Cathy Hughes has been practicing and educating for over 25 years. Her fields of expertise are many. Colour Therapy, Sound Therapy, Reiki, Meditation and Aromatic Kinesiology are just a few. Cathy also counsels those who wish to make positive changes in their lives.
Aromatic Kinesiology is Cathy's main method of assisting those who wish to discover emotional well being. Colour and Sound therapy is added where needed.
Aromatic Kinesiology was created in 1992 by Robbi Zeck, an Australian naturopath, aromatherapist, kinesiologist, and coach who started teaching her powerful method based on thirty-five years of research and clinical experience. Aromatic Kinesiology offers the opportunity to discover and map the profoundly complex effects that essential oils can have on us deeply on a soul level, and thus gives directions on how to apply them in dealing with feelings and emotions. As a kinesiologist, Robbi has been observing how messages transmitted by essential oils help people integrating emotional experiences from their lives. Kinesiology combined with aromatherapy developed over the years as Robbi was making innumerable individual sessions and workshops. Led by her passion, all this valuable experience and knowledge took shape in the form of a book called The Blossoming Heart: Aromatherapy for Healing and Transformation.
Kinesiology is a muscle testing tool used to access the primary cause/causes of physical or emotional imbalances in the body. It can be used to ‘ask’ the body what it needs to help clear an emotional issue and what is needed to support the body biochemically or emotionally, bringing the whole body into balance. When the primary emotional cause of a condition is identified, Kinesiology is used to choose an aroma to clear the root cause from cellular memory, usually via an acupuncture pressure point or ‘blossom point’. The aroma can also be inhaled to clear deep state emotional blocks to help the client move forward in life. Following a treatment, the oil may need to be used at home for days or weeks, depending on the individual.
The method involves muscle testing for one out of sixty essential oils. The oils are divided into four categories and each has a “moving away” and a “moving toward” emotion. The practitioner then determines how the oil is to be used during a session. Aromatic Kinesiology takes the receiver into a deep place of emotional quietude and balance. There are questions to ask oneself, meditations and visualizations as well as counselling techniques and affirmations.
