Kinesiology originates from observations made in 1964 by Dr. George J. Goodheart, a chiropractic physician practicing in Detroit, Michigan. Kinesiology uses manual muscle testing to assess the patient's nervous system to find where an imbalance lies, and then decipher the easiest method of correcting it. Almost like asking your body what is wrong with it, and what is the best way to fix it.
“ Applied Kinesiology recognises that the body is a self-maintaining, self-correcting mechanism. When health is lost, something is interfering with the body’s adaptability, and it is unable to cope with the different environmental stresses. Examination effort is directed towards how the body is dysfunctioning, the cause of the dysfunction and finally, the therapeutic efforts that will enable it to regain and maintain health.” - David S. Walther.
