A glowing endorsement indeed from probably one of my toughest clients. My big girl is a ballerina but does not have a lot of strength in her upper body. She has recently decided that she NEEDS to be able to do handstands and cartwheels. Today and school she hurt her back doing exactly that. She rated her pain at 7 and after a few minutes on the table is feeling wonderful again. I love what I do so much and that it can make such a difference in such a short amount of time, especially in acute conditions.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Over to you. I would love to hear your favourite websites and books. Please join the conversation and share your thoughts.
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.
