Full Biomechanical Assessment

This is the sort of assessment you will receive from any prepared Physiotherapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor, or any other Health Professional.

It might slightly differ between professions but it will aim to assess the functionality of joints, muscles, and nerves.

This will allow us to find out if is there any mechanical cause associated with your pain, for example:

  • A joint has a reduced movement(for example, the neck can move better to the right rather than to the left)
  • A ligament or tendon or a nerve is injured
  • There is severe damage to a joint(for example, the hip joint has severe arthrosis needing a replacement).
  • Spot Red Flags such as inflammatory disease, fractures or anything else which might need further investigations.

We combine knowledge from different disciplines to deliver
the best possible assessment.

Autonomic Nervous system assessment

As you look to the picture on the right so you can see that autonomic nervous system is present in all your body and controls most of the functions in the organs and body, such as:

  • Heartbeat
  • Blood Pressure
  • Digestion
  • Respiration
  • Muscle contraction 
  • and many, many more

It’s very important to mention its role regarding STRESS REGULATION.
In fact, as due parts that we can call ON (Sympathetic) and OFF(Parasympathetic) if the two are not balanced the Body, and the Mind will start to develop a wide range of symptoms. For example: Muscle stiffness/Tightness and Pain are a very important ones to consider.

How do we assess it?

  • We take a Heart rate Variability measurement which is an Index that measures your status of Health and Wellbeing. Depending on your age it should be within a particular value. Read More
  • Evaluation of 24h Sleep Pattern and Stress Levels
  • The specific questionnaire developed to assess Autonomic the Nervous system





Acupuncture assessment following Western and Chinese Medicine Principles


Acupuncture can be very good to balance the Energetic system and this assessment is highly correlated with the Autonomic system function above and the related levels of stress.

For this purpose, we use an Innovative Method called Rééquilibration Fonctionnelle®

Kinesiology muscle Testing

It is used to test Subconscious responses, through a binary system YES/NO.

Let’s say for example that 3 months ago happened a physical/emotional trauma, then through the muscle testing, we can test if that trauma is still affecting your body or mind at a subconscious level.

What means is that after the trauma, even though you might not be aware of it, the Subconscious has set some protective pattern that can cause Pain in a particular area of the body.

In the same way, it can be used to spot Limiting Beliefs that can be related to:

  • Fear of movement
  • Fear of reinjury
  • Limiting Beliefs in regard of the pain condition
  • Limiting Beliefs that are causing/maintaining stress and thus influencing the pain

Treatments to deal with Stress and Unhealthy Emotions

The latest researches are finding more and more correlations between negative emotions, high levels of stress and pain.

What means is that it will create a self-maintaining Loop:

Pain—can generate Stress—-which generate Negative emotions—-which will increase the Pain perceived—-this loop can self-maintain even when the injury which caused the injury is gone.

Increased levels of Stress—can generate both Negative emotions and Pain, without any particular injury—this over time will increase the levels of Stress—generating even more Pain and Negative Emotions

What can we do to break down this Loop?

there are several possibilities to tackle it down, such as:

  • Reduce the level of stress
  • Balance the Autonomic Nervous system
  • Increase the Resilience
  • Remove or modify limiting beliefs that are causing stress
  • Remove or modify limiting beliefs that are maintaining the Pain
  • Remove present or past Triggers which are causing a high level of Stress
  • Increase the experience of positive emotions, triggering the brain reward circuits
  • and more…

For this purpose, we use different techniques such as:

  • Verbal and Non-Verbal Hypnosis + NPL Techniques
  • Havening
