Osteopathy and kinesiology

Sep 22, 2022 | Medicine and treatment


I once took my child to a homeopath practitioner. She was also a kinesiologist My child was having bad dreams at the time Every other night We didn’t go for the dreams we had gone due to a physical medical issue but the questions of dreams were asked So the lady was using a kinesiologsit marker to set her body back in balance However she used a music therapy to do this I told her to stop when she played the music but she said I have to complete it and it stopped after that anyway My daughter did stop having bad dreams But I’m really worried sick of guilt that i have exposed her to such evil and maybe some spirits etc I have no idea We never went back to the lady Is there anything I can do to undoe the effects We pray out protection adhkarr daily and read daily too alhmdulilah But I am still worried


Kinesiology is the scientific study of the human body and its movement patterns, while applied kinesiology is an alternative medical practice which is not dissimilar to chiropractic treatment. Its origins are secular, and thus, seeking medical attention from this form of alternative medicine does not pose any theological or creedal issues, so long as one ascribes cure and efficacy to Allah.

Nonetheless, if the treatment involves an unlawful practice, this must be avoided. For example, music therapy is not permissible as music is unlawful (haram). Moreover, if the practitioner uses some other-worldly incantations, you should avoid them also and seek thorough verification of what is taking place.

As for the second part of your question, one cannot ascertain if there have been any evil effects on your daughter unless some signs become visible. This would have been a small exposure, and we pray that no evil effect will become visible. Maintain the protection adhkar upon your children regularly, and do not go back to this practitioner. In future, ensure that you inform yourself of the procedures that will take place. Especially in matters of halal and haram, do not allow any such practitioner or caregiver to bulldoze over you and administer haram or questionable treatments.

May Allah keep you steadfast.

حاشية ابن عابدين = رد المحتار ط الحلبي» (6/ 348):وفي السراج ودلت المسألة أن الملاهي كلها حرام ويدخل عليهم بلا إذنهم لإنكار المنكر قال ابن مسعود صوت اللهو والغناء ينبت النفاق في القلب كما ينبت الماء النبات. قلت: وفي البزازية استماع صوت الملاهي كضرب قصب ونحوه حرام لقوله – عليه الصلاة والسلام – «استماع الملاهي معصية والجلوس عليها فسق والتلذذ بها كفر» أي بالنعمة فصرف الجوارح إلى غير ما خلق لأجله كفر بالنعمة لا شكر فالواجب كل الواجب أن يجتنب كي لا يسمع لما روي «أنه – عليه الصلاة والسلام – أدخل أصبعه في أذنه عند سماعه
