Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a natural, holistic approach to creating and maintaining optimal health and well-being. This system understands that we are energetic beings living in a sea of energy. Bioelectrical energy, also known as chi, flows through various pathways called meridians throughout the body. When this energy flows unobstructed, we feel and perform our best physically, mentally and emotionally. 

Applied Kinesiology is both an art and a science, which uses muscle testing to communicate with the body's innate intelligence to get a wide variety of information about the state of the body/mind and how things affect it. This method focuses on the Muscle-Meridian-Organ relationship. Every muscle in the body is linked to an acupuncture meridian and a vital organ or gland. There are a few key points to keep in mind:

  • Physical stress can affect your mental and emotional state, as well as your biochemistry.

  • Your biochemistry affects your physical body and your mood.

  • Your thoughts and emotions affect your biochemistry and your physical body.

 

When everything is functioning optimally, the muscle will test strong during the muscle test. But if there is an imbalance in any part of this triad, for example if the organ or meridian is under stress, the muscle will test weak. This provides valuable information about potential energy blockages. Once these blockages are discovered, there are a variety of methods that can be used to restore balance, some of which are:

  • Treating the Neurolymphatic Reflexes of the body for pain relief and energy enhancement.

  • Lightly holding the Neurovascular Points located mostly in the head, which correspond to the different organs, muscles, and meridians.

  • Tracing the affected meridians
