Transition

BFE transition

I am now into my third year of being a professional Kinesiology practitioner. I love my milestone as this is the time of year clients seek my services to help their children (and themselves) transition into the new school year. Off to prep, progressing a year level or into high school and beyond. This year is extra special to me for two reasons:

1. My own little treasure is off to prep in two short weeks time. A course of Bush Flower Essence Confidence essence for her and Transition essence for me. She is between feeling excited and scared and I am between feeling thrilled for her stepping out and wishing for just a little more time.

2. Recent Kinesiology graduates are coming to check in on their confidence levels before they venture out into the world of practicing as a Professional Kinesiology Practitioner.

There are not many spaces left in the month of January. Please call me if you would like to check in ahead of this bright new school year.

Grateful

One of my favourite things at this time of year is reflecting on what has gone, giving thanks for the good stuff and the lessons learned. Here are some amazing videos I have come across in the last few days that inspired me to take a break from my break to share with you.

Enjoy and please share your favourite videos, audio or blog posts about gratitude.

Would you like to look at exploring how you can boost your life and maximise your gratitude? Book in for a consultation with me today. I look forward to hearing from you.

It’s Mental Health Week

blogTextile Souk 026

After a bit of an absence from posting, I thought now is the time to talk about techniques I use for helping with emotional and mental health; emotional stress release, tapping, removing conflicts, working with self worth, affirmations, goal setting and many others.

But it can be so much more than that, which is why I love kinesiology. It may be chronic pain, food sensitivities, exposure to allergens, sensory processing or so many more things that are underlying factors to your loved one’s or your mental health issues. A kinesiology consultation is all about what your body needs right now to bring it into balance.

Please call or message if you would like to check in on your mental health.

Client feedback: chronic jaw pain

Such a lovely message from a client greeted me when I woke this morning. K came to see me last week about a chronically painful jaw and this is her feedback after one consultation:

Hi Lisa, a quick note – the jaw is going great guns – each day after your consult its getting better. Today has been the best day yet – I am finding that I am not clenching so much at nite time and the jaw is more relaxed. The ache seems to have almost disappeared. The morning after that first visit I got out of bed at 5.30 – first time I have got up that early since I finished work – [husband] could not believe it!! Feeling positive and on track. Thanks so much – I am very grateful – job well done!!

Thank you K for your feedback and permission to share. I am looking forward to our follow up in a couple of weeks.

I have limited spaced left over the school holidays still available if there is something I can help you or your child with. 0418 186 734

Some of my favourite books and websites for recipes and nutritional information

I am often asked about what books and websites I look at for recipes and knowledge about nutrition. Today I received my third request in as many days I thought I should write a post to share some of my favourite books and haunts on the web.

The Paleo Approach book with Cookbook soon to be released. Sarah Ballantyne PhD is amazing. I bought this book on my iPad and soon after had to get the hardcopy too. It is a comprehensive guide to eating for anyone with autoimmune conditions (there are hundreds of the suckers affecting millions of people) behavioural or digestive issues. Some of the science is pretty heavy, but if you don’t want that you can skip ahead to the practical guides. Sarah’s website is The Paleo Mom. I love it and her facebook page so much.

Against All Grain by Dannielle Walker is a favourite that I have on my iPad and am looking forward to getting a hard copy too. My daughter Elizabeth adores her Cinnamon- Raisin Coffee Cake. Website: Against All Grain

Quirky Cooking is on its way to me as we speak from Thermomix. I LOVE Jo’s site Quirky Cooking and look forward to having this book in my kitchen. My Gretchen’s favourite recipe is Flourless Gooey Fudge Brownies

Another awesome Aussie Mum is Bianca of Wholefood Simply. Her site is visually spectacular and recipes amazing. Last Christmas, our teacher, school support staff and daycare provider gift of choice were the Jersey Caramels. Even those on a “normal” diet loved them.

Lauren at Empowered Sustenance really knows her stuff. Her Coconut Flour Pumpkin Muffins are the most delicious cupcakes that I have tasted since dropping gluten all those moons ago. My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

Another great one is The Healthy Chef: Theresa Cutter. A favourite in our parts is Banana Chia Coconut Bread

Other books I bought and loved are Nourishing Traditions, Gut and Psychology Syndrome, and Nutrient Power.

Over to you. I would love to hear your favourite websites and books. Please join the conversation and share your thoughts.

Green Eggs

Something new for breakfast today, Green Eggs.

I took some mixed salad leaves and mushed them in the thermomix, added 6 eggs and blended. Cooked in a pan over mid heat turning once the batter was cooked through. Big girls approved, I loved it and little girl is not willing to try (yet). I hope your week is off to a good start.

1st Quarter Recap

Photo 31-03-2014 10 37 31

March 31 already! How has the first quarter of your year been? (Or the last quarter for those who observe Astrological New Year)

I have been asking clients and friends over the last week or so to share their thoughts on the three months just gone. Some have found it exhilarating, fulfilling and joyous with others saying they have had their whole year’s drama in that little window of time leaving them feeling overwhelmed and a desire to feel safe, focused and at peace no matter what life is throwing their way.

Checking in on my goals for the year, I have changed in several ways, including the direction I am taking my Kinesiology clinic in. There has been a limit to the volume of clients I see, allowing a mobile service to those with special needs like my darling clients in care homes. Two days a week I am performing admin for my awesome college and affiliated clinic where I get to help the running of a well-respected business and aid Kinesiologists of the future. Personally things have been busy (to say the least) with one of my daughters needing lots of love and extra attention. With our supportive professional network along with friends old and new, we are coming through this time and feel optimistic about the future.

Reviewing my planner has prompted me to remember the big picture and the fact that we have so much to be thankful for. I must admit has been enjoyable scribbling out the goals that no longer sit with me, celebrating the things that I have accomplished and looking toward the next dream.

I would love to hear from you. How have the last three months been for you, and what is your wish moving forward? If you would like to see how I can help you achieve your goals, please call or email.
