Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Applied Kinesiology (AK) was developed in 1964 by Dr. George Goodhart. AK utilizes Muscle Testing -also called Muscle Response Testing (MRT) or Autonomic Response Testing (ART)-to evaluate the three functional aspects of well being.

  • Biomechanical (structural)
  • Biochemical
  • Emotional

AK allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. This highly individualized, in-depth system of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient’s state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. ¬†AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.

One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment!
