What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Kinesiology, also known as biomechanics, is the study of body movement. Applied kinesiology (AK) which is also know as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands. Applied Kinesiology utilizes non invasive manual muscle testing as a functional, neurologic evaluation tool to assess the Structural, Chemical and Mental aspects of one’s triad of health.

What Is It Used For?

Applied Kinesiology aims to detect and correct imbalances that may relate to traumas, toxins or thoughts. There are many different factors that affect and contribute to our health and well-being and using applied kinesiology (manual muscle response testing) as a diagnostic tool, can help patients achieve optimum health and well-being.

What Should I Expect?

During your visit, Dr. Kristin will take a full medical and lifestyle history and work with you, with your consent, to identify and address your specific individual concerns and areas causing stress. During your first session, she'll ask you to place your arms, legs or head into specific positions and then apply a light pressure against the muscle that is being tested. She will identify imbalances which may be contributing to your loss of health and well-being. Based on biofeedback from the muscle test, Dr. Kristin will devise a plan and share ways that will help restore balance.
