• Kinesiology is an ideal therapy for anyone looking to manage the demands of life better, young and old.

    When we're not well, our pain, discomfort, ailments, and symptoms serve as messages that something isn't 'working' as it should. The practice of Kinesiology allows us to optimise the workings of the nervous system by finding better neurological pathways to aid the body in its healing process. Through the organised use of muscle monitoring, Kinesiology provides feedback from the rest of your body via the muscular system. The technique helps to identify imbalances in your system that have conditioned the nervous system to respond in a certain, less desirable way.

Shoulder and back pain can be referred pain from a physical issue, but it can also originate as the result of mental and emotional stress. When we think of shoulder pain, we think of causes such as frozen shoulders, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, tendinitis,…

  • Homeostasis – finding that perfect balance

    It is no secret that the body is more than just an anatomical and physiological structure. The human body is a complex, multidimensional being that operates not only on a physical level, but on a mental and emotional level too. Now imagine these levels to be the three sides of a triangle – in perfect balance, all three sides will be equally long (equilateral) and would represent a person in a state of optimal physical, mental and emotional health. Such a perfect equilibrium is nearly impossible to achieve in our fast-paced modern lifestyle, but fortunately, our wonderfully adaptive bodies have ways of compensating and compromising to help us survive.

  • My 13 Peaks Challenge adventure

    Those who know me well, know that I love running. For me it is much more than just completing a race or staying fit and healthy – it’s a way of challenging my mind and body. I find that I’m constantly applying the lessons that I’ve learnt in running, to my daily life. Here’s an example: I recently completed the 13 Peaks Challenge with a group of friends. This challenge entailed climbing 13 different peaks in the Table Mountain range, and we completed it over six days. Needless to say, it was tough.
