems
- Explore the cause of more serious complaints and chronic illness
- Test products, foods and supplements
- Discover individual nutritional needs and sensitivities
- Identify toxins or microbes in the body
- Determine the best routes for healing
- Enhance brain function and coordination
- Release emotions and stress
- Relieve physical pain and tension
Who is it for?
Unfortunately, most people come to me when they have tried everything else.
- Your doctors, consultants and medication didn’t resolve your issue.
- You’ve been to numerous appointments and had the tests. Maybe you have a diagnosis, but there is no treatment for it so are left on your own.
- Maybe your test results came back fine but you still feel bad.
- You want to get to the root of the health issues that trouble you, once and for all and are no longer willing to suppress the symptoms with medication.
- You may have seen lots of different natural practitioners but none have led to permanent change.

- You take lots of supplements but you don’t know if they are helping.
- You want your quality of life back and are willing to make the changes necessary in your lifestyle to make this happen.
For the last 15 years I have been on a natural health journey, tackling my own health issues which have included depression, anxiety, digestive complaints, thyroid problems, hearing loss, tinnitus and vestibular neuritis. I’ve studied and explored the healing properties of nutrition, herbs, supplements, energy work and psycho-emotional work and now am privileged to be able to incorporate this to my work with clients.
I’ve been in your position and I aim to provide high quality, grounded, reliable advice to my clients that they can trust so you don’t have to search endlessly for help. I use coaching and hypnotherapy to help my clients implement the necessary lifestyle changes to achieve long-term healing.
What are sessions like?
I will begin by taking a comprehensive medical and lifestyle case history so I can understand what is happening for you, possible cause and effects and track the development of any illness. This helps me to decide on which routes to explore first.
I will then begin testing you by placing your arms, legs or head into specific positions and applying a light pressure against the muscle that is being tested. The muscle tests do not require any physical strength and you remain fully clothed throughout. I will demonstrate to you how it is working and you will see for yourself how weaknesses are shown and then resolved.
Are there any other costs?
Nutritional changes are a key part of treatment and it is likely that your body will require a range of supplements to support healing. When you’ve been deficient for a time, either because you haven’t been eating well or your body hasn’t been effectively absorbing nutrients, you need to provide higher (therapeutic) nutrient doses than food can provide for a period of time until it has ‘stocked up’again. This is in addition to a healthy diet. Sometimes herbs and supplements are needed to help balance the emotions or detoxify the body.
I will always try to find solutions using supplements you already own but there may be other products you need to buy. I will work with you to find the best value, highest quality supplements that have the desired strengthening effect on your body.
How many sessions will I need?
Everyone is different and it will depend on how long you have been unwell and the magnitude of the imbalance. I generally ask clients to see me every 3 weeks for an ongoing period of time so that we can peel away the layers of imbalance to get to the deeper root cause. It can take time, just as it took time for the illness to develop. Leaving time between sessions also allows for any lifestyle changes to settle in the body.
What do I need to do before each session?
- Please bring any natural supplements and remedies you own to every session. I can test these to see which would be beneficial for you to take thereby preventing the need for you to buy more.
- Also bring any medication you are currently taking with you to the sessions.
- Wear comfortable clothes to each session that I can massage through if necessarily. Gym wear is usually a good idea, or leggings, lycra or running pants. Jeans are not ideal.
- Drink water on the day of the session as dehydration can interfere with the results.
- It goes without saying that I will refuse to see clients who have drunk alcohol on the day of the session or who are unable to be fully present due to under or over-the-counter medication.
“Thank you Candice, My acid reflux is no longer a problem and my shoulder ache has gone!”
“Candice helps me work out exactly what supplements I need to address a chronic viral infection. I love having the confirmation of seeing the testing process. It helps me know I am doing the right thing to heal myself”.
“I had a fantastic kinesiology session with Candice. Such an effective way to know exactly what supplements your body needs, for all ailments. As a trainee naturopath, I had a good idea of what to take in general terms but this is highly specific to each individual. Candice is wonderful to work with also and so knowledgeable”.
“A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of receiving a consultation and systematic kinesiology treatment from Candice Luper. Her extensive knowledge about supplements and her attention to detail with her testing really helped further my understanding of why it’s so important to nourish your body appropriately to achieve optimal health. I’ve been following her advice for nearly a month now, and I’m already starting to notice a difference – my energy levels have increased and my appetite has improved greatly. Onwards and upwards. I’m also witnessing changes to the way in which my body regulates itself. I’d thoroughly recommend this practitioner. Thank you Candice!”
“I can thoroughly recommend Candice, who demonstrates much empathy, knowledge and patience during her Kinesiology sessions with me.
As a therapist myself, I find this technique fascinating. It requires seemingly endless study which she has a natural affinity for.
I started receiving energy healing sessions with Candice a few years ago, and over this period, I’ve watched her develop her approach in working more holistically with clients. Over the course of my sessions I have realised a greater ability to deal with my insomnia for example, and I am convinced that you will too, whatever issue it is that currently troubles you.
Candice radiates a beautiful positivity and you cannot fail to leave her sessions feeling renewed and looking forward to making small but significant steps over time towards a healthier future”.
“Candice gave me an excellent kinesiology session and was very attentive and perceptive. She explained the process throughout and worked with me in her diagnosis and remedy on a number of different levels such as emotional and nutritional that produced a tangible very positive result!”
Here are some links to some of the the positive research that has been undertaken so far, demonstrating that manual muscle testing does indeed provide real, replicable results.
Estimating the accuracy of muscle response testing: two randomised-order blinded studies
“Muscle Response Testing has repeatedly demonstrated significant accuracy for distinguishing lies from truths, compared to both intuition and chance. The primary limitation of this study is its lack of generalisability to other applications of Muscle Response Therapy and Manual Muscle Testing”.

Correlation of Manual Muscle Tests and Salivary Hormone Tests in Adrenal Stress Disorder: a Retrospective Case Series Report
“We observed that patients with signs and symptoms of Adrenal Stress Disorder and abnormal hormone levels on salivary hormone testing demonstrate distinct neuromuscular impairments that could be detected using Manual Muscle Testing”
Association of manual muscle tests and mechanical neck pain: results from a prospective pilot study“A symptomatic group of patients with Mechanical Neck Pain demonstrated significantly increased Manual Muscle Testing findings in the form of reduced strength levels compared to a control group. This evidence suggests that the Manual Muscle Testing is potentially a sensitive and specific test for evaluating cervical spine muscular impairments in patients with Mechanical Neck Pain.”Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 2011.
Applied kinesiology management of candidiasis and chronic ear infections: A case history
“..a multi-modal chiropractic system for the evaluation of muscle-joint subluxations [Kinesiology] were useful for the discovery of a number of complex causative factors underlying this patient’s digestive and immune system compromise, as well as her recurring infections and earaches”
Chiropractic Pediatric Research, 2010
Evaluation of Applied Kinesiology meridian techniques by means of surface electromyography (sEMG): demonstration of the regulatory influence of antique acupuncture points
“We demonstrated the central working principles, i.e. sedation and tonification, of Applied Kinesiology through the use of specific acupoints that have an influence on manual muscle tests. Sedation decreases RMS signal in sEMG, whereas tonification increases it. Interfering stimuli from scars were corrected by selective neural therapy”.

Can the ileocecal valve point predict low back pain using manual muscle testing?
“The application of ileocecal valve [ICV] testing as a diagnostic measure of low back pain was found to have excellent measures of sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic competency. This study confirms that the use of this test within the limitations of this study is reliably associated with the presence of low back pain”
