When Dr. George Goodheart first started testing and fixing muscles with treating the origin and insertion of a muscle, he didn’t know the farther reaching relationships that muscles had in the body. But then he started to find clues that the muscles were related to the internal organs of the body.
Talking to the inner body
With the realization that muscles are related to organs, applied kinesiology doctors were able to communicate directly with the body. Combining muscle testing with what we have learned as health care professionals, we are able to see specifically what organs needed as a therapy, dietary supplement, etc., and we are able to monitor their progress all with muscle testing.

The one technique that started AK is still one of the most powerful tools out there. Correcting muscle function with the origin and insertion technique. It worked for Dr. Goodheart in 1964 and still works today. Correcting the weak muscle instead of trying to stretch or weaken a shortened/tight muscle is our secret to success when it comes to musculoskeletal problems. Combining this with proper treatment of trigger points is what sets AK practitioners apart from other in the health care field.
AK muscle work basics
Watch this video to learn what we do to correct muscle imbalances. These basics are what is taught in the first few sessions of the applied kinesiology basic course. When they are combined properly, the results seem miraculous.
Applied kinesiology is a muscle testing diagnostic technique that was discovered in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart. He found that an inhibited (weak) muscle can be turned back on instantly if you know what the cause of the problem is. This helps with quick healing the toughest musculoskeletal problems.
He later figured out that you can use facilitated (strong) muscles to use as an indicator to find out what is going on in the body. This helps to heal deeper, underlying health problems off all types quickly and efficiently. Continue reading →
Since electric lights have been popular, our natural daily cycles have changed.
As a holistic doctor, I have to look at all parts of a person’s life to see if there is something negatively influencing their health. Today’s society creates a lifestyle that can cause some major health problems. We all know some of the basics that are preached by health care practitioners in the natural field:
Whole food diet
Good balance of cardio and anaerobic exercise
Using natural personal products
There is something that not many doctors will touch upon: a patient’s daily schedule. If we think about Paleo living, the first thing that we think about is food. But there is much more to consider- a Paleo lifestyle. Continue reading →
Acupuncture meridians are defined paths of energy that flow through the body. They can even be measured in dead bodies with an ohm meter, so there is nothing unscientific about them. Here is the crash course on acupuncture meridian:
Each acupuncture meridian is also related to an organ in the body
Each meridian/organ combo is related to a 2 hour period of time in our 24 hour day
This is the time that the particular meridian/organ is strongest in your body
At the opposite side of the clock is when the meridian/organ combo is weakest in your body
A symptom that my reoccur at the same time every day may be due to an imbalance in the meridian timing
There hasn’t been an Applied Kinesiology muscle testing basic certification course in the Washington, DC for quite some time. In 2015 that is going to change. We are currently looking at a few different locations in the Washington, DC metro area to hold the classes.
What is involved in the AK basic course?
This is an eight weekend course that takes what you have learned as a health care professional and apply it, in a holistic way, using muscle testing to help with diagnosis. You will learn how to look at the body in a new way that will make your patients think that you are superhuman in nature. Continue reading →
Dr. David Leaf speaks on some of the misconceptions about Applied Kinesiology.
In 1964 Dr. George Goodheart stumbled onto a weak muscle and miraculously fixed it! That started what we now know as Applied Kinesiology. Since then Dr. Goodheart and many, many other doctors that followed his lead have developed many things in Applied Kinesiology (AK).
In 1974, the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK) was formed. It is the goal of the college to teach health care professionals the techniques of AK and there are also standards of what can be taught. The ICAK has stuck to what was feasible form a scientific point of view, explainable with our knowledge of anatomy, physiology, psychology, physics, etc. Continue reading →
