I offer both nutritional therapy and kinesiology to clients, using an approach that gives the best chance to get to the root cause of your health problems and to bring balance back to the body.
What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional therapy has made great leaps forward during the past twenty years and uses the latest research-based evidence in nutrition and biochemistry. It is founded on the principle that the body will heal itself if the conditions are right and aims to restore health and vitality through the application of a tailor-made dietary and lifestyle changes and supplements where appropriate. I work from a functional medicine standpoint, treating every client as an individual, giving you time to talk and explain your health problems and ultimately taking a holistic view of your health and wellbeing by looking for the root cause of any ill health rather than just at individual symptoms.
What is kinesiology?
The term ‘Kinesiology’ means ‘the study of movement’ and was originally used to describe a form of conventional medicine regarding muscles and joints. Over the past 40 years, practitioners, most notably George Goodheart, developed Kinesiology further and it is now an effective natural healing therapy that combines muscle testing with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess health, energy, nutritional imbalances and the impact of emotions on health.
A basic principle of Kinesiology is that an energy imbalance in any part of the body affects the function of the body as a whole. Correcting the imbalance brings about a general improvement in total body energy, which can manifest as improved physical and mental performance.
The muscle testing is simple, painless, gentle and you keep your clothes on! It is practiced worldwide by doctors, dentists, chiropractors, nutritional therapists, and other health professionals.
Why do you offer nutrition and kinesiology together?
I have found that nutritional therapy and kinesiology complement each other very well. Offering both enables me to:
- pinpoint with better accuracy the underlying causes of ill health
- offer practical nutritional guidance as well as a hands-on and relaxing therapy
- find out if there are any organs or systems that needs support
I would like to point out that although I offer both nutritional therapy and kinesiology, kinesiology is an entirely separate discipline to nutritional therapy, and is covered by a different professional body, The Association of Systematic Kinesiology (ASK), of which I am a member.
