Bio + Kinetics = Life + Movement
Using the philosophy of “life through movement”, a biokineticist is an allied health professional and exercise specialist registered with the HPCSA.
A biokineticist prescribes scientific-based physical activity programmes to promote overall health and quality of life, maintain physical abilities and carry out final-phase physical rehabilitation.
People of all ages and walks of life, special population groups and athletes can all benefit from biokinetics sessions, which are fully customised to your individual needs and goals.
