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, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances or other organ or gland problems. Practitioners contend that by correcting this muscle weakness, you can help heal a problem in the associated internal organ.
What is applied kinesiology used for?
Practitioners claim that applied kinesiology can be used to diagnose and treat nervous system problems, nutritional deficiencies or excesses, imbalances in the body’s “energy pathways” (known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as meridians), and many other health concerns.
The theory of AK was developed by George Goodheart, Jr., a Michigan chiropractor who began to write and lecture about his ideas in 1964. Applied kinesiology practitioners are often chiropractors, but may also be osteopathic physicians, dentists, or even conventional physicians. According to the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK), practitioners must first be trained in their respective fields before they can study applied kinesiology in a postgraduate setting.
While suggested uses of AK range from abdominal pain to cancer, diabetes, headache, learning disabilities, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, vertigo and many other health problems, scientific evidence demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of AK for these conditions is limited, at best.
Long-Distance & Surrogate Muscle Testing
An invaluable tool of Kinesiology is “long-distance” or “surrogate” muscle testing, where I muscle test myself as your surrogate, to receive information from your Spiritual System. Just as energy (like radio waves) can travel over distances, so can the energy of thought. This allows muscle testing to be done for people who may be thousands of miles away.
Using muscle testing, I am able to accurately identify your energetic blockages – the root causes of your distress and what has been preventing you from realizing your goals. I can then determine the quickest and most thorough way of permanently removing the blockages from wherever they are being held.
After doing your Clearing, I then re-check the areas that were cleared to be sure that the blockages have been completely removed.

Applied Kinesiology – Food & Supplements
Your body knows things you don’t.
You can find out what it knows.
The human body is sophisticated and complex and instantly responds to many things. A simple example is when you get too hot, the brain tells your body to sweat so you will cool down.
Kinesiology, which is a study of muscle movement is a way for the brain to communicate your body’s needs. When testing a need for a certain food or supplement, the brain will cause a subtle, yet measurable reaction to the body.
You may be more familiar with this science than you realize. It’s likely you have heard of someone experiencing angina (heart pain) who has been prescribed a nitroglycerin tablet under the tongue. The amazing thing is that the heart responds before the medicine reaches it. When the medicine is placed under the tongue, the electrical charge of protons and electrons that form the nitroglycerine is carried along electrical pathways to an specific area of the brain. The brain immediately recognizes the presence of the beneficial medicine and instructs the heart to relax.
Kinesiology, muscle testing follows the same principle when a food or supplement causes an immediate either positive (strong) or negative (weak) body muscle reaction.
Nutritional food and supplement needs vary greatly between individuals. It is a well-known fact that needs significantly vary from person to person influenced by many factors. Your lifestyle influences include age, sex, weight, exercise, blood type, personality type, genetics, heredity, quality of food, water, and air intake, type of work, stress level, quality of sleep, and environmental surroundings.
Over the past decades, a variety of kinesiology techniques have been successfully used by thousands of medical professionals to help you clearly see which food or supplements are right for you. An important consideration is that the supplement industry uses averages in label recommendations.
