Outlining what a client can expect and should know when attending a Kinesiology Consultation.

This information is a guide to enable the client to have awareness of the Kinesiologist meeting with professional and ethical requirements as viewed by the AIK Ltd.

The Kinesiologist should be a member of an industry peak governing body such as the AIK Ltd, AKA Inc or ATMS. If they are not a member, then this practitioner is not bound by our requirements, including a Professional Code of Conduct and Ethics, recognition of their qualifications by an industry peak governing body and may not have appropriate insurance and other items necessary within our professional industry.

The Kinesiologist will have different options for contact – please view their webpages, check their professional membership status and if you wish, please check the industry peak governing bodies’ website to ensure that they are a current financial member of their advertised memberships.

Each Kinesiologist is governed by State legislation for their profession under the Unregistered Healthcare Worker Legislation. Each state has slightly different requirements including disclosing to the client a complaints process and contact details.

Upon the client having evidence that the Kinesiologist has met the above; here is a general guide on what to expect when you contact a Kinesiologist:

  • The Kinesiologist will have different contact options for you to create a consultation. The Kinesiologist will have a Consultation Form for you to complete prior to the consultation or at the consultation. The Kinesiologist may relay this information to you in a format that is suitable for both the client and practitioner.
  • The Kinesiologist will ensure that the client has information on their pricing structure for a consultation, plus the acceptable method of payment and documentation, such as an invoice or receipt for your records.
  • Some practitioners work from offices, clinics and some will operate from a space in their home set aside for clinical work. The consultations can last from thirty (30) minutes to one and a half (1.5) hours, depending on the client presenting the requested support. Follow up consultations may be required depending on the duration and complexity of the issue. The fees charged may vary from $60 to over $200, again depending on all factors, including the qualifications of the practitioner.
  • Kinesiology is a touch therapy modality involving a client and a practitioner using Muscle Monitoring. It is a sacred contract between two people with both working together to achieve a positive outcome. The practitioner will explain to the client about Kinesiology, including their qualifications in this field.
  • The practitioner will need to obtain a detailed history from the client before a Kinesiology session can occur, including major injuries and diseases, medication and supplements, lifestyle questions, etc. The reason for the consultation will be discussed.
  • The Kinesiology balance/session: Most practitioners will use a massage table for the session, but you may sit or stand for periods too, depending on what you are working on. At no time will the client be completely naked or the practitioner touch areas of the body that is inappropriate, however, it may be required for the client to remove some of their clothing to perform certain aspects of the session. Although Kinesiology is not massage, there are some massage principles used by some Kinesiologists.
  • The Kinesiologist will explain to the client during the session what is needed to be done so the client has awareness prior to a technique being performed.
  • A Kinesiology client can experience benefits or outcomes after just one session. Please note this varies from client to client depending on what is being worked on for the client – it may take multiple sessions to achieve the desired outcome. The Kinesiologist will discuss this with the client. Long standing issues can often be complex  ‘like peeling back layers of an onion’.
  • Future consultations: Your Kinesiologist will normally talk to you about the number of sessions required and frequency.

The AIK Ltd trusts the above information is helpful to a member of the public seeking a consultation with a Kinesiologist for the first time or subsequent consultation.
