Applied Kinesiology is the study of the interdependent relationship of muscle strength to your overall health. Muscle weakness has been proven to be directly related to health issues in a coordinating or interdependent organ. Through proven methods of manual muscle testing and therapy, ailments such as the common cold and even organ dysfunction can be diagnosed and treated.
Applied Kinesiology works to restore normal nerve and body system function in the following ways:
Our methods are highly customized and are based on each patient’s unique health condition. Your doctor will perform a health assessment to determine any apparent muscle weaknesses. These types of functional illness usually precede the appearance of disease symptoms. By analyzing muscle strength, we can help prevent, or at least delay, the onset of more serious health problems.
Applied Kinesiology is based on the principles of functional neurology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and biochemistry. In addition, Applied Kinesiology has its roots in Chinese medicine and the natural treatments of acupuncture and massage.
This holistic method of treatment was first developed from traditional kinesiology in 1964 by George G. Goodheart, a chiropractor from Detroit, Michigan. Goodheart recognized that each large muscle in the body works closely with a corresponding body organ. A determined weakness in one muscle may indicate a developing health problem in the organ associated with that particular muscle. Goodheart found that by treating and strengthening the weakened muscle, he was also able to improve the function of the related organ.
