Hi, my name is Sarah Floate and I’m a Kinesiologist. In short, this is a mix of modern Chiropractic and Chinese Medicine. I bring a wealth of knowledge to my practice and have had record success. Having practiced natural therapies for the past 10 years I have worked with a variety of individuals, families and children – vastly improving their quality of life and bringing health to an optimum. Currently, I work from a clinic in Fremantle, a beautiful room overlooking that deep blue Indian Ocean.
My vision is to “enhance health and increase the life fulfilment of society and develop a culture of natural therapy where individuals are not reliant on pharmaceuticals”
My mission is “to provide a quality service of natural therapies, specialising in Kinesiology in a caring, trusting and safe environment”
I look forward to sharing with you a few things about me…
A favourite quote of mine…
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”- Thomas Edison

Tell us three things about yourself
- I love to travel the world experiencing different cultures, traditions and cuisines.
- My most favourite place where I feel I can let go of everything and be at peace is when I am swimming in the ocean.
- I thoroughly enjoy watching foreign films – it takes me on a journey…
What’s been the biggest health challenge you’ve overcome and what did you learn from this experience?
In 2008 I had Adrenal Fatigue…
The adrenal glands, which sit atop each kidney, convert cholesterol into cortisol and other hormones that regulate many vital body functions, including inflammation, blood sugar production, immunity, tissue repair, and reproduction. Adrenal fatigue occurs when the glands release high quantities of cortisol, which eventually depletes the adrenals so they can’t produce enough hormones. Too much cumulative stress is typically the cause—whether it’s a back injury, a steady diet of espressos and doughnuts, or an unhappy situation. Symptoms range from the fatigue and chronic illness – I experienced absolute tiredness, pure exhaustion and a “foggy head” during my working day for nearly an entire year.
My adrenal fatigue was created by years and years of overthinking and over-analysing. These days I try and keep things simple and create goals and action them. Overthinking can generally come from inaction!
I have learned to keep my energy levels very stable through my dietary choices – eating very nutritious fruits and veggies and small portions of protein with low carbs… During this time I also used quality supplements to boost my immune system, had early nights to bed and exercised daily.
At the time of the adrenal fatigue I had just moved to the Blue Mountains from the hussle and bussel of Sydney life. I started to grow my own produce and it was just so amazing for my body and I could almost hear it sing to me with gratitude 🙂
What’s your top tip for getting your day off to a great start?
Drinking a glass of warm water with a squeeze of lemon and eating nutritious food to fuel the morning. Each meal that I eat I like to put as many colours onto the plate as I can – green, red, yellow/orange, white and blue/purple foods. Variety is the spice of life…
Your brekky usually consist of…
One or more of the following:
- Fruit, yoghurt, muesli
- Juices in the blender
Which foods do you eat to nourish your body and give you vitality?
All sorts of Fruit and veg…and proteins.
Why is fitness an important part of your life?
Helps to boost my energy levels and motivates me for the day!
What is your current exercise routine?
Daily yoga routine, take my dog walking twice a day. Daily stretching using my intuition to find which muscles need a big stretch. I love how my dog stretches his back and legs in different ways every time he gets up.
Describe what motivated you to choose your current business or career path?
I love helping individuals to achieve their dreams and goals. My work in Kinesiology is so rewarding and clients have had such success with their body, mind, spirit and health that it gives me so much inner joy.
What business or career challenge have you overcome and what one piece of advice would you like to pass on to others?
Find your passion and keep going… Look deep into your heart to find it.
I have endured various career paths but I found my passion in health and this is where I have created my business and success.
