Statement of the ÖBK
Kinesiology explained in Austrian

Educative model

The basic tenor in kinesiological work is the educational model, that is:


~ meaning learning as a lifelong process ~

is the generic term for all kinesiological directions.

Kinesiology is exclusively about new learning experiences / learning processes and insights into which the client is accompanied and not about diagnosis, healing and treatment of patients.
Thus also the term of learning experiences a meaning extension.

Learning is not only understood as pure knowledge acquisition in the conventional sense (school, academic knowledge) but also as the following:

Experiencing and experiencing
– of an improved physical condition,
– a more stable mental condition,
– new and expanded thought structures and patterns,
– of health-oriented living and eating habits,
– of balanced emotional patterns, etc.

Since every change presents the brain with new tasks and challenges, the whole life can be seen as a constant learning process, as mentioned before.

The different directions of kinesiology contribute to and support this learning process, whereby the responsibility for all learning progress and changes always remains with the client himself.

His energies, attuned to the new, process and transform what has been learned in a subjective way for his own good.

Common to all kinesiological directions is muscle monitoring (also called muscle testing). This biofeedback is made possible by the spindle cell mechanism of the muscles. This always reports the length extension of the muscle to the brain, so that it can, in case of danger, avoid injuries by switching off the muscle.


Stressors of various kinds cause electromagnetic confusion in the brain and cause it to shut down the test muscle.

Under the term stressor, kinesiology understands triggers or causes of a blockage, which arise in the body or are brought to it from the outside.

External stressors:
  • Dehydration
  • Wrong diet
  • Stressful situations
  • Electromagnetic radiation (fluorescent tubes, cell phone, television, computer,…)
  • Biochemical influences (toxins, dyes and preservatives, hypersensitivity to vaccinations,
    drugs, nicotine, alcohol,…)
  • Geopathic influences (water veins, faults,…)
  • Social environment, etc.
Stressors from within:
  • Emotional states
  • Structural problems
  • Traumas, phobias
  • Belief and thought patterns
  • Genetic stresses
  • Pressure to perform

A test muscle gives the kinesiologist information about energy blockages or the degree and type of stress. With the respective balancing techniques the energy blockage/stress can be released. Through the resulting learning experience, the / the client can recognize and internalize the learning process holistically.
