22 Dirkie Uys street, Somerset West.

The profession of Biokinetics is still relatively new, so it is fast growing and developing into a well-recognized alliance to health and medicine. The word Biokinetics is taken from the Greek word "BIOS" which means "life" and "KINESIS" which means "movement". In other words, it refers to the maintenance of quality of life through the use of physical activity.
