Applied Kinesiology is a muscle testing technique utilized by Naturopaths, Chiropractors as well as other practitioners across the world. It is based on specific muscle testing and the Chinese medicine meridians. It is taught that each organ has a related muscle in the body which can help give insight into someone"s health beyond what can be found on a basic physical exam. Based on the triad of health which includes the physical, biochemical, and emotional aspects of one"s health, Applied Kinesiology uses muscle testing to address each factor in order to achieve overall wellness. Without addressing all three aspects of the triad and ensuring that all three are functioning, it can be difficult for patient"s to reach their optimal health.
