Applied Kinesiology

“AK fills the current modern day gap between how your body is feeling and how well you are listening to it. AK listens to your body’s story until you learn how to. If you were attentive to your body’s cries for help on a daily basis you could truly live each day to its fullest.”

Applied Kinesiology


The current health system teaches us to see disease as the enemy that must be eliminated at all costs. But symptoms and disease are merely messengers to warn us about long-term imbalance within our bodies. They are our body’s way of asking for help.

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is diagnostic tool that helps communicate where these imbalances are in the body. Using manual muscle testing, we can test for structural imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, toxic overloads and mental or emotional patterns. We can then find a solution that will best address these imbalances within your emotional or physical body.

We look at your body like an onion as we peel back the layers built up to protect against the original core problem.

Restoring Balance


The solutions we find may involve adjusting the spine, cranial release techniques, dietary changes, clinical supplements, emotional release techniques, evaluating environmental irritants or various other hands-on techniques.

The “Triad of Health” represents the idea that health is made up of three things: physical, chemistry and emotions. All three must be evaluated and working optimally to correct the underlying cause of your problem.

A health problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides. For example, anxiety (emotional) can create an upset tummy (physical). AK enables your chiropractor to evaluate the triad's balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced sides.

Regulation & Qualifications


Applied Kinesiology is different from Kinesiology. Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a postgraduate study only offered to qualified health professionals with a graduate degree, whereas Kinesiology doesn’t require any pre-requisite study.

AK skills are developed and approved by the International College of Applied Kinesiology Board of Standards. AK skills are refined from many disciplines including Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Medicine, Dentistry, Acupuncture, Biochemistry, Psychology, Homeopathy, and Naturopathy. AK was founded and developed by chiropractor Dr. George J. Goodheart, Jr. in 1964.
