Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is the most encompassing of all the techniques I use. It is more than a technique. It is system of how to look at the body in a much more encompassing, holistic way. AK incorporates all the other techniques.
There are techniques that focus only on nutrition or only on adjusting, or only the meridian system or only on emotions or the movement of the cranial bones or the lymph system.
Applied Kinesiology integrates of all of those techniques. Part of the AK is a methodology uses relative strength of specific muscles (muscle testing) to determine overall body function and determine the best treatment. However, it is much more than that.
AK is about reading the signs of the body. Muscle testing is not the only method an AK doctor will use. He would palpate acupressure points and analyze posture. He might look at the tongue, eyebrows, eyes, hands, and fingernail. He could investigate stressful incidents in a person’s life that could be causing improper function, pain and problems.
Lab test and X-rays can also be included in the AK analysis. Think of AK as Chinese medicine using western language, advancements, and technology.
