Kinesiology for Children

Kinesiology is a gentle healing modality which gets to the bottom of challenging behaviours, learning difficulties and emotional stress. As an experienced kinesiologist, former primary teacher and mother of two small boys, I understand children and the sorts of challenges they experience on a day to day basis.

I am now available for appointments on Thursdays and Fridays – in person (in Thora) and online (via Skype or remote sessions)

For more information or to book in, please call Lara on 0402 566 092
