Specialised Kinesiology uses muscle monitoring as a primary feedback mechanism. It is a process of finding out from the person using the technique of muscle monitoring where they are adapting appropriately and where not. Through the application of various protocols and techniques this uncovers and helps release and /or reframes unresolved issues, hurts, pain and resentments.  These are often physically stored in the body and can lead to stress, tension, fatigue, lowered immune functioning & even weight issues.

Specialised Kinesiology may help with; General Fatigue, Allergies, Learning difficulties, Insomnia, Low self Esteem, Digestive disorders, Skin Problems, Stress & Anxiety, Sinusitis, Past Trauma, Sports Injuries, Fears and Phobias, Chronic Pain, Goal Setting,  Weight Issues.

 

It is important to understand that Kinesiologist’s do not diagnose or treat specific illness because they do not work according to the “medical model” of disease. Rather, they work within an entirely different paradigm, that of balancing the body’s energy systems so the innate wisdom of the body can heal itself. Kinesiology is complementary to orthodox medicine, and works with, not against it.

 

Specialised Kinesiology is suitable for babies, toddlers, teenagers and adults!

 

Specialised Kinesiology is non-intrusive, completely natural and can be used in conjunction with other modalities.

What is Kinesiology?

Specialised Kinesiology uses muscle monitoring as a primary feedback mechanism to establish how a person is functioning. It is a process of finding out from the person using the technique of muscle monitoring where they are adapting appropriately and where not. This uncovers, and through the application of various protocols and techniques helps to release and/or reframe unresolved issues, hurts, pains and resentments that are physically stored in the body and can lead to stress, tension, fatigue and even lowered immune functioning. Specialised Kinesiology is non-intrusive, completely natural and can be used in conjunction with other modalities.

What do I expect at a Kinesiology session?

You will complete a form and we will chat about your issue or focus. You will then be asked remove your shoes and lie on the therapy bed. Your arm will be used to check responses (sometimes to verbal questioning). Depending on the priority issue a number of procedures may be carried out. A session lasts approximately 1 hour.

How many sessions do I need?

This is dependent on the person and the condition however; four sessions are suggested to experience the full benefits. Follow up visits may be in one, two or three weeks. Each person and their issues are unique. Many people choose to have a Kinesiology session every 4 to 6 weeks for stress management or as a preventative measure.

Is Specialised Kinesiology suitable for children?

Many researchers in Kinesiology have noted great improvements in ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, reading, writing and spelling with children of all ages. Education as well as Nutrition is very important, so all efforts to clear blockages to learning should be explored by parents and teachers. If a child is not performing at their optimal level at school Kinesiology may be just what you are looking for. Specialised Kinesiology is suitable for babies, toddlers, teenagers and adults!

What can I expect after a Kinesiology session?

After a Kinesiology session you may be very relaxed, or full of energy. You may experience emotional ups and downs. The body may begin to eliminate toxins and you may experience the following physical symptoms: skin problems, nausea, headache, sleepiness, fatigue, constipation, diarrhoea, head or chest cold, increased urination or any other way the body uses to loosen and eliminate including crying. These are the body’s way of re-adjusting.  During this time you should increase your intake of water and rest when your body needs it.

Kinesiology Background?

Dr. Goodheart D.C. is accredited as being the Father of Kinesiology when in 1964, he acknowledged that basic chiropractic adjustments often were not providing complete relief for physical disabilities and discovered that the problem seemed to be related to muscle spasms that were not being released. A study of the original methods of testing muscles described by Kendall and Kendall (ref: Kendall 1949) led to the primary diagnostic tool of muscle testing which they termed Applied Kinesiology. Their discovery later included work from pioneers like Dr. Frank Chapman, Dr. Terence Bennett, Dr. John Thie, Gordon Stokes and Dr. Paul Dennison, and thus today, Kinesiology has evolved into something far greater that just a health care system… it is a tool for Truth in the world.

It is important to understand that Kinesiologists do not diagnose or treat specific illness because they do not work according to the “medical model” of disease. Rather, they work within an entirely different paradigm, that of balancing the body’s energy systems so the innate wisdom of the body can heal itself. Kinesiology is complementary to orthodox medicine, and works with, not againstit.

Remember raw food does not have to be cold food! Food that has not been heated above 47 degrees is still considered raw. You can finger test – as long as you can put your finger in the pot without scorching it you’re good to go.

Have you tried all the medications, vitamins and magic potions and still not had ANY success in getting to the root of your ailments, allergies or weight issues?

DSCN3023

Did you know that the slightest changes in your diet and lifestyle could make the biggest positive differences in your health and wellbeing?

Maybe it’s time to take a different approach to your health and lifestyle and get your body back in balance the NATURAL WAY?

When it comes to nutrition I believe in a healthy natural, practical and sustainable approach. Fad “diets” and being obsessed with the bathroom scale is not the answer to a healthy body as I don’t believe they are sustainable or practical. The focus should be on balanced health and not weight.

Our lives are so fast and stressed and we seem to have adopted the same principles with our Modern Diet. The modern diet is all about convenient and fast foods, seriously lacking nutritional value. These days, supporting our bodies with good nutrition is more important than ever before! When we feed our bodies with empty calories we end up overweight with sick and tired bodies. Can you really say that you wake up every morning clear headed with vibrant energy and a positive outlook?

I would love to assist you on your journey to vibrant health!

Through Nutritional Consultations, I may be able to assist with:

Allergies, sinusitis, digestive ailments, hormonal issues, stress and anxiety, learning disorders, ADHD,   Burn-out,  Detoxification, Depression, and issues around weight and a range of other  conditions.

So what is a Nutritional consultation all about??

A nutritional consultation is an investigative process, which takes into consideration your diet and lifestyle to help get to the root of imbalance and help you obtain optimum health and vitality through improved eating habits, detoxification, correct supplementation and lifestyle improvements.

 

Why Detox?

I feel detoxification is a very important part of ones journey to vibrant health. Our bodies ARE capable of cleansing, healing and detoxifying themselves however, when we are overloading our bodies, not only from what we are putting into them like; refined carbohydrates, sugar,  preservatives & chemicals, caffeine, alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs, and animal proteins with antibiotics & hormones. But also from external factors such as pollution, stress, not enough rest/sleep, not enough/too much exercise. This causes our bodies to battle and not function the way they should, because all the energy is focused on dealing with these toxins and finding way to get them out of the body. You can assist your body to eliminate toxins by applying certain protocols, supplements, resting your body and reducing or cutting out these stress causing substances. This would help your body function in a much better way and would leave you feeling full of energy and vitality to live your best life.

What to expect from a consultation?

Prior to the initial consultation it will be requested of the client to complete an extensive health questionnaire which needs to sent through to me at least a day before the first consultation. It is also important in the questionnaire that you supply me with full details of your nutritional supplements and / or any current medication.  The first consultation lasts approximately 1 ½ hours. During the consultation we will discuss your goals, as well as recommendation for change. An individualised program is then created to address areas of concern. The program will include dietary changes, education on label reading, supplementation, as well as lifestyle management strategies and whole foods preparation.

A follow – up consultation is encouraged usually 2-3 weeks after the initial consultation. In the meantime, back up and support is provided through telephone or email contact. The follow- up consultation lasts approximately 1 hour.
