Here is a case of a woman with night terrors and how we used Kinesiology to support her. She suffered with regular panic attacks at night which would wake her up and she would spend an hour on the toilet vomiting and having diarrhea. This had been a problem she experienced for many years.
How many sessions: 3 sessions over a 3 month period
What I did in the clinic: I worked on supporting the endocrine system and nervous system with a Kinesiology technique called an Endocrine Boost. The jaw was very tight and we worked on releasing the tension in each session. We also worked emotionally with her fear of losing control.
What she did at home: She incorporated a protein and fibre shake into her diet and spent time relaxing and unwinding each day. She became aware of what she wanted to do rather than what she felt she ‘should’ do.
What supplements she took: B complex, Niacin B3, Pantothenic Acid B5, Glandular support, Food enzymes, Organic protein shake, Magnesium
What she says: I found my ability to relax became increasingly easier as the weeks passed. After three visits to Laura the panic attacks had stopped and I emerged as a woman with control of herself and no longer the victim of her fears. I feel strongly enough about the treatment I have received to recommend that if you have any ailments, mental or physical, that you go for Kinesiology.

Here is a case of a man with IBS and how we used Kinesiology to support him.
How many sessions: 8 over a 2 year period
What I did in the clinic: I have always worked on supporting his digestive system and utilizing Kinesiology techniques for the Ileo Caecal Valve. I have also supported his glandular system to minimize the impact of stress in his life.
What he did at home: Cut out wheat and milk and changed his diet. He incorporated a protein and fibre shake into his diet also. This worked almost instantly and he felt much better. If he integrates too much wheat in his diet he becomes aware that his digestion needs further support and work.
What supplements he took: B complex, Glandular support, Food enzymes, Organic protein shake, Water soluble fibre powder, Fat soluble fibre powder
What he says: IBS was a constant worry in my life causing great discomfort and stress, my doctor could offer me no cure just the usual words of advice proving to be no help at all. By a recommendation I came across Claire and her practice and over the course of the last two years the results have been nothing short of amazing! Gone is the constant worry of IBS and the stress to be replaced by a new found confidence in every aspect of my life.

So what is Kinesiology? It is a good question. And we, as practitioners, get asked that question a lot especially as it’s relatively unknown in this country.
Kinesiology literally translated means ‘the study or science of movement’.
There are a few different types of Kinesiology out there just to make things nice and confusing – Systematic Kinesiology, Applied Kinesiology and Three in One Kinesiology to name a few.
We specialise in Systematic Kinesiology which was born out of the work of Dr George Goodheart in the 1960′s who originally developed Applied Kinesiology.
At the heart of Systematic Kinesiology is the theory of muscle testing. We have 45 muscles in our bodies which are connected by neuro pathways to different organs. By applying pressure to a muscle to gauge its response, a Kinesiologist is able to have ‘bio-feedback’ with that organ meridian and uncover the underlying cause of health problems and symptoms.
Once the cause is identified, a Systematic Kinesiologist supports the individual using
- Kinesiology techniques
- Nutritional testing and recommendations
- Body work and lymphatic massage
- Acupuncture energy reflexes
- Emotional support and release
The toolbox of techniques at the hands of skilled Kinesiologist far exceeds the offering from many other therapies.
The number of Kinesiology sessions varies on the person, their problems and how well they follow any changes recommended to their diet and lifestyle. Generally, people feel a significant improvement within their first one to three appointments. A Kinesiology appointment takes approximately 90-120 minutes, follow up sessions are usually 60 minutes. Monthly appointments are usually the norm.
Kinesiology is a safe, powerful and effective therapy. Because of the techniques we use in the clinic a client usually leaves a Systematic Kinesiology session feeling very different from when they walked through the door and this is what makes this type of Kinesiology very unique and special.
