I love working with children and helping them work through the underlying issues that are causing them any sort of stress or upset.
How do I help children express how they feel?

What happens in a Children’s Kinesiology Session?
Each Kinesiology session is unique and flows according to the child’s needs. In some sessions we start by chatting directly with the child about how they are feeling and what is happening in their life at that particular time. Sometimes the child isn’t comfortable talking straight away so they sit and play with some things from my little box of magic while I chat to the parent/guardian of the child about the issues they’d like to work on. I also have a lot of parents that prefer to just hand me a note with the issues they’d like to work on, and then they leave it to me to manage how I bring up those issues with the child directly. I am flexible and always go with the best thing for the child on that particular day.
I always explain to the children what is going to happen in the session so they are not nervous about it. I explain that we’re just going to have a little chat, then they’ll get to lay on the massage table on their back and I’ll just be moving their arm up and down to help them feel better. I also explain that they will get to see some fun things that might test up for them, such as a special crystal they can hold, a beautiful card they can look at or maybe even a beautiful oil that they can smell.
Finally I also make sure that I let them know that they’ll receive a special little gift from me at the end of the session, which they are always excited about!
Are there age restrictions on Kinesiology for children, and does the parent/guardian stay for the session?
There are no restrictions on Kinesiology for children, each child has their own individual personality and needs so I will speak with their parent/guardian to establish what is the best way for them to be treated, as a general rule though I would recommend the following;
What is the duration and cost of a Child’s Kinesiology Session?
Kinesiology sessions for children 10yrs and under are normally 60mins in duration, both for the initial and follow up sessions, unless otherwise discussed and agreed that a longer time period is required.
Kinesiology sessions for children/teenagers 10yrs and up and 90mins for the initial session and then follow up sessions are 60mins in duration.
The appropriate duration for your child can be discussed when we are booking in the session, as it is very much based around the child’s particular needs and stressors that are to be worked on.
Pricing is as follows:
90min Kinesiology Sessions – $180 Chelsea Clinic || $165 Pakenham Clinic & Online
60min Kinesiology Sessions – $120 Chelsea Clinic || $110 Pakenham Clinic & Online
Kinesiology has been part of my life so long and I am so grateful that I can share this gift with my children. Sometimes we are unable to get in touch with our children’s needs and we actually can be closed to either accepting those needs or even feeding them when we are going through emotional feelings ourselves. So the answer for me is to allow my children to experience Kinesiology. The shifts are immediate and some take a little more time but more often or not if the practitioner has their heart open to accept all characteristics of children and who they are, they will open up. Stacey Wilson thank you so much for allowing my children to be able to trust you and open up… If you’re looking for an amazing Kinesiologist specialising in children Stacey is amazing…” – Candice
Stacey is a gem. My 6 year old was enamoured after 1 session and is improving everyday. Stacey is calm, patient and understanding with young kids. Can not recommend her enough.” – Airlie
