What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is an holistic approach to long lasting health and vitality. Discovered and developed over the past 100 years, kinesiology incorporates western physiological healing science with ancient eastern energetic healing techniques. In this way, kinesiology can address a wide range of physical, nutritional, emotional, mental and spiritual issues. Results can be felt immediately. Kinesiology is unique in that the kinesiologist is the facilitator of the body’s own intelligence to be healed and whole.

The main tool used in kinesiology is gentle muscle monitoring. This is a form of direct communication with the physical, cellular, mental and emotional systems of the body. The muscle response from the client directs the kinesiologist to the cause of the client’s problem and also to the correction required in order to resolve the problem.

Correction techniques used to help the body regain health include:

    • Meridian and acupoint stimulatio
    • Acupressure (skin is not pierced)
    • Muscle stimulation
    • Sound
    • Emotional stress release
    • Flower essences and vibrational remedies
    • Specific exercises such as holding stress points, reading affirmations.

Kinesiology can help you improve all aspects of life...

...from day to day living to your performance in education, sport, business, finance, relationships...

    • Achieving and goal setting
    • Allergies
    • Anxiety, stress
    • Brain integration
    • Digestive disturbances
    • Disorders and disease
    • Eating disorders
    • Exhaustion
    • Fears and phobias
    • Hormonal issues
    • Learning difficulties and memory
    • Low energy
    • Muscular pain & sporting injuries
    • Sleeping difficulties
    • Weight loss and more



I studied Physiotherapy in Berlin, Germany, qualifying in 1979. Before I came to Perth in January '99, I owned a busy practice for Sports-Physiotherapy and Kinesiology in Darmstadt, Germany. 

I am holding a Diploma in Kinesiology.

I am a qualified practitioner and also a teacher for Touch for Health Kinesiology and Brain Gym®.

I have been a health professional for 30 years.

During this time I have developed a broad skill-set in a large variety of natural therapies and techniques.

I have in-depth knowledge of remedial massage therapies, Reiki, Reflexology, physical exercise and nutrition.

I love using the highest quality essential oils for Aromatherapy.

I am a Nordic Walking instructor.

I see myself as an agent of change, wielding gentle, yet powerful tools!

Emotional Well being

Feeling confused, irritated, "all at sea"?

Feel depressed and defeated?

I am here to help you feel safe and at peace again .

To bring yourself into a state of emotional balance, I am using highest quality essential oils for aromatherapy and massage therapy.

Other powerful techniques are:

  • Kinesiology stress release
  • Emotional Freedom technique
  • Massage
  • Brain Gym balances for whole brain integration

Combine them together and they make powerful agents of change!

Diffusing essential oils: The natural properties found in essential oils produce a soothing, uplifting effect on the mind and emotions. When an oil containing the optimum level of beneficial constituents is diffused or applied topically, the result fosters a sense of emotional balance and well-being.

When the aroma of essential oils is inhaled, the scent travels to the reticular system of the brain stem where emotions and memories are connected. This enables essential oils to improve emotional wellness in many ways. Those haunted by negative memories can use a cleansing blend, and in times of stress or mental fatigue a rejuvenating oil can remove emotional stressors and leave you feeling mentally invigorated. Other essential oils increase feelings of courage and determination when faced with life's many challenges.

Smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the amygdala in the limbic lobe—the emotional control centre—of the brain.

Essential oils have long been appreciated for their uplifting, calming, and clarifying effects on emotional wellness. By diffusing essential oils or applying them topically to targeted areas of the body, the beneficial constituents in essential oils may re-establish balance.
