Applied Kinesiology

Woman and Man working out to improve muscle toneApplied Kinesiology borrows from many different disciplines, using muscle testing as a guide for diagnosis and treatment. We utilize a 32 step protocol which is a physiologically based, basic science driven, neurological hierarchy for the ordered application of clinical procedures and techniques to best address your health concern.

Our specific Applied Kinesiology protocol is all about excitation and inhibition of neural pathways. It utilizes the manual muscle testing response as a reflection of the status of the nervous system for the muscle being tested. Sensory receptor based diagnostic challenges result in muscle testing outcomes that are then used to direct appropriate therapy.

The ancient Chinese observed that every muscle in the body links to a specific organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. This connection is again observed in neuroscience and utilized in Applied Kinesiology. Testing the strength of a related muscle reveals the condition of the organ or tissue. Muscle testing helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems in your body. It can also direct us to the best treatment options to restore health.
