Maria Franklin

Natural Health Practitioner KFRP BSc(Psychology)

I have always been fascinated by the body and how such a complex system knows how to grow, develop and maintain itself. My interest is in the whole person, and how the interaction of our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, foods and genes influences our wellbeing.  Physical symptoms are our body’s way of telling us that something is not quite right, and using a combination of Kinesiology, Nutritional Testing and Emmett Technique allows me to start to address problems at the level, or levels, they arise.

My first encounter with kinesiology was almost 20 years ago through a consultant I was seeing for issues with toxic metals.  Discovering a method for communicating with the body was truly inspiring and later led me to train in Kinesiology. Kinesiology is a muscle testing technique for accessing information from the body and also a system designed to help us understand and change our patterns and behaviours.  Kinesiology can include evaluating foods and supplements that can support or weaken the body, looking at any unhealthy beliefs and mindsets or helping to process stressful events.


I have always been interested in the mind and body connection, and how our thoughts affect our physical body is neatly demonstrated by the placebo effect, where our thoughts can produce the reaction of a substance we believe we are taking.   Equally, the food we eat affects our mind.   My final psychology degree project was inspired by research into the benefits of micronutrients for mental well being. Research shows that offering a range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in a form that the body can easily assimilate can improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, ADHD, autism, bipolar disorder, OCD and more.  I am also interested to look beyond the benefits of nutrients to the underlying causes of deficiency. If you would like more information on the micronutrients and the research please contact me.


Our physical body reflects any tension, pain and discomfort we hold whether from physical activity and repetitive actions, or from stress and anxiety.  EMMETT Technique is a gentle muscle release technique which addresses pain, improves movement and usually leaves you feeling looser and lighter. EMMETT can be a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with kinesiology and nutritional testing.
