Kinesiology Clinic

Nutritional and Educational Kinesiology – Rosaleen Durkin’s kinesiology clinics for children and adults use muscle bio-feedback to test for common food sensitivities (dairy, gluten, wheat, sugar, eggs, tomatoes, etc.) and to detect and correct mineral and nutritional imbalances in the body. 

Kinesiology can provide help with tiredness, skin conditions and sleeping, anxiety, digestive and concentration problems.  Many more conditions in children and adults with learning difficulties (AD/HD, dyslexia, Asperger’s Syndrome) can also be treated.
