It is my treat to you as I invite you to discover your inner strength.

    When it comes to celebrating Women’s Month, there is a well-known saying that is frequently cited: “Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” Strong women lift each other up, encourage each other, and support each other through the different journeys they each undertake. In other words, her strength is intertwined with the strength of those who stand by her in good times and bad.

    A woman’s strength also comes from her mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. We need to empower ourselves and others to be the best that we can be.

    Gaining and sharing knowledge is an important way we can empower ourselves as women. This is why this Women’s Month, I want to share with you two essential physiological features that have a significant impact on a woman’s overall wellbeing and the role Kinesiology can play in the healing processes.


    The first is our hormones. When our hormones are functioning properly, we don’t pay much attention to them, but hell hath no fury like a woman suffering from a hormonal imbalance.

    Nothing is more difficult than juggling a hectic daily schedule when everything feels out of sync. Hormones are the carriers of our emotions, and it can feel as though our whole world is crashing down around us when we’re experiencing an imbalance. Our lives feel distorted beyond proportion.

    Our endocrine system, which includes our thyroid, adrenal glands, and pancreas, are principally in charge of hormone regulation. Hormones are chemical signals that coordinate a range of bodily functions and processes.

    Signs or symptoms of a hormonal imbalance include weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, muscle tenderness and weakness. Imbalances can have far-reaching consequences, affecting our reproductive systems, monthly cycles (irregular periods), and conceiving.

    We don’t always realise the cause for feelings we experience and this in addition compounds our emotional state, making us feel exceptionally overwhelmed.


    Pelvic floor challenges can be very uncomfortable and painful for women, negatively influencing various areas of her life.

    Healthline explains it perfectly when describing the pelvic floor as a series of muscles and tissues that forms a sling, or hammock, at the bottom of your pelvis. It is this sling that holds your organs in place.

    With a hypotonic pelvic floor (poor muscle tone), you might notice issues such as prolapse of a pelvic organ or incontinence.

    With a hypertonic pelvic floor (overly tight muscles), you might experience constipation and/or painful intercourse.

    A balanced pelvis creates a strong base for a balanced mind and body.


    Because our bodies are unique, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each woman has different healing needs. A kinesiologist will seek to correct neural or physiological pathways that are contributing to the imbalance and mobilise specialised protocols to improve the body’s efficiency.

    The modalities used to attend to female-related health challenges involving the pelvic floor and endocrine systems will differ from person to person according to the underlying causes. Kinesiology assesses the energy changes of the body at a cellular level and aims to improve the body’s performance through techniques such as neuro training and neural organisation.

    Kinesiologists can help you get your nervous and endocrine systems back on track, enabling you to live life to its fullest.
