Not Just another Facial Oil - Shenko uses the ancient art of Kinesiology to reveal beautiful skin.





When two of my favourite things collide - I get excited. Shenko brings skin care and Kinesiology together in beautiful energised facial oils, complete with mantras and Gua Shas.


If you know me you know I am a bit of an alternative medicine kinda girl. I head to my kinesiologist when ever I feel a little off. I find it such a great way to deal with imbalances or compromises before they can do too much damage. So when I met Andrea at The Green Edit I was so excited to try her range of facial oils based on these principles.


For me it's 2 fold its the nourishing and nurturing ingredients in the oil which will feel great and treat your skin topically, but the holistic benefits of the essential oils, the massage and the mantra are so special.



With 5 Elements to choose from you can add in a Gua Sha - and you will get a mantra relevant to the oil you choose.


If you are not sure which oil you should get, there is a quiz on the home page, I did this and I was recommended Wood. I love and I have the jade Gua Sha.

Interview with Founder Andrea



Shenko organics is a holistic skincare range founded by Kinesiologist, aromatherapist and holistic facial  therapist Andrea O' Shea,  Shenko organics helps create change in the skin by clearing your meridian and energy pathways. 


I asked Andrea to explain how Kinesiology works and why this is something to work into our skincare and overall wellbeing. She gave me a short answer and long answer and I could not leave any thing out because this just interests me so much, so I will leave it up to you to delve deeper into the interview or just read the short answer, either way, I hope you find it as fascinating as I do. For someone who sees a kinesiology regularly I can highly recommend doing this as a effective way of maintaining good health and preventing illness.



1.  How does Kinesiology work?


Short Answer:


Kinesiology works by using the art of muscle testing. We use the muscles as indicators to find out where there is stress in the body, if it is mental/emotional, physical or biochemical -nutritional. We are working holistically looking at all aspects of the person's health.

Kinesiology works by using the art of muscle testing. We use the muscles as indicators to find out where there is stress in the body, if it is mental/emotional, physical or biochemical -nutritional. We are working holistically looking at all aspects of the person's health. When we undergo stress our muscles weaken- when someone is telling us bad news, they might ask us to sit down as the muscles may weaken and the person could fall. In the same way with Kinesiology we are looking for a stressed muscle response. We are communicating with the body's innate intelligence. The body through the muscles will  indicate where the stress is and which correction is required from a list of  corrections.  Imbalances in the body may relate to stress, injury, nutritional deficiencies, sensitivities, learning difficulties, pain, anxiety or some other cause. Any of these imbalances may be preventing you from achieving what you want in life and from feeling your very best. Professional Kinesiology Practitioners use many different balancing techniques to enable you to release energy blocks, eliminate toxins, reduce tension and stimulate your body’s natural healing ability.  It is non-invasive and pain-free. It brings about awareness and insight  as well as helping you to find solutions and resolve stress, reduce or remove pain, and allows you to move forward to achieve your full potential.


2.  I loved doing the energy quiz, how does this work and can I be a different element on different days?


Short answer:


Based on the Chinese philosophy of health it is said that our body structure, emotional tendencies, temperaments, behaviours, illnesses and moods are a synergy between five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.  In order to restore balance and sustain a healthy life there needs to be an equilibrium between these elements. What can happen is that we can have imbalance within an element and then this shows up physically in the body. In our lives we will be mostly in one phase at a time however some days when we wake up we might feel we need more fire energy (creativity and motivation) or another day you may need some nurturing so you would choose the earth element oil which is nurturing and grounding. 



Delve Deeper:


The five element quiz works on the law of the five elements derived from traditional chinese medicine. We work with the five elements in Kinesiology too. 


Based on the Chinese philosophy of health it is said that our body structure, emotional tendencies, temperaments, behaviours, illnesses and moods are a synergy between five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.   In order to restore balance and sustain a healthy life there needs to be an equilibrium between these elements.Each element supports the others, thus maintaining the stability of the body and balance. What can happen is that we can have imbalance within an element and then this shows up physically in the body. An example is the wood element which relates to the organ of the liver and gallbladder, it relates to the spring phase in your life, tendons and ligaments, and the emotions of anger and resentment.  If we get stuck in this phase physically or emotionally different symptoms can show up in the body and the mind. The quiz is designed to pick up these imbalances. For example imbalance In Wood element can show repressed anger or frustrations, tight tendons in the body, tension in the body, rigid structure and potential headaches.  The person could also have a tendency to overwork and would need to integrate more rest.  In relation to elements phases in our life they are similar to the seasons. We will go through the cycle from wood which is birth, fire which is the adult stage in life, earth the mature adult stage , metal the decay phase or old self, and water the death/ rebirth.  We go through many of these cycles within our life. Always evolving and growing into a new self. If we are remaining stagnant and not progressing in life then this is when we have imbalance within the elements which will show up physically in some way.  In our lives we will be mostly in one phase at a time however some days when we wake up we might feel we need more fire energy (creativity and motivation) or another day you may need some nurturing so you would choose the earth element oil which is nurturing and grounding. 

3.  How can we use Kinesiology for overall health and wellbeing.


Short answer:


Kinesiology is great to address many different aspects in your life from physical health to achieving specific goals. The body via the muscles will indicate where there is imbalance and also show what correction is needed to bring the body back into balance. This is where it is powerful as it takes the guesswork out. What I also love about Kinesiology is that we are accessing the subconscious mind, our conscious mind runs our life 5% and our subconscious 95%. So to make change, to achieve our goals for optimum health we have to access the subconscious and bring it into alignment with the conscious mind. This is when the magic happens

Kinesiology is great to address many different aspects in your life from physical health to achieving specific goals. The body via the muscles will indicate where there is imbalance and also show what correction is needed to bring the body back into balance. This is where it is powerful as it takes the guesswork out. Our body's innate intelligence knows what we need to be in an optimum state. During a session the practitioner may rub a specific acupressure point, activate a meridian or look at a specific diet imbalance. We are also testing an emotion behind the imbalance so the person is talking about an emotion as the practitioner is doing the correction.  With Kinesiology we are working with the triangle of health so we look at all sides not just one. In this way it is very holistic as it looks at the person as a whole, mental/emotional, physical and nutritional. Each one affects the other so we must have balance between them all.


What I also love about Kinesiology is that we are accessing the subconscious mind, our conscious mind runs our life 5% and our subconscious 95%. So to make change, to achieve our goals for optimum health we have to access the subconscious and bring it into alignment with the conscious mind. This is when the magic happens. For example I love helping people come into alignment with their purpose and to help them move from a job they dislike into something that inspires and lifts them up. What can happen is that that person may have set goals and put things into action however they were not really getting any positive results. With Kinesiology we test the body and find a self sabotage programme.

Example" I am not worthy of success"  "I am a failure" "I am not worthy" Then we test the age where this belief comes from and we reset the subconscious mind into a positive statement. This is when liberation happens as that person is free from their old stores and now can have success in many forms because the subconscious and conscious are in alignment. It is the same for many other things in a person's life. I work with health, relationships, anxiety sleeping and much more.
