Teenage performance: the intersection of mental and physical health 


Clinical Concepts Live - February



Adolescence is a difficult time for so many. Hear what our dynamic speaker has to say, Kira Sutherland.

With academic and social pressures placing demands on teenage mental health, it is also a time of rapid growth and development.  

For teenage athletes, the physical and mental demands are further intensified. Complementary medicine practitioners are well placed to guide teenagers and their families as they try to optimise their health and sports performance. 
Common challenges
Hear some of the common challenges teen athletes face, from balancing hormones to focusing on immune health. 
Different body types
Kira is passionate about educating teenagers about their body type and how to understand what sports and foods are best for them.


Sports nutrition vs regular nutrition
Hear why Kira believes that sports nutrition is not about perfect nutrition, it's about fuelling for health and performance.
