Life Qualifications

My life qualifications are, I am happily married and have been for over 30 years.  We have 3 beautiful children, all young adults now.  Whilst helping to raise my family I was fortunate to be able to be a stay at home mum which gave me considerable time to become fully involved in my childrens activities at school and at sporting clubs.  I supplemented our family income with a variety of casual jobs including Election officer for the State, Federal and local elections, as an exam invigilator for University of Southern Queensland and as a administrative assistant for the local court house.  I had left school at 15 and worked in the Government and as such I never had to give up my profession, so although I missed adult company I never missed the work.  I didn’t particularly like school and I never had any desire to study so it came a quite a shock when I discovered Kinesiology and made the decision to take up a profession.  Some might have called it a mid life crisis, maybe it was but what a ride it has been.

Why did I choose to become a KINESIOLOGIST?

Several years ago a member of my family became chronically ill and struggled to find help.  It was during that search for answers we discovered kinesiology.  It was of great benefit, to us, but very strange.  I came from what I would call a typical western style health regime.  If I was sick I went to the doctor, they gave me some product and I either got better or I went back.  It worked pretty well for me as I didn’t get sick very often.  My children and husband were also quite healthy, so I never had to look outside the square.  That changed when my mum came down with Ross River Fever and Chronic fatigue.  She was in her 70’s and was constantly told to stop worrying about herself and that she was just old.  But she felt terrible and so drained all the time.  There had to be something else that could help her, so we started to look and try other things.  Just someone acknowledging that all the sometimes vague symptoms were connected and that it wasn’t in her head was a relief.

Not long after that another  family member came down with Glandular Fever and other ongoing issues from the resultant infection.  Again natural therapies seemed to help more than conventional ones.  We went to see a kinesiologist not really sure what to expect.  I had never heard of a kinesiologist, let alone knew what one did.  I was very skeptical, and during the first session was even more so.  However I couldn’t explain how he could tell me things that he shouldn’t know about.  I certainly hadn’t told him, so how did he guess?  It was all very interesting but obviously a fluke!  Then I was involved in a car accident and the physio sessions didn’t appear to help.  So I decided to try that weird stuff again.  Well the outcome was my neck and back got better and I became even more curious.  I decided to do a weekend course and at that course, I loved it.  I could see that I could help my family and lots of others with this amazing modality.  This was what I had been waiting for, I had finally found something that interested me enough to study and learn.  My husband often jokes “that a week end course turned into a monster.”
