What is Applied Kinesiology?

AK muscle testing, what is it?What is AK?

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. 

The original muscle testing method

Since 1964, many others have taken the idea of using a muscle test to get information about what is going on with the body. What sets AK and many of the other methods apart is the base of knowledge that has been accumulated. The basic AK program is developed as a post doctorate course. It is designed to apply what a health care professional has learned in school to muscle testing.

Applied kinesiology has taken information from many different heath disciplines. This body of knowledge is taught through the International College of Applied Kinesiology. With many different points of view on health being taught with muscle testing, a holistic approach toward a patient’s health is achieved.
