“I am blown away by Patricia Smith, her professionalism, compassion and above all healing skills and ways of working with the body.
Ever since menopause, I have had high cholesterol and have been told to eat less and exercise more. I thought that was what I did, and I was puzzled that I didn’t get results.
I had been on a journey with Ayurvedic medicine, healing and naturopathic and homeopathic remedies, and all of those had helped a little bit but my cholesterol kept rising.
Patricia was able to ask my body what it wanted to eat, and what it needed help with. She was able to show me how to manage my food intake responsibly and how to feed my body while supporting my liver and adrenal glands.
When we started, only two months ago, my body also showed a pre-diabetic insulin response. I knew I was using food to manage my emotional and hormonal states, but wasn’t able to stop. I felt I was addicted to coffee, sugar, and fatty foods like crisps. It was really hard not to eat those things.
My body showed us that it basically wants to eat mostly plant-based food, with some white fish and the occasional portion of lamb. With Patricia’s help I have stopped having all manner of foods that I felt I could not live without. It was effortless, my body just stopped wanting to have it!
As a result, my body and mind have calmed down. There is less inflammation, my thyroid is back on board, my heart palpitations have gone, the ringing in my ears has gone, my hair has stopped falling out. I have more energy, and I sleep better. And I have also lost weight! Something I never thought was possible.
Incidentally, this has also had a direct effect on muscle stiffness in different areas in my body. I had an old injury around my hip that would not resolve itself, no matter how much massage, healing or osteopathy treatment I threw at it. This is now non-existent.
What Patricia has shown me, and what she is really good at, is that everything that shows up in the body is a mix of emotional, mental and physical imbalances that can be resolved with food and simple touch, and the occasional supplement.
I would recommend anybody to see her initially at least a couple of times to address any imbalances in the body, be they of a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual nature.”
CP, Auckland (54 years old)
I was constantly aching and tired, dragging myself through each day achieving very little. So I started to go to Yoga to increase my fitness and stretch out the aches and pains. This was very beneficial and I started to feel better, however my body was not so easy to convince.
I have suffered migraines since the age of 9, it is apparently in the genes. I get sickness and pain which affect my head and stomach, it lasts for at least 24 hours. Migraine you learn to accept and live with, which I have done for 40 odd years, but reaching for painkilling drugs almost every week was becoming worse, it started to feel like days at a time.
Having missed a class due to Migraine, Patricia asked me how often I suffered. She said she could probably help me through my nutrition and supplements. I was open to help that did not involve any more doctors, giving me stronger drugs or worse, in my opinion giving my hormone treatment.
The advice Patricia gave me was straightforward and easy to put in place around the rest of my family’s needs. Each week she helped me to “listen” to what my body was telling me and we discussed what I could do with my nutrition and supplements to increase energy and feel better.
After only a short time my energy levels have improved and my body is able to get more goodness out of the food I eat. I have also lost weight which is a plus but most importantly I can’t remember when I last had a migraine. A year ago I was keeping a diary of attacks, I got to 36 in a year, I am finally getting control, drug free.
I would highly recommend Patricia at Equilibrium. Practical advice, knowledge and patience with a genuine concern that I would get a positive result.
I am very pleased to be able to review such an amazing person. Patricia is so much more than a Yoga Teacher, she is supportive, caring and genuine. She gets to know all her pupils individually and tailors and adjusts her classes where necessary to suit our individual needs.
I have been a pupil of Patricia for over three years and in the first two years regained my balance, shape and confidence in myself. Unfortunately early this year I suffered a stroke. I am now back at yoga, have regained my balance (which I lost on my right hand side), and my strength. Yoga has helped me read my body’s signals, so I know when to slow down and when to work a little harder.
I am confident with Patricia’s help and support I will be back at my former fitness and health levels in no time at all.
My husband and I went to see Patricia for Adrenal Fatigue and also food allergies. By using Touch for Health both issues have improved a lot. Patricia checked our status of all vitamins and minerals and balanced them out when indicated, and she checked and balanced the supplements we’re taking so that we can get the best out of them. My husband had pain on his tailbone from a fall and Patricia used her Kinesiology skills and within 10 minutes the pain had gone completely and he stayed pain free.
I would highly recommend Patricia, she does GREAT work. Thanks Patricia 🙂
For anyone wishing to use Patricia Smith’s Touch for Health/Kinesiology service I am happy to recommend her. I received this service during it’s development, at which time I was experiencing unpleasant effects of a particular supplement I feel my body needs (with good reason). Patricia not only accurately targeted that product but then suggested a way to take it wherein my body would not experience issues. That advice brought back my sleep pattern and I adopted another clever suggestion of Patricia’s which has helped my health.
I went to see Patricia with my lovely wife. Patricia is aware of and knows much about muscle memory and such. I am a bit sceptic, but when things started to improve for me, I realised it does work! Touch for health is what blew me away. I went to her with a very sore tailbone from a fall and in 10 minutes Patricia had the pain taken away with Touch for Health.
I would recommend seeing her. Thanks Patricia
Through her knowledge, guidance, warmth and positive support, Patricia has inspired me to embark upon a lifestyle with nutrition and wellness at its core. Her recommendations are responsive to my families lifestyle and both manageable and realistic. I have also been attending her Yoga class which I will describe as a wee vacation for my soul while my body gains core strength, balance and awareness. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone.
Can not rate her highly enough!
I am so grateful to have met Patricia she is the perfect, balanced Yoga Instructor and Nutritionist with such a wealth of knowledge. Even better, she is constantly evolving and just keeps bringing more to the classes. Her presence is calm and her friendly attitude is ever positive. It’s clear that she loves what she does. Patricia gives with patience, insight and love. I simply can’t rate her highly enough!
Fabulous yoga classes
I have been attending Patricias classes for over a year now and they are the best classes I Have been to and I have attended a few over the years. My strength in my legs, arms and back has increased pretty quickly. My suppleness is slowly getting there but I think this is a long term goal and will improve over time. I have quite a physical job and used to suffer from a lot of shoulder discomfort and thoracic spine problems and had to visit an Osteopath on a regular basis. I now find as long as I regularly attend Patricias classes my shoulders and back are no longer a problem, thanks for a great class Patricia!
Patricia’s yoga class is wonderful for me.
I always come away feeling relaxed and peaceful.
I am a gardener, and my body feels good when I wake up the next morning after yoga, instead of sore and stiff when I haven’t been to yoga.
I would love to attend Patricia’s yoga classes every evening if this was possible!
I value and appreciate Patricia for her knowledge, and her caring and nurturing personality.
Patricia is patient, encouraging and has a calm, confident approach – her relaxation phase is incredible and taking her classes has changed my life!
