Applied Kinesiology is an interdisciplinary approach to healthcare, which draws together core elements of complimentary therapies, creating a more unified approach to the diagnosis and treatment of functional illnesses. Functional assessment measures are used in posture, gait analysis, manual muscle testing, range of motion, static palpation and motion analysis. These used with standard methods of clinical history, physical exam findings, etc., develop a clinical impression of the unique physiological condition of each patient including an impression of the patients functional physiological status. This can then be used as a guide to the application of conservative therapies.

Muscle testing is used as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. When properly applied, the outcome will determine the best form of therapy for the patient. Drawing together the core elements of many complimentary therapies, it provides an interdisciplinary approach to healthcare.

AK proponents claim that nutritional deficiencies, allergies, and other adverse reactions to foods or nutrients can be detected by having the patient chew or suck on them or by placing them on the tongue so that the patient salivates. Some practitioners advise that the test material merely be held in the patient's hand or placed on another part of the body. A few even perform "surrogate testing" in which the arm strength of a parent is tested to determine problems in a child held by the parent. According to a 1987 book for the general public written with help from two leading chiropractic AK practitioners:

Many muscle-testing proponents assert that nutrients tested in these various ways will have an immediate effect: "good" substances will make specific muscles stronger, whereas "bad" substances will cause weaknesses that "indicate trouble with the organ or other tissue on the same nerve, vascular, nutrition, etc., grouping." A leading AK text, for example, states:

If a patient is diagnosed as having a liver disturbance and the associated pectoralis major [chest muscle] tests weak, have the patient chew a substance that may help the liver, such as vitamin A. If . . the vitamin A is appropriate treatment, the muscle will test strong [6].

When doing any kind of support at Infinite Wellness you will find that we, when needed, utilize many forms of testing such as laboratory (blood), stool, saliva, and at every appointment we utilize Biofeedback in conjunction with Applied Kinesiology. There have been many questions by client about what Applied Kinesiology actually is and how and why this method has been so effective in helping to determine protocols for patients.

Described by Susan L. Levy, D.C. and Carol Lehr, M.A., in their book “Your Body Can Talk,” on the frontier of healing arts, Applied Kinesiology, or muscle testing, applies to a non-traditional, bio-energetic method which allows us to “unlock” or ascertain the body’s hidden messages, and obtain insightful answers to health problems you have been searching for through more traditional approaches, and can help determine which nutrients, and/or treatment principles that will be required in order to sustain homeostasis in the body.

All messages from your sensory, visual, auditory and other nerve endings, including all thoughts, are processed through the brain. The brain must immediately decide what is important and what is not at any time. The part of your subconscious mind which regulates that special software program in your body is called the Reticular Activating System. This system functions as a filtering system—working to filter data into either your conscious or unconscious. Needed information lies just below the surface for recall and specifically to monitor the body. If the system records an imbalance, you are notified immediately by your body and mind working together to create a symptom.
