Kinesiology in Bristol

Between us all, we have about 20,000 hours of therapy time behind us, but still have a core desire to keep learning and expanding our skills. Kinesiology is very flexible, so we have looked for healing techniques from around the world to add to what we can offer to you, from basic food intolerance testing to helping you find your true soul’s calling. We aim to accommodate a broad range of needs and belief systems.

What is Kinesiology? 

Kinesiology Test

Here is how our Federation describes it: “Kinesiology was originally developed by an American chiropractor called George Goodheart. He found that by testing muscle response before and after he made chiropractic corrections he achieved better results for his patients. As time progressed he was able to make a connection between various muscles and acupuncture meridians. By testing these muscles the kinesiologist can get a picture of what is happening in your meridian system and how this may be affecting you. 

So, kinesiology can be seen as a blend of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western techniques which enable a kinesiologist to treat you as an individual.  Each person’s session is unique to them. 

Kinesiology uses a range of gentle yet extremely powerful techniques. Kinesiology also allows the kinesiologist to draw on other healing techniques and modalities and integrate them into the session where appropriate and indicated by the muscle response”.

Kinesiology is an umbrella therapy that allows the practitioner to bring in a range of tools underneath the muscle test. Every session is unique and every practitioner unique in the way they practice. If you are looking to choose the most appropriate practitioner for you, please do read our personal profiles within the therapists section and also the short description below. There is no right and wrong choice here, all of us can help you make whatever changes and improvements you are looking for, so please do trust your intuition and confidently choose the person and approach that feels right for you.

Claire and Andrew tend to practice using an arm as an indicator to access the body’s innate wisdom, but thereafter use few protocols. We go on a journey with our clients, exploring all the layers of their presenting issues, the physical imbalances, dietary issues, core beliefs, ancestral inheritances and issues at a soul level that may need healing. It is a journey of discovery with lots of information and lots of energy work with influences drawn from traditions around the world including shamanism. We can look at your needs from the level of dietary changes and toxicity through to invasive energies and soul retrievals.

Helen values each person’s journey with integrity, respect and compassion. She uses the muscles to get bio-feedback from the body’s systems. The muscles indicate a priority and bespoke course of action for each individual. No two sessions are the same.

is an experienced trainer and practitioner. She practises Kinesiology in combination with other healing tools including Reiki, N.L.P. and sound, using muscles as bio-feedback to access the body’s innate wisdom. A client can choose a goal for their session. Once information is received from the muscles, energy can be moved in the body to increase vitality. Helen will usually use multiple muscles to bring the patterning into the body, giving awareness of a definite change of state. Kinesiology is a non-invasive, profound experience, which increases choice and maximises performance on all levels. Come and join the fun and feel great!

Client testimonials – Andrew

“I just wanted to share my experiences since meeting with you on Monday. I can’t really put into words how lifted & vibrant .. and dare I say it happy… I’ve felt from the moment I left. You literally have lifted my spirit..

For the first time in years I feel hope & an excitement for life ..  instead of dread & crippling fear. I have shifted from being very stuck to being able to envisage change. I am less anxious & feel more able to catch the dark thoughts before they consume me. An old friend was in tears at my mere presentation & demeanour. My partner hasn’t seen me or even heard me talk in such an energised & positive way for years.

It’s hard to believe & I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart… that had split into 3 & didn’t want to leave my heavy head 🙂 . When it did budge I physically felt a space open up, creating room for positivity & joy where previously there was none. ” Toria 2019

Session Fees from 1/11/2019

Practitioner Fee Appointment duration
Claire Kedward £47 1 hour
Andrew Kempleton £40** (£2 of which goes to the Rainforest Trust) 45 minutes (Existing or new clients)
Andrew Kempleton £75** (£4 of which goes to the Rainforest Trust) 90 minutes (option for new clients only)
Helen Wilson £60* 1 hour


** From the 1st November 2019, my standard treatment cost is £40 for a 45 minute session. I have reduced the treatment duration and cost as I was working with a 3 month waiting list and this was impeding my capacity to support clients to the degree many desired. This way, although the sessions are shorter, I can see more people each week and maintain continuity and momentum.

For new clients, I offer the choice of either having a standard 45 minute session for £40, or a 90 minute session for £75. The choice is up to you, depending on the depth of the issues you wish to address. If you just want a taster, or to explore diet or symptoms at the physical level, 45 minutes should be plenty of time. If you want to dive deep into their emotional, energetic and spiritual causes, then I suggest 90 minutes.

Either way, please do arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete a questionnaire, or print off the pdf below and complete it in advance, bringing it with you on the day.


You will also notice that I pass on a share of my income to the Rainforest Trust. The reason for this is explained in my biography on the therapist page.


*concessions are available on request in advance of the appointment for those on benefits.

Please remember that we are all self-employed, so if you don’t turn up, we don’t get paid! If you miss an appointment or cancel within 24 hours, whatever the circumstances, you will be asked whether you wish to make a voluntary contribution to mitigate the losses incurred.

NB : An initial consultation will require the completion of a questionnaire, so please arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment time to complete the paperwork in our waiting area. We can email you a questionnaire if that is easier for you.
