A number of my friends have been to see someone practicing Kinesthesiology - its got to do with movement, muscular strength and a connection to emotional states.

They speak well of it but it sounds like a major scam to me - [Thwack] [Thwack]

Kinesthesiology is the study of movement and its physiological properties.

Someone's scamming your friends, all right. Emotions are not part of Kines.' field of study.

I believe that's "Kinesiology", Vorlon dude.

Kinesthesia is the sense we have of how our various limbs and joints are situated. It's the kinesthetic sense that allows you to touch your nose with your eyes closed.

I've never heard of kinesthesiology.

From your original description, it sounds like T'ai Chi...

This is not in any way, shape, or form an endorsement of this, but here is a link to someone practicing something similar to that described in the OP.
Spiritual Kinesthesiology

And for $5,000, you can get Clear, too!
