What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology is a form of alternative medicine. It’s a way of accessing the body to find if there’s an imbalance. This holistic approach is centered on the three aspects of health—”the Triad of Health”—that commonly account for illness:

  • Chemical (The food you eat, your environment, the chemicals in your body)
  • Structural (Physical aspects like spinal alignment and muscle balance)
  • Emotional

Dr. Kristi Vaughan of Vaughan Vitality Wellness is certified to use this unique treatment approach to find the root cause of your medical issues, whether it’s a chronic illness or other unexplained symptoms. Schedule your appointment today!

How Applied Kinesiology Works

Applied Kinesiology specialists utilize manual muscle-strength testing to determine bodily strengths and weaknesses. It is often used in combination with other practices.

Whereas chiropractic focuses on the spine and your bone structure, Applied Kinesiology tests the strength of your organs and examines your muscles and other parts of the body.

At Vaughan Vitality Wellness, we use Applied Kinesiology to diagnose your underlying medical issues. In many cases, we can pinpoint nervous system problems and nutritional defficiencies. In addition, it can be used to determine issues related to specific organs, mental stress and muscle tension.

Types of Testing

During an appointment, our certified Applied Kinesiologist Specialist will introduce you to several different tests. These tests are used to narrow down potential problem areas that prevent optimal wellness. After diagnosis, your doctor will be able to prescribe a recommended treatment plan.

Types of testing include:

  • Manual Muscle Test – Resisting force applied to a muscle or muscle group
  • Delta Test, or “arm-pull-down” test – Resisting attempts to apply downward force to an extended arm
  • Nutrient Test – Muscle exposure to different stimulants to potentially pinpoint allergies
  • Therapy Localization – Examines muscle response to having a hand placed over an area
  • Additional Allergen Testing
  • Food Sensitivity Testing
