Applied Kinesiology

What is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic system which gives your body a voice. It uses a system of manual muscle tests which allow your body to provide real-time feedback to you and your practitioner, helping you both understand what is going on, and enabling your practitioner to get to the root cause of the problem.



Introduced in 1964 by American Chiropractor, George Goodheart, Applied Kinesiology began as a means to evaluate patterns of neurological and muscular imbalance and has since been developed into a system which allows a more holistic insight into our body’s responses and compensation strategies, including nutrition and digestive health.


As taught by the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK), Applied Kinesiology is a postgraduate specialism, taught only to healthcare professionals who have already qualified in their particular fields, including Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Medical Doctors.


Used in conjunction with other standard diagnostic methods including your case history, physical examination, medical imaging and blood tests, it can help give us a more comprehensive view of how your body’s responses fit together in the big picture.  As a result, Applied Kinesiology can often aid in solving more complex or longstanding problems where multiple factors are involved, or where core issues have remained previously undetected.
