Kinesiology is a gentle approach, which involves touch, massage and acupressure. There are no needles involved.  If you arrive with pain I will work to ease this.

I ask you to stay involved, and stay conscious. You need to be in control of your health and provide feedback on emotions raised. Plus muscle testing can involve testing 14 or 28 muscles so there’s a lot of moving around.

Muscle testing is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages.

This will depend on the reason you are coming to see me. Commonly each case will take 3-5 sessions.  My aim is to get you better so you don’t need to come back.

Please wear comfortable modest clothing that you can move in freely.

Yes, it’s important not to consume any alcohol, or wear any perfumes.  Deodorant is ok to wear.  And if you are taking any supplements, or medications please bring these with you.

Every body is different, and people’s bodies responds differently.  Mostly clients leave feeling clearer, taller, grounded and balanced.  Sometimes they’ll feel more energised and have a spring in your step; other times (just like when you detox) clients may feel worse before they get better. 

For some the effects are instant, but for me for example it can take 30 minutes, to 12 hrs to start feeling the benefits.

A big part of this is your original goal for the session.  If for example you are balanced to cope with anxiety toward a presentation you have to do in a months time, you will see the benefits when you have time to reflect on how well you did after the presentation compared to what you had experienced in the past.

Out of respect for other clients, if you arrive late, your appointment will run for the remainder of your allocated time, and the original appointment fee will be charged.

I value your commitment to make change in your life. To honour your process, and those of all my clients, and to ensure I am able to run a sustainable practice, I require at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. A cancellation fee of $50 is payable for cancellations made with less than 24 hours notice.
