About North Shore kinesiology

What Is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines which use the gentle art of muscle monitoring to access information about a person’s well-being. Originating in the 1970’s, it combines Western techniques and Eastern wisdom to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Kinesiology identifies the elements which inhibit the body’s natural internal energies and accessing the life enhancing potential within the individual."
- Definition approved by the Australian Kinesiology Association 1999.

We all experience and manage stress on a day to day basis. The way we physically and mentally store this stress can impact our health, happiness and general wellbeing. Kinesiology helps to remove the issues that keep a person from thriving.

  • About Barbara Frei

    Hello, I’m Barbara.

    Welcome to North Shore Kinesiology in Willoughby, NSW.

    In this warm, inviting and judgement-free space, I’ll listen to what’s going on in your life and design a session just for you.

    How I can help

    As a Holistic Kinesiologist and Mind Body Medicine Practitioner I offer tools and knowledge to assist you with life’s ups and downs.

    This involves:

    • Listening carefully to your needs, and determining what you want to achieve from our session
    • Teasing out any physical and emotional concerns
    • Allowing you to connect more deeply with your purpose and values, rather than looking for external motivation
    • Providing tailored insights and guidance to boost your wellness and enjoyment of life.
    Why me?

    I love what I do, and helping people brings me so much joy. While I have all the appropriate credentials (see right), I also have some very relatable life experiences to draw upon in my sessions with you.

    I know firsthand that life involves constant change and uncertainty. I understand how it feels to be alone in a new place, switch career paths later in life, battle the pressures of single parenting and struggle to find time for self-care.

    I’m here to empower you to navigate life’s transitions, and I believe we can do this by tapping into your full potential and accessing your inner strength.
