What does the first visit involve?

The aim of the first visit is to get clear on what your challenge is as determined by your health history and then undergoing physical assessments in relation to your challenges. 


The first visit is about putting together pieces of your health puzzle to create a thorough clinical picture.From here ill be able to determine;


  • If more tests are required, ie xrays, bloods, hormones, pyrrole

  • If you are best served here or in another practice

  • What are the specific next steps to help you with your health journey



What does the 2nd visit involve?

Typically this is where your findings from the initial visit are explained and your individual care plan and strategy is laid out. Its important we are on the same page with this, if you're on board with the plan and you're clear on what you want to achieve and why, your initial healing journey will be much more successful.


If I believe I have structural, emotional AND nutritional stress affecting my health, where do you start? At the next first step that will have the most amount of impact.

That priority will be determined by your answers to the questionnaire and the functional testing that is carried out.

Unfortunately the largest increases in chronic health problems is in Children.




How long does it take until Im 'better'?

The first step is be clear on what 'better' represents for you.

Since stress and ill health is usually multi factorial and accumulative, determining what is going on and for how long is an important piece of the puzzle in coming up with a individual careplan and strategy for you. For some people, feeling “better” can be almost immediate, for others it can take longer. Our aim, is not have you instantly feeling better, but healing better. 

One thing Ive certainly noticed about people living a life by design rather than by default is frequency over duration. Healthy habits done often will lead to healthier outcomes much more so than doing a healthy activity for a long period of time, but only rarely (think brushing teeth, healthy eating and movement)


What is Sympathetic Dominance?

Its is when your sympathetic nerve system (fight or flight response) is wound up over a period of time and a collection of symptoms may be occurring as a result.

Our brains ability to hold up our posture – and therefore get oxygen to our brain – is comprimised.  Digestion, moods and stress hormones can all be affected. Helping your nerve system shift to be more parasympathetic (rest, digest, repair and detox) is vitally important. This is done by looking at the causes of the sympathetic dominance and help correct it. Since it is typically multi factorial reasons at play, looking at structural tension, chemical and nutritional toxins, mental and emotional factors as well as your perceptions all play a part. 


Why do more people sicker today than ever before?

Chronic illness rates are higher than ever before in first world countries.


What is stress? Can you fix it?

Stress gets a bad reputation, sometimes rightly, sometimes wrongly.

Not all stress is bad. It helps us grow, to expand. Think of study or going to the gym. It is when we are not able to adapt to this stress that our health is going to suffer. 


Lets define a few terms for clarity;

Stress: The inability to adapt to a changing environment

Eustress: An activity or event that adds growth and enhances wellbeing

Distress: An activity or event that decreases wellbeing

What is stressful for one person, may not necessarily be stressful for another.

We help by not taking away future stressers but helping your body improving your bodys ability to adapt.


Do you help get rid of 'bad' emotions?

You wont hear me use the words 'good' or 'bad' with emotions. ALL emotions serve a purpose. ALL of them. Or we wouldn't have them. Think of the word e-motion to help you remember to allow emotions to be expressed and moved through you. If you're holding onto certain beliefs and emotions, then problems can arise. Structural, nutritional and your own beliefs and perceptions all contribute to how we feel.


Whats interesting is that our subconscious is vastly more responsible for our behaviours than our conscious mind (over 95% according to Dr Bruce Lipton The Biology of Belief) so our past experienced feelings and perceptions are hugely responsible for our health and future life path. N.E.T sessions and Integrative Freedom Process (put link here) is a powerful way to address some of these emotions that are hard to let go of or what some may label 'bad'.
