Put simply, kinesiology is a non-invasive method using muscle feedback and body awareness, that can help you to reduce stress,, improve performance at school, work and home, in sports, in relationships, and promote health and well-being.
I discovered Kinesiology when my first child was about 2.
After a very traumatic and stressful time when he was a baby, and then suffering from severe sleep deprevation for months and months on end, I was having trouble deciding if the second child I had dreamed of having would be possible for me. I felt that my experience has really scarred me and that if I was to have another baby with such chronic sleep problems that I would not be able to cope. After much time and discussion we decided to try and have a second child.
I got pregnant quite quickly but when I was a couple of months pregnant, I started to have massive anxiety and panic about this impending child. I was so worried that it would be the same as the first time and I had no control over my emotions. I was angry, stressed and really just not coping with even basic things. I was very very worried, about myself and also about my unborn child.
I met a guy through the job that I was doing at the time and he was a Kinesiologist. I ended up confiding in him that I was not in a good place emotionally and that I really wanted to get some help before the baby came along.
He got me to come along to his clinic and to my absolute amazement and also delight. I started feeling much better after a few sessions. The techniques he used were gentle and non invasive and the sessions were actually quite enjoyable.
I was converted, and I had for a known for a while, that I wanted to change the direction of my career. This was the answer for me. I remember saying to him once. “I want to be able to do this for people ! !”
I felt so strong and happy and EXCITED about my pregnancy. I had my baby and things were so different, he slept, he was not sick and I was a relaxed and happy Mum to both of my beautiful children.
When my son was a few months old I started my study to become a Kinesiologist. It was part time so it worked really well for me. I felt like I was finally doing what I was meant to be doing and I thrived on the course and the knowledge it gave me. My kinesiologist, then offered to mentor me and so I have been learning some great techniques from him over the last 18 months or so.
I love what I do, I love being able to help people reach their potential and help people manage stress and anxiety in a natural and gentle way.
Kinesiology is empowering.
