Applied Kinesiology


What is Applied Kinesiology and Why is it Different?

The ICAKUSA website answers this question best:

“Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK, a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts, has become a dynamic movement of health care… It is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system.

Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counseling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures. [Applied Kinesiology practitioner’s are taught to treat a patient using a triad of health – structural, chemical, and emotional]. The physician who is aware of the triad of health, and evaluates every patient for all three sides, increases his/her ability to find the basic underlying cause of patient’s health problem(s).”

Who benefits from Applied Kinesiology?

  • Those who have received chiropractic care before and have seen some benefit but are looking for more and for that benefit to last longer.
  • Athletes who are looking to heal from injury quicker and prevent injury in the future.
  • The weekend warrior, the cross-fitter, power lifters, the individual who exercises and wants to improve their performance. How does it benefit these individuals? It finds muscles that are not firing and gets them firing.
  • People who are in pain or their musculoskeletal system is limiting them in some way and they’re tired of suffering.

Applied Kinesiology doesn’t chase symptoms. It looks for those root causes and treats them. Those root causes could be structural, chemical (nutrition, etc.), or emotional (memories, etc.).
