Applied Kinesiology

Developed by Dr. George Goodheart in the 1960’s, AK is a remarkable method of manually testing muscles in the body to query the body’s different systems.
Each muscle has an affiliation with one of the acupuncture meridians and with an organ, and has neuro vascular and neuro lymphatic points. There are also established connections with individual teeth, cranial structures and nutrients.

By applying simple resistance tests to muscles the AK practitioner can quickly get a direct reading from the body on virtually all health matters. For instance, a weak sterno-clavicular muscle can indicate a) a local injury b) a stomach weakness c) a Vagus nerve problem d) a lower 4th tooth disorder e) a spinal lesion at T6. If the muscle is too strong it would indicate an over-activity of one of the associated parts.

Muscle testing is readily adapted to food sensitivity and allergy testing, and can also be used to test medicines and food supplements for effectiveness. It will indicate not just what acupuncture meridian needs treatment, but the precise point for maximum effectiveness.
Dr John Diamond took Dr Goodheart’s work and developed it in another direction, finding that the body responded just as accurately to verbal as to physical challenges. So we can ‘ask’ the body about not just its physical but also its emotional and psychological well being.
Cameron Dawson integrated both approaches with his own vibrational medicine to create the Dawson Program, another powerful and flexible healing system, which often succeeds where all else fails.

Kinesiology of whatever variant is especially suited to use by an osteopath or chiropractor, as many of the findings require physical corrections for quick resolution. It also dovetails very well with acupuncture and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

  1. Yes indeed, Terri. We use kinesiology (muscle testing) to test for allergies and sensitivities.
    Please ring 02890425953 for an appointment.

  2. I was diagnosed with MS some years ago, I am not sure if this is accurate. I have seen a cranial/ jaw specialist who believes that issue is jaw, spinal alignment. I saw some progress with mouth guards etc initially but since having dental work completed, have not been able to see any improvements. In fact it seems to be worse now. I would continue seeing the speacialist except he is in London and visits back and forward are epensive especially if I need to stay a few days. My issues are inability to walk any distance without assistance (less than 50 metres), I am very wobbly when walking any distance or moving around generally. I do think that there is some evidence that my alignment is off and AI have no other classic MS sytoms e.g brain fog, fatigue. I am hoping that maybe you could assess me at the clinic.

  4. hi Ralph,
    I was wondering if you can help with a hiatal hernia. My partner has this and the Surgeon said it is twisted and that he needs aparaesophageal hernia repair operation.
    Is there anyway that kenisiology could cure this so that he doesn’t need the operation?
    many thanks
