What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiologists study the science of human movement in different environments: domestic, professional, sports and recreational.
Kinesiologists must teach their patients to manage pain or prevent injuries through physical, sports and/or artistic exercises. They can also help their patients gain greater mobility and regain a better physical condition.
The exercises can be done individually or in groups, with only the kinesiologist or in team with other health professionals to offer a complete approach.
The goal is to offer all types of individuals (including people with disabilities or chronic illnesses) the opportunity to practice with adapted and safe technical, material and motivational conditions.
My approach is focused on the healthy body. Indeed, as a graduate of a STAPS degree with a specialization in APAS (Adapted Physical Activity for Health).
She mobilizes both multidisciplinary scientific knowledge to evaluate the resources and specific needs of her patients as well as motor teaching situations that use physical, sports and/or artistic activities.
It is thanks to these tools that I can conceive devices and projects of intervention which mobilize my teaching competences and the whole of the technical, material and motivational conditions adapted to the situation and the safety of the practitioner.
