Denise Cambiotti (Well Balanced Kinesiology and Consulting), Vancouver, BC

Long time wellness consultant Denise Cambiotti helps her clients improve range of movement and flexibility in all areas of their lives. A happy by-product of a session or two is noticeable reduction of pain or stuck-ness, and increase of positive feelings and lightness in body and soul.
While Denise originally found the modality of Stress Indicator Point System (SIPS) to be second to none in almost instantly releasing old injury compensations and improving other structural issues, it didn't take her too long to discover that SIPS addresses much, much more than just physical issues. She routinely utilizes SIPS in over 90% of her sessions, with some sessions being almost exclusively SIPS oriented.

Denise is a specialized kinesiology practitioner who utilizes muscle monitoring with each of her clients to discover exactly where each person is holding their stress, and what exactly needs to be done to release those stresses to return the client to wellness.
It's easy to experience.

Denise's passion for her work lead her to become certified to teach others. Touch for Health Kinesiology, Applied Physiology (Agape Quest series), Circuits Alive Muscle Tuning(TM), and Brain Formatting are the workshops she absolutely loves to teach in her own dynamic way.

Because she is committed to promoting the learning of various models of specialized kinesiology, she has operated the Canadian Kinesiology Bookstore (online) since 2003. Her inventory includes material from authors in North America, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and she joyfully ships to any country having inquisitive students of this type of work.
