Tara has also trained in Kinesiology, a modality that uses muscle testing to gain bio- feedback from the body. This biofeedback can be used with detox and nutritional test kits to determine whether the body is defi cient in nutrients or if it has been exposed to toxins such as parasites, heavy metals or pesticides. She then can prescribe nutritional supplementation or Chinese/western herbs, to improve your health. Kinesiology can also be used for releasing emotional disturbances, mental stress, learning diffi culties, anxiety, nightmares and a variety of health problems. Kinesiology can help keep a positive focus durning weight loss and cancer treatment. N.O.T. is a form of kinesiology that helps with structure realignment without harsh adjustments.
