Applied Kinesiology (AK) can be defined as the clinical application of the study of movement and function; it is functional neurology.
AK is a system of testing and treatment that is used to assess the body's functional aberrations.
These functional aberrations may be but not limited to:
- Imbalance in the Chinese Meridian systems
Therapies to induce or restore individual normal function include but not limited to:
- Chiropractic adjustive therapy
- Cranial techniques
- Therapeutic massage modalities
- Reflex therapies
- Acupuncture therapies
- Exercise & stretches
- Nutritional supplementation
- Emotional support or modalities
- Lifestyle changes
With the aim of decreasing cumulative noxious stimuli below threshold and allowing the body to heal itself.
AK does not replace standard examination procedures such as neurological and orthopedic testing, blood laboratory work or X-rays but rather it is another examination tool at the doctor's disposal.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a continually evolving system that provides the doctor with the skills and knowledge to purposefully, systematically and logically ascertain the optimal treatment of the patient. AK embraces the work of all individuals and disciplines who endeavor to diminish the suffering of humanity.
AK attempts to unify such diverse knowledge and techniques into a usable scientific system for one purpose: To bring patients to a higher level of health and help them to actualize their potential.
(Thanks to Dr. Charles for the use of his definition.)
Applied Kinesiology Is Not:
Testing nutritional needs by holding bottles in your hand or placing pills on the skin.
Touch for health or any other forms of evaluation using muscle testing as a simple yes-no answer system.
Testing using mental telepathy.
A simplistic cookie cutter approach to treatment.
