Kinesiology

Kinesiologists use manual muscle testing as a tool in their work, which tests the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body’s overall state of structural balance. They also recognise that there are flows of energy within the body that relate not only to the muscles, but to every tissue and organ that make the body a living being. Ultimately Kinesiology relies upon the muscles and there feedback to measure how the nervous system controls its muscle functions and then channels them to the brain and body. In this way, it helps the body into a better position to heal itself or reach a specified goal by ‘balancing” its energies.

 

Tai Chi

Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. It’s a low-impact, slow-motion exercise. Without pause you will be guided through a series of motions that incorporates deep breath and focus.

 

Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine (or naturopathy) aims to improve health, prevent disease, and treat illness through the use of organic foods and exercise by incorporating a healthy, balanced lifestyle; and the use of treatments from other areas. Naturopaths can also prescribe herbal medicines, homeopathic dilutions, or nutritional to aid with what some foods cannot provide.

 

Nutritionist

Good nutrition means getting the right amount of nutrients from healthy foods in the right combinations. Having nutrition knowledge and making smart choices about the foods you eat can and will help you achieve optimum health over your lifetime, and be a key to avoiding obesity, illness, and many of today’s most prevalent chronic diseases. Nutrition is just one key to developing and maintaining good health. Good health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being — a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

 

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

 

Hypnotherapy

The term “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word hypnos, meaning “sleep.” Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image. A hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.

 

Yoga

Yoga is union of the body, breath and mind. The various poses of Yoga cultivate that experience of union, leading to greater integration of being, internal peacefulness and clarity of the mind. It is a system that is designed to cultivate health and happiness, and a greater sense of self-awareness and higher consciousness.

 

Chakra balancing and healing

Chakras run from the base of your hips/lower back to the top of your head. There are seven main Chakras. Each Chakra is ball of energy. When our Energy is not in balance one or more of our Chakras will have a blockage. During a Chakra balancing session, the practitioner will assesses the flow of energy and remove any blockages, helping your body, mind and spirit to flow better.

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is the ancient art of foot massage which originated in China and which was also known to the Ancient Egyptians. It is believed that energy runs through the body in channels known as meridians and that massage of the feet stimulates these energy channels, promoting healing and relaxation. Every part of the foot corresponds to an area of the body, and massage of the feet stimulates the corresponding part of the body so that receiving a reflexology massage is regarded as the equivalent of a full body massage.

 

Meditation

Meditation is a technique used for resting our busy minds all whilst maintaining a state of consciousness. It is a means for centering ourselves within our own consciousness. Free your mind from the millions of thoughts that run through it by learning the ancient art of meditation. We incorporate different techniques to help guide you on your own journey of self discovery.
