Mala has been involved with movement and natural therapies for over forty years. Teaching creative movement and dance for 15years led on to the exploration of and training in many modalities of therapy and bodywork.
This love of assisting people to find freedom of movement and expression is a core thread of her work as a Kinesiologist. This sometimes means working with children or adults with learning or co-ordination difficulties, assisting people to deal with stress or pain, helping negotiate life stage transitions, clarifying goals, and developing and strengthening strategies and neural networks to enhance learning and performance.
In a kinesiology session Mala works together with you, to find out through muscle testing, observation and dialogue, the ways in which your goals and process are being undermined by stress, whether this be due to structural, emotional, or nutritional imbalances. She draws on a variety of techniques to ease the stress, restore balance, develop strength, flexibility and maturity, and to open up more possibilities and strategies for achieving your goals. “By tuning into the body’s wisdom we assist your own self healing abilities to be restored and strengthened.”
As well as working in her clinic and teaching Kinesiology, Mala has a keen interest in photography and a love of image, metaphor, light, shade and colour. She has also discovered a love of singing and the voice and enjoys using her kinesiology skills to enhance vocal freedom.
Mala has a clinic in Te Atatu and also teaches classes and workshops. Apart from those advertised, other classes, workshops, and dates can sometimes be arranged to suit the needs of particular groups. Please enquire.
