Holistic is a word so often used by Natural Health Practitioners to describe their treatments, but what does it actually mean?
OED description under "Philosophy" states: "characterized by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole"
and under "Medicine" states "characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease"
Linda's Blog about all things Kinesiology
CONFESSION TIME – I really like the Little Mix new single “Little Me”. Yep as a 54 year old definitely non-groupie non-X-Factor non-girl/boy band type, that song really spoke to me and it got me thinking, what would I tell me “little me” if I could. Of course there are many therapies that do use this kind of technique – hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT, TFT and even kinesiology has tools and exercises that aim to redress the balance of old unhelpful thought patterns, but somehow the beat of the song and simple mature lyrics really hit home.
So, Little Linda, this is what I say to you…
TOP reasons for having a Kinesiology Treatment
Preventative healthcare means you’ll save time and money in the long term, you will look and feel wonderful and have
more chance of achieving your goals
Your body will communicate what it needs through the muscle test – no guesswork – you know the treatment will be targeted to YOU and will not be generic
No other treatment is as holistic – kinesiology approaches all elements of emotion, nutrition, chemicals, structure and energetic, which means you are receiving several treatments in one
Kinesiology helps you achieve positive change in your life – clarity of purpose, focus and direction - no more confusing messages or difficulty knowing what lifestyle changes to make
Less Time off Sick
Your employer will love you (even more)...!....
Be Listened To
When else can you lie down for 45 minutes to 1 hour and have someone REALLY listen to you.....
Everyone will want to know your secret…
Let 2014 be the year you re-visit your Kinesiologist for regular sessions....
I was at a function the other day where the inevitable question came up “what do you do”.
Hmm…. in my “pre-Partnered” days of (rare) clubbing and discos (showing my age now) I would experiment with such lofty titles of “Trainee Brain Surgeon” or, “Private Investigator” and when in a more frivolous mood, “Stripper”.!
Now I have a quandary. All the marketing advice tells us that we should explain the RESULTS not the TOOL and it should be snappy - so some of my esteemed colleagues say such things as “I make people feel wonderful and full of health” or “I use natural health methods and a range of techniques to restore people’s health and vitality”. Somehow that all doesn’t sit right with me – I’m not saying it’s wrong, just that it doesn’t fit my personality or feel right for me.
When I was newly qualified I tried “Kinesiologist”, which was usually met with a quizzical “what’s that” and then followed by glazed eyes as I went into long explanations of how marvellous it is and how
Tips for doing what you dont want to
You know how it is - you know what's "good for you", you know what you "should" do, but somehow it's just too easy to forget...!! So my blog today is about how to make some of those tedious processes become easy good habits and a bit more manageable. To kick off: -
I was googling something to do with the cost of my car the other day and came up with this analogy for the cost of natural preventative healthcare.
Apparently the average cost of running a car these days is £6700 p.a. You certainly wouldn't want your car to run out of fuel, oil and water and have to have it serviced and MOT'd
Having a kinesiology top up treatment with me 4 times a year would cost just £200 - treat it like insurance.....!
Thats £16.66 per month, or £3.84 per week or 56p per day
So - one bag of crisps per day OR 10 cigarettes per week OR 2 lattes per week.... Is that really not worth doing the swap for improved energy, reduced stress levels and a better running engine..!!!
Should PRACTITIONERS have to be PERFECT
Oh how I have asked myself this time and again..!
How many hairdressers do we see with a less than perfect hairdo.. or carpenters with much work to do at home .. or dentists with awful teeth… or manicurists with chipped fingernails - you get my drift.!?
Of course, the truth is that none of us are “perfect” – or as I prefer to think “perfect in our imperfections”. I guess we are all “work in progress”
In the lovely circles I now mix in, “positive mental attitude” and “thinking big” and “thoughts become things” are all phrases I hear a lot of - and that really is great. I wholeheartedly believe that illness is caused by constant negativity, and who wants to be around a whinger and whiner all the time!
In kinesiology we have many techniques for enforcing positive affirmations, and very successful and helpful they are too. However, when I am
