What actually happens in a consultation

I use a range of natural therapies, mainly kinesiology (not to be confused with applied kinesiology used by chiropractors) a unique, simple method that can help alleviate and possibly remove persistent pain, within a reasonable timeframe.


When people come to me for treatment, my expectations are for them to have a resumption of normal lifestyle, possibly without any pain, within three months. 


The reason for the success I have of reducing or even eliminating persistent pain, is that the beginning of the persistent pain may be from emotional experiences that have occurred during our lives as the definition of ‘emotion’ is a reaction to something happening. After physical symptoms are resolved, people have problems accepting explanations such as there is little or no residual physical damage or understanding your explanations of ‘central sensitivity’ and the recognition of the need for biopsychosocial treatments.


Many treatments, both allopathic and complementary provide varying levels of pain relief, however for some people these treatments are mainly treating compensations not the real cause of the pain, necessitating more or continual treatment or stronger medication.


The above may seem rather ‘pie in the sky’ and I will be perhaps challenging some of your ideas, or hopefully I have you interested enough to listen to the theory behind my success with my holistic treatment.


The human body has an innate knowledge of healing. Whether we consider the body systems, the ability to promote homeostasis, cell repair and many other functions, these all are interconnected to be a whole person. Therefore I would suggest that if persistent pain is persistent, regardless of treatments, a person’s body will know why this is so?


Muscle checking, used by kinesiologists and chiropractors that use applied kinesiology, are consistently used to decide what treatment is required and the specific emotions involved.


Treatment is always client-centred, gentle, calming with little or no pain, carried out with a client lying, fully clothed on a massage table.


One important aspect of my treatment that is easier to understand, the concept of ‘Body Balance’ where the muscles of the body are working in harmony for fluid movement. A full movement and posture record is done on the initial consultation. The photographs and video are insightful for both my client and myself. This helps give clients the understanding of compensations affecting their pain


I am also a qualified naturopath, if needed able to prescribe relevant nutritionals together with food and lifestyle advice. As a trained yoga teacher clients may use meditative breathing techniques, during consultations and in their own time, as I believe clients need to be part of their healing.
