Pause lock

“Pause Lock” is a technique used during an energy kinesiology balance to continually hold a piece of information within neurological and energetic circuits of the body over time. The Kinesiologist holds the information by activating the hip joint via putting their feet together and apart.

Pause lock has three primary functions:

1. To isolate an imbalance so that it can be further investigated – eg. Finding the most appropriate correction for an imbalance.

2. To record an imbalance that has been accessed consciously and to allow it to be worked on without need of further conscious involvement – eg. It is difficult for a person to maintain conscious awareness of or focus on a painful site or continually think about a stressful situation without the mind wandering. If the mind wanders, there’s no guarantee that you are still working on the original issue. By isolating such imbalances in pause lock, the person’s conscious awareness is then free to wander to other unrelated areas.

3. To isolate and record successive layers of compensating imbalances via stacking to reveal the underlying cause, which when corrected will also correct all these layers of compensations.

The jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) is a second pause lock mechanism. It allows for information to be swapped between the jaw and the hips of the kinesiologist, representing two separate pause lock mechanisms on the same person. This allows new information to be stacked in, creating a sequence of information about the original imbalance and helping to reveal the underlying cause of the issue.
