Kinesiology is a simple, gentle, and non-invasive muscle technique that is a powerful therapy for change.
Kinesiology is also referred to as Muscle Balancing and can be used to test individual muscles throughout your body to assess if they are functioning well or not. There are numerous techniques that can then be used to help these muscles. Muscle Balancing can be very effective for people with recurrent muscle pain, soreness and weakness, whether it be a result of an original accident, ongoing postural problems, or due sport / exercise demands, etc.
Kinesiology is a very effective method of identifying, accessing and releasing the effects that past trauma, accidents, and challenging circumstances have had on us as individuals – mentally, emotionally and physically. Kinesiology can be a wonderful therapy to help us heal and move forward in all aspects of our lives.
Kinesiology can also be used to assess your diet to ensure that your body is able to digest, absorb and assimilate the foods you are currently eating. It can also be used to develop or fine tune any supplements you are currently taking to ensure they are the right ones for you, and to establish the correct dosage range to suit your own individual needs. Nutritional Kinesiology can help to ensure that any change that is recommended in your diet, supplement or lifestyle regime will have the maximum benefit on your health and wellbeing.

The Feldenkrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method teaches movement, posture and breathing in order to improve a client’s self-awareness, decrease their pain or limitations in movement and promote optimal well-being.
During a Feldenkrais Method session, certain ‘holding patterns’ that cause pain or dysfunction will be identified, and the client will then learn new ways of moving and consequently of living. These holding may be caused by physical injury or by emotional or psychological issues.
The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle movement , specific touch, and directed attention in order to access the nervous system’s own innate processes to change and refine functioning. This allows increased ease and range of motion, improved flexibility, coordination, posture and a re-discovery of efficient, fluid movement.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine can be used in addition to acupuncture or as a stand-alone therapy. It is one of the longest-standing medical traditions in the world dating back many thousands of years. Following a detailed consultation process, including traditional pulse diagnosis, the herbs are prescribed in combinations known as formulas. A formula may contain anywhere from 2 to 15 ingredients and is tailored to your individual health goals.
The herbal medicine is supplied in powdered form and preparing a dose at home is as simple as adding hot water. Christopher Booth has been using Chinese herbal medicine for over 20 years to treat a broad range of internal conditions including migraines, insomnia, hay fever, chronic fatigue, and fertility issues.

What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy was founded in the United States by a physician and surgeon by the name of Andrew Taylor Still. Dr Still believed that the medical practices of the day often caused more harm than good, and that they tended to treat symptoms rather than the underlying causes.
He thought that the ideal medical system would involve manual therapy of the musculoskeletal system, surgery and the sparing use of drugs. So in 1892, in Kirksville Missouri, he started the first school of Osteopathy.
Osteopathy has a wide variety of hands-on techniques that are used to treat back and neck pain, headaches, joint problems, muscle injuries and more. To become an osteopath in Australia requires completing a 5 year University course.
