From Dietitian to Kinesiologist

 

Working in healthcare for the past 17 years has seen a gradual but significant shift in my approach to health. From a clinical Dietitian in NZ and the UK, to a private practice Nutritionist in Australia and now as a Kinesiologist here in beautiful Adelaide, I can finally say I love my work.

 

What prompted the shift from clinical Dietetics to Kinesiology?

"There is something else going on here" was a common thought throughout my work as a Dietitian and even as a private practice Nutritionist. Addressing chemical imbalances with nutrition was not enough for some clients to achieve the lasting results they were after.

There needed to be a way of gaining more insight and information about what was causing imbalances for clients.  There was also a need for more tools and techniques, in addition to nutritional strategies, to help clients clear these imbalances.

After researching many healthcare modalities, Kinesiology answered both needs.  Kinesiology opens up a much wider perspective to health as it uses the meridian system from Chinese Medicine. 

 

The meridians help us see the links between all the elements of the body - the chemical status, the musculoskeletal structure, the emotional state and the neurological integration. 

It is an absolute joy to combine Kinesiology with Nutrition to help clients with a wide range of health issues including digestive problems, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, poor immune function, behavioural issues, learning difficulties, anxiety, pain and stress management.

On a personal note, the amount I have learnt about my own body and health through using Kinesiology is incredible.  I keep learning more all the time as the body peels back layers of imbalances.  I am so grateful that I found Kinesiology and have such a wonderful teacher and mentor to guide me.

If you would like to discover what is creating health imbalances for you or your children, and what you need to start changing them, I would love to help.

From gymnast to Pilates instructor

 

My interest in the workings of the human body started as a young gymnast and dancer and were further developed while completing a sports science degree.  While studying and working as a group fitness and gym instructor it became obvious that many injuries were a result of either muscle imbalances or poor exercise technique.

While working in the UK I found Pilates and discovered (to my relief!) that finally there was a intelligent form of exercise designed to work with the entire body! Pilates actually improves muscle balance, strength and range of movement creating stability and mobility.   Read more about Pilates...
