Welcome to Lisa McGuinness Kinesiology, nestled in the heart of Mount Hawthorn, Perth, I am here to support your journey to health & wellness. My background prior to kinesiology was (and still is) in alternative education with "at risk" young people as well as working in education remotely in WA with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as well as in homelessness in community services. It was during a stint in Geraldton in 2015 that I tried kinesiology to assist allergic reactions (eventually pinpointed to a combination of a stressful environment and toxicity overload). Although I had no clue how it worked and it was pretty weird, it resonated and it worked! Plagued with random hives and swelling lips unable to pinpointed to one specific thing since 2011, after approximately 6-8 sessions in 2015 targeting adrenal stress and supporting the immune system, it didn't happen again (for a day) until 2022 during a bout of Covid when I was pretty sick, which was pretty good mileage! Fascinated and with a yearning to know more about how this modality worked I began studying kinesiology in 2016. I have a passion for supporting people of all ages with all ailments and issues from anxiety to physical pain to alleviate stress so the body can repair and heal itself. A relatively recent passion for fitness has focused a new desire to support people with performance, recovery from training and optimisation so they can move freely in their body and achieve their dreams! With a passion (or obsession) for continual learning, I am always upskilling and learning more from inspirational practitioners who are experts in their fields across the mental, emotional and physical. Following the work of Dr Gabor Mate "When the Body Says No - The Hidden Cost of Stress" highlights that scientific research is catching up with ancient Eastern philosophy and reaffirms daily that the glorification of the "busy" western lifestyle comes at a perishing cost.
I believe that as humans, our natural state is one of utter joy and to feel at ease as we move in our bodies. This is not to say that we don’t feel all the other emotions, this is healthy and important! But so is returning to our baseline state, which I believe is joy. When we are out of alignment that feels impossible - I know because I’ve been there and have scoffed at this kind of babble before - your body knows how to feel that joy, we just need to listen. It is my mission to support as many people as possible to remember that innate joy that resides within. To remember their brilliance so their body can heal itself.
“Then what is the relationship between something that you do and the state of joy?
You will enjoy any activity in which you are fully present, any activity that is not just a means to an end. It isn’t the action you perform that you really enjoy, but the deep sense of aliveness that flows into it. That aliveness is one with who you are.”
