Fanny is a French national who decided to make South Africa her home. After working as a lecturer and a language practitioner for 12 years, she discovered kinesiology and was impressed by its health benefits. She found in this gentle, powerful modality a golden opportunity to work with animals, which she had wanted to do since she was a child. Fanny qualified in both Equine and Canine Kinesiology through the Specialised Kinesiology College of South Africa and now teaches these courses for the college. She is a keen horse rider and the proud mum of two fur kids,
She is committed to helping horses, dogs and cats ̶ and even other animals, where possible ̶ as well as their owners on the path to recovery, well-being and happiness and to enhancing the pet-owner relationship. Just as kinesiology can help you, as a human being, to perform and feel at your best, so can it benefit your animal companion, who may also, at some point, feel the effects of stress due to a variety of factors. Kinesiology works in very much the same way in animals as it does in humans, gently restoring the body’s self-healing ability and identifying as well as correcting potential stressors in the animal’s environment, with the owner’s input. It has proved to be particularly efficient with dogs and horses.
When working with Ena, one is immediately struck by her depth of her understanding not only of Kinesiology but of health in general. Having confronted and overcome severe obstacles in her own health, relationships and work environments, Ena is excited to offer her experience as a Kinesiology instructor in Vredendal, her home town. Ena knows and understands the power of nature, and holds a Doctorate in Herbology which easily combines with Kinesiology as a powerful and unique opportunity to naturally address a myriad of life’s stresses. Ena’s extensive knowledge comes through in her teaching. She is grounded, clear and concise when teaching and sharing her knowledge.
