What does the word "Kinesiology" mean?, and who created it?


The Swedish therapist, medical gymnast and kinesiologist Carl August Georgii, Professor at the Royal Gymnastic Central Institute GCI in Stockholm, was the one who created and coined the new international word Kinesiology in 1854.

Most people today who use the word Kinesiology lack knowledge about its history and the original meaning of the word.

The term Kinesiology is a literal translation to Greek-English from the original Swedish word Rörelselära, meaning "Movement-Study / Movement-Knowledge", which was the foundation of the Medical Gymnastics, the original Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy, developed during 100 years in Sweden (starting 1813).

 Swedish Professor Carl August Georgii at the Royal Gymnastic Central Institute GCI, 1880
Swedish Professor Carl August Georgii (1808-1881) at the Royal Gymnastic Central Institute GCI, created the new international word "Kinesiology" in 1854. The Royal Gymnastic Central Institute, GCI was founded 1813 in Stockholm, Sweden by Pehr Henrik Ling.
G.C.I. was the very first Physiotherapy School in the world, training hundreds of medical gymnasts who spread the Swedish physical therapy to all continents around of the world.
In 1887 Sweden was the first country in the world to give a national state licence to physiotherapists/physical therapists.


The new medical therapy created in Sweden was called "Rörelselära", and later (1854) translated to the invented international word "Kinesiology", consisted of nearly 2,000 physical movements and 50 different types of massage therapy techniques.
They were all used to affect various dysfunctions and even illnesses, not only in the movement apparatus, but also into the internal physiology of man.

Thus, the original classical and Traditional Kinesiology was not only a system of rehabilitation for the body, but also a new therapy for relieving and curing diseases, by affecting the autonomic nervous system, organs and glands in the body.
Today, this concept is believed and used by most practitioners of Applied Kinesiology (AK).


 Nils Posse, a medical gymnast from Sweden, wrote the very first book ever with the word 'Kinesiology' in the book's title: 'The Special Kinesiology Of Educational Gymnastics', Boston 1894.
