Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Kristine Jelstrup, CMFT, CBK, LMT : Central Square Health and Wellness

Kristine Jelstrup has been a natural healthcare practitioner in Cambridge for more than 17 years, using various forms of Applied Kinesiology to find the root cause of health problems whether physical, chemical or emotional. Once identified, the blockages are released and organ systems are supported with nutrition to restore the body to good health.

Applied Kinesiology was developed in the early 1960s by American chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart. He discovered that particular physical symptoms were often related to weaknesses in particular muscles. Goodheart proposed that a language between doctors and patients could be created by testing those muscles and working to strengthen them, which he noticed led to the improvement or disappearance of other health problems.

Using this system to evaluate the structural, chemical and mental aspects of a person, Goodheart believed that muscle testing could ascertain which therapies, including nutrition, diet, manipulation and exercise, would help to restore well-being.

Services provided: Jelstrup is certified in the Morphogenic Field Technique and Bio-Kinetics Health Systems. She is also trained in Koren Specific Technique and Nutrition Response Testing.

Areas of specialty: Jelstrup has had great success with structural issues like low back, neck, knee and hip pain, chemical issues like hormone imbalances, migraine headaches, low energy, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, gastro intestinal disorders, food and seasonal allergies, and emotional issues like anxiety, fear and depression.

Healing/healthy living philosophy: “It’s really very simple,” she says. “If you give the body what it needs and take away what is harming it, it will heal. The challenge is to figure out what those things are; by using different forms of Applied Kinesiology, I can do that.”
