Want To Move Freely and Without Pain with the Body Mobility Video Tutorials?

Yes, Teach Me How

Kardia Eracleous

Personal Trainer and AMN Practitioner
-I’m not a ‘Get fit for summer’
-I’m a ‘Get fit for life’.

This is what I encourage with all my clients, after all your body is not just for summer!  I work holistically, so finding out about every aspect of your lifestyle is key for me to be able to help you achieve optimal fitness and health.  I’ll ask how you sleep? What your food choices tend to be? What your working environment is?  How you choose to relax?  I like to know as much as I can regarding everything that may impact your life and your quality of life, and this will help to get the lasting results we all want.  If your reason for doing it becomes stronger than your struggle, this helps to keep you focused on the bigger picture!  My role is to support and help you to become a stronger and healthier person, suggesting lifestyle changes if that’s what’s needed.  I want you to experience how great your body can feel, and how amazing you will.

One life one body

I know we can’t control everything, but we can control more than you’d think. Complacency with our daily habits can be a slippery slope to our future (ill) health.  All I want for everyone is what I want for myself, which is an independent, and healthy long life.  Changing and improving has no upper age limit, It’s never too late.  You’ll feel great from the moment you decide to really take care of your self.

What My Clients Say:

“Thank you Kardia for giving my life more quality.”

I’d been living with constant pain in my left arm and shoulder for over 2 years due to whiplash injury. I’ve had physio, acupuncture,  and osteopathy treatments and the pain would ease off, but always return.  I’m a hairdresser so constant raising of my arms and having to hold the hairdryer would aggravate the condition.  In July 2017 I suffered a further injury in the gym whilst trying to strengthen my arm, the pain was so severe that even strong pain killers did nothing. That’s when I looked for alternative treatment.  Kardia took time to work through my long pain history and after the first treatment I was able to move my arm more but still had some pain.  The treatment would leave me feeling really tired (a positive) and I’d go home and have a nap. Somehow I felt lighter as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.  I had a few more sessions with Kardia with amazing results and now wake up pain free and have almost full range of movement in my shoulder and arm.  The treatment always left me with a feeling of calmness.  Thank you Kardia for giving my life more quality.

“Shocked to feel no pain after just one session!”

Thank you for fixing me kardia. You tell me you didn’t, that’s very modest but not true. I’m not easily convinced in therapy. Usually I would tell people the body has an amazing ability to heal itself. But a pain in my neck that had bothered me for two years would not go away.

I came to you and you told me not to tell you where the problem was or anything about it but that you would find it for yourself. I really felt that you had no chance of finding out where the injury was and so quietly let you put me through a series of movements and tapping. I was shocked when after a while you found my problem area and even more shocked to feel no pain after just one session! So I repeat. THANK YOU FOR FIXING ME. I will always recommend your work because it worked for me.

“She’s helped me with my sleep which has immensely improved my quality of life.”

I have now been training with Kardia since 2008 and although I used to exercise before that I never seemed to improve.

The results I’ve achieved since are amazing but I couldn’t have done that without her help.

Kardia is one of the most committed people I have ever come across. She is an inspiration herself with the way she leads her life and her approach to diet, exercise and health in general.

Her professionalism, kindness and friendly approach has kept me going for all these years and surely will keep me going for many more!

Her training in Amn has made her an even more accomplished trainer. She applies her new skills to treat any pain or discomfort during the session so I can move on with my training. Back pain has always been a problem for me due to being seated most of my working day, but since I started being treated by Kardia the pain has gone. Also, she’s helped me with my sleep which has immensely improved my quality of life.

“I feel great afterwards, like a car that’s just had a full service!”

Kardia has been my Pt for years, and tightness and pain in my back, hips, knees  and shoulders, pretty much everywhere at some point has been an issue, mostly I just get on with it.  In the past I’ve visited Physio’s and have had two steroid injections into my painful shoulder, that gave some relief but not for long.  I got to the point of actually being in the MRI scanner, but suffered so badly from claustrophobia they had to remove me!  Kardia has dealt with that shoulder pain, it took a few sessions, but thank god I haven’t needed to revisit the scanner!  I’ve walked into our PT sessions with my back so tight I can’t even reach my thighs let alone touch my toes, in the past this would have put a stop to training, but now If I go into a session with any problem she gets to work and just seems to sort it out for me. Alot of the time the pain and tightness is gone by the end of the session, and I’m touching my toes again EASILY!  Don’t ask me what she does it always baffles me, she never promises anything. But I feel great afterwards like a car that’s just had a full service!

“After two sessions with Kardia, my hip felt significantly better and the ease of movement had returned.”

I was introduced to Kardia after suffering with hip joint pains for 3 years. I had previously tried numerous sessions of physiotherapy at the hospital, as well as receiving steroid injections for the pain. My doctor had advised that the only option I had left was to undergo surgery for a hip replacement, which I felt was too extreme given my age (27). Kardia’s treatment was different from the traditional methods which I had tried, however I wanted to explore all the options of pain relief available. She made me feel at ease and comfortable with her, which I liked. After two sessions with Kardia, my hip felt significantly better and the ease of movement had returned. She also worked on my finger joints which have now stopped clicking, this was also a problem that had plagued me for years.  I would recommend being treated by Kardia to everyone, as her therapy sessions really work!”

“Kardia is genuinely interested in helping you and I can’t recommed her highly enough”

As a retired nurse and midwife, I can only say that what Kardia does is magic. I don’t understand how AMN taps into my brain and body but it is working.  Each session has greatly reduced years of joint stiffness and pain from past injuries, and I can’t wait to see how my body will feel at the end of the treatment.  I am more flexible now than I have been for many years. Kardia is genuinely interested in helping you and I can’t recommed her highly enough.

What does a session look like?

My work focuses on improving the communication between your brain and body.

The relationship between these two big players can sometimes break down, and these poor communications will impact how your body feels and slow down the speed of any recovery you may be going through.

Through my studies with the Academy of Applied Movement Neurology (AMN), I’m able to ‘evaluate and modulate neurological and bioelectrical circuits’. This results in highly effective results when it comes to:

  • All joint pain.
  • Back pain
  • Feeling of injury and pain.
  • Movement restrictions.
  • Balance.
  • Dizziness.
  • Coordination.
  • Loss of sensation.
  • Jaw issues.
  • Tightness.
  • Sleep issues.

For your body to function well and heal, it needs to be able to communicate with itself - AMN can help repair this dialogue.

Like any good relationship in life, good communication is key!

Combining Personal Training with Functional Neurology & AMN

What sets me apart from other trainers is my AMN skill set. I’ve learned how to interact with your body. I question the deeper systems through touching specific reflex points around your head and body.

It’s something thats needs to be experienced to really make sense of.

My aim is for your brain and deeper systems in your body to communicate as they should be, this in turn reduces compensation movement patterns, pain, and helps you to recover and become stronger.

I also utilise AMN therapy as a separate session when needed, for deep-rooted longer term physical issues you may be suffering with.

You’ll feel your body increase in strength, and any tightness and pain you’ve had will gradually improve.

What kind of Trainer am I?

I bring my Pt skills and AMN skills together during sessions to make sure your muscles are all firing as they should be, as this is where injuries can occur if they’re not. I’m a functional trainer, and this means it’s more about movement patterns. I’ll mostly utilise your body weight to create the resistance. This style of training crosses over perfectly to keeping you strong for your day to day life. Importantly, it’s load bearing and this is needed for building strength in your bones, joints and muscles. Your mobility, coordination, balance and core strength will always be challenged in your sessions. Doing movement patterns that garner your full attention will give you a stronger body and more robust nervous system, meaning that you’ll be less prone to injuries occurring. It’s always great to throw in some varied equipment to mix things up a bit! So I like to involve Kettle bells, Resistance bands, TRX, Mb, anything that adds variety!
