Benefits of Kinesiology

Kinesiology does not seek simply to alleviate symptoms. True health is not just absence of disease - it is consistent energy, mental clarity, resistance to stress, freedom from infection, emotional stability, good physical stamina, as well as the absence of disease. The symptom is NOT the problem but merely a "messenger", communicating that imbalances are present.


Kinesiology can help you if you are experiencing any of the following "messengers"/symptoms:

  • Headaches/migraines

  • Depression

  • Learning difficulties

  • Behavioural difficulties

  • EMF sensitivity

  • Neck/back pain

  • Insomnia

  • Low blood sugar

  • Sinusitis/allergic problems

  • Recurrent infections

  • Fatigue syndromes

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Low self esteem

  • Phobias/addictions

  • Skin problems

  • Digestive disorders

  • Menstrual problems

  • Constipation

  • and more!


Clients have had the following results:
  • More energy

  • Greater understanding of self and others

  • Choices where none seemed to exist before

  • Acceptance and understanding of others

  • Have found solutions where none existed before

  • More appropriate and increased functioning ability in all areas of life

  • Improved quality of life

  • More appropriate reactions in stressful environments

  • Improved coping ability

  • Empowering of self

  • Integration of facets of self


Specialised Kinesiologist do NOT:
  • Claim to heal - only your body can do that, just as it heals a broken bone or a cut. Kinesiology accelerates the healing process.

  • Diagnose, treat, or suggest that you go off any prescribed medication - we acknowledge the symptom and work towards solutions

  • Work with illness as that would be treating the symptom - we believe that we can assist in improving your quality of life and so "re-educate" your body and your self

  • Interfere with your faith or religious beliefs - we are trained to work within the realm of your belief system to best assist you to find solutions

  • Make predictions

What Ian's Clients say

"Personal Best's Ian Waddell is my first port of call for physical and mental AND emotional health needs. He has vast knowledge and training in a variety of healing disciplines and the results are amazing. I bring my kids to Ian, myself and my hubby, for anything from back pain, stress, where to go next in life, or any physical unexplained disorder that the doctors can't figure out. He is a master at his craft of healing your body. I highly recommend Ian, and if you have never been to a kinesiologist, reiki practioner or alternative healer or are in any way skeptical, but can't get ontop of your health issues, you should definitely get a treatment from Ian Waddell. Thanks Ian, your greatful patient :-)"

"Working with you in the balancing sessions has brings me clarity and a sense of better being able to deal with what is happening within me and around me - my head and heart space to be able to understand from a place of peace - which is what I get when coming to the sessions.  I am able to move forward in the knowing that all is as it should be, and having the affirmations and goals that we set-up truly assists me and keeps me focused and in balance.  Your energy and gentle wisdom always brings an insight and a different way of looking at an issue.  Thank you."

"I have been for treatments with Ian and found that his approach and knowledge of kinesiology was of a high standard.  His ability to explain the concept and talk you through the sessions is done in a way to make you feel relaxed and fills you with knowledge and understanding on how various aspects of our busy lives effects in ways that we have no idea.I have recommended clients to Ian and will have treatments from him in the future.  It is great to see a male in this field that has so much understanding"

"I have being suffering from shin splints for a while, to the point where they are so painful I am barely able to walk after a run. I got to a place where I actually thought about giving up running! I see Ian twice a week for personal training, and he offered to treat my splints. After 3 sessions with him, of deep massaging/treatment for after,  and recommending that I replace my running shoes (I was not wearing the correct ones), I can officially say I have had no further pain! I run about 3 times a week, about 5 to 10 km’s and I did a 10km on Saturday, 04/12 out at Lourensford Wine Estate (off road), where I pushed myself much harder, and attempted a rather steep hill, and my shins were absolutely fine! In fact, my legs actually felt a lot stronger. I can definitely recommend Ian’s treatment to any runner/sportsman who suffer from shin splints. Once again Ian, thank you very much! I am now a happy runner :)"

“Ian has added to his quiver of competencies with Posture Therapy balancing.  For a number of months now he has been doing posture therapy balancing as part of my gym routine, adjusting the wedges in my shoes as necessary.  This balancing and adjustment of the wedges has been very beneficial in reducing the incidence and severity of the pain on the inside of my knees (i.e. not ITB) and the small of my back, particularly after participating in road races.”
