Most people have 1-3 sessions depending on their issue or complaint. If there’s an issue or problem that you’ve had for a while, its usually takes a couple of sessions to get to the origin of the problem. People seem to notice a huge shift in the first session and the follow up sessions help to consolidate the work. You could also use the three sessions whenever you feel out of balance or want to achieve a new goal.
Find Your Posture
Are you aware of your body’s strengths and weaknesses? We all have them, and understanding why they are and especially how to transform them takes time.
Unfortunately, for those of us who tend toward misalignment, this can lead to aches and pains, patterns of muscle weakness, and altered patterns of movement.
Kinesiology is an academic discipline that involves the study of physical activity and its
impact on health, society, and quality of life (UBC Kinesiology Program).
Kinesiology has been broadly defined by the BC Association of Kinesiology as the scientific study of human movement, performance, and function, and applies the sciences of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and motor learning (neuroscience). Kinesiologists utilize science-based approaches, research, and assessment to aid in the enhancement of human performance and to assist in the prevention or rehabilitation of injury and other physiological conditions.

KINESIOLOGY INFORMED CONSENT
Informed consent is the process by which a treating kinesiologist discloses appropriate information to a competent person, so the person may make a voluntary choice to accept or refuse treatment and disclose or share information related to treatment. Informed consent is an ongoing process and not something that is simply agreed to prior to assessment or treatment.
Kinesiologists who make recommendations or decisions regarding a specific person’s wellbeing, whether providing medical or non-medical based exercise prescription, disability management, workspace ergonomics, return to work planning, medical bracing/biomechanical supports, research, etc., must obtain Informed Consent prior to affecting the persons’ wellbeing.
Your head should be above your shoulders, and the top of your shoulder should be over the hips. In an ideal posture, the line of gravity should pass through specific points of the body. This can simply be observed or evaluated using a plumb line to assess the midline of the body.
MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE CARE DISCLAIMER
If a minor and their guardian decline assessment or treatment which is deemed necessary by at least 2 medical doctors the case should be referred to the BC Ministry of Children and Family Services.
If an adult who has capacity declines care after the benefits and risks have been appropriately explained and the benefits far outweigh the risks, you must respect the decision.
If an adult is incapacitated and unable to provide informed consent but demands treatment, you must decline until the individual has the capacity to make informed decisions.
