What is Applied Kinesiology?
Imagine that you were working with a naturopath, chiropractor, nutritionist and homeopath for your health problems. Even better, imagine if you had your health care team all in one room and they were all working together on your case and they understood what each other did! Would you not feel like you were in good hands and getting the best of natural health care fields?
If this sounds appealing to you, then you need to be under the care of an Applied Kinesiologist. Applied Kinesiology ("AK") is a diagnostic technique based on Chinese medicine in which every muscle in the body is related to an organ, gland, or acupuncture meridian. Through testing specific muscles, the doctor can locate structural, biochemical and emotional dysfunction in the body and identify the proper method of correction.
When Applied Kinesiology is used in its optimal fashion, it is truly holistic medicine. With this system as a complement to conventional medical testing, we look to the structure of the patient's body to give us information and feedback to find out what the problem is and why it is there. Then we can find out what type of treatment is needed to restore proper function and observe our results to know that we are treating the cause. This removes the guess work and speeds the patient's recovery.
