Nutrition and Kinesiology

Kinesiology is the study of human movement and the mechanics of body motions, typically focusing on physical activity, exercise, and sports performance. It encompasses various disciplines, such as biomechanics, anatomy, physiology and psychology, to understand how the body moves and functions in different situations. Kinesiologists use this knowledge to optimise performance, prevent injuries, and enhance overall health and wellbeing.

A Kinesiologist does not diagnose or treat, instead they work with the client to explore how to bring the body back into balance.

Kinesiology can work for individuals of all ages and fitness levels, from athletes aiming to enhance their sports performance to patients recovering from injuries or dealing with chronic conditions.

I’m Allison Prebble and I am dedicated to prevention as well as to alleviating conditions, ultimately guiding individuals towards reaching their goals. Through muscle response tests I can identify the imbalances and stresses in the body. I work well with deep issues, identifying imbalances in the body by monitoring your ability to hold your muscles against light pressure “muscle testing”. I check for the possible causes be they structural, biochemical (e.g. nutritional deficiencies, intolerances), emotional or energetic (e.g. dehydration). For example if you have bloating, wind or gut issues and you’ve changed your diet but are still having symptoms, there could be an underlying issue e.g. a yeast infection or bacteria, that diet alone is not addressing. I will then advise whether supplements are advisable and I may massage lymphatic points and/or make structural corrections.

As well as Kinesiology I work within Nutritional Therapy, where I use food and dietary interventions to support and promote health and wellbeing. I also use my Kinesiology skills as this can provide a clearer direction to the root cause. Nutritional Therapy recognises the crucial role that nutrition plays in maintaining optimal health, preventing disease, and managing various health conditions. It is client centric, what works for one person may not suit another.

Following an assessment, I develop a customised plan that may include dietary modifications, supplementation recommendations, and lifestyle changes. The plan takes into account your own unique nutritional requirements, preferences, and any existing health conditions or concerns, medications or intolerances.
