Gently enabling you to balance your life and improve your health



How can I help you?
I have always been interested in why things happen so when I became ill some years ago I needed to get to the root of my problem and deal with the causes rather than just suppress the symptoms. My journey led me to a consultant who introduced me to kinesiology as a way to communicate with my body. This opened up a whole new way of listening to my body and understanding health. If you would like to talk to me about how I can help you, please get in touch by text, email or a phone call. 

 ‘I realised the other day that the 'presenting problem' I came with has disappeared - almost to the extent I have forgotten what it was! I do feel different .... as though some of the layers are peeling off!’


‘The bloating has gone and I am feeling much more energy’ 


‘I have forgotten how achy and unbalanced I was when I first went for treatment. I was anxious about going for long walks because my hip hurt, my knees ached and my feet were tired. Now I have none of those problems.’


KINESIOLOGY- Listening to Your Body
Kinesiology is a gentle and effective system designed to access and support all aspects of health. Each session is specific to you and your needs, works at your pace and focuses on the most important areas to address.

How Does it work?
The technique uses the muscle response to the application of light pressure  to establish the priority areas and protocols for the session. Your body has all the information you need, and kinesiology enables us to determine where to start to make a change. 

Why choose kinesiology?
It is a natural approach that works with the whole person to get to the root of an issue. You may have 

    Stress and anxiety

    Bewildering or persistent problems 

    Digestive issues 

    Lack of energy

    Repeating patterns

    Chronic and long term problems

You don’t need to be ill - kinesiology can also help you perform better at work and in sport, and feel more like yourself.


EMMETT TECHNIQUE  - Releasing and Rebalancing Muscles
EMMETT technique is a safe, simple muscle release therapy used to address pain and discomfort and improve movement restrictions.

How Does it work?
EMMETT Technique involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points on the body. In a similar way to the workings of a touch screen the body responds to this light touch by changing muscle tension and action.


Symptoms that may be assisted are
    Pain and restriction in back, hips, neck,  shoulders, knees, feet or ankles. 

    Migraines and headaches, breathing, fluid retention, lymphatic and sinus congestion.

    Discomfort during pregnancy, abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort. 

And much much more!!! 
EMMETT Technique is a complete therapy on its own and can also be used in combination with kinesiology and nutritional testing.



EPIGENETIC NUTRITIONAL TESTING - Providing the building blocks of life - 

‘Health begins in the gut’

Enjoying the best foods for you can make a huge difference to how you feel and is a simple way to take charge of your health. Modern food production and processing reduces the nutrient value of food and often adds in compounds which the body finds difficult to digest. The result is that over time your body can become both deficient and overloaded.

Epigenetic Food & Nutrition Testing works with your specific needs and can help you understand what you can do to feel good. It can help you discover

    The foods that work best for your body and those that are better to avoid or limit

Specific vitamin, mineral and fatty acid requirements

    Individual probiotics and gut support 

    And more! 


Kinesiology is used to test over many different substances including foods, food additives, chemicals, pollens, pathogens and body biochemicals. Testing indicates appropriate dietary changes and any specific supplements that can be beneficial. 



The Access Bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head, storing the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that you have ever had about anything. There are bars for Healing, Body, Control, Awareness, Creativity, Power, Ageing, Money just to name a few.


During an Access Bars session, lightly touching these 32 points on your head dissipates the electromagnetic charge that gets locked in our brains by the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that we have stored over lifetimes. Imagine if someone could press a button and mute that voice in your head that tells you that you’re not good enough or that you can’t accomplish what you dream about. That “voice” comes from those electromagnetic charges that keep us from believing we can have the life we've always known is possible.  

About Maria:

I have always been fascinated by the body and how such a complex system knows how to grow, develop and maintain itself.

My interest is in the whole person, and how the interaction of our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, foods and genes influences our wellbeing.  Physical symptoms are our body’s way of telling us that something is not quite right, and using a combination of Kinesiology, Nutritional Testing and Emmett Technique allows me to start to address problems at the level, or levels, they arise.

Working together

Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. However, just as catching a drip doesn’t solve the leak, focussing only on  symptoms may fail to get to the root of the problem.


Using an approach that can work on many levels makes it easier to look at all the strands that create and perpetuate dis-ease. Kinesiology enables us to integrate Emmett Technique and Nutritional Testing, where appropriate, to achieve the best outcome for you. 


By combing techniques we can, for example, look at nutrition, supplements or movement to support your physical body; help you tackle thoughts and beliefs that are keeping you stuck; release tensions held in muscles; and address elements of your environment that are adversely affecting you. 


Kinesiology can offer an understanding of the problem as well as a system of protocols designed to create change.
Emmett Technique can be used to address pain, restricted movement and discomfort, and for a relaxing, clearing treatment.
Nutritional testing can be used to support the changes you want to experience.
