Why are we obsessed with having more? I have seen emotional well-being take a dramatic nosedive over my career, particularly with young people. Life is faster than ever, pressured, overloaded, with constant noise and stimulation which can be overwhelming. Does it lead to inner happiness? The obsession with having more and more stuff NOW! Together with the 'all about me' attitude, which often starts from a very young age. Does not, in my opinion, lead to inner peace and 'real' happiness. … [Read more...] about The Importance Of Emotional Well-Being
. I have many people come to my Kinesiology clinic who want to alleviate skin problems such as; eczema, acne, dermatitis, rashes and urticaria and TASK students are always eager to learn how to help their family and clients who are suffering.

That's what I love about Kinesiology - there is no guesswork at … [Read more...] about Natural Ways To Alleviate Skin Problems
As we are about to enter a time when we give and receive presents to loved ones it made me think about what we give and receive energetically within Kinesiology.

Do you recognise how much you give? Thoughts - Thoughts are energy and we are 100% concentrating on our clients wants and needs. In a session (and often … [Read more...] about Giving and Receiving for Kinesiologists
How we can support ourselves during pregnancy Last week I was asked about Kinesiology in pregnancy and birth and what role it plays, which lead me to write this post. When I was expecting I felt like I was doing a very special job as what could be more important than growing another human being? People say it’s easy because women have been doing it since time began. Well, women have been doing it since the beginning of time, although having had 5 pregnancies and been lucky enough to have … [Read more...] about Pregnancy and Kinesiology
Clearing emotional issues for balanced health It has often come to my attention how many of us separate our heads, minds and emotions from our bodies. Even those who 'know' they are totally entwined can often forget and overlook this truth. When dealing with and clearing emotional issues, we need to remember that emotions can and do get trapped in the cells of our body. Within Kinesiology we work on the emotions that are relevant to the weak muscle, organ or system which is incredibly … [Read more...] about Kinesiology and the emotional body
After seeing my teenagers back off to school on Monday, it reminded me of another reason of how lucky I am to have had Kinesiology as my career for the last 30 years.

How do you get Kinesiology clients? One of the questions I get asked a lot is "how do you get Kinesiology clients"? This is a subject we talk about and teach on our … [Read more...] about Gaining Kinesiology Clients and Business
The worst case of psoriasis I have ever seen The day before I went on holiday, I saw an emergency new client at my clinic in Epsom, whom I had met just days before. She had the worst case of psoriasis that I have ever seen. Whilst chatting to both her and her Mum, I learnt that she was just about to start methotrexate treatment on the NHS. Methotrexate is a chemotherapy medication sometimes used to treat skin conditions. According to Netdoctor it works "by preventing the excessive … [Read more...] about Psoriasis is more than a skin problem
Enough already! Life in 2017 can put a heavy load on our nervous system. Just getting out of bed each morning without any extra stresses piled on top can feel like enough. Add onto that; heating, lighting, air conditioning, aviation fuel, car and industry pollution, noise, population overload, continual electro magnetic disturbances, wifi and other radiation pollutants. Plus continual endocrine disrupting chemicals in food, toiletries and cleaning products and wow we begin to get a … [Read more...] about Balancing the nervous system with Kinesiology
A friend of mine, recently asked if I could write a Kinesiology Health Tip on indigestion. She was suffering from a burning feeling in her stomach which, she said, felt like too much acid.

Kinesiology teacher talks about letting go I had a good clear out of my loft recently, I also had a rewire and spring cleaned my house. The difference in the energy within my home and myself is amazing . My home feels more spacious (even though the clearing was from the loft where we don't see the clutter). Plus, breathing feels more spacious, easier and fresher, even though I didn't know it felt stifled. Letting go of the things I no longer needed and that weren't working for me really cleared … [Read more...] about Letting go and bringing in change
I am feeling really excited about clearing out my loft this week, sorting through all the things I have put up there and forgotten about. Finding some old treasures maybe, but also clearing out the cobwebs and just chucking all the old unwanted stuff that I thought I needed to hang on to 5 years ago but I haven’t thought about or looked at since! I love Spring time It really sparks me off to clean and have a good clear out. I so enjoy taking numerous dustbin bags out of my house to the charity … [Read more...] about Spring Cleaning
Our bodies have an innate healing process that we can biochemically tap into with kinesiology using our scientific tool of muscle testing. Whatever area of your body needs to heal Kinesiology takes the guess work out of were to begin and also what 'tools' for the job YOUR body needs by testing your muscles. It may be lymphatic drainage, extra nutrition to take, or certain food intolerances to cut out. Your body may need some energy medicine in working with the electrical circuits/meridians of … [Read more...] about Our innate healing process
What do you think can cause many unpleasant symptoms from zero energy, weight gain, depression, skin disorders, irritable bowel and needing to walk with a stick although the doctors find nothing wrong? The answer is wheat. But WHY? It has been suggested that wheat is the most inflammatory grain for our bodies. It used to grow to over 6ft and contain less gluten, more wheat germ and a lovely amount of vitamin E (our daily bread). Sadly now, with modern farming … [Read more...] about Wheat – A debilitating food?
