Frequently asked questions
How does kinesiology even work?
Kinesiology uses a simple tool that anyone can learn called muscle testing. Reading subtle changes in muscle response helps the kinesiologist to find where stresses reside in your body and where they originate from. This same technique is used to ‘match’ a correction to help the body come back to health and wellbeing.
How long until I feel better?
It varies from person to person depending on how complex the issue is and how long it has been present. I usually expect to see a significant shift after one session and resolution between one and three sessions.
How many sessions should I have?
I will make recommendations but it’s completely up to you. Some people finish up when their issue is resolved. Some people continue on with monthly wellness visits. Others pop in as issues come up for them.
Can kids have kinesiology?
Yes. Kinesiology is helpful for newborns, toddlers, children and teens smoothing out the common and complex challenges found at each of these life stages. When children are too young to be muscle tested directly, their grown-up is used as a surrogate. I hold a Working With Children check.
I’m just curious about kinesiology, can I have a shorter session?
In order to have a fulfilling kinesiology experience it’s important that a thorough history is taken. This helps me to link together the information in a cohesive and understandable way for you. 75 minutes is just enough time to gather all the information I need and treat you effectively.
How does it work online?
The process is very similar to a face-to-face consult. Through a secure Zoom meeting I surrogate test on your behalf to access the information needed to clear your stresses. I guide and support you to apply the corrective techniques to your own body. This allows you to experience all the benefits of kinesiology from the comfort of your own private space or from anywhere in the world. All you need is an email address & a device – computer, laptop, iPad, tablet or a phone. I’m here for any tech support you may need.
Can I claim a rebates with my Private Health insurance?
In April 2019 health funds phased out rebates for most natural health modalities including kinesiology. This was due to a federal government decision to no longer offer subsidies for natural health to health providers. The following day the Minister for Health announced a review of this decision. We are waiting to hear the outcome.
How long have you been doing kinesiology?
13 years. I graduated from the Australian College of Complementary Medicine with a Diploma of Health Sciences (Holistic Kinesiology) in 2008. I have helped over 500 people since then including a 2-day-old baby, a non-English speaker and an Olympic athlete. In recent years I have created my own approach to kinesiology with a particular interest in the brain and begun to mentor promising kinesiologists who are commencing practice. I’m registered with the Australian Kinesiology Association.
