An initial free 30 minute appointment is available for clients new to this therapy, so they can get an idea of what is involved and see whether they want to proceed with a full treatment.
Clients are fully clothed throughout Kinesiology treatments/ balances. As Kinesiology treatments are dictated by the client's body responses it is difficult to set a definite timescale for treatments but they usually last 11/2 to 2 hours.
Clients lie on a therapy couch throughout the treatment. Some initial pre-checks are carried out to make sure muscle responses are reliable. The balancing process is guided by muscle monitoring an indicator muscle to gather information about the client's issue(s), then checking that we have all the information needed before proceeding to check which treatment the body chooses. After treatment is completed, the practitioner checks that enough treatment has been carried out and the identified imbalances have been corrected - treatments are mainly energy treatments as this system is designed to work with frequency. Finally we check to find out whether another treatment is required and whether there is anything the client needs to do at home to support the work done in the balance.
This is a very relaxing treatment and the testing pressure is very gentle and so can be used safely with the elderly, frail or very young. Distance treatments are also possible, once a connection with the client has been established.
TFH Kinesiology treatments differ in a number of respects. Treatments involve testing a range of muscles to ascertain which meridians are affected, this can be done with the client either standing or lying down. Treatments can be a general balance to raise well being and energy levels or a specific goal can be set with the client before commencing the balance, to align their energy with something they want to achieve or change. This is a more physical balance and the client will feel the difference in their muscle responses as the balance progresses. Any emotion linked to a goal that has been set will be identified and treated as part of the balance. We filter life through our emotions and they decide how we respond to situations/ people etc so it is important to identify any stuck emotions which are keeping a person stuck. Corrections procedures are simple and non invasive - light massage of specific points, tracing meridians, holding certain points - but extremely effective.
Keeping oneself balanced is good preventative healthcare .
Reflexology treatments are carried out with the client lying on a couch, although in the case of hand reflexology they may prefer to sit on a chair.
A foot reflexology treatment will involve the client removing their shoes and socks/ stockings.
As described above the practitioner uses specific hand movements to work the feet/ hands/ face in a certain sequence in order to identify and treat any congestion, deposits etc over the reflexes. The pressure is light and any sensitivity or discomfort experienced by the client is fleeting. The overall treatment is very relaxing and clients often fall asleep.
Further treatments may be advised if the issues have been going on for some time, as each treatment builds on the effects of the previous treatment. Usually three treatments is sufficient to gauge the effectiveness of the treatments.
For relaxation and general heath support one treatment every 3 months is usually sufficient. If a person is going through a particularly stressful period more frequent treatments may be beneficial for a while.
As mentioned above this treatment can either stand alone or be used in conjunction with Reflexology. It combines traditional naturopathic techniques with dietary and nutritional approaches.
An initial Natural Nutrition session involves taking a detailed case history. The case history actually starts the treatment process, as the client talks about aspects they had perhaps previously not attributed any importance to, or not been aware of. The health history of previous family generations is also recorded and considered.
The case history indicates the treatment “starting point” and as sessions proceed the client will gain increasing understanding of their “story” and how and why they developed their health issues. As they gain more insight they gradually take over responsibility for managing their own health.
Sessions usually last 1 hour except for the first case history session, which lasts 1 ½ hours.
Three initial sessions are advised after which the number and frequency of sessions is discussed with the client and decided according to how much support and guidance they feel they need.
The practitioner is very much in a facilitating role, supporting the client in taking over responsibility for their own well-being.
As described above I use flower essences in conjunction with the other treatments I offer, usually Kinesiology and sometimes Reflexology. I use muscle monitoring to identify the most appropriate essence for a client and how it should taken. Flower essences are in a dropper bottle for ease of administration.
The cost of all treatments is £35.00 per hour.
