When I first started using flower essences in Kinesiology I did not quite get or appreciate the tremendous healing power of plants, particularly flowers, which is the most concentrated area of the plants life-force. The name conjured up an image that was ‘floral’ as opposed to one of profound healing, I felt they lacked substance and lacked the credibility that other herbal tinctures had. My mind had casted a judgement, and occasionally I would cringe in clinic (especially if I was working on a man) when I was required to work the essence into a meridian, chakra or the energetic field. I would think OMG what are they thinking! The fish slapping add would come to mind. I never saw the add myself, but I’ve heard enough about it from others to get the picture. My ego desperately did not want to place me in that same category. In life it can be easy to cast judgements, especially if we lack wisdom and insight, as our minds are very well equipped in discrediting all that is not familiar. How far from their truth I was! It wasn’t until taking an essence for a conditioned belief (one that was limiting and of no value in my life) and having this belief completely eradicated in a matter of weeks that I was able to see the potent power of flower essence remedies. I had carried that belief around with me for years and all of a sudden it had completely gone, creating a space for its positive counterpart and positive change in my life. It is of no wonder essences of living flowers are among the most ancient natural healing modalities. Flower essences can help us recognise, resolve or release different conditioned ways of perceiving the world and can help us experience greater well-being and harmony in our lives. They support us in extending our consciousness beyond its present state. I am so thankful that I get to work with their energy and vibration – they are an integral part of my practice
Gluten: Is this the cause of your health complaints? You can have gluten sensitivity without having full blown celiac disease and it can be just as devastating to your health. Sadly, a great number of people with gluten sensitivity are suffering from a wide range of health complaints yet are unaware that their health problems stem from a gluten intolerance/sensitivity. Gluten, as with any food sensitivity, causes body wide inflammation and produces a wide range of effects including effects on the brain, heart, joints and digestive tract. Gluten sensitivity has been linked to most auto-immune diseases including but not limited to multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, in fact gluten sensitivity has been linked to 55 diseases in total – even autism in children! More minor complaints include fatigue, anxiety and depression – this from a grain huh… If you have any chronic illness or health complaint it is important to look for gluten sensitivity as a possible root cause. One of the primary causes of inflammation is food sensitivities, if you eat the foods that you are sensitive to, you will inflame (inflammation is one of the major causes of obesity). This causes havoc on both your digestive and immune system, leading to a host of other potential problems. Systemic inflammation has been linked to a myriad of health diseases including cancer – and unfortunately you can have inflammation without even knowing it. I refer to it as the silent assassin and it has been dubbed the 21st century’s silent killer. I don’t mean to get all serious on you but chronic inflammation can be deadly, especially over prolonged periods. If you feel gluten may be a problem for you please get in contact and we can run a serum (blood) profile to see if you are producing antibodies to gluten, gliadin and transglutaminase. This requires a blood draw from Melbourne pathology the results will be sent for analysis and then come back to me for follow up. Alternatively you can eliminate gluten from your diet completely for 2 – 4 weeks and see how you feel.
The world is growing tired of modern medicine and its failure to properly handle some dis-eases. More and more people are turning to alternative treatments such as kinesiology to address their ailments, a decision which is helping them achieve lasting results. As a leading kinesiologist in Melbourne, Kristy Allan specialises in treating the person as a whole (mind, body, and spirit) not just the symptoms or the sum of parts. Kristy believes that the true path to perfect health includes all of these elements and she strives to bring about balance and harmony throughout all of these systems to get you feeling healthy and whole once more.
Kristy has helped clients all throughout the Melbourne area; working as a kinesiologist in Fertree Gully, Box Hill, Doncaster, Ringwood, Dandenong, Wantirna and many other suburbs throughout Melbourne. It is her experience and many success stories that make her the preferred kinesiolgist in the eastern suburbs.
Kinesiology is one of the most comprehensive and holistic systems of modern natural health care. Its art and science stems from both eastern and western traditions, beautifully blending anatomy and physiology with the energetic systems that science is yet to completely comprehend. It is a modality that focuses on all the fundamental levels of our being, mind, body and spirit.
Kinesiology’s greatest potential is its ability to tap into our own mind-body wisdom. By shedding light on what is having a direct influence on the body’s processes, we are given the key to unlocking and releasing people’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual pain.
Many people who select me as their kinesiologist in Melbourne come away with a “wow” factor, wondering how on earth I was able to pin point personal and relevant information as well as factors contributing to the clients presenting complaints. In fact, many people think kinesiologists are psychic in nature due to the accuracy of information presented in a session. As intuitive as I am, the truth lies with the client. The client has all of his or her own answers, the truth of any situation, past or present. The task of me, as a therapist, is to guide the client in discovering these truths. In working with the client’s innate intelligence, namely the subconscious and higher self, we are able to allow the process to lead back to the cause, past the smoke screen of protest by the conscious mind, to seek the key which can unlock each person’s dysfunction and dis-ease. For only by discovering the hidden cause is the healing likely to be lasting.
Communication with the client’s subconscious and higher mind is established through the use of an indicator muscle, namely the brachioradialis located in the forearm. The kinesiologist and the client form an energetic circuit where communication flows freely between the two individuals. The kinesiologist will be asking the client’s body if the ailment or complaint is located at a structural, biochemical, mental/emotional or spiritual level and the client’s body responds via the indicator muscle. The kinesiologist reads the physical and energetic imprint of the presenting issue and what is required to restore function and balance. Usually multiple factors are involved, and through my experience as a practitioner, it appears everything the body manifests first began on an energetic level, brought into being by thought processes, facilitated by emotions and then physically realised. This is why there is so much more to our health problems than meets the eye. Mind, body and spirit are inseparable and that which affects one will inevitably affect the other.
Kinesiology addresses the connection between the patient’s consciousness and his or her complaints. The body has an innate ability and desire to be healthy. Given the opportunity, it also has the amazing capacity to heal itself. The process of healing involves fusing together the fracture that splits body from mind and erasing dysfunctional patterns that contribute to the dis-ease state. Due to the nature of us as unique individuals with our own unique life experiences, no two kinesiology sessions will ever be the same. I find this aspect of kinesiology so refreshing and to be a true patient centred approach to health and wellbeing.
Through practising Kinesiology in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, I have seen the phenomena of the mind-body connection constantly at work, where emotional or psychological factors are responsible for changes in physiology. Some examples include: an emotion stopping a cell taking up a vital nutrient; a thought form triggering imbalances within the hormonal system; a supressed trauma causing an organ system to become imbalanced; a deeply held belief causing neurotransmitter irregularities – the list is endless.
Restore balance and you restore function. As the client’s body is the guiding intelligence in kinesiology, there is no second guessing the root cause of the problem. A kinesiology session is all about peeling back the layers to reveal the many factors that have been involved in the manifestation of the dis-ease. Sometimes this is a quick resolution and other times more sessions are required. The client’s innate wisdom is the one who determines the revelations and progress suited to their individual needs. Nothing is given that the client can’t handle. Gentle techniques are used to restore the body back to balance, including acupressure and various form of vibrational medicine. Vibrational healing is a powerful form of medicine that bypasses the physical. It has the ability to clear old limiting beliefs and effectively restores and promotes free flowing vital energy to the cells and tissues of our bodies. Lifestyle modifications and nutritional recommendations form part of the whole client approach.
