Diploma in Kinesiology, Adv.Dip.Functional Kinesiology (completing Dec 2017) Kinesiologist and Allergy Advisor
Kinesiology provides an alternative method of investigating allergies for those who do not wish to have a blood test so is perfect for children and infants where blood tests can be rather traumatic. There are many adults also that may prefer to utilise kinesiology for their symptoms too. Lisa’s kind and gentle manner will help you and your child feel at ease while having kinesiology. She will guide you through the process so you have full knowledge of your child’s responses to the therapy. Kinesiology is suitable for all ages from birth onwards.
With allergies and food intolerances on the rise, kinesiology provides a non-invasive and gentle method of finding what substances are causing stress on the physiology of your body. Lisa will use the ‘bio-feedback’ mechanism from your central nervous system to determine the stresses that relate to your symptoms. Kinesiology can reduce symptoms and may lead to full elimination of the body’s reaction to certain foods and allergens. Lisa will also investigate any nutritional imbalance in your body and through kinesiology, can help your digestive system function at its best so you’re achieving optimal absorption of the nutrients from the food you consume.
Lisa will look at what your body is showing a stress/imbalance to, starting with the most common culprits such as wheat, gluten, nuts, lactose and food additives. Working through many common allergens (over 100), she can determine which ones your body is most sensitive to and commence a series of sessions to balance your immune system responses and metabolism to the specific substance/s. Once your body is able to recognise the substance and understands it is no longer an ‘enemy’, your body will reduce or cease to show the symptoms of an allergic reaction or intolerance that it once did. Lisa looks forward to working with both adults and children in all areas of Kinesiology in addition to the specific needs of allergy suffers.
Lisa’s journey to natural health has been instigated by her own health concerns over many years. With an upbringing of ‘going to the doctor’ for just about anything that wasn’t quite right, it became the normal way of dealing with ailments for many years. Lisa soon realised she was in fact becoming more and more unhealthy and not taking responsibility for her own health in the way she should. Having personally experienced allergies, asthma, weight gain, and other health issues at times, the majority of these have now been assisted, if not completely alleviated through natural therapies alongside any essential medical therapies needed.
Lisa is a compassionate and caring and is excited to have joined the Perth Allergy Clinic Team to bring kinesiology to you. Kinesiology covers anatomy & physiology, neurology, nutrition, musculoskeletal, hormonal and biological systems of the body alongside the emotional and spiritual aspects to bring holistic mind and body balance to the whole person. Lisa’s greatest area of interest lies in nutrition and gut health, knowing that this has been a large part of her own progression to better health. Her passion for kinesiology and how it can help every person in a profound yet gentle way will keep Lisa working as a kinesiologist.
