Nutritionist Kinesiologist Allergy Advisor
Perth Allergy Clinic Team Jennifer Gallanagh Nutritionist Allergy Advisor
Jennifer graduated with a Masters Degree in Food Biotechnology and Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Nutrition from University of Ulster in Northern Ireland and is a member of the Australian Natural Therapist associations. When she moved to Perth it was the perfect opportunity to complete the three year Advanced Diploma in Kinesiology from the O’ Neill Kinesiology College, Myaree and she is now a member of the Australian Kinesiology Association.
Jennifer loves food and nutrition and helping people improve their diet. She truly believes in the phrase “you are what you eat” and wants her clients to be the best versions of themselves they can be by eating nutritious foods to suit their individual needs. Her background in food biotechnology gives her an understanding on the make up of food which can help when breaking down different foods to see if the sensitivity is from one component which makes up the food.
Jennifer understands the frustration that people who have food allergies and intolerances might have with their diet so she goes through her clients likes and dislikes, their cooking abilities and the time they have to come up with simple yet nutritious meal plans which will help clients achieve their nutritional goals.
She has always had an interest in natural medicine which is where she discovered the wonderful modality – kinesiology.
She started her kinesiology journey a number of years ago when she suffered sharp severe stomach pains and after visiting numerous doctors she went to see a kinesiologist. On the first session the kinesiologist told her to stay fish for a short time and from then she experienced the changes kinesiology made to her both physically and emotionally. After a number of gentle kinesiology balances her body was able to cope with fish and Jennifer was able to go out and enjoy fish and chips without a care in the world.
After studying kinesiology, Jennifer realised how much it can help people and not just for food allergies or intolerances but for hayfever, dust, washing powders, dog hair and so many more of the everyday intolerances people suffer from. When she finished her studies she joined the Perth Allergy Clinic when she saw the wonderful work they were doing for clients and how like Jennifer they truly want the best for all their clients.
Kinesiology is non-invasive for the client, it uses a process of gentle muscle monitoring to gain an insight into the muscle patterns and is able to assess how the body is functioning and locate the body imbalances.
Jennifer will look at different substances and how they affect the muscle and work on a plan with her clients on working with those which are causing the most stress to the body . The gentle correction techniques will incorporate sound therapy, acu-point therapy, chakra clearing and emotional stress diffusion to help with the natural healing process and clear these blockages and bring the body back to balance.
Because of its gentle nature, kinesiology is ideal for both children and adults.
Through kinesiology, profound changes may be experienced emotionally, mentally and physically, thereby increasing a person’s health and wellbeing.
Jennifer is passionate about health and wellbeing. She understands that everyone is different and everyone has different allergies and sensitivities. She will use her knowledge of nutrition and her kinesiology to work with her patients to help them and looks forward to working with both children and adults to help them with their allergies or sensitivities
Jennifer is excited to have joined Centro Health’s Team to bring her skills and her passion for health to you.
Kinesiology covers anatomy & physiology, neurology, nutrition, musculoskeletal, hormonal and biological systems of the body alongside the emotional and spiritual aspects to bring holistic mind and body balance to the whole person.
Kinesiology provides an alternative method of investigating allergies for those who do not wish to have a blood test so is perfect for children and infants where blood tests can be rather traumatic.Kinesiology is suitable for all ages from birth onwards however there are many adults also that also prefer to utilise kinesiology for their health needs too.
