Posted by on March 7, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Understanding The Four Elementary Dimensions of Natural Wellness

Wellness is described as a lively process of getting aware of your health needs and making decisions towards a satisfying life. Wellness matters because sustaining a fine level of wellness is important towards living a better life. It also matters because almost everything you do, including the emotions you feel, relates to your well-being. This affects your actions and emotions in turn. The five basic wellness dimensions are explained below: Emotional wellness This involves getting aware of and accepting one’s feelings. It includes the extent to which one feels positive and passionate about one’s self. It also involves having the ability to manage one’s feelings and all the related behaviours including assessing one’s limits plus the ability to deal with stress. The positivity of this dimension is that you will have the capability to freely express your feelings while managing them effectively. Therefore, it is better to be aware of and acknowledge our feelings than to rebuff them. Intellectual wellness This dimension recognizes one’s resourcefulness that simulate the mental activities. A well person has the ability to value logical growth and intellectuality by using the rational activities in and beyond the classroom in addition to the human and learning resources that are made available within and outside the source of knowledge, i.e. a university. For that reason, it is better to test your mind with intellectual and creative pursuits than to become proud and unproductive. Spiritual wellness The spiritual dimension recognizes your quest for a meaning in life and the purpose in human presence. This comprises the development of a deep appreciation for the vastness of life and the spiritual powers that are presumed to exist in the universe. The quest for life’s meaning is characterized by a peaceful accord between the internal feelings and emotions through the jagged stretches of your life’s pathway. As a result, it is better to live each day at a time in a way that is steady with your principles and beliefs rather than feeling untrue to yourself. Physical wellness This is where the need for regular physical activity is acknowledged. This dimension encourages knowing about proper diet and healthy nutrition while avoiding unclean substances like tobacco, drugs and over drinking alcohol.Ideal wellness is attained through good eating habits and keeping physically fit through exercises. Therefore, it is better to be physically fit while consuming good food to enhance good health rather than impairing it. You need to know that each wellness dimension correlates well with the other. For that reason, they are all equally important in the quest for the finest health. You can reach the prime level of wellness by knowing how to maintain and enhance each dimension of wellness in your life as explained in this...

Physiotherapy for Knee Pain

Posted by on July 15, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Physiotherapy for Knee Pain

Do you experience knee pain, and the pain is so bad that over-the-counter medications just aren’t helping any longer? If so, your doctor may recommend that you have physiotherapy as opposed to a surgical procedure. If you have never had physiotherapy before, you may be wondering what to expect, especially during the first visit. The first thing that the physiotherapist is going to do is ask about your medical history, particularly the history of your knee pain, what aggravates the pain, what relieves it, etc. Then, the actual physical examination will begin. Even though you have already seen a doctor, the physiotherapist still needs to diagnose the problem themselves before coming up with the best course of treatment. Some aspects of the examination may include: Evaluation of How You Walk The therapist will get you to walk around the room so they can see how you walk. They can notice the tiniest changes in the knee when it is in motion, and will be able to see if you are limping, the position of the knee when you walk, etc. In many cases, the pain is not actually caused by a problem with the knee, and originates in the feet. They will be able to tell when they watch you walk if there are problems with your feet that could be causing the knee pain, and may even recommend prosthetic devices (arch supports or special shoes) to correct the problem. Range of Motion Testing The physiotherapist will also look at your range of motion, or how far you can bend your knee. They will have you bend and straighten your leg, and use special tools to measure the range of motion. Throughout your treatment, the range of motion will be tested, and these tools will show if there is any improvement in motion. Measuring Muscle Strength Often, knee pain that is not caused by an injury is actually caused by muscle problems. The physiotherapist will measure the strength in your knee to decide if you are going to need special exercises and therapies that will help to improve the muscle strength. Measuring Swelling If there is swelling associated with your knee pain, the therapist will often measure the amount of swelling, both in the first visit and throughout your treatment. If there is swelling, they will often recommend ice treatments to go along with other physiotherapy treatments, as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications. Contact a company like Pro-Fit Physio & Allied Health Centre to learn...

What Is Systematic Kinesiology?

Posted by on March 30, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You may have heard of kinesiology as a natural health care technique developed to aid healing through working on the body’s muscles. But what is systematic kinesiology, and can it work for you? What is systematic kinesiology? Systematic kinesiology is a holistic therapy that allows the practitioner to find out more about your overall health by reading your body’s bio-feedback system via muscle testing. The muscle response changes in response to variable factors introduced by the practitioner, rather like a switch. The systematic kinesiologist then uses this information, together with the client’s feedback, to work out a recovery plan. The muscle can then be re-tested at your future consultations and the plan adjusted accordingly.    What will happen at your first kinesiology consultation? The session will begin with a discussion about your current health. The kinesiologist will then ask you for details about your medical history and your lifestyle. Based on the information provided, your practitioner will begin by carrying out a number of muscle tests.  Your arms, legs or head will be placed into specific positions by the kinesiologist who will then apply a gentle pressure to each muscle that is being tested. They are looking for any subtle imbalances, rather than assessing your physical strength. Through testing the muscles the practitioner will draw information and bio-feedback from your body.  The body builds imbalances in a particular order. It therefore follows that kinesiology techniques must be applied in a certain direction in order to address those imbalances effectively. Muscle testing allows the practitioner to establish the order in which they will need to restore any imbalances. Generally, once the main imbalance is corrected any other problems will simultaneously resolve themselves. Your recovery plan may involve some lifestyle changes, the application of relaxation techniques or meditation, and possibly the inclusion of some nutritional supplements in your diet. How many consultations will you need? Initially, you will probably need three to six consultations. After this you might need to have a couple of routine follow-ups during a twelve-month period. The speed of your recovery and the benefits you see will depend on how fully you have engaged with the plan suggested to you by your practitioner, and on your own particular physical problems. Systematic kinesiology offers a natural health care solution to many physical problems through a drug-free regimen involving non-invasive gentle hands-on therapy. Have a chat with a kinesiologist at your local natural health care clinic like Ayira Pty Ltd for more information, and to see how you could benefit from this natural healing...
