Holistic Kinesiology


Holistic kinesiology aims to provide understanding and solutions to the causes of your issue. The reason for your issue, however, always lies within you. For example, you may suffer from a sore and stiff neck and feel anxious and stressed. Is the stress due to the sore neck or is the sore neck due to stress? It can be either. In one case, muscle feedback may prompt the holistic kinesiologist to work to defuse the stress causing the sore neck. In another case the practitioner may work on the sore muscles that are causing you stress. The holistic kinesiologist would look for factors that are causing the muscles of the neck not to function well.

Holistic kinesiology does not diagnose or treat symptoms or conditions; rather it merely addresses relative underlying stress patterns associated with imbalances in the system. Once the stress has been corrected the indicator muscles will respond accordingly, confirming a positive change. This change in muscle response anchors the changes into the body, giving it conscious positive feedback. This also gives the body more information and better strategies if the same situation occurs again.

Kinesiology is non-invasive and uses muscle monitoring as a biofeedback system to identify those factors that are blocking your body’s natural healing processes. We work together to create a complimentary treatment plan for your entire wellbeing As it is holistic multiple factors are taken into account; including physical, biochemistry, emotional, breathwork, sound healing, aromatherapy, intuitive energy work, yoga therapy, meditation, joint stabilizations, functional movement and spiritual.

Your body really is a mirror of your inner thoughts and beliefs. The important thing is to remember to listen to it; your symptoms are telling you something. We get so busy working, doing and so forth that we don’t actually sit down and truly listen to what it is our bodies are trying to tell us. This is what makes Kinesiology wonderful as it looks beyond symptoms to find causes and it is when we clear causes of stress that true healing occurs.

Kinesiology does not diagnose or treat symptoms, rather it addresses the underlying stress patterns associated with imbalances in your body.

This type of therapeutics is suited for the patient who wants to take an active part in their healing journey, who is ready to create more alignment in their life and heart.

I’m not flexible, I can’t do “yoga” can I still work with you?
Yes, the physical practice of Yoga is not the focus of the session, the focus is recalibrating your nervous system (which is the master controller of you) which is achieved through a variety of modalities.

Gradually with time mobility will become restored and the body shapes (postures) that are created in your individual session are completely catered to your needs. We use props (blocks, blankets, bolsters) as required to allow you to feel supported as we gradually build strength and mobility.

I’ve been told I need Yoga for my mental health and stress levels but I’m not ready for a class setting. Do you offer an alternative?
Wonderful, working one to one is a beautiful place to start. You will gain tangible tools to feel confident to explore a studio setting should you choose to.

Can pregnant women do this work?
Absolutely, it is essential during pregnancy to keep the body (especially the pelvic bowl) and the mind in alignment as you prepare for the most beautiful transition period. I am certified to work with pre and post natal students in private and group settings for therapeutics and yoga.
