Applied Kinesiology : Muscle Response in Diagnosis Therapy and Preventive Medicine
A practical and reliable diagnostic tool that has emerged over the past twenty-five years, kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of bodily motion, especially muscle movements and their relationship to our body systems. Viewing the body as a balanced triad of structure, chemistry, and mentality, applied kinesiology gauges muscle response to pinpoint underlying physical problems. Within 30 minutes, a competent kinesiologist can evaluate bodily functions and provide a readout on the workings of the glands, organs, lymphatic system, circulatory and nervous systems, circulation, and muscle-bone structure. Applied Kinesiology demonstrates how this technique can be of practical use for everyone.

HEALTH / BODYWORK Applied kinesiology, a noninvasive tool for health diagnosis and treatment, has been used by chiropractors, naturopaths, physical therapists, and other medical professionals for nearly half a century. Applied kinesiology teaches that our health depends on a balance of the structural, chemical, and mental/emotional dimensions of the body, and it utilizes these interrelationships in diagnostic techniques. Using this "holistic triad" approach, applied kinesiologists test the strength of specific muscles to determine the working health of the glands, organs, and bones as well as the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. The list of health problems that applied kinesiology can successfully address is impressive and still growing. Practitioners of applied kinesiology have a detailed knowledge of muscle movements and their relationship to the many complex systems of the body. Authors TOM and CAROLE VALENTINE, working closely with chiropractors and applied kinesiologists Douglas Hetrick and David Walther, explain how applied kinesiology tests muscles for a weak or strong response and thereby pinpoints the underlying causes of a health problem at its early stages, successfully addressing chronic and metabolic problems that have resisted all other treatment.
