What is Kinesiology?
A question I often respond differently to, depending on who is asking it.
Why? That depends on your level of perception and the understanding that everything is connected is some way or another.
For some, a simple explanation is that – ‘I assist the levels of stress within the structures of the body’
For others= The body has a surrounding and within it a electrical network or grid. When anything… I mean anything, does not enhance or maintain your body’s health or balance it impacts this electrical system and muscles cannot hold the strength against physical pressure- this is called Muscle Monitoring.
This relationship between the body’s electrical network and muscular system is a natural part of the human system and falls within the laws of Physics- Their is NOTHING magical or mystical about it. Using this technique can assess layers of stress in a unbiased way. It allows a way to communicate to your whole body and beyond. Ultimately you can see what is supportive or beneficial to your health & wellbeing and what is not. Truely a modality of great assistance in todays health practices.
What is Mind & Body Medicine (MBM)?
This modality highlights the connection of the Mind & Body.
Here we understand the brain and the response to stimulus. The body, including your posture, is controlled by our Central Nervous System. Our CNS is controlled by our brain. Our brain responds to how we perceive our environment. This is how the Mind effects the Body. How we think or are responding effects the way we move and/or perform.
Our digestion is a manifestation of our CNS and what we put into it- digestive disorders are the number one cause of all dis-ease.
This modality now has sufficient evidence based studies to support the theory and as much as you may or may not make the connection yet…. Your mind has a positive and or negative impact on your physical body. Combining this with Kinesiology can bring to the surface your motivating cause of your dis-ease/ illness/ condition. .
What is Qi/ Energy &“Shen”?
In most traditions/ teachings their is a greater concept. A concept that we do not end just at the physical layer. That their is a energy that we carry. A spirit/ vibe/ essence and so on….In the west energy its classified as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). We have energy in every cell so that makes us energetic beings as much as we are physical beings…..but energy doesnt stop at the outer layer of skin…Energy is all around us. Air, trees, flowers, birds, bees, animals, weather planets etc…. their is a infinite connection to everything through energy/ qi.
The Shen is a term used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Shen includes all the aspects of our consciousness, covering the whole human complex of mind, emotions, intelligence, personality, awareness and spirit. Shen governs the Spirit Conciousness of self. It resides in our Heart. House of Shen includes the concept of Shen as this is the DIRECT difference between East & Western Medicine approach. We believe health does not come from one but both.
Who should Visit?
All ages, abilities, spiritual beliefs and conditions are welcome. For the Younger generation, a creative art therapy practice has been designed to assist states of stress, look on the workshop page for more information about this process.
Often I see people that have ‘tried everything’ and still no progression on their condition. If this is you, don’t waste anymore time… book in!!!!!
Often I see people visiting when their health is in a state of pain, trauma and illness….the unfortunate manifestation of ongoing neglection to the underlying stress…due mostly to they way we live…….prevention rather than cure is the ultimate goal!
If you are after a quick fix- this may not be the best avenue for you, as most conditions need a few sessions to be restored.

Creator of House of Shen
House of Shen was created from a very clear and distinct experience in life. I spent over 17yrs in chronic illness & pain- I did what most people do, go to the Dr’s to find out whats going on… endless scans, ultrasounds etc occurred and the end result was always the same, and that was “we are not too sure what is causing this but you have 2 options, remove it surgically OR take this medication” . Being so young and not many other avenues to take I decided to take the medication.
It made me slowly deteriorate, emotionally, mentally and sent me on a roller-coaster of physical symptoms.
Back to the drawing board for me. I thought at one stage, it must be my ‘bad karma’ and I deserve it.. so, the pain killers just got stronger and I became more toxic. A vicious cycle.
I then started to dive deeply into the Holistic world and WOW! My symptoms decreased… I did however have to work on this, dive deep and open wide. Each day my wellness became more obvious and the love for life started to seep in.
Within these moments of gratitude I suddenly realised “Why did I have to suffer for so long?????? Why don’t they teach this in the schools?? Why isn’t this available to all???
It was here my direction changed completely. With my story and experience I dedicated my life to this service for myself and our communities…. Holistic living is a vital part of wellness.
I truely believe that the mind & body can heal naturally , it just needs the right recipe. We need to connect to all the pieces of ourselves and our surroundings. If you decide you are not ready for this type of work, I wish you strength and courage on your journey to wellness, House of Shen or not..
