Treatments with Anna Maria...

Holistic Assessment
After a welcome and history taking, a session follows with mutual agreement between client and therapist. A session usually commences with Kinesiology muscle testing and Biofeedback technique, tapping into the person Body Mind and spirit. This all encompassing Holistic approach to the assessment of the client allows me to source the underlying cause and area requiring treatment.
In addition a full Physical assessment of posture/movement and muscle strength will be evaluated ,if indicated. An examination of soft tissue and joint movement using a variety of physical assessment tools combined with renowned Kinesiology techniques. The individual may not require structural work. ie. Nutritional,emotional,or energy balancing may be indicated. Treatment is focused on the Needs of the person to allow Auto-regulation and healing to take place. Working in this way provides the client to make real and lasting changes -enjoying life as it is intended.
I often proceed with a combination of treatments at 1 session-a customised plan for each client. Working on different levels allows optimum healing of Mind - Body - Spirit.

I firmly believe in prevention is better than cure!
