Applied Kinesiology


Applied Kinesiology is a system (like orthopedics, radiology and many others) which evaluates  structural, chemical and mental aspects.  It employs muscle testing with other standard methods of diagnosis. Nutrition, manipulation, diet, acupressure, exercise and education are used therapeutically to help restore balance and maintain well being throughout life.  It is an integrative approach to gathering information from your body.

How Does It Work?

Muscles move bones, bones don’t move muscles.  Muscles can be balanced and working together (agonist & antagonist), turned up (facilitated), or turned down (inhibited).  You can see this when you are walking, riding a bike, or even chewing your dinner.

Nerves that come from the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) send and receive information to all muscles, and the same nerves that go to muscles also go to skin, organs, glands (like lymphatic, sweat, endocrine glands).  Every doctor in some way, shape, or form evaluates muscles!

Why Applied Kinesiology?

Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., who founded AK, knew like many others that health and life comes from integration of the body and not dis-integration of it.  Applied Kinesiology allows us to bridge Eastern and Western healing arts and modalities together.  This approach maximizes your body’s healing capacity results and allows the doctors to tailor their approach for each individual person. 

As we know, no doctor heals or cures disease, they remove irritations that block the natural healing process (such as acupuncture or chiropractic) or keep you alive long enough to heal yourself (like an ER doc or surgeon).  With Applied Kinesiology we can get to the root and find the most effective and direct route to healing.


“Applied Kinesiology recognizes that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism.  When health is lost, something is interfering with the body’s adaptability and it is unable to cope with the different environmental stresses.”

-Dr.  D. Walther
