WHAT IS APPLIED KINESIOLOGY?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis through muscle testing to examine how a person’s body is functioning. In Applied Kinesiology the practitioner uses muscle testing as part of the diagnostic procedure as an indicator tool to assess the body’s structural, chemical or emotional aspects of health and identifies how well a person’s body is functioning. Most commonly the practitioner will find a muscle which tests “weak” and thus attempts to investigate what is causing the muscle to function ineffectively.
AK utilises the triad of health to explain health problems that arise. The triad of health is represented by an equilateral triangle which evaluates the structural, chemical and mental aspects of health. Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation or mobilisation, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counselling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.
AK is not a stand-alone diagnostic tool but is used in conjunction with other diagnostic testing.
