The Holistic Approach of Kinesiology/Manual Therapy
Kinesiology is the scientific study of the mechanics of body movements. Manual therapy is a holistic approach that consists of many techniques, including: joint mobilizations, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, fluid techniques, scar work and strain-counterstrain release. Our Kinesiologist/Manual Therapist in Saskatoon offers a unique treatment that blends the two modalities of kinesiology and manual therapy.

Kinesiologists learn a variety of subjects such as exercise physiology, human anatomy, nutrition, biomechanics, motor learning and development, and psychology. These studies allow a kinesiologist to take a holistic approach to treatment to help provide a proper plan to aide in a person’s goals to help improvement health and wellness. The main focus of a kinesiologist is to examine the biomechanics of a person and help provide exercises and stretches to strengthen areas of the body where imbalances are seen.
Manual therapy looks not only to the structures of the body, but also to the fluids of the body (lymph, blood, cerebrospinal fluid) and looks to treat joints, muscles, and organs that may be inhibiting and/or over-facilitating the pathways of nerves and fluids. By using subtle hands-on techniques, a manual therapist can restore the structure and function of the affected structures to allow the promotion of movement, health and vitality in the body.
