Optimum Health Balance (OHB) Kinesiology
Touch for Health (TFH) Kinesiology
Flower Essence therapy combined with Kinesiology
OHB Kinesiology belongs to the field of energy Kinesiology. As this system works on an energetic level it works equally well over a short distance, as during an in-person treatment, or a long distance, as in a distance treatment between Gauldry and Glasgow. Just as for your mobile phone, the actual distance seems to not to matter as long as there is a good connection!
TFH Kinesiology can also work over a distance and indeed online, when some client participation can also be included. We often use goal balancing in TFH to address specific issues which are troubling or challenging the client.
Both Kinesiology systems identify and defuse stress, thus bringing a person into a balanced, harmonious state of being. Stress can take many forms and has a wide range of effects according to a person's tendencies or weaknesses. It can be a structural stress causing physical pain or discomfort, or the stress can be emotional, mental or spiritual in nature. Or it can be a stress around something we are struggling to achieve resulting in our feeling stuck , helpless and frustrated. Or sometimes life just feels too much, too overwhelming.
Balance or harmony requires all aspects of our being to be connected/ "talking to each other" and there are numerous pathways which enable this. The functioning of our bodies is a miracle we take totally for granted! Healthy functioning requires constant movement and communication throughout our body/being. When this communication is interrupted and not restored, the body/ being has to compensate. If compensations go on for too long because the original problem has not been addressed, more compensations become necessary. Using Kinesiology our focus is to unravel the compensations and dig down to the root problem and identify how to resolve that original stress.
Reflexology is very a relaxing and rejuvenating therapy. It works areas of the feet (reflexes), which relate to the organs and systems of the body, to identify blockages.It also works with the meridians and acupressure points in the feet and ankle area thus stimulating or sedating the energy circulation as needed. Using specific techniques the practitioner works to stimulate or sedate the reflex areas as appropriate and to encourage relaxation. It is when the mind chatter stills and the person relaxes that healing can take place. Reflexology is helpful in all conditions resulting from an over or under function.
Flower Essence Therapy and Natural Nutrition both combine well with Kinesiology. Often they are integrated into the balancing treatment but equally often they test as longer term support (homework) for the work done in the balance.
All progress involves change and this is what most of us struggle with. Flower Essences can be a real support in helping us deal with change, particularly change not of our choosing! They relieve emotional" stuckness" and help us to perceive things in a different light. Through seeing a situation differently, we are able to deal with it differently and move forward.
Natural Nutrition can be a stand alone treatment. It views nutrition from a naturopathic perspective and encourages us to listen to our bodies and how our body is responding to what we are feeding it.
CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
From the 1st of September clients can attend my clinic in person again.
In accordance with the present regulations and guidance from my professional organisation, I have drawn up a risk assessment, which is available to read on the Treatment sessions page.
In accordance with current guidance I will send all clients a Covid consent form prior to their appointment to ensure that there is no reason why they should not attend their appointment.
There are, as everyone will know certain infection prevention measures that we have to put in place for in person sessions. All information regarding this can be found in the risk assessment on the Treatments page.
I believe there is an important balance to be struck between asking the right questions but not making it feel like an interrogation. Also there is a need to combine safe infection control with a relaxing treatment environment. A tricky balancing act - but defusing stress and restoring balance is exactly what Kinesiology is all about !!
On a more serious note, a lot of people have had a really stressful and in some cases a devastating, time during these past months and are greatly in need of some support. Kinesiology and Reflexology can really help to relieve stress, worry and depression. Kinesiology balancing can help us to cope and adapt and feel more confident about managing the major changes COVID has brought, particularly when combined with flower essence therapy.
In times of great stress and worry, it is particularly important that the nutrition we are feeding our body is supporting our energy and well being and not undermining it. Natural nutrition combined with kinesiology looks at many aspects of nutrition - food quality, timing/ frequency of meals, combination of ingredients, intolerances etc. It is also important to remember that the functioning of our digestive system also impacts how much benefit we get from the food we eat.
As a Kinesiologist I am passionate about helping people to learn how they themselves can support their health and well being and I will soon start running workshops and courses again to enable this.
DISTANCE BALANCE TREATMENTS
"I have had a few sessions with Lois now. The last was a distant session and I'm in no doubt that it was just as powerful as in person."
I have been carrying out distance balance and online balance treatments throughout Lockdown and during this ongoing time of transition.
I will continue to offer this option for people unable to attend in person, perhaps because they are ill or have to self isolate.
Distance or online treatments are also a good option for those who are anxious about attending in person under the present circumstances. These sessions are just as effective as person to person sessions and can be very convenient for busy people and do not involve travel time.
I first learned Optimum Health Balance (OHB) Kinesiology and Touch for Health (TFH) Kinesiology in 1990 -1992 during our son's illness. I used Kinesiology on an almost daily basis for over three years, often as a distance treatment, which gave me plenty of opportunity to observe its effectiveness!
When I had my practice in Dundee, I did weekly sessions with a Mental Health Charity for six years gaining useful experience and insights.
I now practice from my home clinic in Gauldry, situated about 3 miles from Newport on Tay. Gauldry is easily accessible from Tayside and North East Fife and parking is available on site.
