Ways Kinesiology and Heart Healing Can Help You Discover the Ability to Heal Yourself - Interview with Sarah Jensen 

When you allow yourself to let go, your body can naturally tell you what it needs in order to heal. That is exactly what a practitioner of Kinesiology and Heart Healing does. They are the facilitators and translators during a session and can decipher what it is that your body is pointing towards.

Tell me about your professional background.

I’m a reformed office worker turned healer, and I’ve spent a lifetime looking inside and outside myself for the ‘answers’; for ways to better understand myself, other people, the world, and where I “fit” into it. It’s taken me on a wild ride, that’s for sure, and I’ve trained in everything from Life Coaching and Reiki, to Kinesiology and Multi-Dimensional Soul Healing. It’s been quite the adventure learning how all of the puzzle pieces fit together in a way that’s totally me, and it’s really special to be able to bring life experience, professional training, intuition and healing together in a way that helps my clients create real, lasting and positive change in their lives.

What made you want to get into this field?

Looking back, the Universe has been nudging me in this direction my whole life. I’ve always been a sensitive soul, feeling things incredibly deeply, and it’s like that was my unofficial invitation to the spiritual party. In opening my heart to the experience of healing myself I’ve learned so much, and I’m now able to use many of those learnings to support others in their healing process. 

Over the years, I’ve explored many mainstreams, esoteric and spiritual tools, techniques and modalities that it’s like I’ve been gathering goodies for my Mary Poppins carpet bag of healing magic all along.  And, when it came to studying kinesiology, it didn’t hurt to receive some loving encouragement from my kinesiologist (who saw the healer in me long before I was ready to!).

Ultimately though, what’s shaped much of my business and the way I work with people, is a deep desire to help others. To help them not only see, but believe, in their own magic. To know how incredible they are, and to live a life that has true and real meaning for them. Any day I get to do that is a day well spent!

What has been your favourite aspect of this work?

It’s cliché, I know, but there are so many things I adore about this work. I love that my clients walk out of a session feeling a little lighter and more self-connected than when they walked in. I love the magic of being invited into another person’s energy; of being a translator and facilitator for their body, their heart, and their energy. I cherish the moments when a client’s heart opens after being closed for so long and they let love in. I love that I can meet a person for the very first time and they feel safe to share things with me that they’ve never told another living soul – the pure relief and healing they experience in the sharing of that information is amazing. And I love that there’s no end to the expansion, growth, and magic of this work. I know I’ll be learning for the rest of my life, and that everything I experience in my own healing, or learn through education and training, helps me be of greater service to the amazing souls I get to work with. It’s pretty incredible!

Can you explain what Kinesiology and Heart Healing are and what a typical session is like from start to finish?

Absolutely! In Kinesiology, we use muscle testing so your body can tell us what it needs us to know, and what it needs us to do, to create balance, healing and harmony for your highest good. Essentially, my role is that of a translator and facilitator for your body so your body can heal itself.

Heart Healing is an expansion of this where we lean even deeper into the realms of energy, clear old heart hurts and heal old wounds – in this lifetime, dimension and beyond. Heart healing is about fully opening to love; to self-love, to loving others and receiving love in return, and to feeling safe, protected and nurtured in the energy of love. 

In a session, we’ll typically spend the first 10 to 20 minutes talking and gathering information, so you can share what you’re feeling and experiencing physically, emotionally, and energetically. This gives us context for the session and a jumping off point. From there, I’ll invite you to make yourself comfy on a massage table (clothes on, shoes off, blankets available for extra coziness) and we’ll use muscle testing (and sometimes pendulum testing) to give your body a voice. 

For the rest of the session (around 40 to 50 minutes) it’s all about collecting information and supporting your body to heal using what we call ‘corrections’. Your body might point us to books, charts or lists as we gather information, or we might use healing tools like acupressure, meridian therapy, chakra balancing, energy healing, crystals, essential oils, sound, colour, and other magic to balance the body. I like to say to my clients that it’s like going on a treasure hunt with your body as the guide and your arm (which we use to muscle test) as the compass.

We round out the session with a quick debrief, a check in around any home support your body directed us to, and the usual post-session admin tasks (like making payment and booking a follow up session if you’d like one). 

What sort of health challenges can Kinesiology & Heart Healing be effective for and why?

The magic of kinesiology and energy healing is you can literally use it to support any and every health challenge. Because we’re essentially giving your body a voice and an opportunity to speak, it can guide us where it needs us to go, let us know what’s happening on all levels and layers of the body, and point us in the direction of the support the body most needs to heal itself.

Some of the things I regularly work with clients around include anxiety, self-worth, self-love, self-acceptance, and self-belief. In the physical realm, clients come to me experiencing stress, tension, headaches, hormonal issues, chronic illness, or body aches and pain. I also do a lot of heart healing, which includes supporting people through relationship breakdowns or challenging family dynamics, and healing the hurts which cause our hearts to contract or close.

Not only that, kinesiology and healing aren’t only reserved for those experiencing symptoms or struggles. They’re also powerful tools to support personal growth, expansion, and stepping into your bigger vision. Part of what we do is identify the beliefs, patterns, and stories which are creating blocks to your desired feelings and life experiences, and then lovingly ‘reprogramming’ them so your conscious and subconscious minds can work with (rather than against) each other to create the outcomes you want in life. I like to call it a very intentional ‘software upgrade’ for the body, mind, and soul (where the client gets to choose what the new software creates in their reality). It’s pretty cool!

Ways Kinesiology and Heart Healing Can Help You Discover the Ability to Heal Yourself - Interview with Sarah Jensen

Is there a technique or modality in your practice that you have found to be the most beneficial to the people you work with?

One of the things I love about kinesiology and heart healing is that every single session is so different. Each lovely soul who comes to see me has their own complex and beautiful set of thoughts, feelings, experiences, struggles and dreams. What that means is that every session will unfold exactly as it’s meant to, with the client’s body in the driver’s seat. 

Having said that, there are definitely tools my clients’ bodies are asking for regularly right now and they’re all about nurturing. Things like acupressure and Emotional Stress Release technique (ESR), crystals on the body, sound (including mantra, toning and other sound frequencies), smell (essential oils, energy sprays, teas), light codes or sacred geometry, and heart healing.

{note: if you’d like to link to an article + video on ESR (which is amazing to soothe anxiety and stress) I wrote this article which is published on the website of the kinesiology clinic I work at} 😊

What are Kinesiology and Heart Healing like from the client’s point of view?

A client once said to me that a session is “like six months of therapy without having to relive the trauma.”  And a kinesiologist I work with likens it to having a hypnotherapy session where you’re 100% conscious and awake. As for me, I like to say it’s a chance to heal, clear and take out the energetic garbage, without the heavy lifting. 

Really though, it’s an opportunity for you to lie down and relax while your body heals itself. Sessions are gentle and nurturing (some of my clients even fall asleep!) but sessions can also be lots of fun too – it will just depend on what the client most needs on any given day. And a common thing I hear as clients ready themselves to head home after a session is that they feel lighter, calmer, and more grounded and relaxed (and who doesn’t want that!?).

What would you say to someone sceptical about this modality and its effectiveness? How do you approach that?

I’d say book a session, show up with an open heart and an open mind, and see what happens. At the end of the day, we can’t know if something works for us unless we try it. If you try it and it’s not your jam, that’s okay, but you might just love it and experience some beautiful benefits from it too.

To expand on this a little, I’ve had clients come for a session because a parent, friend, family member or other practitioner kinda made them (and, in that case, perhaps they kinda don’t want to be there). Rather than letting it be awkward, I speak openly with my clients about it. I acknowledge that they might be feeling sceptical or unsure, I thank them for coming along despite their reservations, and I invite them to hang with me and just see how they feel. I reassure them that their body is the boss of the balance and that we’re working with the wholehearted intention of creating healing outcomes for their highest good. I let them know I’m just a translator and facilitator for their body – to help their body heal itself, and I invite the client to ask lots questions and to speak freely during the session. I offer to talk them through what’s happening if they’d like me to. I also reassure the client that they’re in a safe space, that this is time that’s just for them, and, if nothing else, they get to lie down and be looked after for about an hour (and how often does that happen in day-to-day life?!).

Besides these modalities do you have any universal health and well-being tips that you’d like to share?

I’m more about encouraging and inviting people to experiment, explore, and discover what works best for them. Less prescriptive and lots more play. 

I think it’s also important to acknowledge that what works for us right now may not support us six months from now, so it’s great to keep checking back in with yourself and asking yourself great questions. For example, how am I feeling? What do I need right now? What’s working for me right now? What practices are supporting me? What am I craving? What am I curious about? And continuing to follow the nudges and let our toolkit of wellbeing practices grow and change as we do.

I’m currently loving:

  • Lunch time walks in our neighbourhood – enjoying the sunshine and scents of the beautiful flowers in bloom.
  • Lazy Sundays reading books in bed.
  • Healing and soothing with sound – whether it’s consciously listening to the birds chirping outside my window, infusing mantra or kundalini chants into my day, or soaking up the delicious energy of a sound bath or singing bowl session.

If there was one piece of advice you could give to someone who is struggling, what would it be?

Even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, you are loved, you matter, and it’s going to be okay. Ask for help if you need it, even if it feels hard, even if it means seeing a therapist or wellness practitioner before you tell family and friends how you’re feeling, but reach out and seek the support you need. You’re not alone. xx

What resources would you recommend? (books, podcasts, websites that you’ve found helpful)

Oh goodness, could I write a BIG list! But you know what, I think the biggest gift you can give yourself is to follow the breadcrumbs and your own curiosities. What’s piquing your interest right now? What keeps landing in your orbit that you just can’t ignore anymore? What do you want to know more about? Where is your energy pulling or guiding you? Let yourself off the hook of feeling like you should be reading or listening to what everyone else is consuming and let your heart be your guide. It’s got your back. 😊
