Muscle Testing


Muscle Testing

Get instant access to your body's own intelligence through its bioelectric fields

Applied Kinesiology (AK), also known as “muscle testing” is a unique system, done in-person, that uses the body's own bioelectricity to evaluate the health of your body. The body works hard to stay balanced. When it becomes imbalanced, it sends its own electric signal to these areas and the related reflex is "switched on" by this frequency to stimulate repair. If the body is healthy and in balance, no bioelectrical reflex is found. This form of testing and the test points used are closely related to acupuncture.

What is AK?

In the AK evaluation, the test points are utilized by using what looks like muscle testing. The AK practitioner points to a reflex and pushes on the extended arm to test for resistance. When a reflex is active or electrical the arm being tested goes down because the previously strong arm can not resist the downward pressure.

Does AK diagnose health problems?

No, it is not a diagnosis, prescription, cure or treatment. It is information that comes from the bodies own acupuncture system. This information is put together with physical exam, blood tests, x-rays and other tests that we do in the office. It is with this complied information that we treat our patients.

AK has over 50 years of accuracy

AK has been around for over 50 years. It was originally developed and researched by an extraordinary chiropractor, Dr. George Goodheart, DC. Over the years this techniques has been taught all over the world to every type of doctor and health care provider.

AK uncovers health issues even medicine doesn't find

A great degree of accuracy is possible with AK. In fact, it's so accurate it will uncover problems that traditional medicine misses. For instance, it can find:

  • Deficiencies at a sub-clinical level--even when the problem is so small that the person may not be aware of its existence

  • The body's structural needs--telling you if you have an unknown subluxation, tight muscle or perhaps a misaligned vertebrae, etc.

  • Any physical imbalances or illnesses--revealingthings like diabetic tendencies, heart problems, liver malfunctions and lots more

  • Nutritional challenges--indicating a lack of vitamins, minerals, enzymes or amino acids, for example

There are NO x-ray machines, expensive diagnostic tools or lab work that can analyze the body the way that AK does. This is why we perform AK testing on almost all our patients.

AK saves time and money

Prior to having the availability of AK testing, you only had access to costly, time consuming lab tests that required all kinds of nail-biting waiting time to get results. All of that was usually followed by a big expensive bill, especially if several things were evaluated at one time.

With AK, however, you're dealing with only one health care practitioner who gives you answers to all your health needs right on the spot. So you save the time and expense of consulting with health care providers that have extensive knowledge of biochemistry, physiology, and nutrition, for instance. And, no more specialists who might charge you an arm and a leg and then still give you an educated guess.

Now with AK, the educated guess is no longer necessary.

AK gives you more than any other health evaluations

When you come in for Applied Kinesiology testing, we will:

  • Analyze 37 major reflex points on your body that correspond to a specific function of your body, an organ or a tissue

  • Check each reflex point for its activation by the body (each of these points is derived from the ancient system of Chinese acupuncture—a system that has not changed points in thousands of years because it’s both accurate and precise)

  • Explain to you the meaning of each reflex point where there’s an imbalance so that you can understand its affect on your health and make intelligent decisions

  • Offer you the best available nutritional supplements to help your body recover more quickly

  • Present you with ideas and information on how to adjust your diet and eating habits

  • Suggest other tried and proven alternative products and services to help your body maintain and increase its recovery process

  • Give you the benefit of over 30 years of nutritional success that has helped thousands of people improve their health
