Kinesiology 1:1 Session FAQ

Your muscles are connected to your brain via the nervous system. These muscles form groups that are also connected to organs in your body. Kinesiology utilises the muscles and their connection to the subconscious part of the brain, to access programs and emotional states that are often out of your awareness.

90% of our biochemical processes stem from the subconscious part of the brain, which not only oversees involuntary actions like our breath and heart beat but also stores our memories and past experiences. It is from these memories and experiences that our core beliefs, thoughts, behaviours, personality, and habits are formed.

Utilising this tool to become aware of what is specifically blocking your path to repair, or your momentum, Bend Like Bamboo specialises in developing a personalised wellness plan which empowers you with the tools and information you need to gain long-lasting, life-changing results.

Ahead of your first session you will be sent a New Client Form and Metabolic Test to complete. These forms allow Amanda to assess you structurally, biochemically, emotionally, nutritionally, and electromagnetically. This information will be used by Amanda to prepare for your first session. 

Your first introductory session is 2 hours in duration. In the first 45 minutes Amanda will review the information you provided in your forms with you. You will discuss your mind, body, nutrition, posture, as well as your current goals.  The remainder of the session will be dedicated to mindset coaching and a 45 minute kinesiology tune up.

We recommend you wear light, comfortable clothing for your session as you will be lying on the kinesiology table for a period of time and may be asked to complete some gentle range of motion tests.

You will be provided a pen and notebook at your first session so that you can record outcomes.

No other preparation ahead of your session is required.

An individual’s response to a kinesiology session will vary. 

Many people report feeling fantastic, energetic, and light after a session. Others report feeling tired and sluggish for a day or so as their energy re-organises.

If you fall into the second category and don’t feel yourself our advice is to be kind to yourself, listen to your body, eat well, and rest as much as possible until you feel better.
 

Of course, if you have any concerns about how you are feeling, please call us to discuss.

1:1 sessions are held at the Bend Like Bamboo practice in Melbourne, Victoria. In these sessions, clients enjoy a Kinesiology reset as well as mindset coaching.

Amanda is unable to complete kinesiology sessions via video conference due to the physical nature of kinesiology practice. 

Video Coaching was established to provide care to interstate, remote and international clients or those with busy schedules, or mobility issues. By utilising her knowledge of the mind-body connection, she is able to coach these clients online using similar methods with excellent results.

Your first introductory session is 2 hours in duration and ongoing sessions are 1 hour in duration.

Yes of course, we welcome you having a support person attend your first session.

The kinesiology tune-ups are best conducted one on one to allow uninhibited communication between you and your practitioner.

We bundle the Optimal Health Program with 5 sessions to promote accountability and also to provide clients with a discount to reward their commitment.
