Applied Kinesiology borrows from many different disciplines, using muscle testing as a guide for diagnosis and patient care.
The ancient Chinese observed that every muscle in the body links to a specific organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. By testing the strength of its related muscle, we get a glimpse of the condition of that particular organ or tissue. Simple muscle testing helps us uncover the structural, chemical and mental problem that may be in your body. It can also direct us to the best options to restore your health.
Finding the Problem
First, we review the history of your health situation. This is followed by a thorough physical examination. Instrumentation and laboratory tests may be needed. Then we analyse your posture, the way you walk, turn and bend. By combining these findings with muscle testing, we develop a unique insight into the cause(s) of your problem.
Resolving the Problem
With an understanding of your problem, we select from a variety of healing modalities, which may include:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Joint mobilization
- Acupuncture meridian therapy
- Nutrition supplementation
- Osteopathic cranial techniques
- Muscle rehabilitation
As the discipline of Applied Kinesiology has been refined, it has broadened to include the evaluation of vascular, lymphatic systems and cerebrospinal fluid circulation.
