The philosophy of Aura & Meta is to approach the person holistically and to improve and restore their health and wellbeing in the interconnected machinery that our body is.
Instead of treating symptoms, Aura & Meta focuses on the root cause of the imbalance and the connection between multiple organs, body systems and domains (physical, biological, environmental, mental, emotional and spiritual).
Be the CEO of your own health
Are you tired of being tired? Do you remember the last time you enjoyed a good night’s sleep? Do you experience PMS or menopausal symptoms? Do you find that your mood isn’t what it used to be?
We tend to accept fatigue, digestive complaints, insomnia, depression and symptoms of female hormonal imbalance as inevitable. It’s just the luck of the draw; it’s normal. But did you know that you do not have to put up with feeling below par?
It is not unusual to underestimate the power of nutrition in female health. What we eat is often discussed only regarding weight. But food is so much more than just calories, and unless you provide your body with the nutrients it needs to function as it should, it is bound to have a hard time to deliver. Once the raw materials are there, your body can make hormones and enzymes, at the same time feeding beneficial bacteria that strengthen your immune system and even produce more nutrients for you.
All body systems work together. If one of them is disrupted, this impacts on others, which can’t do their job as well as they should anymore, or may have to work harder to compensate, then tire. When you nourish your body, move regularly, sleep, and remove disruption from stress and environmental toxins, those body systems can find balance again. It’s in your hands. But where to start?
Functional medicine approaches health issues by taking your whole body, all of your symptoms – even small niggles – into account. Both your health history to date and your lifestyle provide valuable clues, too. This science-based approach to healing allows me to design a customised health plan just for you, one that suits you and your lifestyle. You have a lot more control over your health than you might think. Do you want to get back in charge?

Neuro-energetic kinesiology is a non-invasive holistic therapy that focuses on mind body connections to clarify personal and professional aspirations and set attainable goals. Through science-based methods (muscle response testing, traditional Chinese medicine meridians and Ayurvedic medicinal principles) Sandra Cohen helps clients better understand and activate their personal strengths to improve their response to challenges. In corporate settings, Sandra Cohen mixes kinesiology and professional business coaching to enhance key soft skills such as Leadership, Emotional intelligence and Interpersonal communication.
WHAT is neuroenergetic kinesiology ?
Neuroenergetic kinesiology is a non-invasive discipline that intermingles Western physiological theory and Eastern practices to release stress. As a holistic therapy, kinesiology examines the sources of the problem to restore balance to the mind and the body. This powerful stress management system calls upon the human body’s self-healing abilities by working around the source of the problem to restore balance.
Neuroenergetic kinesiology relies on muscle testing to assess and locate stressors within the body and to understand the extent of their impact (this can be in the rational mind or in other parts like the memory). Aura & Meta uses muscle testing as a doorway to the subconscious mind. The body’s response to a muscle test in direct connection with the subconscious reveals where there is compensation for physiological, emotional and spiritual imbalances.
This way Aura & Meta reaches areas below the surface to restore awareness and foster long-lasting changes in mindset and lifestyle. Other stress management techniques used by kinesiology practitioners to restore balance include the use of Chinese meridians and principles of Ayurvedic medicine for example.
HOW does neuroenergetic kinesiology work?
Kinesiology integrates science-based monitoring of muscles and neurological pathways, confirmed by modern medicine to be deeply connected to our habitual and repetitive thought-patterns. As a stress management system, neuroenergetic kinesiology includes non-invasive techniques such as acupressure or “Emotional stress diffusion”.
As a holistic therapy, neuroenergetic kinesiology takes a different approach to physical manifestations, moving beyond the physical areas directly affected by stress. Throughout sessions, Sandra identifies imbalances and physical disturbances so as to restore positive energy flows by creating fresh pathways for change. This way, clients can gain clarity and establish more effective responses to challenges that may arise in all areas of their lives, leading to an overall greater resilience to stress.
A neuroenergetic kinesiologist does not treat nor prescribe, he or she can choose to refer the client to a medical practitioner to insure that the symptom does not conceal a serious un-detected cause.
WHY choose kinesiology therapy ?
Beyond common manifestations of stress, kinesiology targets deep rooted causes. Intertwined mind body connections imply that an imbalance, emotional or physical, in one echoes in the other.
Stress can result in imbalances in corporal manifestations, which can emerge in various forms: physical injuries, posture, hormonal imbalance, addiction, insomnia, trauma or anxiety, with illness being the highest form of stress for the body.
Beyond simply addressing current stresses, practitioners dig deeper to identify and unlock blockages in the bioelectric communication systems between muscles, organs and other networks such as meridians.
Concentrating on the source, rather than the symptoms, not only leads to faster recovery but trains the body’s memory to better respond to similar stresses in the future. This creation of fresh pathways for change teaches us to associate mind and body in developing our ability to self-heal and restore positive energy flows, enabling us to reach our highest goals with greater ease.
What to expect during a kinesiology session?
1. A UNIQUE APPROACH
Stress can originate from emotional, physical or mental causes. The affliction itself, chronic or isolated, can manifest or compensate for an imbalance, sometimes directly related to apparent symptoms. Sandra does not work on the symptoms, but strives to identify their cause and to map the responsible stresses around this unease or pain.
2. A HOLISTIC PROCESS
Factors that cause stress can be structural, emotional, physiological and linked to the various areas of our lives. For example, the common migraine affliction suffered by millions, can be of mechanical, nutritional or neurological origins. Through muscle testing, via a biofeedback mechanism, Sandra locates and reads stress levels assessing the extent of the problem. Dialogue contributes greatly to the identification of root causes, even though an assessment can be made without the client’s verbal manifestation of the pain.
3. PERSONALISED SESSIONS
Sandra provides clarity and unlocks blockages, moving beyond excessive rationality, to set specific, personalised and attainable objectives (less pain, fewer outbreaks, reduced stress, etc). Through a tailored approach to each person’s needs, rhythms and internal processes, Sandra helps clients build an action plan towards achieving their goals.
