> Functional Neurology

Functional Neurology (FN) is a holistic approach to healthcare that aims to optimise the function of the nervous system. This is achieved through a combination of diagnostic testing, targeted therapies, and lifestyle modifications. By identifying and addressing underlying neurological imbalances, FN can help improve a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, migraines, balance and coordination disorders, cognitive dysfunction, sleep disorders, stress and anxiety, digestive issues, immune function, mood disorders, movement disorders, sensory processing issues, post-concussion syndrome, and autonomic dysfunction. As the nervous system plays a critical role in regulating bodily functions, optimising nervous system function can help improve overall health and wellbeing.

One of the key benefits of FN is its focus on individualised care, everyone receives a comprehensive assessment to determine their unique needs and treatment plan — this may include a combination of therapeutic techniques, exercises to improve brain and nervous system integration and function, nutritional counselling, and/or lifestyle modifications.

 

Overall, FN is a safe and effective approach to healthcare that can help a person achieve optimal health and wellness by addressing a wide range of neurological conditions and symptoms.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that aims to improve the functioning of the central nervous system by applying light pressure to the skull, spine, and pelvis to release tension and promote relaxation. This therapy is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including headaches, and stress-related disorders, and has been demonstrated to have numerous benefits for the body and mind. By releasing tension in the central nervous system, it can help to reduce pain, improve sleep, and boost the immune system — making it effective in treating conditions such as migraines, chronic fatigue, and anxiety. Overall, CST can promote a sense of deep relaxation and well-being, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a type of physical therapy that focuses on releasing tension in the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs. This technique involves applying gentle pressure to the affected area to help release tension and improve mobility. MFR is used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, and fibromyalgia. By releasing tension in the fascia, MFR can help reduce pain, improve flexibility, and increase range of motion. Additionally, this technique can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation. Overall, MFR is a safe and effective way to treat a variety of conditions and improve overall health and wellness.

Kinesiology & Mind-Body Integration

Kinesiology (KIN) is a holistic and integrative modality that utilizes muscle monitoring as a biofeedback mechanism to identify anatomical, physiological, and psychological stressors in an individual. It is a non-invasive and client-centered approach that employs muscle testing to detect imbalances in the body. By applying gentle pressure to a muscle's midpoint, kinesiology can reveal various symptoms and issues. The technique employs non-invasive scientific methods to maintain physical, emotional, and spiritual health, based the premise that the body can heal itself when provided with the right conditions. The primary goal of any kinesiology session, or 'balance,' is to identify and resolve the root cause of any imbalance, which may be nutritional, emotional, structural, psychological, energetic, or even spiritual — such as an attitude or a forgotten memory.

Mind-body integration (MBI), on the other hand, is the practice of connecting the mind and body to promote overall health and well-being It involves techniques such as meditation, yoga, and deep breathing exercises to help individuals achieve a state of balance and harmony between their physical and mental selves.

Alpha Alignment Technique™

The Alpha Alignment Technique™ (AAT), previously known as the Beta Release Technique, is a series of physical movements that can quickly alleviate stress, discomfort, and dis-ease. By balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain into an ‘alpha-wave’ healing state, the technique realigns the body’s nervous system back into a state of balance, allowing for a more natural energy flow throughout the body. This process removes or lessens blockages and restrictions, leading to improvements in physical, mental, emotional, energetic, structural, muscular, vascular, and chemical levels. With this alignment, individuals can better handle subtle negative stresses and avoid retreating into a brain-locked, detached world.

 

The Alpha Alignment Technique™ provides a way to overcome life's challenges and reach your full potential. It stands out from psychology, meditation, yoga, therapeutics, chiropractic, massage, and medicine. The technique is unique, powerful, and must be experienced to be fully understood.

Integrative Functional Medicine & Test-Based Nutrition

Integrative Functional Medicine and Test-Based Nutrition is a patient-centered, holistic approach focused on identifying the root causes of chronic conditions. By analyzing your unique health history, this approach recommends personalized nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle modifications to support your digestive and immune systems. Specific lab tests may be required to determine underlying factors before addressing key areas such as detoxification and colon health, anti-inflammatory nutrition, mitochondrial health, digestion, cold therapy, fasting, hydration, sleep, and breathing. This approach forms the foundation for making lasting improvements to your health.

 

Integrative Functional Medicine utilises a range of evidence-based therapies, including nutrition, lifestyle changes, and supplements, to support the body's natural healing processes. The goal is to promote optimal health and prevent chronic diseases by addressing the underlying causes rather than merely treating symptoms. By taking a comprehensive approach to healthcare, Integrative Functional Medicine aims to empower patients to take an active role in their well-being. This approach recognises the uniqueness of each individual, requiring a personalised treatment plan to achieve optimal health.
