Kinesiology practitioners assess the body for physiological, psychological and mechanical muscle pattern imbalances that may potentially be affecting your overall health and wellbeing. So what are some of the benefits of Kinesiology and how may these affect your life?

Benefits Of Kinesiology

  • Kinesiology provides a full assessment of the body and demonstrates specific areas that are undergoing stresses
  • Unlike other modalities, Kinesiology encompasses emotional, physical and mental factors
  • Brings the body back into balance to promote innate healing and wellbeing
  • Improves body immunity to fight off illness
  • No session is the same as balancing is unique to the individuals stresses
  • Brings awareness to the client as to what is actually causing stress and therefore less optimal health
  • Strengthens all the muscles that support the skeletal system. For example – Chiropractic realigns the spine and Kinesiology allows the body to accurately “turn” these muscles on to provide support
  • Empowers the client to be aware and in charge of their own health and vitality
  • Balances neurotransmitters such as Serotonin, GABA, melatonin to provide clarity and calmness, keeping you emotionally and mentally balanced
  • Eases anxiety and stress by focusing on adrenal exhaustion
  • Provides hormonal balancing to the client
  • Integrates the right and left brain which is crucial for learning, mental clarity and emotional stability
  • Kinesiology is non-invasive and the client is fully clothed during a balance treatment

Learn More About Your Melbourne Kinesiologist

relaxThroughout my career I have always felt a connection to promoting health, wellbeing and a good quality of life. Beginning my journey in the healthcare industry in 1984 I trained as a radiographer, working in hospitals across New Zealand, Australia and later the UK where I began became a cardiac device specialist, collaborating with world class cardiologists for 15 years. During my time in the allopathic healthcare industry I was acutely aware of the medical model’s limitations of providing holistic health by focusing solely on the mechanics of the body.

As a young working mother in the healthcare industry I first encountered kinesiology as one of my children started displaying coping issues that developed into challenging behaviour. After a few weeks of practicing some simple brain integration techniques I could not believe the transformation in my child. The effectiveness of such simple techniques amazed me and I decided to learn more and decided to study kinesiology.

Now with over seven years’ experience working as a kinesiologist in Melbourne I truly feel that I am living my life’s passion by providing a unique modality that addresses all levels of health. In today’s fast-paced society we are constantly bombarded with stress and find it hard to maintain equilibrium in our lives. My passion is to help my clients live healthy and fulfilled lives so they can reach their goals and dreams, being empowered to take responsibility for their wellbeing and health.

I specialise in finding the multiple stresses in the body, whether they be emotional, mental, environmental or physical and activate your body’s innate ability to heal itself, balancing these stresses in order to help you achieve your full potential.

Clinical Kinesiology Case Studies From Kinesiology Melbourne

Case Study 1

A delightful 8 year old appeared in Hawthorn clinic 3 years ago. She couldn’t stay still for a minute. Her mother brought her to see me as she was severely dyslexic and her behavior was particularly challenging. In her initial sessions we worked on Right/Left brain integration, giving her some fun exercises and assessing what imbalances she had that was causing her stress. Although she came back to me to help with her dyslexia I found the priority to work with first was her emotional lack of self-esteem.

She was made to feel ‘dumb’ at school and couldn’t hop and skip like the other kids. We did the balance and I sent her home with some Brain integration exercises and emotional stress release techniques that she could use any time through the day. She was seeing me monthly for about 6 months. The progress was amazing – by addressing the emotional aspect of her learning difficulties first, everything fell into place.

She is now a confident 11 year old who reads novels one after the other. The change was amazing. It is wonderful to see her so happy, confident, calm and relaxed. By using the techniques I gave her long ago she is able to feel empowered within her own wellbeing, keeping herself balanced.

Case Study 2

Another client, a 47 year old woman, came to my Hawthorn clinic with anxiety attacks, feelings of helplessness and lack of self-esteem. She came to me because her doctor wanted her to go on hormone replacement and antidepressants. She had visited many avenues for help and my door was her final attempt before going on medication

On her initial balance we found out what her triggers were that were making her stressed. In this initial session we addressed her adrenal exhaustion caused by an imbalance in the neurotransmitter serotonin which acts as the body’s ‘happy hormone’.

It became apparent that there was a lack of protein precursor that makes serotonin, essentially inhibiting the action of the hormone. I balanced her body around this and drew attention to the body’s stress reaction, emphasizing how this imbalance affected her ability to cope.

In order to balance the adrenal exhaustion, the client’s body indicated the need for a simple amino acid and Vitamin B supplementation. She left with a toolbox of simple emotional stress release techniques. Feeling more empowered, calm and relieved. I now see her monthly to help her stay on track. She is now calm, empowered and living a drug-free fulfilled life.
