Integrated Brain Based Approaches to Health
Who We Are.
We are integrative health practitioners who use functional brain-based approaches in the treatment of the brain, body, psyche and spirit. We draw from a variety of different clinical modalities across complementary medicine. We also educate holistic health practitioners, manual therapists, movement professionals or any individuals who want to integrate clinical neuroscience into their practice.

A bit more Detail.
Applied Movement Neurology is a form of Functional Neurology that aims to assess and calibrate altered charge in the neurological and bioelectrical systems. Your physiology is assessed and screened for signs of dysfunction.
Some of the areas assessed are the vestibular system, cerebellum, sensory and motor system, cranial nerves, limbic and other homestatic systems such as diaphragm, digestive tract, immune system, circadian system, water balance and structure.
The practitioner will assess these different systems via the use of muscle testing, effectively asking the Brain what is going on.
Sports Therapy Kinesiology is a multi disciplinary approach to treating neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. It draws from the manual therapies such as neuromuscular therapy, myotherapy, visceral manipulation, neural manipulation and joint mobility. It also uses brain based assessment and correction strategies drawing from the fields of kinesiology, biomechanics, functional neurology, neurological development and orthopaedic medicine.
Combining these fields of knowledge together allows us to gain a rapid insight into what may be causing your pain and dysfunction. From there we can tailor a personalised corrective exercise program to address your unique imbalances. We aim to address the root cause and move you from dysfunction to function as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
Vagus Nerve Stimulation
A unique brain-based therapy that targets the all-important Vagus nerve. This cranial nerve is very important in all conditions that are inflammatory as the nerve when working well, activates the body's own anti-inflammatory reflex.
The therapy involves the use of a TENS machine and special clips that are placed in the ear, the area that relates to the Vagus nerve. This stimulation switches the nerve on and tones it, just like you would a muscle so it can go about it's job of reducing inflammation, boosting the immune system and treating the gut-brain axis.
This cutting edge therapy is based on the tremendous amount of clinical research being done on a range of chronic and complex conditions.
Integrative and Functional Medicine aims to find the underlying causal factors behind chronic conditions. Your unique health history is analysed carefully to determine personalised nutritional, dietary and lifestyle modifications to support your digestive and immune systems. Often these approaches serve as the foundation to making lasting changes to your health.
You may require some specific lab tests to determine the underlying factors before those key areas can be addressed.
The key focus areas of this approach are detoxification and colon health, anti-inflammatory nutrition, mitochondrial health, digestion, cold therapy, fasting, hydration, sleep and breathing.
Mind Body Medicine
Mind Body Medicine recognises that we are at our most healthiest when we connect inwardly and express that outwardly.
This therapy dives deep to connect the symptoms of the body to the patterns of the mind and allows for us to truly heal from the inside out.
You will notice deep changes at the core of your being that will effect any physical ailments you are having in a positive way.
Very effective for any long term chronic conditions.
We offer personalised corrective exercise programs for our clients, especially those recovering from any musculoskeletal issues. Our focus is brain-based approaches to rehabilitation and performance using Applied Movement Neurology.
Our focus areas are:
Joint Stability & Mobility
Complex movement skills
Human Gait cycle re-patterning
Functional Strength and conditioning
Nick is incredibly gifted. I learnt a lot from him and shifted things that had been laying stagnant in my body for a long time.. He taught me how to reconnect and listen to what my body was telling me. He is a great teacher and has an outstanding knowledge on connecting mind and body - he explains things clearly and also makes you feel relaxed.. . My sessions with Nick have helped me mentally and physically.. I would highly recommend. Just wish he would come and practice in the UK where I now live!

Nick is one of Australia's most innovative health and fitness practitioners and educators. After his time as a soldier in the Australian Army, Nick developed a keen interest in high performance and rehabilitation. From there he studied Personal Training, Kinesiology, Mind-Body Medicine and Integrative Medicine which equipped him to deal with the types of complex issues clients were presenting with.
He became a lecturer in those modalities for the College of Complementary Medicine and has written courses in the field of Sports Therapy Kinesiology, Corrective Exercise and Manual Therapy. Nick is continuously studying the human brain and nervous system. Most recently Applied and Functional Neurology and a Bachelor in Myotherapy.
Nick has a holistic but targeted approach to understanding human physiology at a very deep level. Nick's clients have typically been to see a range of other practitioners with minimal results and require a different approach.
Nick also holds the position of practitioner mentor with the Applied Movement Neurology academy, mentoring students all over the world in the practice of AMN.
