    Kinesiolgist Brighton

    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

    Cost of HealthI 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

    When I was a child there was a programme on TV called “Bizzy Lizzy”.  This little girl – called Lizzy – had a flower on her dress (which she wore ALL the time..!) which was magic.   As a child I loved magic – still do!   Whenever she touched this flower and made a wish the wish came true – how cool is that.  The draw-back was that she only got 3 wishes a day (shame) and if she over-did it and made 4, all 3 of them were rescinded….

    I always find it interesting as a Kinesiologist that when asking new clients what they eat – ie breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks – they always proceed to tell me what they don’t eat….!  It can take some gentle insistent persuasion to actually glean what actually is eaten and when.

    Of course, it can feel intimidating revealing what we consider to be “bad” habits and I hope I reassure clients that I am not there to judge, just to help.
