Applied Kinesiology in Payneham

Why do we muscle test? Our version of Chiropractic is targeted and precise because we use Applied Kinesiology (AK).

AK is the advanced diagnostic tool renowned for its holistic approach and ability to get to the root cause of an issue. Muscle and reflex testing is a way of “asking the body” where and what the dysfunction within the body and nervous system is. We’re not testing your ‘strength’, per se. Chiropractors Dr Dave and Dr Alison have trained extensively in this method for the most precise results possible.

The nervous system is the master system of the body; the brain is its powerhouse. It controls everything: every feeling, movement and physiological process. When stress overwhelms its ability to adapt and release this pressure, symptoms may result. AK allows us to tailor care specifically to your needs, often finding imbalances before they become a full-blown problem.

Developed by the late Dr George Goodheart in the 1960s, AK is now used by many types of healthcare practitioners. A unique blend of various disciplines, AK uses a series of tests to determine imbalances within vertebrae, cranium, peripheral joints, ligaments, organs, tendons, posture, gait, acupuncture meridians, reflexes, and neurological signs to guide diagnosis and patient care, offering a deeper understanding of the root cause of your health problem

Establishing Better Communication

Our bodies want to be well and constantly communicate with us, trying to bring us back into balance. Unfortunately, we can’t always understand what it’s saying. That’s where applied kinesiology comes in – muscle testing allows us to translate the body’s wisdom better. It’s a noninvasive way to quickly and accurately assess your health needs instead of guessing based on symptoms.

This unique insight into your health, drawn from this muscle testing, allows us to select from various healing modalities, including chiropractic, functional biochemistry/naturopathy and massage therapy. Our holistic approach to health helps restore the body’s innate self-healing abilities and create wellness from within.

If we determine that AK is suitable for you, we will discuss how it fits into your recommended care plan. Rest assured, AK testing does not cause discomfort; in fact, many find it beneficial in identifying the root cause of their health issues.
