ADAPTIVE CAPACITY

Have you ever wondered why some people never get sick when the flu goes around the office? Or those that can eat & drink rubbish where others need to stay clean & organic to feel great. Its all about Adaptive Capacity! The greater your Adaptive Capacity, the more your body can “roll with the punches” of life, or for some that’s the more you can “mis-behave” before paying the consequences!

One of the keys to thriving rather than surviving is to increase your Adaptive Capacity & we’re here to help you do just that. 4 members of the Central To Health team will be conducting a bunch of assessments (postural, neurological, cranial/jaw and heart rate variability) that can help you find a way to increase your resilience chemically, physically, emotionally & mentally. Come armed with your questions & an enquiring mind and let us help you unlock the amazing self-healing, self-regulating capacity of your own body.
