The current health system teaches us to see disease as the enemy that must be eliminated at all costs. We have long forgotten the premise that disease is merely a messenger to inform us of long-term imbalance in our bodies. Something we are now too busy or scared to acknowledge. We need a method to communicate with the body to find these imbalances. This is where Applied Kinesiology comes in as an important diagnostic tool.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing.
The doctor using AK finds a muscle that is unbalanced and uses many procedures to determine why that muscle is not functioning properly. The doctor works out the treatment that will best balance the patient's muscles.
Treatments may involve joint adjusting, cranial release techniques, dietary changes, clinical supplements, emotional release techniques, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.
AK uses the Triad of Health. That is Chemical, Mental and Structural factors that balance the major health categories.
The Triad of Health is interactive and all sides must be evaluated and working to correct the underlying cause of a problem. A health problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides. For example, a chemical imbalance can cause mental symptoms. AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad's balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides.
Applied Kinesiology is postgraduate study. AK skills are developed and approved by the International College of Applied Kinesiology Board of Standards. Our practitioners are all AK certified. 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.
Applied Kinesiology helps us to listen to our body's symptoms and realise their causes. We can then learn to eliminate the cause and prevent the symptoms returning or progressing to illness and disease. If we were attentive to our body’s cries for help on a daily basis we could access our true potential.
