Applied Kinesiology is a form of chiropractic treatment developed by Dr. George Goodheart, a physician who determined that muscles, beyond their obvious function as bone-supporters, are universally related to specific organs. By identifying and treating weakened muscles, applied kinesiology addresses problems in corresponding organs and glands, and vice versa. Treatment techniques include deep massage, realignment, goading pressure on bone and muscle attachment points to strengthen the muscles involved and restore health. Applied kinesiology takes the whole person into consideration when determining treatment, examining diet and lifestyle as well as specific complaints and medical histories.
