Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a non-invasive system of evaluating body function through the use of manual muscle testing. It works by assessing how well a muscle is firing (We call this turned on if the muscle is working and turned off if the muscle is not working the way it should.) and uses that information as a diagnostic tool to determine what treatment should be used and where that treatment should be applied.
Treatments may involve specific adjustments of joints, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, various reflex procedures, clinical nutrition, dietary management, evaluating environmental irritants, and counselling skills.
AK diagnosis and treatments procedures are developed and approved by the International College of Applied Kinesiology Board of Standards. These protocols are refined from many disciplines including Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Medicine, Dentistry, Acupuncture, Biochemistry, Psychology, Homeopathy, and Naturopathy etc. Members of these professions share knowledge through the publications and conferences of the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK).
