Office Workers:
Making Biokinetics lessons available for your office staff will help reduce stress and improve general health. Many occupations require long hours spent in one position, such as sitting at a computer. Biokinetics will help reduce the resulting postural problems, bad backs and other body pain. The cost of this sort of preventative work will be more than offset by reductions in absenteeism resulting from illness and injury.

Any serious athlete will tell you that he/she has the following wish list:

  • To suffer fewer injuries
  • To recover from injuries faster and more thoroughly
  • To recover from training sessions faster
  • To have better flexibility
  • To have better body awareness and ability to improve technique
  • To have stronger ligaments and tendons
  • To have a stronger immune system

Regular practice of Biokinetics can give all these benefits. The gentle movements and stretches release muscular knots, preventing minor injuries getting any worse and encouraging the body's natural healing process to work optimally.
They also massage the muscles and other soft tissue in a way that extends to the deepest levels, causing the toxins that result from heavy training to be drained quickly away via the lymphatic system.
The Biokinetics movements work the body's acupuncture meridians increasing the flow of energy so that each training session can be performed with the highest quality.

Biokinetics engages the ligaments and tendons, helping to strengthen and elongate them.
Regular practice of Biokinetics requires the body and mind to work together. A knock on effect of this is improved body awareness generally. Thus it will be easier for the athlete to modify his/her technique to improve performance.
After a Biokinetics session, you will feel more relaxed, looser, energised and have better posture. In this state, your body is better able to look after itself. This means less training time lost to colds and other illnesses.

Its like being your own masseur, acupuncturist and osteopath rolled into one!

Specific Complaints:
Biokinetics has been used to help people suffering from a broad range of complaints, many of them seemingly chronic.

Regular practise of the system has been shown to:

  • Release muscular tension
  • Improve digestion and treat IBS
  • Restore joint mobility
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Speed the healing of injuries
  • Improve posture
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Improve cardiovascular circulation
  • Improve mental concentration
  • Improve mental concentration
  • Improve quality of sleep and treat insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Treat chronic tiredness
  • Treat post viral fatigue syndrome
  • Release blocks within the acupuncture meridians and re-establish the flow of chi

It also provides an excellent maintenance program for staying healthy. The movements are simple to learn, do not require any equipment and are all done standing up. They can be done anywhere.

The reason that Biokinetics is so powerful is that it takes the body/mind to a state where its natural healing powers can work.
We will often adapt our posture and state of mind in response to external stresses and traumas. These adaptations remain even when the stress is no longer there. An example is muscle spasms which protect an injured area, but remain after the injury has healed. Biokinetics is very efficient at returning the body to a neutral, stress free state so that it can work harmoniously again.
