ADD/ADHD

kinesiology perthConnor was often out of control. He had no friends and was even disliked and judged by his teachers. After five sessions of Brain Gym with Lee-Anne, I finally had hope and glimpses of the ‘real boy’ I knew my ten year old son is. * We were able to have conversations where he didn’t always act out and blame everyone else. * He was able to concentrate at school, make friends with the ‘nicer boys’ and settled well into his footy team as a team player. *

After ten sessions, Connor’s confidence was high, he making and maintaining his friendships with, reading, writing and finally enjoying learning.  He is now a different child.

I am so proud of his changes and the boy he’s becoming.  We thank Lee-Anne every day for helping switch our boy on and creating the opportunity for us to ‘find our son.’

Bi-Polar & Diabetes

kinesiology perth“I’m stable enough now to manage my Bi-Polar without medication. I’m comfortably controlling my Diabetes, with minimal effort.  This was not the case six months ago. I’m a 44 year old male with a number of health problems.

 

I was a very ill man who had severe Bi-Polar mood swings, wasn’t able to hold down a job for more than a week, have never had a stable relationship, had regular hospitalisations and was still living at home with my parents.

 

I know that I’m not stupid. I just wasn’t able to take control of my life for more than a few days at a time.  My sessions began with Lee-Anne and within a week, I was sable for four days, then the next week this extended to five.  within a month, I’d nervously applied for a job that I was able to be functional in for a month longer than any other.  I met a really nice girl and was able to not ‘go high’ and blow it out of the water like before in just a couple of days.

 

Six months after treatment began, I’m still working at the same place, out performing some of my colleagues and still have the same girl friend.  I’m thinking of buying my own home unit and if I continue to do well, I’ll be moving in and for the first time in my 43 years, will be healthy and independent.  I’ve begun studying IT at TAFE at night and enjoying using my mind too.  My parents and family have noticed large differences and are proud of me in a way that I haven’t experienced for a very long time.

 

I could never have dreamed or believed that I could do so well when conventional medicine and traditional therapies couldn’t help me.

 

I am very grateful to Lee-Anne for her amasing understanding of who I am and what I need to ‘buy back my life’.”

“My experience of Lee-Anne Macleod’s teaching within our school was inspiring.  Her delivery was personal, fun and tailor made to suit our ‘small town school’ community. She taught us Brain Gym 101 adapting as she went to our many questions with the passion of an experienced teacher who knows how to work with teacher’s, children and parents in the most efficient, effective and fun manner.  I would highly recommend this gifted teacher to any school, parent or student.

Dyslexia Plus, Plus, Plus

kinesiology perthOur son is so much more confident and this is changing all our lives around him positively! At our last session, we are delighted to report that there are no longer any signs of his Dyslexia!

 

When we met Lee Anne a year ago, our son had been diagnosed with Dyslexia for 2 years. We had moved to Australia the year before, partly because we knew there are good Dyslexia programs here. This had helped to some extent, but our son was still not settling in well at school; partly because he lacked self confidence in class with his new class mates (quite often hanging out with his younger brother’s friends), and partly because he was struggling to learn the reading and spelling of English words, even though he did have good English comprehension. After he had set for a battery of tests, his eye-blinking got so bad that he regularly bumped into items at home; this led us to a referral to Lee Anne by our local Doctor, GP.

 

What he’s learnt over the past year from Lee Anne:

  • To enjoy drinking water
  • To focus on the positive things he can achieve
  • To stimulate his brain
  • To relax his muscles
  • To relax and focus when doing any tests at school
  • To read, write and express himself in English accurately and easily
  • To do maths competently and without anxiety

 

He is now a much more confident and happier boy. He has made a good friend at school and has a group of class mates he hangs out with during break time. His reading and spelling has much improved. He has enjoyed reading his first book by himself just a few months ago. In maths he is now in the top group of his class. In the weekends he enjoys playing hockey and soccer in a relaxed mood and has fun. His eye blinking stopped almost straight away and no longer bumps into things.

 

We are very proud of what he has achieved in the last year. Certainly, our bi-weekly visits to Lee Anne have significantly contributed to his progress. We are confident that his new look on life will stand him in good stead for a long time to come.

 

Again, thanks for all your help so far. Our son is so much more confident and this is changing all our lives around him in a positive sense!!!

 

At our last session, we are delighted to report that there are no longer

any signs of his Dyslexia!

Elite Performance - TEE marks + 30%

kinesiology perth

  1. Swimming time improved 30% – Study Exam marks improved 30%

  2. Physiotherapist’s shoulder fixed in five minutes.

————————————

*Jo, is a top National swimmer. He was having great difficulty focusing on his study, had large anxieties about not achieving and was failing exams. Even though he’d just won a National swimming title, he was constantly injured, always exhausted and no longer enjoying his sport, school or social life. He was depressed and considered in the ‘at risk’ adolescent group by the school psychologist, lacking motivation for anything even socially. He felt that his only option was to ‘give up’ his studies even though he was a very capable and intelligent person.

We concentrated on turning Jo’s self esteem and school studies around first. We knew that the renewed success here would also increase his happiness and motivation in the pool. After a few sessions, we’d cleared a lot of the emotional and neurological ‘blocks’. He began to feel more confident in all areas of school as the anxiety reduced and marks lifted. We continued working and it wasn’t long before he was feeling happy, motivated and succeeding academically again.

We began to look at and work on his swimming strokes. It was obvious that he was losing power in the last 30% of all his strokes. The same ‘lost’ 30%’ and ‘completion’ pattern that we’d discovered in other areas of his life. In one session, we corrected two strokes and Jo’s times instantly improved 30% in the pool. (His coach drug tested him, not believing his sudden speed increase, energy and relaxed smile.) NOTE: Stress restricted the full function of his ‘power’ muscles. This was simply ‘re-patterned and restored!

This young man is now feeling happy, self confident, achieving highly with his school studies, swimming and all other areas of his life. The missing 30% ‘patterned’ in his subconscious mind was like a failure ‘switch’ that was hidden and uncontrollable.
*(Name changed to Jo to protect his public profile)

This is not an uncommon story in my clinic. Often we have destructive unconscious patterns of stress, that keep repeating themselves. We become frustrated, lose efficiency, often resulting in poor communication, relationship problems or break down and failure in other areas of our lives. Many Learning difficulties and stresses in our worlds can be simply discovered and removed leaving us free to be relaxed, successfully, happy, have great relationships and to enjoy our gifts.

 

  1. *This young man ‘s name has been kept private due to his qualifying at the Olympic level… He has given permission to use his story with the wish that it will motivate other elite athletes to never give up.

“ Injuries that don’t fully heal cause many talented athletes to give up their careers.

With Lee-Anne’s special ‘rewiring’ techniques, this needn’t happen.

 

I bring a Brain Damaged client personally to see Lee-Anne fortnightly with unbelievable results. At the end of one sessions I was rubbing my shoulder and Lee-Anne offered to have a look.  It was a frustrating weakness that hadn’t healed properly for a number of years and I held back from competing at the level of football that I was capable.

She told me that through a traumatic injury to my shoulder that my brain had set up a ‘reactive loop’, to protect my body from further damage and my brain didn’t know how to ‘reset the circuits. I could feel my muscles suddenly strengthening up and my flexibility returning almost instantly. In five minutes that we had, my should felt heaps better.  Two months later, I haven’t had any further problems with my shoulder, it’s back to it’s old strength and I’m playing confidently and enjoying my game again.

 

I’m always well supported by Lee-Anne during my brain damaged clients session, where she teaches and expands my way of thinking about injuries and how looking for the root cause rather than just treating symptoms has profound and long lasting effects.  My physiotherapy has changed forever.”

Harrison’s Story - The Perfect Child

kinesiology perth

“Before Brain Gym, I saw the world as critical of me. Now I see the world like it’s my friend.” (See below)

“Wow. Harrison would never take a risk. He was so nervous about making mistakes, unhappy and constantly fearful. He had a tough entry to the world and we feel he has struggled ever since. Painfully we watched helplessly as nothing we tried worked. We now celebrate his achievements and risk taking on a daily basis. We as a family, have had a huge weight taken off our shoulders, our stress has dropped to such a degree that people tell me I look ten years younger. Now that was stress.

We are now all sleeping better and healthier. All aspects of Harrisons life have changed for the better. It’s like a miracle.

We celebrate Harrison now being a real little boy and we are no longer fearful for his future.

The world has certainly opened up for Harrison. His eyes give him away. They show a sparkle that has been missing.

Harrison now sees the world as his playground for fun and adventure nd is no longer afraid.

We look at our recent holiday photos and we see genuine happiness and a care free child, just as it should be. Harrison has learnt the importance of being a child.

For all these achievements both the big and small, yes, even the ‘cheeky’, we thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Harrison is certainly spreading his wings in the most beautiful and positive way. Thank you!”

T. Elkins, Canning Vale Western Australia (see more below)

 

Harrison: “On my first session with Lee-Anne, I couldn’t write on normal paper. Then on the next session I could!

To start, I felt as though everything had to be perfect. Now I feel like everything is not as perfect and that is OK.

Before Lee-Anne, I would not of trusted my Mum and Dad about things. Now I can trust my Mum and Dad.

Before this I wouldn’t taken safe risks. Before Brain Gym, I saw the world like it was so critical of me. Now I see the world like I’m it’s friend.

Lee-Anne helps me feel emotions, happy, sad, tired and teary.

I’m glad that I found Lee-Anne, whose helped me discover the world and make it less scary.”

Parkinson’s Disease - Wheel Chair To Dancing. - A 7 Year Case Study

kinesiology perth“After suffering from Parkinson’s Disease for I5 years I was in a wheel chair and accustomed to being this way for the rest of my life, when I begun a ‘miraculous’ healing journey with Kinesiologic healing techniques and movements ….

 

During the New Year’s Eve Ball, I was inspired by the ambience & romance of the evening and stepped into the dance floor to dance with my wife & members of my family for several hours, including dancing to hectic & exciting music of the Beetles & Latin American, without my wheel chair or walking sticks !!  What an enchanting evening.  Many thanks Lee-Anne.”

PARKINSON DISEASE
By Lee-Anne MacLeod
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, degenerative, non-fatal neurological condition, which affects the control of body movements. It is not contagious and there is no firm evidence to suggest that it is a genetic condition. Symptoms result from the progressive degeneration of neuronal (nerve) cells located in the substantia nigra (middle area of the brain). This causes a deficiency in dopamine a chemical neurotransmitter (messenger) necessary for smooth, controlled movements. The symptoms of Parkinson’s appear when about 70 per cent of the dopamine-producing cells in the body cease to function normally.

 

The Basal Ganglia, in the caudate nucleus, are neurons that liberate the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh).  Although the level of ACh does not change as the level of Dopamine (DA) declines, the imbalance of neurotransmitter activity  » too little DA and too much Ach, is thought to bring about most of the symptoms.

 

Symptoms that may be assisted with Kinesiology & Brain Gym®

 

  • Muscle Rigidity and Tension
  • Tremors
  • Motor Movements   »  Fine& Gross
  • Poor Concentration & Memory
  • Speech, Communication and swallowing problems.
  • Vision – Poor tracking  »  Reading becomes difficult
  • Coordination and Balance
  • Anxiety and Stress levels   »  Depression   »   Dementia
  • Positive Thinking and Self Esteem
  • Energy levels, Overall well-being
  • Freezing leg movements, coupled with the “run away“ body
  • Illegible Hand Writing
  • Proprioceptions

 

Some Kinesiologic Techniques Assisting with Symptoms

 

Water

Water is vital at all times, but even more so when brain function is reduced due to disease.

Brain Gym®

  • Brain Buttons to aid blood & Oxygen supply to the brain.  Supports smooth eye teaming and tracking
  • Earth & Space Buttons aids brain /body connection – centring, bodies orientation in space & circulation of Cerebral Spinal Fluid
  • Cross Crawl – sitting or standing. Brain communication between right & left hemispheres supporting brain/body co-ordination
  • Hook-ups settles anxiety and aids with memory, thought processing and problem solving
  • Thinking Caps helps with auditory processing and switches on listening / hearing abilities
  • Core Activation – gently right, left hemisphere communication, improving proprioperception, coordination and balance.
  • Lengthening Movements – Calf Activation, Calf Pump, Arm Activation with facilitated passive support.

Vision Gym™ (Visioncircles movements)

  • Bracelets increase blood and lymph circulation, increases mobility and reduces pain to hands, arms, feet and legs
  • The Three Pumps increase lymph circulation, body flexibility aiding with reducing muscle ‘rigidity’
  • Wake-Ups Points increase blood circulation to facial muscles while relaxing vision and clarity

General Kinesiology

  • Lymphatic Massage increase lymph flow with improved health while reducing muscular pain and ‘rigidity’
  • Spinal Reflexes help stimulate the Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems

OPEN DAY CONFERENCE – 6 MAY 2006

 

The cause, but are suspected, inpart because only patients have a family history of the disease. that extend from the substantia nigra to the basalganglia, where they release the neurotransmitter dopamine (DA),

degenerate in PD.  Also in the Basla Ganglia, in the caudate nucleus, are neurons that liberate the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh).  Although the level of ACh does not change as the level of DA declines, the imbalance of neurotransmitter activity – too little DA and too much ACh – is thought to bring about most of the symptoms.

 

In PD patients, involuntary skeletal muscle contractions often interfere with voluntary movement.  For instance, the muscles of the upper limb may alternately contract and relax, causing the hand to shake.

 

This shaking, called ”tremor’, is the most common sympton of PD.  Aolso, muscle tone may increase greatly causing rigidity of the involved body part.  Rigidity of the facial muscles gives the face a mashlikeapprearance.

 

the expression is characterized by wide-eyed, unblinking stare and a slightly open mouth with uncontrolled drooping.

 

Motor performance is also impaired by ‘bradykinesia’ (brady = slow), in which activities such as shaving, cutting food and buttoning a shirt take longer and become increasingly more difficulty as the disease progresses.  Muscular movements are performed not only slowly but with decreasing range of motion, or ‘hypokinesia’ (hypo = under).  Fro example, handwritten letters get smaller, become poorly formed and eventually become illeggible.   Often, walking becomes too difficult and patients are confined to a wheel chair and then eventually bed with severe body pain, cramps, loss of language and then eventually the  immune systems become so week that death follows from varied causes.

 

Parkinson’s disease explained

 

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, degenerative, non-fatal neurological condition, which affects the control of body movements. It is not contagious and there is no firm evidence to suggest that it is a genetic condition. Symptoms result from the progressive degeneration of neuronal (nerve) cells located in the substantia nigra (middle area of the brain). This causes a deficiency in dopamine a chemical neurotransmitter (messenger) necessary for smooth, controlled movements. The symptoms of Parkinson’s appear when about 70 per cent of the dopamine-producing cells in the body cease to function normally.

 

A common disease

 

It is estimated that approximately one to two people per 1,000 of the population have Parkinson’s, with the incidence increasing to one in 100 over the age of 60 years. In Australia, there are approximately 40,000 people with Parkinson’s disease, with one in seven sufferers being diagnosed before the age of 50 years. Approximately 500 new cases are diagnosed in Victoria every year.

 

Physical symptoms vary among individuals

 

The type, number, severity and progression of symptoms varies greatly between individuals. No two people are affected in the same way. Some of the main symptoms are:

 

Tremor (shaking)

 

Rigidity (muscle stiffness)

 

Bradykinesia (slowness of movement)

 

Freezing

 

Stooped posture

 

Shuffling gait

 

Micrographia (small handwriting)

 

Lethargy, fatigue and/or pain.

 

Causes are unknown

 

At present, there is no known cause of Parkinson’s disease and therefore the condition is termed ‘idiopathic’. Research is being conducted worldwide to investigate possible causes, including:

 

Pesticides, toxins or chemicals

 

Genetic factors

 

Head trauma

 

Personality types.

 

How is Parkinson’s commonly managed?

 

Parkinson’s is managed by:

 

Drug therapy and/or medication

 

Neurosurgery

 

Multidisciplinary therapy (for example physiotherapists, dietitians, counsellors).

 

Things to remember

 

Parkinson’s is a manageable condition.

 

The symptoms of Parkinson’s vary in number, type, severity and progression.

 

No two people will experience the condition the same way, so management will also vary.

 

Parkinsonís Disease or Parkinsonism?

 

Shaking, stiffness and slow movements are symptoms of a condition called parkinsonism. Parkinsonís disease is the most common type of parkinsonism. Other causes of “parkinsonism” include exposure to certain chemicals or drugs, head injuries and some infections.

 

What are the common symptoms of Parkinsonís Disease?

(not all people will experience all the following symptoms)

 

Tremor (shaking) when at rest. Most often, your hand or arm shakes on one or both sides of your body. The shake can also affect other parts of your body such as a leg, foot or chin. The shaking usually stops when you use that part of your body, and usually stops completely during sleep.

*Muscle rigidity ñ lack of facial expression may develop

*Speech and swallowing problems.

*Difficulty in initiating movements

*Slowing of movements ñ fine movements get difficult

*Impaired balance and co-ordination

* Loss of dexterity – the small muscles of the hands no longer work properly

* Hesitant, soft speech

* Other features ñ depression, stooped posture, problems with balance, dementia.

 

Is there a cure?

 

While there is no known cure, there are ways to manage some of the symptoms. Parkinson’s is not fatal and is not a mental illness

What is the treatment?

The main treatment for Parkinsonís is drug therapy. The best treatment program includes a combination of therapies, self-help programs, activity and diet. As the disease is slowly progressive, there may be little interference with normal activities for several years. A wide variety of drugs are available which don’t cure, but make movement easier and prolong functional life for many years.

Joyce’s Story – 80 years young with Parkinson’s Disease

Autism - Donor’s World

Sunday, 11 October 2009

kinesiology perth

One recent example that comes to mind is the case of a young three-year-old, autistic child whose developmental growth had been halted at 18 months of age. She hadn’t spoken, made any significant eye contact or had any real awareness of those around her, (including her mother), which of course was heart breaking for those who love her.

At her first visit, we cleared an emotional trauma. Immediately after her treatment, this little girl spun around to me, looked up at me with a big smile and outstretched arms. I picked her up and greeted her. She then looked around to find her mother and called, “Mummy”! Her mother broke into tears, as her daughter walked over to her for her first ‘real’ hug and contact for 18 months! “Welcome to the world dear little one!”

 

After three months of treatment, this developmentally delayed little girl is catching up quickly. She makes lots of direct eye contact, conversation, creative play, social interaction. She has also found the classic “NO” of a young healthy child.

The best news is that she is no longer being classified as Autistic!

5 years after, I ran into Donor’s mother. She was so excited to tell me:

“Donor is now reading, writing, communicating at a normal age level and best of all she is in a ‘normal, mainstream’ class and holding her own with other students.  She is well adjusted socially and has a few lovely ‘normal’ friends.  She has just gone from strength to strength.  Thanks Lee-Anne for changing Donor’s and my life permanently!”

CAP - Central Auditory Processing Disorder

kinesiology perth“Caitlin’s speech was so unclear that her teacher couldn’t understand her quiet requests . Now, her language is clear, she confidently reads, writes and participates well at school. She is now more able to find the words that her brain previously struggled to connect to. Caitlin is happily confident at school and home in every way.

 

Now, after only 10 session with Lee-Anne, Caitlin is performing above average in class with reading, spelling and writing. She has clear communication with her teacher and friends who are not having any problems understanding her dictation.  The frustration levels for her friends, teacher, family and Caitlin, have evaporated. She’s a confident little girl who has more friends, is happy and no longer being held back in fully expressing herself to us all.

 

We always knew our little girl was bright and now she is able to show us all that is true.”

Downes Syndrome - Pete’s Success

kinesiology perth

“From a young man who had several behavioural challenges, struggling to think for himself, to a confident, assertive man who now holds down a job. His employer said: “We wish we had 10 Peter’s as he’s such a great worker.”

“Our son has Downes Syndrome and is eighteen.  We started seeing Lee-Anne about two years ago.  Peter also goes to a Naturopath and Brain Gym with Lee-Anne was recommended by the Doctor as a treatment for some Autistic and behavioural problems.

We’ve gone from the teachers having to put behavioural plans in place to manage him on his bad days, to the teachers saying he’s a pleasure to have in the class.  We now generally have more good days than bad and are grateful for these changes.  We enjoys his work and is proud of his efforts and job.

Peter is more settled and enjoys the Brain Gym with Lee-Anne as well as liking and choosing to do the exercises at home.”

Dyspraxia - Global Delay

Friday, October 9, 2009

 

kinesiology perthAfter only five short sessions with Lee-Anne, Benjamin’s active seeking of constant sensory stimuli has ceased. His concentration span has increased markedly which has opened up a whole new world to both him and us. He is currently making great developmental gains in every area. Nothing short of a miracle! He is now wired to have all the therapy work as it was intended to. We are continuing a daily regimen of ten minutes of Lee-Anne’s specialised exercises with him. Most days he asks for and thoroughly enjoys these. We are so grateful for the opportunity Brain Gym and Lee-Anne’s particular use of her specialised Kinesiology skills, has given us to maximise Benjamin’s potential.”

What can you do to empower yourself to truly help your child?

Let me tell you Benjamin’s stories

Bejamin’s Story  –  Globally Dyspraxic  –  Autism Scale

“We have an adorable, affectionate and happy Globally Dyspraxic son Benjamin. He has been attending Occupational therapy, Speech therapy and Physiotherapy since he was 18mths old when he first began to miss developmental milestones. His progress was slow but steady. He has also suffered from chronic ear infections and had grommets inserted and removed.”

 

He exhibited a high level of motor activity and the Paediatrician suggested the possibility of ADHD and Autism as part of his long term picture. He actively sought physical contact almost continuously often using us and anyone available including complete strangers as climbing poles and very seldom sat still. His concentration span was short and variable and he woke often during the night disturbing the whole family’s sleep.

A new teacher of one of Benjamin’s siblings Gene Croft, who had had experience in teaching a Dyspraxic students over a number of years suggested I try Brain Gym and referred me to Lee-Anne. Being a Registered Nurse/Midwife and Intensive Care Nurse I thought I had a reasonable medical understanding of my son’s diagnosis, and had never heard of Educational Kinesiology. Both my husband and I researched The Brain Gym websites and I spoke to some parents of Dyspraxic students who highly recommended the treatment.

Prior to meeting with Lee-Anne I read extensively texts she referred me to on Reflexes, Learning and Behaviour and felt for the first time in almost 4yrs that I had finally discovered the key to unlock our little man’s potential. Somehow all the therapy we were so diligently attending too was frustratingly slow as if we were missing a vital link in the chain for what he needed.

On initial assessment Benjamin was highly excitable, mobile and difficult to pin down for any length of time, but by the third session with Lee-Anne he was visibly more relaxed, calmer within himself and actually lying still for her to manipulate and treat him. I certainly don’t understand the magic Lee-Anne works on any level except to say that it has made a profound difference to Benjamin and our whole family. Since his third treatment he has slept through the night, a priceless development. This has had immeasurable positive effects on us all. He even wakes up happy now which he never did before seeing Lee-Anne some two months ago.

After only five short sessions with Lee-Anne, Benjamin’s active seeking of constant sensory stimuli has ceased. His concentration span has increased markedly which has opened up a whole new world to both him and us. He is currently making great developmental gains in every area. Nothing short of a miracle!

He is now wired to have all the therapy work as it was intended to. We are continuing a daily regimen of ten minutes of Lee-Anne’s specialised exercises, tailored especially for him. Most days he asks for and thoroughly enjoys these.

We are so grateful for the opportunity Brain Gym and Lee-Anne’s particular use of her specialised Neuro-Kinesiology skills, has given us to maximise Benjamin’s potential.”

Emily - Teenage Confidence

kinesiology perth

“We are managing the home exercises quite well. They are a joy to do and nice for the girls to do with me at the end of the day.”

“Hello Lee-Anne,

Thank you for all your great work during the holidays. Emily has made some wonderful progress. All very exciting.

After we had finished our sessions Emily managed to join a queue to go and ask and pay for her lunch on her own. This is fantastic because she usually refuses point blank unless Phoebe or myself go in line with her and help order and pay.

After this major stepping stone both girls went to the movies whilst I continued shopping in the shopping centre. They have never felt confident enough to sit in the movies without me, another adult or some older child. Not only that but they went and asked and paid for the tickets by themselves. Very exciting.

Emily has shown a great deal more confidence and the incidence of shrugging shoulders and saying  “I don’t know” has lessened and mischievous humour is taking its place.

We are managing the home exercises quite well. They are a joy to do and nice for the girls to do with me at the end of the day.

So I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
