Developed in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart, Applied Kinesiology uses the theory that every organ dysfunction has a corresponding muscle weakness. This approach seeks a balance of the structural, chemical and mental aspects of a person's health. According to the AK principle, having the three areas in balance leads to good health and general well-being.
To access the muscle response, a patient is given a manual muscle test in a targeted area. This isn't a test of strength; rather it's an evaluation of the muscle's tension and response. A poor response can indicate imbalances and stress in a particular area of the body.
