Is Kinesiology a Science?

Kinesiology is a very broad practice, so when we ask the big questions like Is Kinesiology a Science? we need to break down the bigger picture of Kinesiology into every aspect of the process. Services offered by most Kinesiology practitioners often include:
1. Lymphatic massage

2. Hypertonic muscle release

3. Reflex, trigger and body points

4. Flower essences and homeopathics remedies

5. Nutritional advice

6. Acupressure

Some of these may have spiritual connections, often originating from traditional Chinese methods like Tui na (Acupressure), however they have deep scientific merits to them. The science behind Kinesiology is continuing to grow and gather funding to push the limits on human knowledge and develop proven facts through extensive research. Online repositories are overflowing with peer reviewed journals that include months of dedicated and collaborative research and hard work from highly qualified researchers.

What is a Kinesiology Practitioner? 

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 Kinesiology Practitioner 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.
  • Provide assistance with allergies, stress relief, nutrition, muscle injuries and setting achievable goals.
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.
