What is Applied Kinesiology?
Let your body talk, it has many stories to tell.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system which evaluates our structural, mental/emotional and chemical functions. It employs manual muscle testing along with other standard diagnostic methods. Manipulation, diet, orthomolecular supplementation, the acupuncture meridian system, exercise and education are used therapeutically to help restore balance and maintain well-being.
Dr. George Goodheart discovered the importance of weak muscles and their clinical implications in 1964. He researched, lectured and wrote about them for the rest of his life. He was the first to observe that in the absence of congenital or pathologic anomaly, postural distortion is often associated with muscles that fail to meet the demands of muscle tests designed to maximally isolate specific muscles.
“Lin uses kinesiology to test my muscles which tells her where my body has imbalances or symptoms before she treats me. Its almost like she is talking to my body, and then puts it back the way it should be. I always feel so much better afterwards!” – H
What is Muscle Testing?
Manual muscle testing is like having a conversation with the nervous system.
Nerves exit the spine and travel to muscles, organs and other structures. An association has been found between the muscles and organs supplied by the same neurological circuit.
By testing muscles responses, we can get an idea of what is happening with the individual specifically, rather than just what we expect to find for a particular condition.
We are all individual and every person with the same condition has a different route to that condition or problem, meaning they may have a different exit strategy.
“He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything!”
“I have always had a slight dip in my iron levels during the winter time, I generally can’t give blood then, so when Lin tested me I was surprised that she could tell this from her biochemical tests. Since then I have continued to follow Lin’s advice and my aches and pains, stress levels, and energy have all improved. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lin, she is very professional and knowledgeable!” – Sarah Howell
What can Kinesiology be Used for?

- Structural, Muscle and Joint issues – to determine the specific area of joint that needs help
- Sports injuries – test to determine when the body is ready for a particular task or impact
- Neurological Reflexes
- Emotional issues and their impact on the body
- Ask the body what it needs to help correct an imbalance
