I created The Balanced Performer because I healed myself naturally and I want to give you hope if you are suffering too.
By the age age of 25 I was suffering with:
- over active thyroid
- 3rd stage adrenal fatigue
- malfunctioning kidneys
- liver condition
- chronic IBS
- severe anxiety and panic attacks
As you can imagine I was not feeling great. In fact, simply getting out of bed in the morning was the hardest thing in the world. I felt hungover every morning, yet I didn't drink. I couldn't look at a piece of cake without bloating and my mood fluctuated so dramatically from high, happy and full of life to low, depressed and anxious. I woke up almost every morning with a headache and I couldn't concentrate on any task for more than ten minutes. Anxiety attacks plagued me so badly that at one point I couldn't leave my flat.
During this time I filmed a leading role in a prime time E4 TV series, auditioned for the West End, held down a teaching job, toured the UK in an Opera playing the leading role, rehearsed, toured, performed and recorded in a successful band and played a leading role at the Edinburgh Fringe. I was experiencing all these amazing things in my career but I was a mess. On the surface I was getting on with life, a smile on my face, but looking back I was in hell. But hell felt normal.
I had no idea how to eat, sleep, de-stress or how to take care of myself in anyway. I didn't have a clue how any of past had affected me. And I wasn't aware that the past could have any impact on me emotionally (crazy huh?!)
Training at some of the worlds top conservatoires for classical music, acting and singing had certainly made me a great musician and performer, but it had not prepared me for the financial difficulties, the emotional stress, pressure, fatigue and the general dramatic impact on my mind, body and spirit. I was was a hard working, high achieving performer, with a barely working, underachieving, disconnected mind, body and spirit.
Something had to change.
My partner at the time, a man who I will remain deeply thankful to for the rest of my life, referred me to a Kinesiologist. "A Kinesi-WHAT?!" I exclaimed. "Just go... you'll love it". I had always been into energy medicine and had a fascination with alternative methods of healing but had never pursued anything in that world. Like most people I waited until the last moment of feeling horrid to take any action. Kinesiology sounded exciting, but unbelievable. However, even before I knew what it was, it gave me a sparkle of hope.
I'm going to cut a long story short. Kinesiology healed me completely. 100%.
Using the amazing language of muscle testing, the Kinesiologist 'spoke' to the innate wisdom of my body to find out exactly what was going and what it needed to heal. I remember when she first touched me to perform the first muscle test to access my adrenal health information I burst into uncontrollable sobs. For the first time I felt I was about to get some answers as to why I had been feeling this way for so long. Even in this state my miracle of a body was still able to provide the answers. Throughout the session this amazing woman continued to find out information from my nervous, hormonal, organ and energy systems. I left with a batch of herbs, tinctures, vitamins and remedies to order and some instructions on dietary and lifestyle changes. I continued to see her every six weeks.
Fast forward six months and I was transformed. Everyone could see it. I was happier with more energy, boosted confidence, better sleep and just generally felt clean and fresh and in love with life.
I became obsessed with learning as much as I could about what this woman had done to me in that clinic. I was astounded that it was possible to discover information about the body in that much detail. Detail that doctors wouldn't be able to discover and that wouldn't show up in blood tests or scans. This was subtle energy medicine discovering sub-clinical information about the mind, body and spirit.
Far fetched? Yup! It is... So far fetched that I delved into finding out as much as I could about it. What I learned has changed my life in the most deeply profound way that it is impossible to put here in words.
I decided to train as a Kinesiologist. I became passionate about spreading the message that there is hope if you are suffering. I want you to know that your birth given right is to feel happy, healthy, energised and free from disease. So many of us just deal with it, accept it, or get on with it. It doesn't need to be like this.
Your body NEVER attacks itself. Your body never turns on itself. Your body is the most complex creation on the planet and its fundamental design feature is that it cleanses, fixes and heals ALWAYS. You body is always doing what it thinks is right. The problem is that the body is not evolved to deal with the modern world. There is so much around us that is working against the natural way the body functions.
Kinesiology gives you the support and the answers you have as to what is imbalanced and what is required to come back into balance. Your body speaks and Kinesiology is its language.

Your body has one job - to cleanse and heal. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. Your body is one big detoxing, healing, fixing, regenerating mechanism. It's a miracle.
Sometimes, as with all mechanics, things can go a little off kilter. We've all felt it; bloating, headaches, fatigue, rashes, dizziness. The list goes on. Something has fallen out of balance.
Holistic and natural medicine cuts out the guess work and gets straight to the root cause of your condition, aiming to rebalance the mind, body, emotions and spirit in order for deep transformational healing to take place.
Your body is far more complex than we will ever know in our life time. It must be addressed from many different angles to support its natural healing processes.
