Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of energy medicine that evaluates structural, biochemical, emotional, and energetic aspects of health using muscle testing. The basic theory states that a weak or “inhibited muscle” can be used to detect underlying imbalances in the body, while correction of the imbalance will strengthen the same muscle.
AK relies on a bioelectrical test using your own body to test the circuits in another person. It does not rely on strength testing muscles, as is studied in academic kinesiology. AK Practitioners use muscle testing to “ask the body”
AK has become a dynamic movement in healthcare in its relatively short existence since Dr. George Goodheart’s initial discoveries in 1964.
