Applied Kinesiology

Simply put, applied kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. It was developed in the 1960’s when Dr. Goodheart observed that a weak muscle could be treated and the strength immediately improved. He also discovered factors that could negatively affect the strength and functioning of a muscle. It was based on these discoveries that Dr. Goodheart developed a technique that has helped practitioners evaluate and apply therapies that will be most helpful to their patients.
