What is it and where did it begin?
Applied Kinesiology is a technique that was developed in 1964 by a Chiropractor called Dr George Goodheart.
Applied Kinesiology (or AK as practitioners refer to it) uses muscle testing to direct the Chiropractor to find the underlying cause/s of a presenting symptom within the body, be that structural, biochemical or emotional. Identifying the potential root cause of a symptom can help the patient hold applied structural corrections for longer.
What is the educational background of an Applied Kinesiologist?
To practice AK, one must first obtain a university degree in an approved mode of primary health care such as chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy or medicine. After that, a certificate course of over 100 hours classroom study is undertaken.
