Healing Hands: Kinesiology Therapy with John Bocti

I hurt my back a few months ago. I was using the wrong chair at my computer and as soon as I stood up, I knew something was wrong. I could hardly stand up and walking was very painful. Every once in a while, it would spasm for no reason. I immediately went to my trusted chiropractor who confirmed it was muscular and not structural. His treatments soothed it temporarily but didn’t affect the real problem. I also tried massage which did nothing. I had interviewed John Bocti of Kinnected Chain for my Willowdale neighbourhood website (www.Parkbench.com/Willlowdale), so I called John for help. I did know he has a clinic as well as a mobile in-home service to provide rehabilitation for post-surgery patients. He offered to do a treatment. I had no idea what his kinesiology treatments involved but I was willing to try anything to alleviate my lower back pain.

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human body movement. The kinetic chain is a term used to describe how the body is organized as a sum of its individual parts. Their goal is to maintain human movement, limit injury, and pain, by enhancing your body’s performance, including the heart, brain, muscles, and structure, helping to create a strong and well-balanced connected chain, for all.

After just one treatment, I felt some relief and after two or three weekly visits, I realised my problem had been solved. I tell John he has healing hands. His treatments are non-invasive and involve moving and stretching limbs and activating muscles that were connected to my problem area.

John’s primary goal is to keep people physically independent, pain-free and enhance their performance. He works with everyone across the lifespan, and he understands what no two people are the same. The approach will be the best for the person and what their goals and limitations are. He has been a member of the health sciences field since 2007 and has been fortunate enough to complete his college diploma at George Brown College in Fitness and Lifestyle Management, an Undergraduate Degree in Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia as well as a Master of Science Degree from Western University where he explored early stages of cognitive decline and how that affects our walking, balance and physical mobility, and how movement and exercise can help to improve cognitive functioning.
