The Chakras are part of our energy body and are situated from the top of our heads to the bottom of our torso. There are 7 main chakras, however, there are also minor chakras at every joint. These internal and external energies are interconnected and support each other to maintain balance within our physical body. If something is out of balance in the … [Read more...] about Balance your Chakras for Improved Wellbeing
As I was sitting in 26 degrees out in the middle of the East Sussex countryside and experiencing a few nose/throat tickles and sneezes I was reminded of the importance of hydrated mucus membranes to health (in class I call mucus membrane, wet tissue). I immediately got up and drank a pint of water, took an omega 3 oil and a 30ml shot of Zambroza (Antioxidant drink full of beta carotene which is the precursor to Vitamin A and other carotenoids too) and the mild symptoms I had immediately … [Read more...] about The Importance of Hydrated Mucus Membranes to Health

A guest post re the dangers of toxic positivity written by Antonia Beamish (edited by TASK) Positivity can be passive, disingenuous and dangerous. Not words you expect to hear from a complementary therapist who works with clients on their emotional wellbeing? Well, this isn’t the whole story. Positivity has its place, but in the last year or so I’ve seen it slide into a toxic place that has at times sugarcoated reality, disengaged us from our truth and invalidated our feelings thus leading to … [Read more...] about The Dangers of Toxic Positivity

We need warm food, root veggies, stews and soups to give our bodies the right … [Read more...] about 7 tips to stay healthy this winter
A guest blog post about Change and Kinesiology written by Marzia Caldirola (Edited by TASK). Change had always been a very hard for me.

Unsatisfied with my job at the time, I decided … [Read more...] about Kinesiology is Gentle, Supportive, Positive Change
I have noticed over the years of running my Kinesiology practice that more people than before are suffering from food sensitivities.
