What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is a non-invasive energetic medicine. It uses philosophies of energy flow from Traditional Chinese Medicine embracing meridian systems and techniques of acupressure.
Kinesiologists work on improving health and wellbeing by stimulating the client’s own healing potential. Kinesiologists do not claim to diagnose and label illness. We work with stress patterns, signs and symptoms.
Kinesiology uses muscles as monitors to access holistic information held by the core-operating unit of the entire body-mind system; the subconscious. About 90% of our mind is subconscious.

What is Energy Balancing and Healing?
Even with a great exercise regime and diet, we can still feel slightly off-kilter or unaligned. By identifying blockages and obstacles to growth, energy healing aims to restore the mind, body, and soul to a state of perfect equilibrium – if you like call it a reconnection with your true self. The ultimate aim is to become aware of the various forces influencing your energy levels and to learn to make decisions, which will maximize your energy flow and sense of well-being.
At the conclusion of a session clients usually feel more grounded and clear, and often experience a distinct lightness of being. By identifying blockages and obstacles to growth, Jody’s treatments stimulate a re-connection with a more authentic sense of self.
Although the restorative benefits of the process are apparent at any point in your life, the most powerful results are often seen when recovering from an illness, injury or trauma. Available as an individual session or full, twelve-week energy alignment.
