What is Kinesiology?

‘Touch for Health’ Kinesiology is a tool for working with the connection between the mind and body, using the electromagnetic energy system known as ‘meridians’. We use a series of muscle tests which provide biofeedback about your wellbeing and then use techniques to correct imbalances and may also give you some recommendations to continue the strengthening of your body/mind.

“Muscles, we now know are where the body-mind interaction takes place. At some stage you may have had ‘nervous diarrhoea’, which is simply the muscles expressing our emotion. The tension you feel in your neck when things are ‘weighing you down’ can stay long after the problem has been dealt with. Remembering this situation or a similar one reactivates your ‘old neck trouble’. The body becomes your VDU, or visual display of your bio-computer.” – John Thie

These examples are to give you an idea as to how touch reflexes can help the body let go of postural problems and pains. We can use spinal reflexes, neurolymphatic massage points and neurovascular holding points as well as foods for balancing.

I still have a lot more study to do on Kinesiology but have completed the foundation stage which is enough to share with you and be of some assistance to your health.

Nurturing the Self

We women are an interesting species. We take on so many roles in our life, which make life interesting but also create stress and discontent. Unfortunately, we cannot be everywhere, looking after everyone and acting cool calm and collected and looking fantastic all at the same time! Being superwoman is a myth. You will burn yourself out, or miss really living or at worst make yourself ill.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy

Hot Stone Massage is one of the most divine experiences in the massage and spa industry. Its popularity is most likely due to the reports of an exceptional feeling of luxury, being pampered with the comforting warmth of the stones at the same time as receiving quality therapeutic massage. It is a special massage that takes one to a deeper level of relaxation and healing.

What to expect with your first therapeutic massage

Occasionally someone will receive a gift voucher or decide to have a massage for the first time, and will feel a little nervous if they have had no prior experience. (The fear of the unknown). If this could apply to you, rest assured it will be a pleasant, comfortable experience and you will soon wonder what you ever worried about, as long as you follow the few quick tips below.

Aromatherapy Oils

What is aromatherapy and how does it work?

Aromatherapy is the use of highly concentrated plant extracts called essential oils to promote the well-being of the body, spirit and mind. The aroma of an essential oil travels up the nasal cavity where the olfactory sensors are located. These sensors send massages to the brain via the limbic system which controls our emotions.
