Applied Kinesiology, a highly effective treatment, focuses on whole body health, enabling health investigation without intrusion. Applied kinesiology allows the skilled health practitioner, such as Dr. Ulery, to evaluate your functional illness, which typically precedes the onset of disease. Applied kinesiology involves testing the muscles using acupuncture and other reflex points to determine what or where a patient is out of balance.
This highly individual, in-depth system of analysis allows your doctor to assess various aspects of the state of your health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances along with neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, reduced joint motion or joint fixation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) was developed in 1964 by Dr. George Goodhart. AK utilizes Muscle Response Testing (MRT), or Autonomic Response Testing (ART), to evaluate the three functional aspects of your well being:
- Biomechanical / Structural
- Biochemical / Nutritional / Detox
- Emotional / Energetic
Applied Kinesiology Starts with the Spine
A spine that is performing optimally is a key component not only to structural health but to overall health as well. The spinal nerves communicate with the body’s muscles, organs, and glands how to operate. The spine also houses the acupuncture meridian of energy, governing all aspects of the flow of energy throughout the body.
Supporting the Spine and the Joints of the Body
The muscles are the main sources of support for the spine and the joints of the body. However, if there are problems with the spine, the muscles can be negatively affected. An Applied Kinesiologist, or a muscle testing doctor, can assess which muscles are causing the problems and help adjust you so that your body’s muscles to work properly again. Once your muscles, joints, and spine are working in harmony, your chronic problems may diminish.
