Applied Kinesiology

What is Applied Kinesiology (AK)?

Applied Kinesiology is a system using basic muscle testing for evaluating areas of dysfunction within the body. The method of AK is primarily concerned with the neuromuscular function and how it relates to the regulation of structure, chemical and mental physiology. It uses the principle that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism.

When visiting an AK Practitioner, expect to be involved, He will test for basic mechanical defects; the possible connection of visceral dysfunction (the function of the associated gland or organ); stress levels in the body; and where relevant, cranial and pelvic distortions also toxicity / allergy problems. Treatment can involve manipulative work, guidance in self-treatment, nutritional support and remedies coupled with treatment to aid stress related problems.

The Triad of Health

aspects of health influence each other.

Health is composed of structure, bio-chemical and mental factors, which must be equally, balanced producing the triad of health. When a person has ill health, at least one of these factors is involved and often two or three. The principle of AK is to analyse and check all three factors and treat any or all that are disrupted.
